3 Coffee Hacks For a Better Cup of Joe
A recent study found that your daily coffee habit may help boost longevity. Here are 3 coffee hacks to make sure your caffeine habit is benefiting your health and not harming it.
Swap nondairy creamers for coconut milk creamer, coconut milk or coconut oil.
Nondairy creamer is made from corn syrup solids and partially hydrogenated oil, better known as trans fats. The havoc trans fats place on your body is something you want to try and avoid.
My favorite add for my coffee is coconut milk. When blended in the blender the oil emulsifies and you get a nice creamy topping on the coffee.
Swap flavor shots with your favorite extracts.
My favorite is vanilla or almond extract. During the winter, I opt for peppermint. Peppermint Mocha anyone?
Many of the flavor shots are loaded with sugar as well as artificial flavors and colors.
Swap some or all of the the sugar for cinnamon.
Adding a couple teaspoons of sugar to a few cups of coffee can quickly get you to your sugar limit. Adding cinnamon to coffee gives it a natural sweetness. The cinnamon works for you in other ways too. It is an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial spice, so it is the perfect addition, especially during the winter months.Adding a couple teaspoons of sugar to a few cups of coffee can quickly get you to your sugar limit.
