The ULTIMATE Self-Care Bedtime Drink

The other night I fancied some kind of hot drink. I wanted it to be warming, tasty and help me sleep. So, after playing around with different herbs, powders and other concoctions, I came up with this.

Now, I'm not 100% sure which part of it knocks me out, in fact it might be a combination of everything. I did feel super sleepy afterwards and I swear it helped me get my Zzz's. Plus, it is DELICIOUS!

So here is my recipe for my 'Self-Care' Bedtime drink...


WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Cup of Coconut Milk Drink - I measure this into my cup first and then pour into my saucepan (I love the Rude Health Organic Coconut Drink)

  • 1 tbsp Dried Rose Petals

  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Milk Powder

  • Good grating of Nutmeg

  • Good Pinch of Ground Turmeric

  • Good Pinch of Cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp Ashwaghanda Powder

  • 1 tsp Coconut Sugar (or any other natural sweetener you prefer)

METHOD:

  • Add all the ingredients to a small sauce pan

  • Warm the milk mixture but do not boil

  • After stirring for a few mins on the hob, drain through a sieve or tea strainer and serve

I think when you decide to make yourself a drink like this, it's not just something that you whip up and neck quickly. This is to be enjoyed in a 'moment'. So, put your feet up, get your 'hygge' on and grab a good book.


Sit back and enjoy!
