Dandy Blend is made of only four ingredients: roasted barley extracts, roasted rye extracts, roasted dandelion root extracts, and roasted chicory root extracts. You may have noticed that your bag of Dandy Blend doesn’t have roasted sugar beet root extracts as an ingredient anymore. It’s because we’re weeding it out of our recipe, which means you might still receive a bag that has it…or not! Why you might be asking? The high-quality beet root that we use is no longer available and we’re committed to only serving you the best. It’s still the same bold flavor you know and love, whether you receive a bag with this past or current recipe. Happy sipping!
Dandy Blend’s founder Dr. Peter Gail learned about different coffee alternatives in the 90s but knew he could make one better. He combined his love for edible plants and dandelion root to make it more therapeutic and flavorful, and, in 1994 Dandy Blend was born as a hit caffeine-free herbal beverage.
There are many ways to enjoy Dandy Blend! The powder is soluble in any type of liquid at any temperature. The best way to try Dandy Blend for the first time is by itself with hot water.
Directions for mixing Dandy Blend with hot water:
- 1 level tsp per 8 oz water = tea like beverage
- 1 rounded tsp per 8 oz water = rich, full bodied coffee
- 1 heaping tsp to 1 tablespoon for an espresso strength beverage
After the first sip, if you’re not in love with it try adding more Dandy Blend, a little at a time, till it’s to your desired taste.
Once you’ve tried it “black,” you can now try it other ways!
You can prepare it however you would make your coffee usually by adding agave, milk or even adding it to a smoothie. A fan favorite is mixing Dandy Blend in oat milk and adding ice for a cool break on a hot summer day or really any day of the year!
Some fans have even used Dandy Blend to make a “coffee” ice cream or replaced the espresso in the tiramisu they’re baking.
If you’re an “I can’t live without my coffee” kind of person, we totally understand. Think of Dandy Blend as your afternoon break from caffeine. We promise your body will thank you.
Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the benefits of dandelions in an instant!
