Sleepy Ashwagandha Milk (Recipe / Video)

Ashwagandha is a beautiful Ayurvedic herb, the latest addition to our global apothecary. It certainly has an unusual taste, that may be challenging to some of our Western palates (which are used to overtly sweet foods and drinks). But we've got you covered with this delicious and calming recipe.

 

Ashwagandha, the King of the Herbs in India, is a wonderful herb for both males and females to rejuvenate the sexual functioning and modulate cholesterol levels. While this adaptogen has a rejuvenating effect, it actually is known as a stress modulator, really nourishing the nervous system.

 

This gorgeous bed time elixir pairs SuperFeast Ashwagandha with SuperFeast Reishi and has the makings for a wonderful nighttime ritual. The magical nervine effects of the aromatic botanical herbs with the adaptogenic effects of the ashwagandha and reishi lead to some delicious sleepy vibes.

 

Let's get started:

 

Ingredients

1/4 tsp SuperFeast Ashwagandha

1/4 tsp SuperFeast Reishi

1tsp chamomile

1tsp lavender 

1 cup warm coconut milk (or your choice of plant milk)

Dollop of honey (or other sweetener, maple would be nice too)

 

Method

Heat your plant milk up, then pour over your tea.

Brew your tea and let it steep for a few minutes. 

Add your ashwagandha and reishi to your blender while your tea is steeping. 

Pour your tea/milk combo into the blender and blend.

Pour and enjoy a delicious tonic while you wind down for bed.
