Benefits of Rooibos
- Rooibos is an ideal caffeine-free alternative to coffee because it has an earthy flavor with notes of vanilla.
- Unlike other teas, Rooibos is low in tannins – making it perfect for those with sensitive stomachs.
- This powerhouse tea contains polyphenols not found in other teas that help balance gut microflora and support healthy immune function.
Just Add Dates
Dried dates are naturally super sweet, leaving no need for extra sweeteners. Dates have a rich caramel, toffee-like flavor when added to drinks or desserts for coffee shop taste without artificial flavors. Dried dates are available year-round in the dried fruit section of grocery stores.
For a dairy-free drink that’s gentle on the stomach, full-fat coconut milk creates a velvety creamy texture with subtle coconut flavor. The full-fat content of coconut milk makes this drink satiating, perfect for an end of the day drink or a midday hunger curb. Other plant-based milks like almond, hemp or cashew can also be used.
Once blended this drink can be sipped hot or cooled and poured over ice in the summer.
