Caffeine Free Dandelion Latte

Dandelion Latte

Coffee wrecks havoc with your adrenals, and, being an irritant, it is not very gentle on the digestive system – it can cause abdominal pain and an upset tummy.

Oh but it tastes so good, right? I have a recipe today for a caffeine free alternative – Dandelion Latte, made from roast dandelion herbal ‘coffee’, nut milk and coconut oil.

I like to buy a brand of dandelion coffee called Bonvit – it’s a blend of roasted dandelion and chicory. The perks are, it doesn’t perk you up, and actually gives your liver a bit of love. It can taste a bit bitter, but if you follow this recipe, you will get a super frothy, creamy delicious latte – almost (if not better than) the real thing.
