How To Prepare Dandy Blend

Dandy Blend herbal coffee can be prepared in many ways. If this is your first time trying it, let’s start with the basics. All you need is hot water and Dandy Blend. Below is a “cheat sheet” on how to prepare Dandy Blend to your liking.

3 Simple Ways to Prepare Dandy Blend:

  • 1 level tsp of Dandy Blend + 8 oz hot water = a tea-like beverage
  • 1 rounded tsp of Dandy Blend + 8 oz hot water = a rich, full bodied coffee
  • 1 heaping tsp of Dandy Blend + 2 oz hot water = an espresso-like beverage

If enjoying Dandy Blend “black” isn’t your style, you can dress it up the same way you would your coffee. You can do this by creating your Dandy Blend “base”, whether it be a tea-like beverage, a black coffee, or espresso. Then, you can add your sweetener of choice, some milk, or even add your Dandy Blend base to a smoothie.

A Dandy Blend fan favorite is to enjoy theirs as an “espresso” shot in an iced cup of oat milk. It’s a delicious treat, especially on a hot summer day. We’ve also seen fans use Dandy Blend in recipes that call for coffee, such as tiramisu.

If you’re an “I can’t live without my coffee” person, no problem. Dandy Blend doesn’t have to replace your favorite cup of coffee, but can serve as a delicious alternative to your afternoon cup of joe. It can also be the tasty bridge between trying to reduce caffeine and not feeling restricted. Some Dandy fans have even added a tablespoon of real coffee to their regular cup of Dandy Blend just to have a slight boost of caffeine instead of the full punch.
