Book review: Moon Milk

  1. Ever heard of moon milk? It is a warm, non-alcoholic nightcap made up of vegetable milk, herbs and spices. Moon milk expert Gina Fontana has bundled fifty recipes for the hot drinks in her new cookbook, which bears the name of the nightcaps.

Relaxing Herbs and Spices

  1. In Moon Milk you will find fifty recipes for colorful, warm drinks that you can prepare with vegetable milk. You drink them before you go to sleep. The herbs and spices in the warm nightcap are said to have a healing and relaxing effect and can promote sleep. Where you used to take a glass of warm milk with anise before going to sleep, you can now do so with a mug filled with steaming moon milk.

Easy recipes and fun facts

  1. The recipes in the book are easy to make. What you need for any recipe is a saucepan, vegetable milk, the herbs and spices, and some maple syrup for flavor. Each recipe contains a fact about the ingredients. For example, did you know that cardamom is used to solve various intestinal problems, high cholesterol and problems with heart vessels? Or that the combination of cardamom, turmeric, cinnamon and ginger not only helps you fall asleep, but also fights off nasty flu? So there is something to learn with every recipe.

Difficult ingredients

  1. The book contains quite a few ingredients that not everyone will have in his or her kitchen cupboard, such as blue matcha, activated carbon, ashwagandha and lavender paste, but Fontana has something for that. . At the back of the book you will find a handy overview with addresses where the less common ingredients can be found. But also with some cinnamon, turmeric and ginger there are plenty of recipes to make from Moon Milk.

Does it work?

  1. Of course I tested a number of recipes from the book before going to sleep and I have to say: such a warm drink before going to sleep feels pretty good in your stomach. And then falling asleep works well. The maple syrup makes the moon milk a bit sweet, so instead of a whole tablespoon divided into two servings, I now use half. Of the three drinks I have tried, namely the hazelnut, pitaya rose and the cinnamon milk, the cinnamon milk is my favorite. Can't wait to try the other recipes too. Sleep tight!
