If you have ever heard me crying over on Instagram about how much I love coffee but how much I can’t have it without my hormones going WILDY MAD (thanks PCOS symptoms… eye rolls for days), then basically you understand how much I miss coffee. Oh my beloved coffee. It’s one of my favorite things, so I have it on rare occasion and it’s always worth is because it’s freaking COFFEE.
However, for those who can’t or choose not to have coffee, I feel you! And I’ve got your back friend. I have been making and drinking this delicious chicory dandelion root concoction for about a year and half. Basically since I learned I needed to give up the beloved coffee that I was drinking as quickly as Lorelai Gilmore. But making this into a PSL so that I didn’t feel left out and get major autumn FOMO was probably the greatest act of self love I have ever shown myself. And because I love you guys so much, of course I needed to share it with you!
I hope you guys love this coffee-free PSL, and if you do love it please share it! Be sure to tag me @naturallychelsblog on Instagram and use #naturallychelsrecipe so I can see! I love seeing your creations of my recipes and appreciate your support so very much!
Chicory Root PSL
An incredible delicious, coffee-free alternative to the traditional beloved autumn beverage. Warm, comforting spices fill this drink and make it oh-so-satisfying!
- 1 Tbsp chicory root powder
- 1 Tbsp dandelion root powder
- 2 c hot water
- 3 Tbsp pumpkin puree
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 3 tsp maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice
- 1 c steamed nut milk
Heat 2 cups of filtered water to a low boil.
Remove from heat and mix dandelion and chicory root into the water.
Steep for ten minutes.
Strain with cheese cloth, or a coffee filter into a blender.
Add in everything but the steamed milk alternative.
Blend until smooth, only about 30 seconds.
Pour into mugs, about 3/4 the way full and top off with steamed milk. I like to whisk this together!
Top with extra cinnamon if you want!
