3 Amazingly Healthy Superfood Latte Recipes
With the rise of superfoods, more and more coffee shops have stepped up their game with interesting lattes using superfood ingredients touted for their rich health benefits. However, these specialty drinks are often loaded with sugar, which is basically the opposite of what you’re looking for when seeking out superfoods!
And while I love a good double espresso (note: coffee is a superfood after all!), sometimes caffeine is not exactly what my body needs when I’m seeking a comforting drink. Whether it’s a cozy mid-afternoon pick-me-up or an after-dinner treat, a warm drink can really hit the spot.
Enter: Healthy lattes made with superfoods such as beetroot, chaga mushroom, and blue majik. They’re sweetened with only a touch of honey or maple syrup, so you don’t sacrifice taste by cutting refined sugar. And they all have different health benefits, so take a peak below and try making one of these coffee-shop worthy recipes at home!
