I've been drinking this warming potion on new and full moons as a special grounding ritual to help me refresh and recenter around highly energetic times. It's warm, caramely and made with just a few ingredients that you may already have in your pantry. No adaptogens necessary! The beauty of this recipe lies in the ritual of it and the comfort that the spices bring.
Moon milk is based on the Ayurvedic ideal of drinking warm milk to aid a good night's sleep. If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can find out how to make your own here. It’s a delicious blend of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg and cloves. For this recipe, I used almond milk to create a nourishing vegan alternative, but feel free to sub with whatever nondairy milk you want. Some good alternatives include:
Hemp seed milk
I hope that you join me in making this moon milk recipe for this Wednesday's full super moon + sink into the comfort of this ritual. It falls on the same night as the spring equinox, which is the start of the astrological year and the beginning of a new cycle. The combo of the super moon + equinox enhances the opportunity for new potential, but in order to do that, we need to shed what's holding us back. And in order to do THAT, we need to ground ourselves. Happy dranking and reflecting!
