Pink moon milk: The most Instagrammable sleep aid we’ve ever seen.
For the Millennial generation, is there a duo more iconic than chronic insomnia and a compulsive need to have everything be Instagram-ready? We think not.
You know what they say about Millennials — they’re lazy, entitled, obsessed with social media clout, over-medicated, and chronically sleepless. So, when I first stumbled upon a curious little nightcap called pink moon milk, I had to chuckle.
Is there anything more iconic than an Instagrammable pink drink that purportedly helps you sleep? Okay yeah, there’s plenty of icons out there, but I just wanted to use that line.
According to people who seriously believe in pink moon milk, the drink is a “functional food” that affects the way you, well, function. The secret lies in tart cherry juice, one of the few foods that naturally contain melatonin. And if you’ve been chronically unable to sleep, you probably know that melatonin is a sleep hormone often sold in pill form as a sleep aid.
Some recipes for pink moon milk also call for ashwagandha powder, an adaptogen that supposedly balances the body, whatever that means. One thing to note before making the pink drink: stick to non-dairy milk as cow’s milk is harder to digest right before bed.
Even if pink moon milk doesn’t work like it claims to, we have a feeling we’ll be chugging it just by virtue of its appearance. Talk about superficiality, huh? .
