3 CAFFEINE-FREE LATTE’S

I am going on week 4 without coffee and feeling amazing. I have been having matcha lattes, or chai lattes in place of coffee, but some days I cut the caffeine out entirely. However, I still like to have something in the mornings, so I started making caffeine-free superfood lattes! And let me tell you, they are so delicious and make me feel amazing!

These are great for anyone who doesn’t drink caffeine, or for those of you wanting to cut back or take a caffeine break (I highly recommend it!). I think a lot of the coffee love comes from the routine of making it. I know that personally I love the routine of making a latte in the morning.

Dandelion Root Latte:

1 1/2 t. dandelion root powder

1 T. coconut butter

12 oz homemade hemp milk (you can sub for any nut milk, or boiled water)

1 t. cinnamon

1 t. vanilla

1 t. cacao powder

1 t. ashwaghanda*

1 t. maca powder*

1 t. chaga mushroom powder*

Heat the milk over the stove, but do not boil! Add all ingredients to your blender and blend for 2 minutes!



Herbal “Coffee”:

1 t. roasted chicory root

1/2 c. filtered water

1/2 c. homemade hemp milk

1 t. vanilla

Boil water, and warm milk on to stove. Add everything to your blender, blend 2 minutes and enjoy! You can also brew chicory root like regular coffee. Use 1 t. chicory root to every 1 cup you make. A great coffee alternative that tastes like coffee!


Spirulina Latte:

1 t. spirulina

1/2 t. chlorella

1/2 t cordyceps mushroom powder

1 T. raw local honey

1 T. coconut butter

12 oz. homemade hemp milk

1/2 t. ashwaghanda*

1/2 t. maca powder*

Heat milk on stove. Add everything into a blender, blend 2 minutes!

Why did I stop drinking coffee?

As many of you may know from following me on Instagram, I have stopped drinking my beloved coffee. I stopped for two major reasons: the acidity and the caffiene. Coffee was causing my body a lot of problems like breakouts, bloat, trouble sleeping, and increased stress/anxiety. Suffering postpartum anxiety, adrenal fatigue and severe hormonal imbalances, I got to the point of being done with things not being enough and cut out a lot of things from diet. Coffee was the first! It was a lot easier than I expected it to be, and I noticed major changes by the third day.

*adaptogens:

These all are optional, but highly recommended! I take a lot of different adaptogens. They support adaptation to stress and anxiety, hence the name.

I buy all of my herbs, adaptogens, coconut (to make coconut butter), hemp seeds, etc. from Mountain Rose Herbs. You can buy them in bulk for a great price here. I started taking ashwaghanda about 16 months ago, and discovered this year that it is so much cheaper to but it in bulk from Mountain Rose Herbs! They carry high-quality, organic ingredients that I trust 100%!

*This is a sponsored post, thank you Mountain Rose Herbs for supplying the product used to make these delicious lattes. Although this is a sponsored post, I would never recommend of work with a brand I did not already invest in and completely trust. I love Mountain Rose Herbs, and have for years!
