❀ Edible Violet

Sweet Violet (Violet Odorata) is a species of flowering plant in the Viola family. The leaves and flowers (whether fresh or dried) are entirely edible, packed with Vitamin C and have a lovely sweet scent and flavor. As a medicine, Sweet Violet has cooling and moistening properties, is a great blood cleanser and packed with anti-inflammatory benefits, making it a fabulous choice for a moon milk.

💭 FAQ + Top Tips

Where do I find violets?

You can purchase dried violet flowers and dried violet leaves online.

For information on identifying and foraging for fresh wild violets, I recommend this article from Grow Forage Cook Ferment.

Can I use fresh violets instead or dried violets?

Yes! Use 3 tablespoons of fresh flowers when swapping out the dried.

Can I omit the ashwagandha powder?

Yes. You can omit the ashwagandha with no change in flavor to the recipe. However, the ashwagandha really contributes the calming properties that go hand-in-hand with moon milk.

Can I omit the sweetener or use something else?

Sure! You can omit the maple syrup, use a sugar-free substitute, or replace with any liquid or granulated sweetener of your choosing.

Can I use regular dairy milk?

Yes. If you are not on a vegan or dairy-free diet, regular dairy milk (or even cream!) work beautifully as well.

  • In a saucepan over high heat, add the milk and bring to boil. Turn off the heat and stir in the violet flowers. Cover, then let steep for 15 minutes.
  • Once finished steeping, whisk in the maple syrup, ashwagandha root powder and vanilla. Strain the milk into a mug and serve right away. Optionally garnish with more dried violets. Enjoy!
