While the temperatures are lowering, the world is unfortunately burning. I’m here to bring you a small cup of calm in these trying times. The idea of a moon milk is meant to bring a calm, grounding energy. To provide a space where you can come back to the center and get in touch with what you are feeling. I can’t wait to share with you this Berry Rose Moon Milk.
If you’ve been following for a while, the Moon Milk is the recipe that I built my blog off of. A Moon Milk nourishes & soothes you. Moon milks also help you to come home to yourself. It’s a creative expression that is indeed a meditation in itself. This Berry Rose Moon Milk is silky smooth, grounding, with vibrant berry flavor notes combined with soothing Rose.
Moon Milk Magic Tips
Although there aren’t any “rules” for how to make a Moon Milk here are a few recommendations…
- Keep your Moon Milk caffeine-free. The whole point of making a Moon Milk is to calm yourself, not boost your energy.
- Don’t overthink it! Use the ingredients that you have on hand in your own kitchen.
- I always recommend a few staples to start with for the base recipe: Cardamom, Cinnamon, & Vanilla Bean.
How To Make the perfect Berry Rose Moon Milk:
- Start by making a batch of tea, my personal favorite is a berry or flower-based tea. See below for the recipe I used for this post.
- Add any milk that you prefer. My favorites are almond and coconut milk. Sometimes even mix those together for a lighter, silky texture.
- Add your spices.
- Add your sweetener of choice. I personally love using stevia.
Make it a ritual
In a world where there is so much chaos, a global pandemic, in-justice, and confusion, don’t forget to ground, and come home to yourself. It’s not always an option to sit down and meditate depending on what our lives demand from us. Yet you can steep yourself some tea, add some milk, turn on some soothing music, and pour yourself a Moon Milk. It’s like a moving mediation that you can do at any time of day.
I’d love to see how you make your moon milk and hear about your own rituals. Definitely reach out and tag me on Instagram (@mytinylagunakitchen)!
