As I get older I realize more and more that often that the smallest acts in life can often bring about the greatest pleasure. This is precisely how I feel about all these moon milk and latte drinks that bring me so much joy.
So I decided to compile them into this list of 10 delicious and calming anti-inflammatory drink recipes. These drinks are packed with beneficial herbs and spices, and are great to have any time of the day, but I find them to be particularly useful when you need a mental break. Anti-inflammatory spices and herbs help to calm and soothe the nervous system and are wrapped into a delicious and calming drink.
These are particularly useful if you're sensitive to caffeine and are looking to replace your morning drink with something a little special. And if you do want some caffeine the matcha and moringa latte contains caffeine as well as the lavender London fog latte, but that can easily be made caffeine-free if you choose.
What you'll find on this list are all plant-based milk drinks such as healthy lattes and moon milk recipes.
What Makes Moon Milk, Moon Milk?
If you ever wondered what moon milk is, it typically means heated milk with spices and herbs. Moon milk comes from Ayurveda, also known as golden milk which is a turmeric-based milk with other spices such as ginger and cinnamon. And the reason it's called moon milk is that it's best to drink it at night for a good night's sleep.
What's The Difference Between Moon Milk And Latte?
Traditionally lattes contain caffeine but the majority of the lattes on this list do not. And frankly, I often use the terms moon milk and latte interchangeably, but if it contains any sort of caffeine, it goes into the latter category.
So now that you know the difference between moon milk and lattes, let's get to this list of delicious cold-weather drinks.
How Do You Make Moon Milk?
The moon milk formula is pretty easy to follow. All you need is:
- The milk of your choice
- Spices and herbs (cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, etc), fat (such as coconut oil), and optionally honey or maple syrup for sweetening your moon milk
- Heat everything together and blend for extra froth.
So now, without further delay, here are these 10 Cozy Anti-Inflammatory Moon Milk And Latte Recipes.
