Enjoy the old standby nighttime drink promoting restful slumber. Milk contains a protein alpha-lactalbumin, rich in tryptophan, that tells the brain to sleep. Plus you wake up feeling rested the next morning, without the side effects that often come with sleep-inducing drugs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add honey to milk and warm in the microwave.
  2. Remove and stir in vanilla.
  3. Enjoy and then slumber off to bed!

Good milk and honey. I always wonder if this has something to do with you mind and drinking warm milk as a baby.

I love hot milk and honey... add in vanilla and I'm in heaven... I used organic 2% milk, raw honey and my homemade vanilla extract... Tastes so good and I slept so well... LOL Must be the alcohol in the vanilla extract!!! Can't wait until it's cooler so I can curl up with a mug of this yummy drink in front of our fireplace!!!

I have been drinking this for years (thanks to Grandma!), as a way of getting to sleep when my mind is racing. I typically do not add vanilla, but it has a nice taste when added!
