Lavender Moon Milk for Sleep


Get help drifting off into a peaceful sleep with lavender moon milk. This drink is made to help combat stress, anxiety and calm the mind before sleep.


  • 1 ½ cups of milk (dairy or unsweetened non-dairy)
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract 
  • ¼ teaspoon of cardamom 
  • ¼ teaspoon of turmeric 
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 teaspoons of dried lavender (culinary grade)


  1. Add all ingredients to a small sauce pan and whisk to combine. Heat the moon milk over low/medium heat to bring to a very gentle simmer. Simmer for 5-7 minutes being sure to stir frequently so the milk does not scorch to the bottom of the pan.
  2. Strain thru a fine mesh sieve to remove the lavender and then place the heated moon milk in a blender on high for a few seconds to make frothy. If you have a frother you could also use that.  


  • If you happen to have ashwaganda, you could add ¼ teaspoon to this to increase the adaptogenic effect.
