Need to spice things up? We show you four healthy hacks to pimp your cuppa.

Everyday coffee – the way you like it: with or without sugar, milk or honey. The purpose is usually the same: to boost your focus so you can hack away at those emails and other tasks you’ve kinda sorta been putting off.
But pairing your cup with a simple something extra can not only elevate your drinking experience, it can also mean serious health boons for your bod. Here, we add some of the best ways to get the best from your order.

1. Make It Bulletproof

Advocates of the low-carb high-fat diet (read: keto queens) swear that adding a spoon of healthy fats to your coffee (called Bulletproof coffee), makes for a better cup. This is because the active ingredient, MCT oilis said to, “supercharge your brain function and create effortless fat loss with no cravings”. It’s also known to require less energy and enzymes to be digested compared to other fat types. 

Drink… Before you hit the gym for an added dose of healthy energy.
How To Make It: Add MCT oil to your cup, along with organic, grass-fed butter. Here’s a handy recipe you can try.

2. Spice It Up

Chucking in some cinnamon to your cup is a great way to add flavour to your brew minus the kilojoules. Plus, cinnamon comes with a slew of huge health benefits. It’s rich in antioxidants  the stuff that gives you a healthier heart  and helps fight inflammation, which means it’s great to repair tissue damage after that sweat session.

Drink… In the morning after a big night out or after your workout.
How To Make It:  You could add a few sticks of cinnamon to your pot of joe and have them brew with the beans, or throw in a sprinkle to your finished cup.

3. Have It Cold

When you really need that fix but it’s hot out, have it cold over ice! If you don’t have a local hipster cold brew supplier near you, then you can just make it yourself. Bonus: it may be better for your stomach to digest than hot coffee.

Drink… When it’s hot outside, or your tummy feels iffy.
How To Make It: Soak a cup of coffee grounds in three cups of water overnight. Press coffee and pour. Add some vanilla essence if you want, to taste. Proceed to be super hip and cool.

4. Go Coco-Nutty

Ditch the milk and opt for coconut cream. The natural oils add a delicious creaminess to your cup.

Drink… When you’re craving something rich and creamy.
How To Make It: Brew your coffee as usual, and instead of having milk, spoon a dollop of coconut cream. It’ll melt into the hot coffee, making a rich, creamy cup. To make your brew extra creamy and frothy on its own, try the Nespresso Vertuo Next machine, which reads the barcode embedded in your capsule to adjust the settings and give you juuuuust the right cup. Bonus: it’s 54% made up of recycled materials!

5. Give It A Collagen Boost

Hydrolysed collagen is having a huge moment, and for good reason. Not only is it being touted as a skin-boosting and anti-ageing tonic, anecdotal evidence suggests it can speed up the healing process for joints and bone injuries. Not only that, but it gives your brew a creamier taste, sans milk.
Drink… in the afternoon or every morning as part of your morning routine, along with taking your vitamins
How To Make It: Simply add a scoop of powder to your cup and stir.
