I’m definitely in a Pumpkin State of Mind.
Fall is officially here and we’ve got all things Halloween (already!) on the brain. The kiddos have made their costume picks and are already counting down the days to trick or treating. We’ve got a few weeks to go, but in the meantime, this Halloween Hot Chocolate aka Pumpkin Spice Moon Milk (made with our favorite chocolate milk, warmed up) served up in our favorite pumpkin mugs will keep the littles looking forward to all things Halloween.
What is Moon Milk, and what are the benefits?
Moon milk is a drink made with natural, good for you ingredients that help our bodies unwind and get the rest it needs throughout the night. Originally an Ayurvedic sleep aid, modern day moon milk typically includes adaptogens – herbal compounds such as Ashwagandha and Reishi – as well as spices like Cinnamon and Tumeric. The warm cup of moon milk helps balance out our adrenal system (the part of our body that controls our hormones), reduces stress, and helps us drift off to a sound night of sleep. In turn, we have more energy the next day, and our immune systems can improve.
This Halloween Hot Chocolate, or Pumpkin Spice Moon Milk Recipe, is kid friendly (spices only, no adaptogens), tastes super yummy, and takes a few minutes to make. Scroll down to see the recipe and try it today.
