This is the best coffee substitute we've found. We drink it with hot milk, melted coconut oil and coconut milk. (It's so delicious that we've turned it into our after-lunch ritual.) It was created by Dr. Peter Gail, who has devoted his life's work to the study of healing herbs--particularly the dandelion. Ingredients: totally soluble extracts of roasted barley, rye, chicory root, dandelion root and beet root Dairy-free and Gluten-free*. *Dandy Blend is made of the water-soluble extracts of five ingredients; three roots and two grains (barley and rye), not from the ingredients themselves. The ingredients are roasted, covered with hot water, and allowed to steep. The water, with the soluble portions of all the components, is separated from the grounds. The remaining fine brown powder left is what becomes Dandy Blend. All the gluten and other water-insoluble substances are left behind.
