A savvy businesswoman and owner of a chain of coffee & waffle houses in NYC during the early 1900s, Alice Foote MacDougall (Carolines great grandmother), has been an inspiration for the Teeccino brand. While thinking of a recipe to make during May (AKA Mothers Day Month) we immediately thought of Alice and her inspiring story. She was famous for her waffles which launched a chain of high-end restaurants in New York City. We slightly modified Alices recipe by substituting half of the milk with a freshly brewed batch of Teeccino Dandelion Coconut (our flavor of the month). We think Alice would have enjoyed our creativity! We hope you enjoy our rendition of Alices recipe as much as we do!

Teeccino Dandelion Coconut Herbal Coffee

We made this recipe with Dandelion Coconut Herbal Coffee featuring detoxifying dandelion root, but you can use any Teeccino blend! Nutty shredded coconut adds warmth to deep roasted dandelion and chicory roots highlighted with slight sweetness from dates and figs. All of Teeccino dandelion blends are certified gluten free.
