15 Healthy Ways To Flavor and Make Coffee
Sweet
I can’t imagine a day without coffee.
Coffee has numerous health benefits.
But, by adding a few spoonful’s of sugar
to it, you turn that healthy drink into something
that is harmful.
The good news is that there are many sugar-free
ways to sweeten coffee and particularly, iced
coffee.
It’s best to slowly decrease the amount
of sugar you add to your coffee drinks.
Going cold turkey can be a shock to your taste
buds, and you might find that your coffee
tastes like shit, so it helps to start slow.
As you cut back on the sugar, try these naturally
sweet alternatives to flavor your coffee instead.
But before we start, I would like to ask that

help us out.
Ok let’s begin!
Number 1 – Raw Honey
Honey is a popular and healthy alternative
to sugar.
If you don’t like too much flavor, but want
your coffee a little sweet, simply add a teaspoon
of raw honey.
Number 2 – Cinnamon
Add some of this superfood to your coffee.
It’s a natural spice that will make your
coffee healthier and more flavorful.
Number 3 – Coconut Milk
If you’re looking to add sweetness without
a lot of flavor, try pouring a bit of coconut
milk into your cup of coffee.
This healthy coffee creamer alternative will
also provide you with a dose of vitamins,
antioxidants, magnesium and iron.
Number 4 – Pure Maple Syrup
While this one tends to be associated with
pancakes, using it as a sweetener will do
wonders to your coffee.
The sweet nutty taste is just enough to make
you forget about those sugar-filled toffee
nut lattes.
Make sure to use PURE maple syrup in your
coffee.
Number 5 – Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
Ditching mocha was never an option.
Adding a spoon of cocoa powder to your coffee,
sweetened with raw honey will make you question
the fact that your cup of mocha is actually
healthy.
Number 6 – Ginger
If you like gingerbread, then adding ginger
to your coffee will give you a similar taste!
Add a few slices of fresh ginger or a tablespoon
of ginger powder to your coffee.
Ginger also has the added benefit of being
a natural digestive aid.
Number 7 – Extracts
A few drops of a naturally-sweet extract is
one of my favorite ways to flavor foods and
beverages while keeping them sugar-free.
Extracts mix well with coffee – try a few
drops of pure vanilla, almond or hazelnut
extract in place of sugar.
Number 8 – Cardamom
Cardamom is commonly added to coffee in the
Middle East.
Adding a couple of seeds or sprinkling a dash
on your coffee is enough to give it a very
exotic taste.
Number 9 – Coconut Sugar
Coconut sugar is another natural alternative
to regular sugar, with the added bonus of
its nutty undertones to give your cup of coffee
a little flavor.
Number 10 – Dark Chocolate
To move one step beyond cocoa powder, try
adding a square of dark chocolate at the bottom
of your cup, then pour coffee over it.
When the chocolate completely melts, stir
it in with the coffee and you’ll have a
mouth-watering combination of mocha and hot
chocolate.
Number 11 – Almond Milk
The sweet nutty flavor of almonds will give
your coffee a natural flavor.
If you also add raw honey, you’ll have a
fully sweetened and flavored cup of coffee.
Number 12 – Dates
You can use date paste to sweeten and flavor
your coffee.
You can buy ready-made date paste, or, soak
dates for an hour and then blend them.
Number 13 – Toasted Coconut Flakes
Instead of sprinkling brown sugar on top of
your lattes, try sprinkling toasted coconut
flakes for a surprise flavor with every sip.
Number 14 – Cherries
Add a couple of pitted cherries in your cup
of black coffee.
This will give it a natural sweetness with
a strong fruity flavor.
Number 15 – Stevia
Stevia is a natural no-calorie sweetener extracted
from the South American stevia plant.
The extract is 300 times sweeter than sugar,
but it has no effect on blood sugar levels,
making it safe for diabetics.
Because stevia is so sweet, you only need
a small amount to sweeten your coffee, so
start with a half a teaspoon and then adjust
to taste.
Ditch that sugar, and try these healthy ways
to sweeten and flavor your coffee instead
– so you can enjoy a healthier and fresher
mug of coffee at any time of the day.
