Ending the day with a tonic is a great evening ritual. While the
routine alone creates a calm setting, you can choose to add ingredients
to your tonic based on how you feel and how your day and week have been.
This tonic has not only adrenal-hugging ashwagandha, but nutmeg which
can support sleep and relaxed muscles, and comfort your agitated mind.
1 cup cashews, soaked overnight
Approximately 2 cups filtered water
1 teaspoon maple syrup
½ teaspoon vanilla bean, ground
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
¼ teaspoon nutmeg, grated
½ teaspoon ashwagandha powder
Pinch of sea salt
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
