Dreamy Date Moon Milk

Odds And Ends

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.  


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


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

For a latte-like finish, use a handheld frother or small whisk to create a fine froth. Pour into a warm mug and top with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon, if desired.
