Recipe for a Great Alternative to Coffee
For many years our family battled with completely kicking caffeine from our daily rituals.
The mornings are a great time for a warm cup of java or maybe after dinner. But even though we knew that caffeine was bad for us (I even ended up with a case of thyroid dysfunction because of caffeine) we continued to drink caffeinated tea or coffee. It was a matter of habit and great taste, not health.
Then we discovered Roastaroma tea made by Celestial Seasonings. It has the look, smell and taste of coffee without the caffeine. We started drinking it only with a splash of almond milk, then one day I combined one bag of tea with a tablespoon of green stevia powder and brewed in the coffee maker. Later, I went one step further and added a dash of cinnamon and kept the almond milk. Whoa! It tasted like something right out of Starbucks. With this recipe, my wife and I did not have to give up our morning ritual; we just deleted the caffeine from the equation. Our energy levels are higher and we have better mental clarity to boot.
If you are really determined to kick the caffeine addiction and have switched over to decaf thinking it was better for you, I am so sorry to to burst your bubble, decaf is no better. Green tea contains less caffeine then decaf coffee. The recipe below contains zero caffeine and it can be made into a latte that will blow your socks off.
Give this recipe a try and let us know how you like it. Watch the video below for a short tutorial.
In the coffee maker brew:
6 cups water
1 tablespoon of green stevia at the bottom of the filter
