Instructions

  • HOW TO MAKE THE CARROT JUICE
  • In a high-speed blender blast together the water with the carrots until you create a liquid mixture that is well blended.

  • HOW TO MAKE THE MOON MILK
  • Together in a high-speed blender add the carrot juice, cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, milk of choice, collagen powder, coconut butter, turmeric, and blast on high till well blended.
  • Pour into a microwaveable mug, add the maple syrup and stir. Heat moon milk in the microwave for 1 ½ minutes. Remove and stir again. *Note that the mixture will look totally different than before it went into the microwave. This is normal. That's the maple syrup. You can serve it now or...
  • MOON MILK FROTH OPTION
  • FROTH OPTION: Stir again and add back to blender and blast on high for the foamy bubbles and froth. Once blasted for about 30 seconds, pour into a mug, and add your favorite CBD tincture dose and enjoy.

Notes

  • If you don't want to make pure carrot juice, you can buy it.  Just make sure it doesn't have any added sugar.
  • If you are Vegan omit the collagen powder or use a vanilla plant-based protein powder of choice or plant collagen if workable, or add an additional teaspoon of coconut butter.
  • This can easily serve two people, or if you want it all to yourself it also serves 1.
