If you like coffee, than it's probably a lifeline. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people say they can’t get through the day without it. Unfortunately, coffee isn’t good for you. Aside from staining your teeth, it's addicting and can make your body depended on it for short, jittery bursts of energy. It will wake you up, but you’ll only crash later—unless you drink another cup.
Some people drink coffee for the taste. If that’s you, then this might be exactly what you’re looking for. This drink tastes like coffee without the caffeine, which makes it a healthy alternative.
The know-all and be-all of teas, these drink is rich with antioxidants boost your immune system and helps wake you up. Now, it does have a little caffeine, but green tea is often considered one of the healthiest drinks around (it’s a great, natural way to clean your face too!)
Dandelion Root Tea
Most people hate seeing these yellow plants on their lawn, they have several natural health benefits. The taste is slightly bitter, but so is coffee. Adding some milk or honey will sweeten it up.
Apples are fantastic for you! An apple a day really will keep the doctor away. Though highly acidic, drinking a form of apple juice (with real apples left. The overly processed stuff won’t help) or even eating apples has great healthy benefits.
Lemons are good for you (again, you can clean your face or hair with its juice!) and though it tastes nothing like coffee, this drink is a healthy alternative.
Not the most flattering name, but this drink it loaded with nutrients. Extremely healthy, with more benefits than just helping you wake up, it’s a great alternative.
This tea will help your immune system and wake you up. Great tasting, it provides yet another healthy alternative to coffee.
Coffee isn’t the only drink that will wake you up in the morning (or afternoon), but it probably is one of the worst for you. Why suffer the bad breath, jitters, and addiction when deliciously healthy alternatives are waiting?
