Spiced Milks (1)

Warm milk before bed to promote a good night’s sleep is a routine that goes back many years and is one that most of us experience as a baby and young child. Cow’s milk contains three sources of sleep promoting compounds - tryptophan, Vitamin D and calcium - that can contribute towards sleepiness and a better night’s sleep. The psychological association of warm milk and sleep can also make it easier to nod off. These three spiced milk recipes are the perfect evening drink to help you unwind before bed.

Ingredients:

Golden Spice:

250 ml milk of your choice

1 tsp turmeric

¼ tsp cinnamon + extra to sprinkle

Vanilla Spice:

250 ml milk of your choice

½ tsp vanilla extract

¼ tsp cinnamon + extra to sprinkle

Autumn Spice:

250 ml milk of your choice

1 tsp maple syrup

½ tsp cinnamon + extra to sprinkle

¼ tsp nutmeg

Recipe:

1. If you have a milk frother, simply mix the milk and spices together and froth in a milk frother.

2. If you don’t have a milk frother, mix the milk and spices together in a microwave jar and microwave for 30 seconds. Then screw on the lid and shake the mixture, remove the lid and microwave for another 30 seconds - 1 minute for hot, frothy milk!

3. Pour into a mug and garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon!
