Going to Starbucks is a heavenly place to grab our favorite frappucino, but most of the time we end up regretting our decisions on ordering the happy hour drinks after gaining some weight. But it doesn’t mean you need to give up your caffeine because you can still make a healthier choice in the coffee shop when you know what to order.

Just switching your regular latte to skinny alone can slash calories in half and that is a big switch to a healthier Starbucks drinks.

Here are five Starbucks fully caffeinated drinks that are equally satisfying options to your favorite regular coffee.

Whole Milk Cappuccinos

Cappuccino is a favorite by most coffee lovers because the drink provides a perfect balance of double espresso shots and steamed milk that is why anytime, and anywhere cappuccino counts as a transcendent order. What’s more fabulous about this drink is that it’s made with foamed milk, and already clock in as low-calorie coffee drink even though the creaminess still feels like a treat.

A tall made cappuccino with whole milk at Starbucks contains only 110 calories!

TIP: Add flavor with cocoa powder, cinnamon, or vanilla, and you’ve got a delicious morning bev with 6 grams of protein and about 75 milligrams of caffeine — or more if you add extra shots.

A misto with low- or non-fat milk is also a good bet if you’re looking for an extra jolt. They’re made with coffee instead of espresso and use less milk than a latte, which also cuts back on calories. You can order these with a pump of sugar-free syrup if you’re looking for a little sweetness too!

Iced or Hot Tea

Starbucks Teavana® Hot Brewed Teas

If you are looking for a drink to ease up on the caffeine tea is a good alternative that is virtually calorie-free and super hydrating. Tea is a good alternative to coffee for a little pick me up. Herbal decaf blends include less than 15 milligrams, while caffeinated black and green teas still pack around 45 milligrams.

Skinny Vanilla or Mocha Lattes

Vanilla and Mocha lattes are always a sweet treat because most baristas made this with full sugar. But instead of ordering the regular latte you can opt for the skinny one because they are less in sugar, pack up to 15 grams of protein with 120 in grande skinny vanilla compared to 250 in the regular version.

Cold Brew

Fans of cold brew coffee love the creaminess and smooth taste. The prolonged brewing process also makes them seem a little sweeter, so you’re less inclined to add extra sugar. Plus, cold brew can contain more caffeine than traditional iced brew, so it’s a better “bang for your buck” if you’re looking for a big boost.

Black coffee is the healthiest coffee but if you are looking for something extra adding a little bit of sugar or milk won’t hurt. So instead of using artificial sweeteners and, more dairy products, you can use cinnamon, honey or stevia for natural sweetener. And instead of using dairy products you can opt for non-dairy products like soybean milk or oat milk.

Broccoli Coffee Is The New Way To Consume Veggies Says A New Study

One of the problems the world is facing today is health issue where people these days develop diseases like diabetes, coronary diseases, cancer, fatigue, obesity, and more this is because people nowadays, eat unhealthy foods and, eat more process foods.

Thanks to the new development of technologies, where vegetables can now powderize and can still reap its health benefits like the newly develop powder broccoli that can be added into smoothies, baked goods, and even coffee.

The Australian government science agency CSIRO and agriculture group Hort Innovation is grounding up broccolis and turned into powder for easy consumption.

Broccoli is a good source of fiber, vitamin B6, vitamin E, and manganese. Every two tablespoons of powder are equivalent to a whole serving of vegetables.

The chief executive of Hort Innovation, John Lloyd, says the powder is also ideal for smoothies, soups and baked goods.

“Research shows the average Australian is still not eating the recommended daily intake of vegetables a day, and options such as broccoli powder will help address this,” he said on Wednesday.

Nowadays people are not eating many vegetables but drink a lot of coffee that is why this one Melbourne cafe called Common Folk has started experimenting with the powder broccoli by stirring it into coffee. The coffee drink is called “broccolatte,” by adding broccoli powder to the milk for their lattés. The idea of this “broccolatte,” is to have your first serving of vegetables out of the way before breakfast.

Though coffee lovers who tried the “broccolatte,” seems not loving the broccoli-flavored coffee. But CSIRO said the powder broccoli is not only for coffee but can also be used in other things, like smoothies, dips, soups, and bread.

The powder and range of snacks are being developed as part of a research project that aims to reduce vegetable waste by creating healthy food products from “ugly” produce.

CSIRO’s broccoli powder sounds like an interesting supplement. Though it may have mixed feedback from coffee lovers when adding into coffee, adding into smoothies seems tasty, and adding some to brownies or a spinach dip would go over well.

The difference of iced coffee, cold brew, and nitro coffee

0

Since the discovery of iced coffee this had become a big hit in the coffee industry over the years, and nowadays iced coffee is one of the favorites by coffee lovers all year round. Cold brew coffee made its name in the coffee industry, amidst the increase of methods on how to make iced coffee, it takes an in-depth knowledge to fully understand all the technique of this well, love beverage.

Making iced coffee is not just putting ice in your coffee, but making iced coffee has three different methods, that also have a different price, taste, and texture.

Let’s look at the different types and ways in making iced coffee.

Iced Coffee

iced coffee

Iced coffee is the most popular type of cold brew, a classic, reliable, and famously over-iced summer time on-the-go.

How it’s made:

Well, iced coffee is pretty much your average joe. It’s brewed hot like your regular cup but at double strength, so when it’s poured over (and melts) a pitcher of ice, it won’t be too watery.

How it tastes:

If you get used to drinking black coffee, then the taste of this is not surprising. Though the kick of this coffee is the added ice that made its texture light, refreshing, and a little more acidic.

What makes its extra penny?

Iced coffee costs more than the hot stuff because of the extra materials involved—like straws, ice (not to mention the ice machine required), and plastic cups, which can cost up to two times the price of their paper counterparts. It’s typically the cheapest of all the iced varieties, however, because the process of making it isn’t time-consuming.

The best way to drink is:

You can drink this coffee with no added sweeteners, but if you want to add something fun to lessen a bit its acidity, you can add dairy or nondairy creamers.

Cold Brew

steep cold brew

Cold brew is different from Iced coffee though both of them are chilled but, the process of making is different. It’s believed that the cold brew had first emerged in the early 17th century, but it was not popular during that time since the hot coffee is the king of all cups during those days. Only after ten years where cold brew has made its name in households and finding its way into grocery stores, restaurants, and any coffee shops.

How it’s made:

Cold brew doesn’t require ice, but making a cold brew coffee is a process of steeping the beans in cool water at room temperature within 12 to 24 hours to slowly become its best taste. After 24hrs of waiting, you can now finally strained out the coffee and served chilled.

How it tastes:

Hot-brewed coffee is bitter in taste and more acidic, but the cold brew is made with cold water that is why the taste is slightly sweeter, a bit milder, and way less acidic than your average iced joe. Though the aroma and flavor will be less intense, they won’t change dramatically over time like hot coffee. So you can drink it the next day, and the next day, and it will taste just as fresh.

What you’re paying for?

We’ve all wondered why cold brew cashes out anywhere from 50 cents to a dollar more than regular iced coffee this is because the process of making is more complicated than making a regular iced coffee, and it requires more time to get the perfect brew. Not only does the process take way longer, but cold brew also requires about twice the amount of coffee grounds as its more traditional counterpart.

The best way to drink is:

Cold brew is best to drink itself without adding creamer or sweetener to enjoy its goodness.

Nitro Brew

Nitro brew coffee

Nitro brew is a bubblier cold brew that comes from a keg. It grew in popularity when Starbucks rolled out its own variety a few years ago, delighting those who had always secretly wished coffee was just beer.

How it’s made:

The coffee is typically first made using the cold brew process, then poured into a keg. It’s then infused with tiny nitrogen bubbles and routed through a pressurized valve to create the “on tap” situation that looks (and tastes) undeniably cooler than any Keurig.

How it tastes:

The biggest difference between nitro brew and a cold brew is the texture. While both of these iced options are subtle and sweet in flavor, a nitrogen cold brew delivers a super-smooth, rich body with a foamy top similar to your favorite draught beer.

What you’re paying for?

It’s no surprise that Nitro brew is the most expensive because the nitrogen infusion, and the costly equipment needed to make it, this drink might cost you as much as a small meal.

The best way to drink is:

You want something frothy, but you’re trying to avoid creamers or sweeteners. Oh, and you don’t mind paying top dollar for top taste.

Why children drink coffee these days?

0
kida, teens, coffee drinking habits. What parents needs to know

With today’s coffee generation we can’t deny the fact that the coffee companies today did a complex migration with their audiences. targeting the children and teens or millennial generations as the primary target audiences.

Seems, coffee drinking these days are becoming unfiltered where young people are dominating the adults, and at a very young age, they already started to drink coffee. Health experts generally aren’t happy about young people drinking more coffee, or any caffeinated beverage. The American Academy of Pediatrics says “caffeine and other stimulant substances contained in energy drinks have no place in the diet of children and adolescents.”

According to Alicia Diaz, age 2 she was sitting on her dad’s lap and stealing sips of his café Cubano. And she also remembers one time on the way to her school they stopped to get a cafe latte and split a bagel with her dad.

“When I was younger, I had a little bit of trouble falling asleep,” said Diaz, now 20. “I would never nap in kindergarten. But I never thought of this as unusual at the time.”

In a 2011 clinical guidance to pediatricians, the academy noted caffeine’s effects on anxiety, attentiveness, mood, motor activity and sleep as well as “various organ systems.”

“Most of us are drinking coffee, and younger consumers appear to be leading the charge,” said Bill Murray, National Coffee Association president, in a March 2017 press release.

In a coffee industry trade publication titled “Coffee Through the Ages,” the NCA reported “the most robust increase in coffee consumption among those 13-18.” In three years, the number of teens drinking coffee rose by 14 percent. Today, nearly four in 10 American teens drink coffee, according to the NCA’s research.

The growing number of children and teens these days drinking coffee are alarming even in some schools are selling coffee to students with in-school coffee shops, or vending machines.

Jack Bowland a student at Central Bucks High School West in Doylestown Borough always drink coffee before his most difficult classes, he said, “I am 16 years old, and I started drinking coffee at the beginning of this school year when I was 15,” he said. “I don’t currently have a set routine, but I drank coffee every morning back when I had more difficult classes.”

Jack’s mom said he drinks three to five “large cups” of coffee during weeks when he’s pushed to the limit.

“Jack will drink coffee when studying late or in the morning if he hasn’t had much sleep,” said mom Caroline Heise. “I use it as a method to stay awake to study and finish homework,” Jack said. “But I know it’s an unhealthy habit.”

In 2017, Central Bucks South in Warrington opened the Coffee Connection, a student-run coffee shop, which sells hot and iced coffee, hot chocolate, iced tea, lemonade and Arnold Palmers.

Another student from a different school at Council Rock High School South Dylan Nitka shares her reasons why she drank coffee at a young age, she said, she needs her first cup of coffee to wake up for school at 6:30 a.m.

“School being so early definitely affects how much coffee teens drink, since we aren’t able to sleep much due to staying up late doing homework and having to get up early to get ready. Some do rely on coffee to give us enough energy to get through the day.”

Dylan’s mom, Janet Nitka, said her daughter is spending too much money on coffee.

The coffee consumption among teens and children is related, to their school activities to keep them awake and focus on their studies,

The U.S. Department of Agriculture conducts biannual health and nutrition examination surveys. The data gathered was published in 2011, but the information collected in 2013 will be available in late 2018 or 2019, an agency spokesperson said.

Some of the studies conducted in 2010 for children ages 6 to 11 were getting 8.5 percent of their caffeine from coffee. Participating teens, ages 12 to 16, were getting 12 percent of their caffeine from coffee. The U.S. government clarifies that before obtaining the data, they asked parents’ permission before surveying anyone under age 18.

In medical studies, researchers have noted concerns about caffeine and sleep — something children and teens desperately needs, doctors, say. Coffee drinking of children and teens is bothering but, death on caffeine are rare, however, when it comes to younger ages too much coffee can lead to future complications.

Coffee is not the only source of caffeine chocolates, soda also, has caffeine contents which can also help provide the needed amount of caffeine to our body especially for the kids and teens. However, if we can’t avoid drinking coffee as a young individual, we should drink coffee in moderation remember that too much caffeine is not healthy for our well-being.
