I’ve been searching for a morning beverage that gives me that “mmmm…. coffee” feeling for literally six years since working as a barista in Seattle, and this definitely fits the bill! It can be made in a French press coffee maker, or steeped in any contraption you’d use to make loose-leaf tea. For the blending component, you can either use a regular or immersion blender — just make sure your appliance can handle hot liquid.
For those skeptical about how this recipe tastes, I promise it is quite similar to the roasted, slightly acidic flavor of coffee. Both dandelion and chicory roots have liver detoxification properties, so this drink is not only caffeine-free, but it supports those detox pathways. Win-win!
- Place the dandelion and chicory root in the bottom of a french press or other container and cover with boiling water. Let steep for 4 minutes before plunging with the press or straining.
- Place the coconut concentrate, coconut oil, and “coffee” into a blender, making sure to lid tightly and place a kitchen towel over top to protect your hand. Blend for 30 seconds on high, until creamy and frothy. Enjoy!
