Life is too short for bad coffee, but is your coffee creamer negatively impacting your health? Normal coffee creamer is made up of various concoctions of oil, sugar and thickeners, and many don’t have real cream in them, according to Food Network. Jazz up your morning cup of joe with these healthy alternatives.
If you want to make your daily cup healthier without making a drastic change, almond milk may be your solution. Easily picked up at your local grocery store, almond milk creamers are perfect for restricted diets or anyone looking to improve their coffee.
Hot tea is often sweetened with honey as an alternative to refined sugar, and coffee can be too! Going natural is the easiest way to make your coffee healthier, and honey is probably already in your cupboard. If not, visit your local farmers market to find all-natural honey.
Spice up your day and your coffee by adding cinnamon or other spices to your hot coffee each morning. Cinnamon can curb the bitter taste of coffee, and it has anti-inflammatory properties, according to a study done by the US National Library of Medicine. Using spices reduces the calories in your coffee and lowers your risk of disease.
If you’re brave and all for the newest trend, putting butter in your coffee might be for you. Using butter is supposed to make your coffee taste similar to a latte, without the extra sugar and calories. It’s recommended to using grass-fed, unsalted butter, according to David Asprey, the creator of Bulletproof Coffee and man behind this trend.
