Kick the Caffeine: Discover a Roasty, Rich, and Caffeine-Free Organic Coffee Alternative Recipe!

Creating a tasty and healthy organic coffee alternative without using coffee beans involves selecting alternative ingredients that provide a rich flavor profile and potential health benefits. Here's a recipe for a caffeine-free, organic coffee alternative:


1. Roasted Chicory Root:

  • 2 tablespoons of roasted chicory root

  • Chicory root adds a dark, robust flavor similar to coffee and supports digestive health.

2. Dandelion Root:

  • 1 tablespoon of roasted dandelion root

  • Dandelion root provides a nutty flavor and offers potential liver detoxification benefits.

3. Cinnamon:

  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

  • Cinnamon adds warmth and depth to the flavor, and boosts immune system.

4. Carob Powder:

  • 1 tablespoon of carob powder

  • Carob has a naturally sweet taste, adds a chocolate-like flavor and reduces oxidative stress.

5. Optional: Nutmeg, Cacao or Cardamom:

  • A pinch of nutmeg, cacao or cardamom for additional spice or flavor.

6. Optional Sweeteners:

  • 1-2 teaspoons of honey, maple syrup, or a natural sweetener of your choice.

7. Optional Milk and Alternatives:

  • 1/4 cup of organic raw goat's milk, almond milk, coconut milk, or another plant-based milk.


  1. Blend Ingredients:

  • Combine the roasted chicory root, roasted dandelion root, cinnamon, carob powder, and optional spices in a blender or coffee grinder.

  1. Boil Water:

  • Boil 2 cups of water.

  1. Brew the Coffee Alternative:

  • Place the blended mixture into a French press or a tea infuser and pour the hot water over it.

  • Let it steep for about 5-10 minutes, depending on your desired strength.

  1. Strain and Serve:

  • Strain the mixture to remove the solids.

  • Add optional sweeteners and milk alternative according to your preference.

  1. Enjoy:

  • Sip and savor your homemade organic coffee alternative!


  • Experiment with ingredient ratios to find the flavor profile that suits your taste.

  • Feel free to add other herbs or spices like ginger, cloves, or vanilla for additional complexity.

  • Adjust sweeteners, dairy and milk alternatives based on your dietary preferences.

This coffee alternative won't taste exactly like traditional coffee, but it offers a satisfying and flavorful substitute with potential health benefits.


If you're looking for an alternative to chicory root in your coffee alternative recipe, you can consider using roasted dandelion root as a substitute. Roasted dandelion root provides a similar dark and robust flavor, making it a suitable replacement for chicory in coffee alternatives.

Alternatively, if you're open to exploring different flavors, you might experiment with other roasted roots like burdock or eleuthero root, both of which can contribute unique tastes to your coffee alternative. Keep in mind that the flavor profile may vary, so adjust quantities based on your taste preferences.

Remember to consider any potential health benefits or effects of the substitute you choose, and enjoy the process of creating a coffee alternative that suits your palate.
