After going AIP I needed to give up coffee. So I searched the internet (Pinterest) to find an alternative. This recipe for AIP Herbal Coffee Alternative is my version of what I found.

So, I decided I needed to post my recipe for AIP Herbal “Coffee” that helped me get through when I was doing strict AIP & had to give up coffee. Coffee was one of the hardest & last things I gave up to further my healing process.

Recently I read an article on the Amazing Benefits of Dandelion Root. You can read the article here

The AIP Herbal “Coffee” Alternative not only contains Dandelion Root but also has Chicory Root. This is what gives it the coffee flavor.

Chicory Root

Chicory RootChicory Root has so many health benefits too. It’s a great source of prebiotics. The inulin in chicory root nourishes the gut bacteria, improves digestion & helps relieve constipation. Chicory Root can also help increase bile production, which improves fat digestion. Additionally, Chicory Root is high in antioxidant compounds that protect the liver from oxidative damage.

Dandelion Root

It has been shown to reduce cholesterol & supports the liver. Dandelion Root has antimicrobial properties that can help stop the growth of disease-causing bacteria.

What’s funny, is that I still drink it even though I have re-introduced coffee, but I love knowing that I’m getting all the wonderful benefits of the ingredients in this recipe.

A Little History

If you are looking for a coffee alternative, here is a delicious recipe that will keep you from missing your cup of Joe! -www.thehealthnutmama.comI started drinking coffee when I was old enough to sit on my mother’s lap & sip it out of her spoon (no judgment here). Obviously, I wasn’t drinking it in my sippy cup, but I did develop a taste for coffee at a very early age.

So when I realized I had to stop drinking coffee to continue the healing process of my autoimmune disease, I came across a recipe for an AIP Herbal “Coffee” Alternative.

The recipe called for dates to sweeten it & you had to boil it on the stove, then strain it. I don’t know about you, but that just seemed a little too cumbersome for someone who “needed” coffee in the mornings & was fighting fatigue so bad I just wanted to crawl back in bed. So I decided to make my own version of it.

If you are looking for an alternative to coffee this is the best I have found and with so many health benefits.

AIP Herbal Coffee Alternative

Instructions

  1. Put Dandelion Root, Chicory Root & Carob or Cacao Powder (if using) in your coffee maker just as you would your regular coffee.
  2. Add filtered water to the coffee maker (This is the one I have. I love it because you can brew a single cup or a pot) & Turn on.
  3. When "Coffee" is brewed, serve as you would normally. If you want it more like a "Starbucks" latte add sweetener of choice, milk of choice, &/or coconut oil & blend with an Immersion Blender until frothy.

Notes

  • To add even more nutritional value, add 1-2 Tbs. of Great Lakes Gelatin Powder. I put 2 heaping Tbs. & 1 Tbs. of Coconut Oil in mine every morning.
  • Here is another healthy healing tea, try my Lemon Turmeric Ginger Tea. I have this on an empty stomach 1st thing every morning, especially during cold & flu season!

    Hello, I was wondering what size the scoop is that you used for this recipe? Have you tried this iced? I’m missing iced coffee this summer.

    Thank you!

      Hi Penny, I use a normal coffee scoop & make it the same way I used to make coffee. I put a scoop of each. I think it measures 1/8 c. I haven’t tried it iced. (not a fan) but you could definitely try it. Let me know if you do. I’m sure my readers would love to know too!
