This gluten-free & vegan Double Blue Peppermint Moon Milk makes for one soothing & delicious antioxidant-rich brew perfect for those stressful days and sleepless nights . . .
Some of you may have caught on to my love of colorful beverages by now . . .
This Double Blue Peppermint Moon Milk is no exception! This delicious and vibrant brew was wholly inspired by my first voyage into Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Powder land (thank you, Suncore Foods!). Holy moly is this stuff amazing . . .
Just look at that beautiful color! And the best part? Blue Butterfly Pea Flowers (Clitoria ternatea) are packed with antioxidants, stress-relieving properties, and anti-inflammatory effects. What's not to love?
Throw in some cooling and calming peppermint, magnesium-rich (sleep promoting!) sunflower seeds, and vitamin c and antioxidant-rich blueberries and you have yourself one doubly blue brew that is:
Packed with healthy nutrient dense ingredients
Soothing, calming, relaxing
Creamy and satisfying
And gluten-free & vegan!
I truly hope you enjoy my take on this nighttime beverage with its roots in Ayurveda; and give the amazing Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Powder a spin yourself!
