Drink This Delicious Turmeric-Coconut Bedtime Drink For Sleep & Digestion
This secret mixture can ease your digestive system and help you get to sleep faster, and you’ve probably used it before. It’s a turmeric-coconut combination, and it’s amazing!
If you do any type of cooking, then you have indeed heard of the spice, turmeric. It’s mostly used as the main spice in curry, but what you might not know is that the root of turmeric is used to make medicine.
According to WebMD, Turmeric is used to treat:
- Stomach pain
- Diarrhea, intestinal gas
- Liver problems
- And a slew of other conditions
The effects are so great that in some cultures turmeric is a beverage that is typically drunk before bed.
If you’re looking for a way to get a good night’s rest while helping out your insides, then the recipes below are for you.
Here is how to make your own tasty turmeric-coconut beverage:
- 2 cups coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon turmeric — where to find
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (the absorption of turmeric is actually enhanced when combined with black pepper)
- 1″ piece of ginger sliced
- raw honey to sweeten, if desired.
- In a saucepan add all ingredients (except honey, if using) and whisk to combine
- Heat over medium heat until it starts to bubble
- Then turn heat down to low and simmer for about 5 minutes so the flavors meld
- Strain out the ginger
- Add honey and stir
- Makes 2 servings, so you can share the love
Here’s how I keep it on hand for ease of use:
- 3 Tbsp turmeric
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 1 Tbsp powdered ginger
- Cover the jar and shake to mix
- To use: Mix 1 teaspoon of the powdered mix with 1 cup of coconut milk

Trendy Cashew Milk Costs $11 A Bottle&mdashOur Copycat Recipe Is Healthier And Only 70 Cents
One of the perks of being a nutrition editor is getting to try the latest snacks and drinks. So a while back, Blueprint&mdashthe company that really spearheaded the juice cleanse madness with those trendy bottles prominently listing their ingredients down the front&mdashsent me a sample cleanse.
Now, this was an all-liquid cleanse that packed around 700 calories for an entire day, so needless to say, I failed miserably and realized that I really love chewing. (In fact, here are 5 reasons you should never go on a juice cleanse or detox.) I did, however, become obsessed with their subtly sweet, deliciously creamy cashew milk made with water, cashews, vanilla, cinnamon, and agave. It was the nearly perfect on-the-go light meal (or hearty snack), containing healthy fats and some protein.
The problem: When I finally spotted a bottle at my local grocery store a few weeks ago, my initial excitement quickly faded when I saw the price: ELEVEN freakin' dollars! For nuts, water, and a little sweet and spice? That's insanity, folks. I also noticed that the sugar content was higher than I remembered&mdash21 g.
So I got creative. Below is my lower sugar, more economical version that's just as tasty. Each 8 oz cup clocks in at 70 cents worth of ingredients and just 7 g of sugar. With each cup, you're getting a hefty dose of magnesium, a mineral that helps with protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, and blood-sugar control.
Vanilla-Cinnamon Cashew Milk
Makes About 5 cups
1 c cashews
2 Tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract, or vanilla bean paste
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1. SOAK cashews in jar overnight (or for at least 6 hours) in fridge.
2. DRAIN and rinse cashews, then add to blender with maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and 2 cups cold water. Blend until smooth and creamy, about 1 to 2 minutes, depending on your blender. Add 2 cups more water and blend 30 seconds more.
3. POUR into glass and drink, or store cashew milk in jar with lid up to 1 week in fridge. You can add it to iced coffee or blend it into smoothies. One of our favorite combos: 1 cup iced coffee, ½ cup cashew milk, and 1 frozen banana all blended to creamy perfection.

Mexican hot chocolate
Spicy and nice: thejameskitchen's Mexican dark hot chocolate drink. Photograph: thejameskitchen/GuardianWitness
Try this steaming, orangey hot chocolate with a dollop of lightly whipped cream and some grated Mexican chocolate (Mayordomo or Ibarra for example). Or if you have none of these handy, just mix dark chocolate with piloncillo (unrefined cane sugar) or dark brown sugar and cinnamon. For a bit of spice, you can even add chilli. And then stir it all up with a cinnamon stick.

7 Bedtime Drinks to Help You Sleep Like a Baby
Chamomile is the original Sleepy Time Tea. People have been using chamomile as an herbal sleep remedy for centuries, and about one million cups of chamomile tea are brewed every day. The calming, sedating effects of chamomile are well-known, despite the lack of controlled studies.
Chamomile also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, making it good for all-around health ( 1 ).
So go ahead and brew a cuppa&rsquo chamomile. Make sure to steep for at least 4 minutes to get the full benefits of the herb.
Cherries are naturally high in melatonin, the hormone that triggers sleep and regulates your internal clock. Look for tart cherries since they have especially high amounts of melatonin. Some small, double-blind studies suggest drinking tart cherry juice before bed leads to longer, better quality sleep ( 2 ).
Valerian Root Tea
Valerian root tea is another one of those drinks that make you sleepy that people have been using for centuries. The taste and smell are rather potent on their own (kind of fishy), so it&rsquos best to mix valerian root with another herb like chamomile or licorice root. Or look for pre-packaged tea containing valerian root.
Warm milk is a classic bedtime drink. Mom was right &ndash it turns out drinking a glass of milk before bed really can help you relax. Milk contains an amino acid called tryptophan that tells your brain to release serotonin (which turns into melatonin and makes you sleepy). It&rsquos also high in calcium which can help reduce stress.
Lactose intolerant? Is dairy a migraine trigger? Or you just don&rsquot like milk? Try a glass of almond* milk instead. Almonds have high amounts of melatonin, calcium, and magnesium. Magnesium is a mineral crucial for rest and relaxation.
Make a banana* smoothie for dessert and you&rsquore all set for a great night&rsquos sleep. Bananas are loaded with tryptophan, magnesium, and potassium (which helps prevent muscle spasms). For the ultimate bedtime drink, blend a banana with almond milk and a heaping spoonful of peanut butter* (which adds even more tryptophan). Try our favorite Migraine-Relieving shake for more good vitamins and minerals.
Hot water or tea with Honey
While this isn&rsquot a beverage, honey can be added to most of the bedtime drinks above to maximize their calming effects. The natural sugars in honey cause your insulin levels to rise just enough to encourage tryptophan to enter your brain more easily. Pretty sweet, huh?
Note: Bananas and nuts may trigger migraines in some people. Avoid if these are among your triggers.
4 thoughts on &ldquo Cashew Milk Lattes + More Nut & Seed Bread &rdquo
Hi there! Love the recipe. Where did you happen to get the mug pictured? It’s beautiful!
Hi! Do you have an issue with cashew milk separating after heating? Mine gets clumpy and weird when I microwaved it!
Hey! Does the cashew milk work without the maple syrup as well? Just looking for milk replacement in my coffee but not into too sweet stuff (for example, I don’t like sweetened almond milk that much)
Dairy-Free Night Time Smoothie & my 7 Rituals to a Good Night Sleep
Are you experiencing trouble falling asleep? If so this Dairy-Free Night Time Smoothie & my 7 Rituals to a Good Night Sleep will help you feel more relax and prepared for the restful night your soul, mind, and body deserve.
Dairy-Free Night Time Smoothie
I have experienced trouble falling asleep over the past month and a half. Despite feeling very tired, my mind remains fully awake and starts spinning with a hundred thoughts making it impossible for my body to relax.
Stress and anxiety can have a huge impact on the amount and quality of sleep we get. Like a vicious circle, they prevent us from falling or staying asleep, while a lack of sleep is likely to make us even more stressed and anxious. This can lead to us being unable to fully focus on whatever is on our to-do list the next day, making us feel even more stressed.
We go through phases and I like to believe that they are there to teach us something and as a reminder that self-care should be our number 1 priority!
Below, you will find the smoothie recipe I like to have in the evening and my rituals to prepare for a good night sleep.
Dairy-Free Night Time Smoothie & my 7 Rituals to a Good Night Sleep.
The first step to getting a good night sleep is to prepare for it, my 7 rituals to a Good Night Sleep help me unwind before going to bed:
I like to light up a stick of lavender essential oil when coming back from work. The calming scent soothes my mind and body. Place your stick onto a holder (in a safe place, away from anything flammable), light up the end and blow it up. It will perfume the entire house and will help you feel calm.
I like to have a bath (2 or 3 times a week) with some Epsom sea salt in it. Epsom sea salt breaks down into minerals and allows you to get rid of any negative energies, it is said to improve insomnia and alleviate muscle pain as a result helping your body to relax.
After my bath, I like to do 5 to 15 minutes of light yoga exercises. Do it from the comfort of your house with my favourite yoga instructor Yoga With Adrienne, the good thing is that you don’t need to know anything about yoga to be able to benefit from it!
3. Strawberry and almond milk smoothie
Rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, this delicious smoothie is a great option for fighting nighttime hot flashes and other symptoms that can result from hormonal imbalances.
Its properties help maintain optimal energy levels and, with time, can also reduce anxiety and insomnia.
- Wash the strawberries well and blend them with the glass of almond milk
- Make sure that the liquid is well mixed and drink right after making
- Drink two to three hours before bed
