9 Simple Ways to Make Healthy Coffee
Updated: Jul 25
Raise your hand if you drink 9,000 cups of coffee every day.
Okay, I don't really.
I even skip coffee some days if I'm lazy or just not in the mood. But that doesn't mean that I'm not drinking a lot of it anyways!
This is why it was important to me to find a few "healthier" coffee options to get a little bit more out of my cup.
I'm not saying that coffee is bad for you or anything, I'm just saying that if we're drinking a ton of it anyway, why not find ways to get more nutritional value out of it?
It couldn't hurt. So here are 9 tips for how to make coffee healthy that you must try!
1) Add Protein
If you already brew a cup of coffee and drink a protein shake every day, why not combine the two?
Trust me, you want to combine the two. Here's one way to do it that's so good.
Protein powder added directly into hot coffee doesn't dissolve that well, so try pouring a Quest protein shake into a glass of black iced coffee for a delicious and protein-packed flavored coffee.
Choosing vanilla or chocolate is usually the healthiest option, keeping the ingredients simple, but a fun flavor like salted caramel is also delicious.
Either way, you're getting more out of your cup with this healthy coffee recipe by adding some protein into it!
2) Collagen Creamer
Healthy coffee creamer is a thing!
If you're like me and cringe when you take a look at the sugar content of typical flavored creamers, this might be a good option for you to look into.
I love a sweet, sweet creamer don't get me wrong. But every day is an excess of processed sugars that we just don't need.
One healthy coffee creamer to try is collagen creamer!
What's collagen? Collagen supplements help**
support bone and joint health
play a role in general wellness
improve skin and hair health
But, our bodies don't produce enough on our own, especially as we get older or when we perform extreme exercise.
Vital Proteins makes collagen nutrition easy with a variety of products that can be used in many of your favorite snacks or recipes!
The Collagen Creamer is a simple and tasty option for getting more out of your cup of coffee. Here are some quick stats on it:
healthy fats from organic coconut milk powder
10g of collagen peptides
No dairy, soy, gluten, artificial sweeteners, or added sugars.
While it is not a low-calorie food (1 serving (2 scoops) has 140 calories) you’re not getting empty calories thanks to all of its great benefits!
