This Cherry Lavender Moon Milk recipe makes for one creamy, delicious, calming and beautiful sleepy-time beverage for those evenings when you could use a little extra support. With a healthy blend of oats, walnuts, spices, sweet cherries, and plant-based milk, this warm and cozy drink makes for one comforting vegan gluten-free night-time remedy with its roots in Ayurveda.
In a food processor or blender combine ingredients milk through salt. Let soak for at least 30 minutes.
Blend soaked ingredients until well combined and relatively smooth. Optionally, strain through a nut milk bag, or cheesecloth. (I personally like to use as is and let all settle in the bottom of my cup as I drink.)
Heat moon milk on the stove-top over medium-low heat until frothy.
Whisk in maple syrup and coconut oil.
Turn off heat.
Pour into mugs and optionally garnish with lavender, turmeric and cherries.
