Are you looking to cut back on coffee but still want something fun to drink in the morning? Then this is the ultimate blog post for you. Here are 7 AMAZING healthy coffee alternatives.
First, Why Change Your Coffee Routine?
Coffee is great if you truly enjoy it, but sometimes things can simply become a habit.
People have different views of coffee, and I don’t have an issue with it.
But, you might want to branch out and try something new!
Cold Tea Over Ice With a Splash Of Heavy Cream
This one is amazing and tastes so good! Take your favorite tea like English Breakfast or Earl Grey and then add a splash of heavy cream and stevia to taste. This is so good!
- 1 1/2 Cup Cold Earl Grey Tea
- 2 tbs Heavy Cream
- Stevia to taste
- Plenty of ice!
Iced Hibiscus Tea With Stevia
This is great if you want something that tastes a little fruitier and lighter.
- 1 1/2 cup cold hibiscus tea
- stevia to taste
- plenty of ice
This is a lot heavier than your normal coffee, but it can be one of the great healthy coffee alternatives if you are looking for something more filling.
You can do this smoothie in so many different ways, also including protein powders like Truvoni Chocolate Protein Powder.
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/4 cup ice
- 2 tbs cocoa
- 2 tbs gelled chia seeds
- 1 scoop protein powder (optional)
Orange Juice With Sparkling Water (In A Champagne Flute)
Mornings should be a fun event, and every day should be filled with happiness. One drink I LOVE is orange juice with sparkling water. It tastes like such a wonderful treat, and it makes me truly happy.
One extra step you can take is to have this drink in a beautiful glass, like a champagne flute. It makes it feel more elevated and whimsical!
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup sparkling water
Sparkling Cranberry Juice
Much like the drink above, sparking cranberry juice is one of the best drinks out there. I love unsweetened, organic cranberry juice. It is incredibly tarte, so you will need to try it out and see what the right amount is for you.
- 2 cups sparkling water
- Cranberry juice to taste
Hot Water With Lemon And Honey
If you need/want something warm in the morning to help wake you up, hot water with lemon and honey are one of the best healthy coffee alternatives. It’s warming, delicious, and nourishing to your mind, body, and soul (I think).
- 1 cup hot water
- 2 tbs fresh lemon
- 1 swirl of honey
Chai tea is thicker and heavier than hot water with lemon, so it may satiate you more.
My personal favorite on this list: hot chocolates!
Hot chocolates are truly one of the best drinks in the world. They are creamy, wonderful, and delicious. There are so many different ways to make them, including melting down chocolate bars and adding them to milk, as they do in Paris, but the recipe listed below is much more simple.
It’s a “healthier” version of hot chocolate.
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tbsp cocoa
- Stevia to taste
- organic marshmallows (optional)
This is so unbelievably refreshing! This drink will perk up your senses, and make your kitchen smell amazing with all of the different fruits!
- 1 tbsp lemon
- 1 tbsp lime
- 2 tbsp grapefruit
- 1 1/2 cup sparkling water
I hope you enjoyed this post on healthy coffee alternatives!
