It is no secret, I love coffee. It’s not about the caffeine. I don’t need it to wake up. I love a warm, comforting drink on cold winter mornings. But, as much as I love herbs, I am not a fan of herbal tea. I will drink it for medicinal purposes but can’t bring myself just to drink it for fun. (That is true confession for you!)
I have tried a tried quite a few coffee substitutes in my day, but none of them have been worth the money to me. I’d rather stick to the real deal.
However, when my friend Jessica from Delicious Obsessions started her own line of herbal ‘coffee’ blends that are made to support the liver, I couldn’t pass up wanting to try them.
I have been taking steps to gently nourish my body this winter and part of that is taking care of my liver. I don’t want to do a heavy detox but I just want to support the liver’s natural functions.
The Cleaning Living herbal ‘coffee’ blend contains organic chicory, dandelion and roasted carob.
The Happy Liver Herbal ‘coffee’ blend contains organic chicory, dandelion, milk thistle, burdock and roasted carob.
Both blends are full of herbs that will naturally aid your liver and digestive tract. The Clean Living blend being a bit lighter, the Happy Liver blend has a fuller, deeper flavor with the extra herbs. They have a nice undertone of a ‘chocolate’ flavor.
These herbal coffee blends are also great for anyone actively losing weight because it helps flush the excess hormones that were stored in the fat leaving your body.
It is fun to have an afternoon drink that is both yummy and soothing to my liver. (Plus, my adrenals really don’t like it when I have coffee in the afternoon.)
With added cinnamon and sea salt, this recipe will also be a help support your adrenals.
- 2 tsps. of the clean living herbal coffee
- 2 cups of water
- ⅛ tsp. stevia.
- pinch of sea salt
- ½ tsp. cinnamon
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp coconut oil
- ⅛ cup of coconut milk
- Bring water to a boil and steep herbs for 10 minutes.
- Strain and add the rest of the ingredients, mix well.
I enjoyed playing with the coffee blends to make a wonderfully yummy drink that is healthy and on the Trim Healthy Mama plan. This drink is a solid S with the (affiliate links) coconut oil and coconut milk.
If you are not dairy free, you can also sub the coconut oil for butter and the coconut milk for half and half or cream.
Jessica is an advocate for healthy, clean living and has made a great product for those of looking to give our livers a little gentle push. I love being able to support small business owners that carry quality herbal products.
Do you enjoy herbal coffee? What’s your favorite way to make it?
(While I was given samples of the herbal coffee blends, I was not compensated for this post, nor do I make any money from any of the sales. The opinions are my own, expressed to share a great product with all of you!)
