For a quick pick-me-up, sip this pleasantly sweet coffee inspired taste of detox tea. I have used this for years as a morning treat before getting my day started and it's still my go to on a cold winter day.
“Roasted dandelion root contains probiotics, which can help feed good bacteria in the gut for regularity and immune boosting,” Blatner told HuffPost. “It also has antioxidants and may stimulate circulation to help reduce inflammation.”
In the summer I drink it over ice and I even take it in my water bottle to work with me to have something refreshing and still having that deep almost nutty flavor to enjoy during my first part of the day.
This may look like a weed to you but let me tell you a little about this beautiful plant that you didn't know about and that you could be benefiting from daily. Not just does it help with viral infections and even cancer it also balances blood sugar levels and fights bacterial infections just to name a few things. What is this weed you ask me?
This is a dandelion weed and one of the main ingredients in my love tea. Some people will pull them out of their lawn and eat them which is something I loved to do when I lived in the country but now that I am in the city and they spray everything with pest control I can't. So I buy a dandelion powder made to make my special tea.
I love to make my own almond milk and am excited to show you how to do that as well be on the look out for that recipe. Almond milk is one of the best milks you can drink. Higher in calcium than cows milk and full of iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and Vitamin E just to name a few. I bought a frother that I love and I will leave a link here for you to find the one I use. It froths all my different kinds of milks like almond milk, coconut milk, cashew milk.
I also love to use Coconut Milk Creamers for that extra special touch but this isn't optional
