As much as it pains me to say, there are some people who can't have coffee. Oh, how sad! I start my mornings with a tasty, hot mug of coffee and then I drink tea the rest of the day.
It seems to be the trend, lately, that people are catching on to Dandelion "Coffee" . . . which is really simply a Dandelion Tea with a twist.
A couple of years ago, I posted on the MANY benefits of dandelion. What a mighty little "weed." So, if you are unfamiliar with those benefits, you really should read my earlier post.
Dandelion Coffee is so easy. To make a pre-made jar full . . .
You Will Need:
~1/4 c. dried dandelion root
~1/4 c. chicory (a.k.a. cowboy coffee)
~1 TB. mini carob chips
~small mixing bowl
~jar with lid
1) in the bowl, whisk together all ingredients to blend
2) pour ingredients into jar
~add 1-1/2 to 2 ts. of blend to a tea ball or infuser, put into a mug, pour hot water over the blend, let steep for 10 minutes. Enjoy.
This will help those of you who have had to give up coffee or who just want an occasional alternative with many health benefits, for extra measure.
