Dandelion Root Latte
This is set to be the new latte trend: dandelion root latte. Dandelion roots have a rich, coffee- and chocolate-like flavour without sending you on a caffeine-fuelled rollercoaster of highs and lows. Instead, you get a sustained shot of energy and a rich source of antioxidants. Dandelion root is particularly good for liver health, helping your body rid itself of toxins without depleting it of nutrients and minerals it needs.

Recipe Notes

TIP: if you’ve got dandelions growing in your garden, you can dig up the roots, scrub them clean, gently peel, chop into 1-2cm pieces and roast in a 200C/Gas 6 oven until nutty brown, 20-30 minutes. Cool and grind to a powder in a coffee grinder, just as you’d grind coffee but finer.
