Looking for an easy remedy to destress and help you fall asleep? Moon Milk is here to save the day! While scrolling on Pinterest, my mom found a cool Moon Milk guide and of course we had to try it! I wanted to show the ingredients that I used to make my Moon Milk and share why I love it so much.

For the rest of the drink, I used Coconut Milk because it’s non-dairy and plant-based, Raw Honey because it’s sugar-free, Coconut oil because it’s a healthy fat, and ground cinnamon as my spice. There are many other options as well so feel free to change it up a bit!
