Liver-Loving Antioxidant Dandelion Mocha Latte
Real Food Recipes Recipes
There’s just something about a deliciously decadent coffeeshop creation…
It’s probably all of the sugar!
But if you’re wanting to treat yourself while also treating your body well, this Liver-Loving Antioxidant Dandelion Mocha Latte is where it’s at. It tastes like a fancy-in-the-pantsy coffeeshop creation while being filled with healthy ingredients. Yes, quite the trickster.
I’ve actually been making this yummy drink almost daily for probably over a year now. Gasp! I know I know, what took me so long to share it with you!? Well in my defense I have shared it on Instagram a few times. But it’s one of those things that I just sort of threw together one day and didn’t think much of it. But it’s about time I finally write the recipe down here on the blog so you can share in the goodness with me.
As its super duper long name suggests, this Liver-Loving Antioxidant Dandelion Mocha Latte…
- Is made with liver-loving dandelion root
- Is packed with antioxidants from chocolate (hence the mocha)
- Is creamy like a latte
- Tastes like a fancy coffee

BUT it doesn’t contain any coffee. Nope. The flavor actually comes from the herbal dandelion blend. (I will say though, that the cacao does lend a little caffeine kick.)
Liver-Loving Antioxidant Dandelion Mocha Latte:
- 8 oz almost-boiling hot water
- 2 tsp Dandy Blend herbal coffee alternative
- 1 tsp raw cacao
- 1 heaping tbs full-fat canned coconut milk
- 4 drops liquid stevia extract
- 1 tbs collagen peptides (optional — for protein and a healthy-skin boost)
Heat water until it’s almost boiling.
Add all ingredients to a mug.
Stir, sip, and enjoy!
Wow that’s crazy!! Glad you were able to find an alternative 🙂
And thank you so much! That really makes me so happy to hear!!
I just got my Dandelion coffee alternative and made this drink this morning. I’m in the UK and the only one I found of your blend was £48!!!
I bought a different one but it’s so yummy! Thank you for sharing.
Keep all the good work that you do. I love it! x
Hey, Anna! It’s generally not recommended to do any sort of “detox” while breastfeeding, though I don’t think the Dandy Blend is really going to mobilize any toxins – it’s not nearly as concentrated as a dandelion root supplement or even straight dandelion root tea. Plus, dandelion works by stimulating bile flow (which is how the liver releases toxins) – so just helping the liver do something it does naturally anyways. I would think it’s perfectly fine but it’s up to your discretion.
Sounds soo delicious! Do you know if it is safe to drink while breastfeeding?
Is the dandy blend organic? Otherwise, I know conventional herbs hit us like ‘a cup of pesticides,’ my mother always said 😉 Please let me know. Thank you, Nadia! Your recipes never fail to delight me. I’m sure this is amazing.
I am so disappointed that the coffee alternative that you use doesn’t ship where I live. I was really looking forward to try this! I might need to do more research…
