I’ve been drinking coffee since I was ten years old. My dad would drink it every morning – black – and I wanted to be just like him, so one morning I asked for a cup. I remember I didn’t like it much at first, but I felt so proud and grown up to have my own cup of coffee that I just pretended to like it and kept drinking it until one day I realized I actually did.
Fast forward to my first pregnancy and I stopped drinking it cold turkey (like the paranoid first time mom I was) and the withdraw was AWFUL! I started going down this rabbit hole of thought, asking myself what would happen if a catastrophe hit and there was no coffee and I couldn’t protect or take care of my child because I was addicted to coffee and I just decided I didn’t want to be addicted to it any more (Yes, sometimes I make decisions based on imaginary scenarios I’ve created in my mind). Since then I’ve had the occasional cup here and there, but now that I’m not a regular drinker it REALLY affects me when I do.
I love the jolt of energy and the taste and experience, but I don’t love the way my heart races, my breath smells and I start to sweat in a very non-attractive way.
I’ve often thought, if only I could still enjoy the taste and benefits of coffee without the side-effects and addiction.
The Beachbody gods must have heard me, because lo and behold, the newest Shakeology flavor is: Cafe Latte.
This flavor has no more caffeine than the regular Shakeology formulas, but has the rich flavor of coffee and the amazing health benefits found in the entire coffee fruit. To say I’m obsessed with this newest flavor would be an understatement. I only ordered one box of it and my husband and I have been neglecting our previous favorite chocolate flavor the whole month!!
I’ve compiled some of my favorite Cafe Latte flavors, but to be perfectly honest, I LOVE it with 10oz of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and Ice, just shaken in a shaker cup. However, on those days I like to be fancy, here are my top ten recipes.
– TROPICAL COFFEE: Cafe Latte Shakeology, coconut milk, 1/2 banana, 1 tsp cocoa powder, ice
