Caffeine is an absolute must for some people to get out of the door in the morning. But too much caffeine can cause dehydration, exhaustion of the adrenal glands (fatigue), impaired digestion, and dependency. There are much better ways to get a boost any time of day. These super caffeine-free potions are full of anti-inflammatory ingredients for digestion, protein for concentration, and vitamins to stabilize blood sugar levels without any jittery side effects. Here is how to make one.
Choose A Base
A base is what the majority of the beverage will be made of. This recipe is for a hot drink, but it can be poured over ice on hot days for a refreshing treat. The base can be as simple as hot water for those who wish to cut calories or warm nut milk for a delicious flavor. Brewed herbal tea or caffeine-free coffee can also be used. Choose one that provides complimentary flavors that will not overpower the rest of the drink, such as a mellow, caffeine-free green tea.
