Here’s a great morning coffee alternative without the sugar and caffeine that comes with, well, real coffee.
It tastes very close to coffee, it’s filling and seems to trick my body into thinking I might’ve just had a coffee.
- Teeccino Coffee comes in a “tea” bag, caffeine free and tastes fairly similar to coffee
- 1 tbsp real butter
- 1 tbsp coconut milk
- a pinch of vanilla
I recently discovered a coffee shop called “Butter It Up” which is Paleo-ish friendly. NOT that I’m promoting the Paleo Diet, but this is definitely a healthy way to make coffee (gluten, sugar, caffeine free) and it doesn’t taste any different from the “unhealthy” way to make coffee, especially if you use actual coffee beans instead of Teeccino. The butter adds healthy fat, and combined with coconut milk and vanilla tastes like adding sugar and creamer to your coffee. SO worth it. Enjoy!

For those who haven’t seen my original post on #100DaysOfHealthy, I have a list containing 11 items, and I plan to start each item on a new week and report back the changes I see throughout that week. Once I start an item on the list, I will continue it until the 100 days is over. Hopefully each item will become a lifestyle change if I think it’s worthy.
