AIP Recipe: Carob “Coffee”

Carob Coffee

I love coffee.  I mean love coffee. Love, love, love.  As Woody Allen said in Annie Hall, I lurve it.

 But, I stopped drinking it months ago in order to reset and balance my hormones.  I only had one cup each morning, but I found it was enough to keep my body stressed out for much of the day.

 Quitting it was really hard.  I felt sick for about a week and a half.  It was during that time that I realized just how dependent on coffee I was and even though at the time I thought I would never feel normal again, I did.  Sweet relief!

 Besides replacing my coffee with green and herbal teas, I often make a delicious beverage with carob, dandelion and chicory.  It’s rich and smooth and is a nice alternative to coffee.

 Awesome!

 Maybe you will try this delicious carob beverage that I have enjoyed since quitting coffee:

 Carob “Coffee”:

 1 tsp. carob power

1 tsp. dried dandelion root

3/4 tsp. chicory root

 Steep all ingredients in 8 ounces of hot water for 3 minutes and enjoy!
