Restore balance in your gut with this gut-healing and soothing cardamom rose moon milk. Perfect for any time of the day or in the evening.
In the past few years, the focus on gut health exploded. Rightfully so, as it seems many of us are struggling with our digestion, feel frustrated, and can’t quite figure out what to do about it. I am with you in my frustration. And while I’ve tried a lot of food combinations, and cut out gluten and dairy, gut issues still creep up. Anyone with IBS can probably relate to this.
However, I was remarkably surprised when I tried something a little different. And trust me, as a supplement junkie, I was definitely skeptical – I thought I’d tried it all. But when Naked Nutrition reached out about partnering, I was definitely excited as they’re certainly not only an established, but respected brand. The product that immediately caught my attention was Naked Gut. The name itself is quite catchy, and truthfully anything with the word gut in it has my attention.
But let’s dive a little into this product and my experience with it.
To be perfectly transparent, I mentioned to Naked Nutrition that I’d like a little time to try the product before giving it an honest review along with a recipe, but I didn’t need as much as I’d anticipated because I saw improvement in the first 2 days. I don’t jump to conclusions lightly, especially when it comes to gut-related things, so this was a very pleasant surprise.
About Naked Gut
Being the nerd that I am, I wanted to break down the ingredients in Naked Gut and see what I was working with. Their ingredients are clearly listed and what the overarching focus seems to be on is good, easily adaptable fiber, prebiotics, and a custom probiotic blend as well. And no, this is not your typical fiber supplement or probiotic. This is remarkably different as it focuses on allowing the gut to “maximize nutrient absorption, minimize digestive discomfort, and support a healthy gut microbiome for better immunity and overall health”. It also includes glutamine, which is essential for improving the gut lining, minimizing inflammation, and mostly improving proper nutrient absorption. Because as the Ayurvedic saying goes, “it’s better to have a poor diet and good digestion than a good diet and bad digestion.”
And don’t take my word for it, let your gut decide and your morning poo. (You. Are. Welcome).
What Does It Taste Like?
Naked Gut easily mixes in water. I find it to be rather neutral if water is your choice beverage. It also works in juices, smoothies, and my personal favorite – moon milk – more on that in a bit.
How Much And How Often Should You Take It?
Naked Gut comes in powder form along with a little measuring scoop. I’m sensitive when it comes to pretty much any new supplement so I started off conservatively with 1/2 a scoop and still saw improvement right away, and gradually increased to the recommended full scoop. Since many of the plants involved are rich in fiber, I wanted to ease into it, but you may find your gut does perfectly well with the full scoop. Experiment with what works best for you.
As far as frequency, I find taking it once a day, every day to be the best way to optimize your gut health. That’s also what is recommended.
So now let’s move on to a little recipe I’ve created to help you make the most out of this supplement by adding it to a wonderfully calming Gut Healthy Rose Moon Milk.
Recipe At A Glance

Let’s Make It
Step 1. If you want to make this recipe a little fancy, take 1/4 cup almond milk and froth it. Of course, you don’t have to do that but I like to add a little something extra from time to time.
Step 2. Heat almond milk over medium heat until it’s as warm as you’d like it. Add the remaining ingredients and either give them a good whisk in the pan or add the mixture to a blender and blend for 10 seconds.
Step 3. Serve right away with frothy milk or on its own.
Top Tips And FAQs
How Can You Get Frothy Consistency Without a Frother?
My trick for getting my moon milk to have froth is to add 1 tsp of coconut oil. The coconut oil when blended turns very frothy creating a nice layer on top. So that’s always an option if you don’t want to use a milk frother or don’t have one on hand.
Do You Need Cardamom?
If you don’t have cardamom handy, no worries, you can skip this entirely though I find it adds a nice flavor.
How About Ashwagandha?
Again, completely up to you if you don’t have this particular ingredient but I try to incorporate it into most of my moon milk recipes.
Is There A Low-Carb Version?
To make this moon milk low-carb, you can simply use keto-friendly maple syrup or you can skip the sweetness entirely.
