Could roasted dandelion root tea actually mimic the flavor of coffee? With the addition of antioxidant-packed cacao nibs, yes! This caffeine-free latte not only helps detoxify your body, but also help you kick your Starbucks habit.

Yield: 2 servings
Active Time: 5 minutes

2 tablespoons cacao nibs, ground
2 bags dandelion tea
3/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup water
