Here are the two ways to make this peaceful sleep milk.  This also builds Ojas the nectar that is you.

Peaceful Sleep Spiced Milk from Denise O’Dunn  Balance & Bliss Ayurveda

Organic milk, soy milk, rice milk or almond dream –  to make 1 cup   Ghee (clarified butter)  1 spoonful   Maple syrup   to taste

Use a “pinch” to a “shake or two” of each spice —- to taste

Turmeric                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Cinnamon                                                                                                                                                                                                           Nutmeg                                                                                                                                                                                                        Ground Cardamom

Warm ghee till melted add milk or liquid of choice add all spices and when warm (not hot), pour into your favorite cup….. follow your breath as you sip slowly…….. enjoy the sweet aroma and imagine yourself drifting into a deep and peaceful sleep.    Good night

Another version from Larissa Carlson  also Ayurveda Lifestyle Coach

This can be used 3 times a week as it is very rich

Soak 3 dates and 8 almonds in water to just cover these items overnight. So this can be done in the Am if you know you want to drink this in the evening.  Pour off water and the skins of the almonds will slide off you can also remove the date skins if you like ( I eat the dates with the skins)

1 cup of milk of choice see above  add in these spices a pinch to a few shakes

ground ginger powder, ground cardamon, turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg.  Warm this but not hot.  Can leave out spices you don’t care for or just use a very small amount.

You can have this in the am or evening (evening helps with sleep) or as a 3-4 pm snack.  Some people like to puree the almonds and dates or you can cut up the dates before heating or you can use your spoon to eat them.  Ayurveda eating encourages eating like a queen for breakfast and a King for lunch and a pauper for dinner so this could replace the evening meal.
