As the sun sets and the moon takes center stage, it's time to unwind, relax and prepare your mind and body for a peaceful night's rest. But how about adding a little twist to your night-time ritual? Let us introduce you to our Dreamy Nitey Nite Coconut-Cinnamon Latte, a delicious and sleep-enhancing nightcap that's not just good, but good for you!
How This Latte Works To Help You Drift Into Dreamland
Sleep is an indispensable part of our well-being, but often, life's stressors can make getting good sleep quite difficult. That's why this Dreamy Coconut-Cinnamon Latte is crafted with our Nitey Nite blend – a powerful blend that brings together the powerful effects of five incredible herbs to ensure you enjoy restful and rejuvenating sleep:
Passionflower: Imagine a switch that turns off racing thoughts. That's what passionflower does for you. It brings calm and quiet to an overactive mind, perfect for when you're winding down.
Chamomile: Chamomile is calming to the mind and body, letting the day's stress melt away and setting the stage for a peaceful night's sleep.
Valerian: This potent herb acts as nature's own sedative. Unlike synthetic sleep aids, valerian encourages your body's natural sleep processes, helping you wake up non-groggy, energized and refreshed.
California Poppy: This vibrant herb is a secret weapon against restlessness. It promotes a relaxed nervous system, turning your inner chaos into tranquility.
Spearmint: Not just for fresh breath, spearmint relaxes your mind and body, and soothes your stomach. This is a triple threat for better sleep!
Each of these herbs contributes to making this power-packed blend not just tasty, but also super effective. The addition of coconut milk to this recipe provides healthy fats to stabilize your blood sugar through the night, while cinnamon adds a sweet spice and helps in further relaxation.
The Ingredients You Need For Your Sleepy Time Latte
- 2 teaspoons Nitey Nite
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup of coconut milk
- 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp cardamom
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-2 teaspoons maple syrup (optional)
- Additional cinnamon for garnish
Directions: How To Craft Your Sleep Latte
- Start by brewing the Nitey Nite: steep 2 teaspoons in 1 cup of hot water. Let it steep for about 10 minutes to fully extract the beneficial properties of the herbs.
- While your tea is steeping, gently warm the coconut milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Be careful to not let it boil.
- As the coconut milk warms, add in the ground cinnamon and cardamom, stirring well to ensure they are fully incorporated.
- Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. If you prefer a sweeter latte, now is the time to add in your maple syrup. Start with one teaspoon, taste, and add more if desired.
- Pour your brewed and strained Nitey Nite tea into a large mug. Slowly pour your spiced coconut milk into the mug with the tea, stirring gently to blend.
- Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top, and enjoy!
Sip it slowly before bed, and let the soothing flavors lull you into a peaceful state of relaxation. Sleep well knowing that you're nourishing your body and taking that much needed time for self-care. Sweet dreams!
