Dreamy Date Moon Milk

What happens when creamy dairy milk meets pure date syrup? A moon milk recipe for happily ever after, especially with cardamom and cinnamon to add some spice.  

Makes 1 serving


1 cup real milk
2 teaspoons pure date syrup (or to taste)
2 dashes cinnamon + extra for garnish, if desired
1 dash cardamom


  1. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk together milk, date syrup, cinnamon and cardamom until milk is warm but not yet simmering.

  2. For a latte-like finish, use a handheld frother or small whisk to create a fine froth.

  3. Pour into a warm mug and top with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon, if desired.
