MEET THE MYLKMAN
Nut milks don’t just make a healthy alternative to dairy milk, they are also stacked full of stuff that can help you get a good night’s sleep.
Almond milk in particular is a good choice to sip before bed. It contains both tryptophan, an amino acid that acts as a sedative, and also magnesium, which acts as a muscle relaxant – making it perfect to help you get sleepy.
Two sleepy nut milk recipes to try
- Whizz up your favourite nut milk in a blender with a ripe banana (add a drizzle of honey if you fancy) for a Bedtime Nut Milk Banana Smoothie.
- For colder nights, make yourself a small bowl of Nut Milk Porridge, with or without berries on top - for another late night snack that's sleep approved.
