And this mocha latte comes with some seriously great benefits. Made from French chicory, the roasted root is blended with dandelion and heralds as “the detox herb”. Also added in the tea is Spanish carob, which has a hint of chocolaty goodness, and almonds, dates and figs that give this tea it’s amazing flavor. One has to wonder is it coffee or tea… It’s a great coffee substitute especially when Cleansing with Food. Often students have a challenge giving up their coffee for 21 days, however this smoothie really is a surprise alternative! Serve it warm, room temp or iced. Any which way you serve it, you will be surprised by it’s taste!
There are multiple bonuses from this deliciously robust latte, besides it being unbelievably sugar free! While Pegs has been paying attention to her sugar intake, even living her whole food lifestyle, she realized, the coconut water and dates added into her morning smoothie were adding up to a lot of sugar. Using teas and unsweetened vanilla non-dairy milk alternatives eliminated a lot of her extra sugar, and allowed Pegs to add a date if she wanted to sweeten her smoothie just a bit. The added bonus with dandelion tea is that it’s naturally acid free + helps to restore one’s alkaline balance. Check out why dandelion root is so amazingly great for our bodies.
