Moon Milk is a soothing night-time drink I make when I’m having trouble sleeping. It takes minutes to make and I always serve it with a cookie.


  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon organic ashwagandha root powder (optional)
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • Scant pinch of ground cardamom
  • 12 teaspoons of pure maple syrup, or to taste. You can add more if you want it to be sweeter.


Warm the milk. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, warm the milk.

Add the spices. Add the ashwagandha, cinnamon, and cardamom. Whisk into the milk and heat for another 1 minutes.

Add the maple syrup. Whisk the milk vigorously to create a froth on top. (You can also use a frother if you have one.)

Pour into a mug and serve. Sprinkle a tiny amount of cinnamon on top if desired.
