There is nothing more satisfying than enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning and watching it warm your body. A cup of warm coffee that fills your stomach and your spirit and creates a feeling of being energetic, full of energy, and ready to tackle the day. However, what if you could have a cup of coffee, but it was healthy and not filled with sugar?
To begin with, we need to differentiate between regular coffee and the healthiest type. Regular coffee is, in fact, the best cup of coffee but it can also be very high in sugar. This means that you could be drinking coffee that is filled with more calories than some soda.
What I like to do is create coffee beverages that are healthy and are much better for me than any great drink that I’ve had in the past. Creating a cup of water, and adding a couple of tablespoons of honey to it. When drinking a cup of coffee, I drink about four ounces of water and two tablespoons of honey.
Now, when I say cold brew, that’s when you add the hot water to the already brewed coffee, and you let it cool down. If you add the honey then you will taste the difference. It will taste richer and sweeter, but it will also taste cleaner, with no added sugars. Cold-brew makes my coffee not only healthier, but it makes it taste even better.
I use different types of recipes for different types of coffee. Some of the most popular ones are:
Grapefruit — When you make this at home, you can play around with the sugar to get a great option. You can also add a little lemon to it to give it a kick. You can add vanilla extract or almond extract and this gives it an additional twist.
Green Tea- For those who are caffeine addicts, this will be right up their alley. Green tea is a favorite for the green leafy tea person. Adding cinnamon to the green tea creates a scrumptious addition.
Café Blend — The café blend is one of the healthier types of coffee because it does not contain milk or cream. Most of the time you can find café blend in organic stores, and they are more expensive than regular brand coffee. But, they are still one of the tastiest and lowest in sugar.
Acid Blend — Add a small amount of acid to your cup of coffee and it tastes even better. These are a bit pricier than other types of coffee, but they are worth the money because you don’t have to worry about the high sugar in regular coffee.
Fresh Cream — If you want to try a more rich variety of coffee that is more expensive than the others, you can add a little fresh cream to it. This will give it a nice balance, and the cream adds a sweet, smooth flavor. This is the most popular option and one of the cheapest, but not the best option.
Enjoying a cup of coffee is a simple process that gives you the health benefits you’re looking for in a delicious cup of coffee. All you need to do is buy the freshest beans available.
