Dandelion Latte Recipe

Dandelion roots have a rich, coffee- and chocolate-like flavour without sending you on a caffeine-fuelled rollercoaster. Instead, you get a sustained shot of balanced energy and a rich source of antioxidants. Making your own at home is highly satisfying!


  • 5 tsp dried roasted dandelion root
  • 2 cups water & 2 cups nut or oat milk
  • optional additions – 1 cinnamon stick and/ or 1/2 teaspoon of dried ginger, 1 tsp fresh ginger or 1 tsp vanilla extract to taste, sweetener to taste (honey)
  • can also be enjoyed black with a small wedge of lemon


  • place a medium pot over medium heat and place the dried dandelion root in the bottom
  • toast the root until it becomes fragrant and golden brown, then add the water and additional flavorings (if using)
  • bring water to a boil, then reduce heat and allow it to simmer for 30-45 minutes adding the milk a few minutes before serving
  • strain and add sweetner
