Thinking about doing a cleanse but scared to give up coffee? Let me introduce you to your new best friend: Dandy Blend. I just completed a 3 week cleanse, and I may not have made it through without the help of this genius herbal “coffee substitute.” A caffeine- and gluten-free blend of dandelion, beet root, and chicory, Dandy Blend is not only healthy, it has that satisfying “bite” and texture we coffee lovers all crave. I enjoyed it hot in the mornings, iced in the afternoons, and even blended with ice, almond milk, cacao and a dollop of agave when I wanted something dessert-like. It doesn’t hurt that I also have a personal affinity for the name, as our family cat was named Dandy (short for Dandelion) and he lived a robust 18 years.
