Trending right now is this delicious Pink Pitaya Moon Milk! Used as an ancient tradition in Ayurveda natural healing practices to help you sleep, my recipe uses pink pitaya and other spices to ignite those senses, help you sleep, and boost your immune system! Make with plant milk so that anyone can enjoy this Instagrammable potent warm drink!
Well I don’t know about you, but this cold, nasty weather is really starting to make me go crazy. I’m longing to sit outside, go for walks, do summery things and it seems she is nowhere to be found! I don’t know why this winter has seemed to drag on more than others. So… I’m trying to make the best of it, and this moon milk certainly helps!
What the heck is moon milk? That’s what I asked myself when I started seeing it everywhere! It seems like I’m never up on the current trend, and almost always missing out!
Besides being absolutely gorgeous, moon milk is an ancient tradition in Ayurveda, natural healing practices, to help with sleeplessness. Ever hear of drinking warm milk before bed to help you sleep? It stems from this ancient remedy, but people are giving this ancient moon milk a hip new twist by adding colorful superfoods and fragrant spices. So not only are we helping the occasional sleeplessness, but we’re amping it up with natural spices to help boost our immune system. In other words- it rocks.
So I wanted in. I wanted to see what all this moon milk hype was about. So I made some! And like I always say, everything is better pink, so I decided to add pink pitaya (dragon fruit) powder and dried rose petals to mine, along with some cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom. Let’s just say I’m totally on the moon milk train.
This was also my first time making my own almond milk! I’ve been wanting to try it for a while now, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do so. You guys, it’s delicious! If you haven’t tried it, you totally need to, like yesterday. It’s pretty simple actually- I think you’d be surprised! I wish it made sense for me to make all my almond milk at home, but we just drink way too much of it, so this will be a nice treat for things like moon milk (which I think will keep creeping in on my weekly menu), maybe some overnight oats and just as a treat! I am sure I will be coming up with more recipes to use it in because it’s simply delicious! Anyway, I am just over the moon about this recipe, so let’s just get to it, shall we?

**NOTE: If making your own almond milk, you will need to purchase a nut milk bag. I bought mine from Ellie's Best (www.elliesbest.com). USE CODE littlevittles for 10% of your order!
