Do you love coffee, but worry about the caffeine? Anthony’s Instant Chicory Root is a caffeine free alternative to coffee, made from the roots of the chicory plant. These roots are roasted and ground into a fine powder, perfect for an instant, coffee-like drink!
Chicory Root has a deep history dating back to the 1800’s when France used it as a coffee substitute and extender during a shortage. It was even said to be cultivated by ancient Egyptians! This flowering plant found mostly in France, hosts a woody, nutty flavor and is a traditional favorite of many New Orleans natives.
Anthony’s Instant Chicory Root is Gluten Free, Caffeine Free, and Non-GMO, with no other additives.
Directions: Place 3 teaspoons of Chicory into a cup, add 8oz of hot water or milk and stir. May be enjoyed hot or cold, as well as mixed with coffee.
This vegan sahlab tastes close to the original custardy drink that’s popular in the Middle East. Scented with rose water and flavored with mastic, it’s the perfect warm drink for a chilly day.
