Summer is here and dandelions are everywhere, but did you know that dandelions are not just for making wishes and rubbing pollen on your friends? There are actually quite a few useful things you can do with them!
My favorite idea for using dandelions comes from Let them Eat Healthy, a great blog with all kinds of cool recipes and tips.
Vanilla, Lavender, and Wild Dandelion Syrup
It looks and sounds just delicious so be sure to head on over there and check it out!!
According to Earth Friendly Goodies, Dandelion has quite a few health benefits!
Just one cup of dandelion greens contains 2.1 g of protein, 112% of the daily recommendation of vitamin A, 32% vitamin C, and a whopping 535% vitamin K. A cup of dandelion leaves also contain 218 mg of potassium, 103 mg of calcium, and 1.7 mg of iron.
They also have a great recipe for Dandelion Coffee.
