Healthy Ways to Jazz up your Coffee
August 16, 2018
Do more with your coffee than the usual black, minus the guilt.
Coffee alone is a rich source of antioxidants that can reduce risks of diseases from diabetes to Alzheimer’s disease, a recent study led by the University of Southampton shows.
If you want to make your coffee sweeter, sugar is not a healthy option. Too much sugar can put you at risk of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and some forms of cancer, according to an article published on Harvard Health.
But worry not if you want to satisfy your sweet tooth with every cup, here are healthy alternatives to sugar:
- 1. Cinnamon
If you want to wean yourself off sugar and creamer, adding a dash of cinnamon will not only add a sweet taste to your coffee, it will also boost your immune system. Coffee with cinnamon is a healthy mix. Cinnamon is packed with medicinal properties, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties that help the body fight infections and lower risks of diseases such as diabetes, heart and neurodegenerative diseases, studies show.
- 2. Cocoa Powder
Craving for that mocha flavor? Adding cocoa to your coffee will add chocolate goodness to your cup. Plus, it is good for your heart. Cocoa lowers the risks of cardiovascular diseases, scientific evidence shows. Make your coffee extra chocolatey with ECHOstore’s Choco Loco cocoa powder.
- 3. Coconut Milk
If you are trying out the Paleo diet, coconut is among the staples. For vegans, it is a lactose-free milk alternative. Adding coconut milk to your organic coffee will give it a creamy taste and additional nutrients including vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5, B6, and minerals like iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.
