Coffee is a drink that I say no to start my day without, like many of you I’m sure, and thankfully, coffee is really healthy for us without adding anything to it. Coffee is a unbelievable source of B vitamins, magnesium, manganese, fiber, zinc, copper, and chromium. It’s been verified to boost mental focus, ward off diabetes and Parkinson’s disease, reduce depression, provide energy, and help you feel alert and positive.
The problem with coffee comes when you add creamers with hydrogenated oils, refined sugar, and artificial sweeteners that contain unsafe additives. If you’re not sure how to make your coffee healthier or if you are looking for healthier ingredients to put in flavor to your coffee, I’ve got some unbelievable options for you to choose from- not to worry!
1. Selecting a dairy-free milk
Dairy-free milk is the best thing you can add to your coffee in place of cow’s milk. It’s containing no palm oil and no cane syrup like some vegan creamers do. Cane juices are simply less refined forms of straight sugar. Avoiding them can develop your blood sugar and also help curb nasty sugar addictions at the same time. Dairy-free milk contains twice the calcium of regular milk, is naturally free of oil and provides you with Vitamin B12. Just be sure to select an unsweetened variety to avoid added sugars from cane juice found in regular Dairy-free milk. I like unsweetened vanilla almond milk and unsweetened soy milk the best. Those are the most creamy and in my opinion, the less overwhelming in flavor when added to coffee.
2. Put in Some Stevia
Stevia is a natural sweetener prepared from the stevia plant. It’s contains no fake ingredients and when buy from a trusted source, will not be bitter and will also be free of GMO’s, allergens, and nasty additives. It’s greatest to buy organic stevia when you can so you’re rest assured it’s the actual deal. Adding stevia to your beverages is an simple way to sweeten them without any sugar. I use two packets or 2 full drops of liquid stevia per cup of coffee.
3. Add Non-Alcoholic Flavoring
If you’re using a fan of flavored coffee, you’ll be thankful to know you can make your own at home. All you need to do is add a dash of flavoring to your coffee ground before brewing. I like vanilla, but you can choose from a selection at the store. I do suggest buying organic Non-Alcoholic Flavoring, which I think taste better and I be thankful for that they’re free of chemicals and alcohol in general.
4. Use a Bit of Cinnamon
Since coffee is a rich source of chromium, it obviously supports strong blood sugar levels. Cinnamon is also a rich source of chromium, so using a dash of cinnamon to your coffee is a great way to increase this benefit. Chromium not only helps support strong blood sugar levels but can also ward off sweetened cravings.
