How to Make Dandelion Root Coffee

Dandelion Root CoffeeI don’t really like coffee, unless it’s slathered in chocolate. I am a HUGE chocolate fan. You could say I am a chocoholic (If there is such a thing.) I wasn’t so sure I would like Dandelion Root Coffee, but I thought I would give it a try. Not bad. It has a nutty aroma and flavor.

Hey! I like Reese Cups, so after I decided I liked Dandelion Root Coffee, I decided to try it with, you guessed it…chocolate.  I made Chocolate Dandelion Root Coffee (see below).

Dandelion Root Coffee

Dandelion RootDandelion Root Coffee is my favorite beverage from the dandelion plant. Here is how I made it.

Dandelion Roots Ready to DehydrateGather dandelion roots (I use a Dandelion Digger or Hand Weeder to help dig the roots.), scrub off dirt and debris, and spread out to dry. Chop roots into small pieces and dehydrate for one hour at 135 degrees F.

*Use only dandelions that have not been sprayed with chemicals, such as herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers.

Dandelion Roots Ready to RoastPulse in food processor until coarsely chopped. Spread on cookie sheet and roast in 250 degree F oven for 1 hour, allow to cool.

Dandelion Roots in Coffee GrinderGrind dandelion roots in coffee grinder. I use a hand-crank one my grandpa-in-law made for me, but you can use a more modern coffee/spice grinder, if you like.

Dandelion Roots Tea BallPlace 1-2 teaspoons of ground dandelion roots in a tea ball, place in a tea cup, and add one cup of boiling water.

Brewed Dandelion Root CoffeeAllow to steep for 5 to 10 minutes, sweeten and enjoy.

Hebrews 12:15 See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled;

Chocolate Dandelion Root Coffee

Because of the dandelion roots nutty aroma and taste, I thought it would go perfectly with chocolate. I decided to blend this bitter drink with one tablespoon cocoa powder, three teaspoons of coconut sugar, a pinch of salt, and a little coconut milk as creamer. It was delicious! You can make it to your taste.  Maybe next time, I’ll add some mint.
