Happy November! October seriously flew by! We had some beautiful weather during the month of October but the last several days have been so rainy and grumpy and blah. I miss the sun! I’ve been drinking more tea than usual just to keep me warm and happy while I wait for our sun to return. Sipping on a cup of warm yumminess and having a quiet moment with myself is a highlight of my day. Normally, I enjoy tea or my nourishing hot chocolate (thank you for all the love on that recipe!)but lately I’ve added a new recipe in the mix and it is ah-mazing! So, I’m obviously sharing it here with you!
Roasted Dandelion Tea is one of my favourite teas-it is strong and comforting like coffee but it is caffeine free and so healthy and detoxifying. You can read about all the amazing benefits of the almighty dandelion here. Some of the amazing benefits of dandelion tea are: helps to detoxify the liver, aids in digestion and weight loss, helps improve circulation, high in calcium and magnesium, eases bloating and constipation plus much more!
I love drinking roasted dandelion tea straight with a little raw honey but it is fun to turn it into something special every now and then. Just like the hot chocolate recipe this one also contains some of my favourite healing ingredients!
Coconut milk for healthy fats that help stabilise blood sugar, aid in weight loss and digestion….
Collagen peptides for healthy joints, immune system and digestive system, and beautiful skin, hair and nails….
Raw Honey for digestive aid and anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties…
Cinnamon for antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties….
Coconut oil for digestion, anti-inflammatory, energy……
So, you should definitely make this recipe for your taste buds, your liver and your gut. And, if you are a coffee drinker looking for a healthier alternative once in a while, this recipe would be great for you.
