Creamy Roasted Dandelion Detox Latte Recipe (Dairy Free Option)


There’s nothing quite like a creamy, delicious latte, right?

Unless you’re trying to avoid coffee. And dairy. Then it can be tricky.

Never fear! I have a delicious recipe for you!

This is a soothing, comfort drink that is actually GOOD FOR YOU! Enter the Dandelion Latte.

Dandelion when roasted makes a remarkable coffee substitute that is good for your liver and supports detox efforts. It’s also a better option than coffee if you are recovering from adrenal fatigue.

The coconut oil also is excellent for your liver and your system in general. It provides quick energy without the caffeine, helps with fat loss, boosts your immune system, helps your brain work better, and a whole lot more. It makes the drink creamy and gives it that “mouth-feel” that you would get from cream in your coffee.

The ghee is another healthy fat that is fabulous for your digestion and your intestinal flora. Ghee contains a substance that helps the good bacteria to thrive. It is also very beneficial in soothing leaky guts.

I know, I know. It might sound weird, but just give it a try. I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised with this recipe!

With this delicious detox drink you won't even miss coffee!

    I just bought a drink like this at the health food store on my way to the ocean and they called it “brain booster” . The coffee substitute was no the roasted dandelion, but with the ghee and coconut oil it reminded me of your delicious nutrition recipe. I liked the sound of boosting my brain! This has been a morning delight, iced afternoon treat and equally an evening treat.

      That sounds great, Kim! I’m glad you discovered you can use any tea/coffee for this technique and it turns out delicious. You’ll have to try chai tea in the fall 🙂
