Teeccino is a wonderful coffee substitute that gives me an energy boost when I occasionally get the “afternoon slump.” It also hits the spot after dinner when I want dessert.
This “coffee” is actually derived from dandelion root, carob and chicory and is non acidic. You can mix in ground coffee with Teecino if you do want some caffeine to make a wonderful “half-caf” drink anytime of day.
I make Teccino in my French Press. I add 2 tablespoons to 3 cups of hot boiling water. I steep it for 5 minutes prior to pressing down on the French Press. Afterwards pour into a mug for a delicious drink.
If you would like to enjoy this drink sugar-free, I recommend adding 6 drops of vanilla stevia per cup. If you would like it more sweet, you can replace the stevia with 1-2 teaspoons of coconut sugar. Another great addition is adding in a little bit of warm almond milk.
Stir and enjoy!
