Here’s an interesting concept. How about a cup of coffee that may give you that little buzz, not just because of the caffeine but because it’s an all round nutritious beverage?
Most of us crave a good cup of coffee at times, and caffeine in the right doses can be beneficial (check out our article "To Drink or Not to Drink - Is Coffee Really Bad For you?"). When you make your cup with almond mylk however, things start to look much more interesting. Almond mylk is not only great for people who are lactose intolerant, but it is also easy to digest and delivers high amounts of nutrients including calcium and vitamin D. It has low levels of simple sugars giving it a low glycemic nature. This means it is fully digested by the body and used for energy. It’s also recommended if you are diabetic.
How To Make Almond Mylk Coffee
- Start by making your almond mylk.
- Make an espresso the way you like it. You will need about 1/3 cup of espresso. I like to use a stovetop espresso maker.
- If you like your coffee sweet, add a teaspoon of honey or coconut sugar to the espresso.
- Pour 1½ cups of almond mylk into a glass and pour in the espresso.
- You can drink it immediately, but this version of coffee is best served cold, so either put it in the fridge for a few hours or serve it with some ice.
- Now what could be better than that – a coffee you can really feel good about!
