Comforting Cashew and Ashwagandha Night Tonic


Prep Notes

This is a great tonic to unwind with at the end of the day.

Ingredients

1 cup cashews, soaked overnight

approximately 2 cups filtered water

1 teaspoon maple syrup

½ teaspoon vanilla bean, ground

1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon  

¼ teaspoon nutmeg, grated

½ teaspoon ashwagandha powder 

pinch of sea salt

Directions

Make homemade cashew milk by adding soaked cashews to a blender with enough filtered water to fill 1 inch above cashews. Blend until smooth. (You will use 8 ounces of the milk in your recipe and any extra will keep for a few days in an airtight jar or bottle in your refrigerator.) Add cashew milk, maple syrup, vanilla bean, cinnamon, nutmeg, ashwagandha, and sea salt to a small pot. Heat on high, removing before it comes to a boil. Stir using a spoon, whisk, or milk frother to be sure everything is combined. Relax and sip away once cool enough to drink.
