But, as with any daily routine, sometimes it just makes sense to spice things up. Try out some of these great ideas to add flavour and variety to your coffee!
○Coconut oil makes a fantastic (and healthy!) addition to your morning. Add some to your cup for a subtle, nutty flavour.
○There’s nothing quite like it, eh? Try sweetening your iced coffee with some pure maple syrup as a deliciously “healthy” alternative to sugar!
○Add a spoonful of cinnamon to your grounds before brewing, or use a cinnamon stick to stir your coffee. Use some sugar or other sweetener if you need to balance out the strength!
○Alright, this particular addition is probably best skipped over for breakfast. But, mixing or blending some ice cream with your java is the perfect treat for a hot summer afternoon!
○This strong, nutty spice is traditionally used in Turkish and Palestinian coffees. Stir ground cardamom into your cup, or add crushed pods to your coffee grounds. This spice packs a hearty punch to get you going in the morning!
Vanilla or Almond Extract
○You don’t have to rely on artificial sweeteners to add a little something extra! Vanilla extract sweetens without overwhelming your coffee, and almond extract provides another way to add nutty undertones.
○Make your very own mocha for half the cost by stirring in a spoonful of cocoa powder! If you’re feeling indulgent, try melting a square of dark chocolate in the bottom of your cup for an extra rich cup of joe.
○Not only does this make for a drink reminiscent of gingerbread, ginger has great health benefits! Quell a queasy stomach and soothe a sore throat by adding a few slices of ginger root to your cup while it’s hot.
