A Healthier You: Almond Hazelnut Coffee Drink Recipe
We recently put up a blog post about four healthy ways you can enjoy coffee this New Year. In case you didn’t catch the full article, we suggest plant milk, sugar-free flavorings, agave nectar, and grinding your own coffee at home (for the added anti-oxidant benefits). We promised to share some health-minded drink recipes throughout this week, so here we are to deliver with an almond-hazelnut coffee drink recipe you’re sure to love.
Today’s recipe uses organic blue agave to achieve its sweet (and healthy) taste. If you’ve never had blue agave before, we ask you to give it a try – even if you aren’t looking to lose weight or become healthier. (If you don’t like it, we promise to make things right.)
Blue agave nectar is taken from the blue agave plant, which is extremely sweet. Natives of America’s southwest region and Mexico have been using the agave plant’s powerful sweetening properties for centuries, but only in the last few decades has the nectar come into more mainstream use.
Almond Hazelnut Coffee Drink Recipe
- ½ tablespoon Amoretti Organolicious Almond Flavored Blue Agave Nectar
- ½ tablespoon Amoretti Organolicious Hazelnut Flavored Blue Agave Nectar
- 8 ounces coffee
- 4 ounces steamed plant milk
This almond hazelnut coffee is a breeze to make. All you need to do is combine your ingredients, and enjoy. One minor suggestion – hold back the foam with a spoon as you pour your almond/soy milk. This will allow for the best consistency. Then, when you’re finished making the drink, you can add a dollop of foam on top instead of whipped cream.
Please note that this drink recipe is not entirely sugar-free. One serving of our blue agave nectars contains 3 grams of sugar. However, when you compare it against other sugary drink syrups, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything with less sugar (unless you go with one of our sugar free flavorings, of course!).
