Get to Know the Recipe Creator

Ned: What’s your name, occupation and instagram handle? 

Kelly: My name is Kelly Scott. I’m a personal chef and content creator. You can follow me at @kellyscleankitchen

Ned: What inspired you to start creating mocktails? 

Kelly: I almost never drink, but still like having a fun and flavorful drink in hand when being social or at home with a nice dinner. I love that they are much healthier and don't have the negative effects that alcohol can have. 

Ned: What does holistic health mean to you? 

Kelly: Holistic health means looking at my health from all angles to try to be the healthiest and best version of myself that I can be. This often means looking at things from a more natural point of view to pin point to root cause of the issue rather than addressing only the symptom with standard western medicine. 

Ned: What do you love about Shuteye Chai

Kelly: I love the high quality ingredients first and foremost. Secondly, I love the great flavor. It has the perfect combination of warming spices to be a great night cap. 

Ned: What's your nightly Shuteye Chai ritual? 

Kelly: I like to make a shuteye warm latte around 1 hour before bed and blend it with my favorite dairy free milk. 

Ned: How does Shuteye Chai support your sleep?

Kelly: I have seen that it definitely helps calm my nervous system and makes me more relaxed and ready for bed. 

Ned: What do you do with the sediment at the bottom of the mug? 

Kelly: I typically mix it up with a spoon for a last flavorful sip!

Ned: What's your favorite sleep tip? 

Kelly: I avoid electronics and screen time for two hours before bed, wear blue blocker glasses once the sun sets, drink Shuteye Chai and also take Ned's Sleep Blend before bed. I also always read before bed instead of scrolling on my phone.
