This soothing recipe blends a mixture of spices with chamomile to help you ease into a good night’s sleep after a stressful day.
Turmeric 2 tsp
Ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp
Fresh root ginger 1 1/4 cm,
peeled and grated
Ground cardamom 1/4 tsp
Ground nutmeg 1/2 tsp
Virgin coconut oil 2 tsp
Brewed chamomile tea 1/4 cup,
Almond milk 1 cup
Raw organic honey or pure maple syrup 1 tsp
In a mortar, add the turmeric, cinnamon, grated ginger, cardamom, nutmeg and coconut oil and grind with a pestle to form a paste, adding one or two teaspoons of the chamomile tea if you need to loosen it.
Heat the almond milk in a pan with the clove until warmed through, then either discard the clove or leave it in to infuse a little longer.
There is enough spice paste for two cups, so you can either share with another or save half for the next night. With half in a mug, pour over the remaining chamomile tea and the hot almond milk, warming up more in a saucepan if you need to, then drink while warm.
