I’ve been drinking this soul soothing Pink Moon Milk for the last few weeks. I love that this recipe falls into the category of “I’m-delicious-but-also-medicinal”, and is very easy to make.

It’s made with homemade nut milk, honey, and Montmorency tart cherry juice, one of the few natural sources of melatonin, which is responsible for the regulation of the body’s internal clock and sleep-wake cycle. I also added a little ashwagandha, considered an adaptogen, a substance that enhances the body’s adaptive response to stress and balances normal body functions. I love its light sweetness, and the way cherries work with almonds (a classic flavor combination). The dried rose petals certainly add beauty, but the fragrance that drifts to your nose with each sip is quite relaxing as well.

Rest well. Dream big. Sleep tight.

 6 oz almond milk (preferably homemade)
 4 oz unsweetened Montmorency tart cherry juice
 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
 ½ tsp ashwagandha powder
 dried culinary rose petals
1

Heat almond milk and tart cherry juice over low heat in a small pot. Remove from heat, and whisk in honey and ashwagandha. (If you want to make it really frothy, you can add it to a blender). Top with rose petals and drink warm.
