It's The Buzzzzzz, Man: Iced Blended Herbal Coffee

Hold onto your britches and boots my caffeine cowboys & cowgirls... i have something very special for you today!  It's's don't need a won't make you crazy...and it's pretty darn rockin'.  Those of you looking to kick your caffeine habit (or at least cut it back) will be pleased to find out this not only makes a great replacement for your coffee drink, but actually helps support caffeine withdrawal symptoms.  Could life get any better than this? (perhaps having my feet rubbed and toes painted by Brad Pitt while i savor a piece of dark flourless chocolate cake might make my life a little better right now, but let's keep my fantasies out of this.  This dandy blend business definitely runs a close second.)  It's the Buzzzzzzzz, Man.

So whatchu gonna do with your dandy blend?  I'll tell you what i do with mine....

I boil some water....
i put a few spoonfuls of dandy in a cup....
i add the hot water, some coconut water (for sweetness), and either a little creamer or almond milk (creamer tastes better, but belly likes almond)..
and i sip it in place of coffee.

I also.....ohohohohoh this is so good....
I also make a yummy ice blended drink.  Move over Coffee Bean and all your sugary crap:

3/4 cup almond milk
3/4 cup coconut water (i use ONE brand)
2 ice cubes
2 HEAPING tbsps dandy blend

blend and serve.

OOOOOOOOHHHHHHH yeah.   you are not going to miss your regular coffee.

Oh, and remember it's herbal (dandelion root, chicory root, and beetroot).  Dandelion is a great diuretic and helps support your liver and kidneys.  So what does that mean for you?  It means that just like regular coffee, it makes your body's engines "choo choo" so if you like your coffee as part of your 'morning routine' then everything should still run as scheduled.....know what i'm saying?
