With spring comes the beautiful yellow dandelions, they pop up everywhere and most people dont think much of them. I´m here to change your opinion on that. The dandelion is a super great plant that has real health benefits, especially the root of the flower.

The dandelion root is a great, to mention a few amazing uses for it; detoxifier of our digestive system, liver, gallbladder & its also a powerful antioxidant. The amazing thing is that you can just go out and pick it yourself, so its a complete free super food right outside of your door.

The best way to use the root, is to dry it, pick it into tiny small pieces and boil it. I decided to add in a few other amazing elements to my elixir, to get a kick ass super healthy daily booster.

turmeric root, ginger root, black pepper & chilli. 


A LITTLE TIP

I add the black pepper because it makes it much easier for the body to absorb the health benefits of turmeric, it increases the observation with app 2000%, which is insanely high, so no point leaving it out.  


 

STEP BY STEP

Chop the turmeric, ginger and dandelion root into small pieces, add it into the pot with water.

Crush the black peppers or use a pepper cracker.

Chop the fresh chilli, just add after your liking of spice, I like it pretty spicy so Ill add a reasonable amount.

Let it all boil and then simmer for a while, 1-2h.

Let it cool down before you strain it with a cloth, to get all the pieces out. I´m leaving it to cool all day, as I´m busy for the rest of the day.

FINAL STEP

To make sure we dont waist any part of the brew, try to blend all the little pieces with some new water in a blender, drain it again, so hopefully you can still get some final juice out of the ingredients.

Your end result will look like this
