Ditch Your Morning Coffee For These Alternatives

I’ve been constantly reminding all of you to ditch coffee during my previous posts. Again, why? Ditching coffee in your life has been proven to improve sleep quality and reduce anxiety. However, most of you fail to do this because it’s such an important part of your morning routine to be sipping that cup of coffee to wake your senses up. I’ve written a couple of coffee alternatives before, but I found extra delicious alternatives a couple of days back and I want to share it with you again. If you want something that’s not plain, but rather extra and Starbuck’s like– without too much caffeine, these are great coffee alternatives that you will definitely enjoy.

    Wow, everything looks delicious.

  • Alison Thompson says:

    Matcha is my favorite alternative to coffee. It tastes really nice and it’s actually better tasting than green tea.

    • Rebecca Givens says:

      Both are my favorite! I don’t know which one I love more.

  • Wendy Ball says:

    I’m one of those people who really need coffee in the morning or else– you won’t get to talk to me. I’ll be a LION all day.

  • These coffee alternatives are like breakfast on-the-go too! I mean the cashew nuts and all. It’s a heavy drink.?

  • Eloise Hines says:

    That definitely looks like something you can buy in Starbucks, but I would agree that it’s healthier!

  • Marian Cox says:

    Eww mushroom in cocoa? Isn’t that too weird?! ?

    • Della Blake says:

      Mushroom actually tastes neutral in cocoa. The taste is actually overpowered by the cocoa itself.

  • Rose Walters says:

    I don’t mind ditching my coffee for all of this.

  • Blanche Rivera says:

    Chai lattes are my favorite. I didn’t know that this could actually be a good alternative to coffee. I’m going to try this for a week and see what happens!

  • I love matcha so much. I’ve been drinking this for more than 5 months now eversince the hype of this and I haven’t craved coffee even for one bit.

  • I’ve had a more stable energy after ditching coffee. At first, switching to green tea was still unbearable because I was looking for that creamier taste. These alternatives are better than my current matcha green tea in the morning.

    • Oh, that’s it! I was looking for that creamy milky taste too because I always love putting milk in my coffee in the morning. Tea doesn’t seem to make it all better and I just ended up drinking coffee again.

  • If what I’m going to drink every morning is this aesthetically pleasing, I would feel so fabulous.?

  • Yummy!!! I’m not a coffee drinker but these drinks look really nice. I’m going to try it out. I just have to shop for the ingredients and stock it up.

  • Using maple syrup or honey in your matcha makes it taste really good. I don’t use sugar at all.
