5 natural drinks to replace coffee with so much energy

We know that the morning cup of coffee is sacred. But if you want to reduce your caffeine consumption or find a new cup of coffee-free happiness in the morning, we have prepared four ideas with the recipes. Have we piqued your interest? Cool, check out the recipes below.

1. Chicory coffee

Not really coffee at all, chicory “coffee” is made from roasted chicory roots as opposed to coffee beans. It does not contain caffeine, so there is much less noise around it. Its nutty, earthy flavor comes closest to the traditional coffee taste, making it a great choice for coffee lovers looking to reduce their caffeine intake. This infusion offers all the benefits of chicory root, including prebiotic fiber, vitamin B-6, and anti-inflammatory properties. Chicory root is excellent for gut health thanks to its inulin fiber content, which supports bowel function, reduces constipation and helps maintain a balance of healthy gut bacteria.


To make chicory coffee, mix 2 tablespoons of ground, roasted chicory root in 1 cup of hot water and wait 10 minutes before drinking.

2. Yellow Turmeric Milk

Anti-inflammatory golden milk gets its nickname because of the yellow, sun-kissed color that ground turmeric imparts. Turmeric, “the golden spice”, can really do everything. This powerful spice has been shown to offer benefits ranging from pain relief to reducing the symptoms of depression. This is thanks to the compound curcumin, which gives turmeric its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Pepper improves the bioavailability of turmeric, making the spice more effective in small doses, making it a great addition to your mug.


To prepare a delicious cup of golden milk, mix 1/2 teaspoon of ground turmeric with 1 cup of milk of your choice. Add 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger, honey to taste (optional), and a pinch of cinnamon and black pepper. Heat on the stove until the milk is frothy and serve.

3. Yerba Mate

Yerba mate, a tea-like concoction made from the Ilex paraguariensis tree, has been used both medicinally and socially for centuries. And now it could be your new favorite non-coffee swap. Yerba Mate contains more antioxidants than any other tea-like beverage (yes, including green tea!) and a host of therapeutic benefits. This is due to the abundance of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants present in the plant. Green tea also contains caffeine, which is great for people who want to get rid of the coffee but not the high. Not only is this good news for energy levels, but also for increased endurance, healthy weight management, and more.


To prepare a cup of yerba mate, steep the leaves in hot water like a tea and strain, or use a traditional mate straw (bombilla) and cup.

4. Mushroom tea

To replace his coffee with a highly nutritious drink, sip on a mushroom-filled infusion. A mushroom tea is loaded with antioxidants to fight oxidative stress and powerful prebiotics to support digestive health. With all the antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and immune-boosting properties of mushrooms, there’s more than one reason to try this earthy concoction. For a serious natural energy boost, try Cordyceps Mushrooms.


Although you can buy pre-brewed mushroom coffee, it’s also easy to make your own mushroom tea at home. To do this, mix a teaspoon of mushroom powder with a cup of hot water.

5. Chia seed drink

Turns out, chia seeds are a pretty awesome drink to swap with your cup of coffee. It’s logic. Although these seeds are tiny, they pack a massive amount of fiber, antioxidants, protein, omega-3s, and nutrients. Small but mighty, chia seeds have been shown to reduce both inflammation and blood pressure, and stabilize blood sugar levels. And as studies on athletes show, chia seeds can be a great source of long-lasting energy and increased endurance.


To make this simple two-ingredient drink, mix 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 1 cup of water and let sit in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. Personalize the chia drink by adding a touch of honey or agave, a squeeze of lemon or fruit juice.
