Tips for making Blueberry Moon Milk:

In a pinch, dried or freeze-dried blueberries work well as a substitution.

The sunflower seeds can be omitted or replaced with any seeds of choice. Hemp or pumpkin seeds work well.

The peppermint extract can be replaced with a food-grade peppermint essential oil.

For a sugar-free version, this sugar-free sweetener works great at replacing maple syrup.

Alternatively, raw honey or coconut sugar can replace the maple syrup.

 

 

To Make Iced Blue Moon Milk:

  1. Blend all ingredients PLUS the addition of maple syrup/sweetener of choice.

  2. Do not heat. Simply strain, then pour over ice.

  3. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond or oat milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons raw sunflower seeds

  • 1 teaspoon unrefined coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract

Instructions

  • To a blender add all of the above ingredients sans maple syrup and mint leaves.
  • Blend until smooth and uniform.
  • Optionally strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer or nut milk bag. (I do not do this as I don’t mind any larger bits of berries or seeds settling in the bottom of my cup).
  • Heat your moon milk mixture over low-medium heat on the stove-top.
  • Stir in maple syrup or sweetener of choice. Whisk gently until foamy and heated throughout.
  • Pour into mug(s) and optionally garnish with fresh mint leaves.
  • Enjoy!

    Hi. I would like to try this recipe. Could you please let me know the calorie count per serving? The recipe says over 1,000 but that doesn’t make sense considering the ingredients. Thank you.
