Do the sugar swap
Say goodbye to refined sugars by substituting them with healthier options such as honey and cinnamon. Cinnamon helps boost metabolism and will give your daily brew a bit of a kick, while a teaspoon of manuka honey adds a layer of richness to coffee with milk. With that said, only stir in honey once your cup has cooled down a little.
Use whole milk
Unless you’re lactose intolerant, using whole milk instead of low-fat milk helps to keep you feeling full for a longer period of time.
Or go dairy-free
But of course, another way to make your coffee healthier is to ditch dairy altogether. There are tons of healthy yet tasty options including using almond milk or vanilla-flavoured soy milk.
Moderation is key
Reserve your coffees for the morning and try to switch to tea after 2pm. For the first few days it may feel like you’re climbing the mountain of doom on no energy, but that feeling will clear up in no time. Like most things, coffee only becomes unhealthy when we have too much of it.
There’s no need to ditch coffee completely.
Combine your coffee and protein shakes
You are about to read the secret to actually being excited for your 7am sweat session: add a cup of coffee to your protein shake. That’s right!
Combine it with oatmeal
Sounds gross, but hear us out. It’s a genius way to get your breakfast fix for a busy morning: Simply pour some leftover coffee into a jar of healthy oats and add some maple syrup or honey, before leaving it to chill overnight. It’s not only delicious, it also means you don’t have to scramble in the morning – just grab and go!
