Start the morning out right with not only a must-have cup of coffee, but a clean and healthy version at that.

1. Clean Eating Cold Brew Coffee
Busy mamas will love this make ahead cold brew coffee that’s best prepped the night before. Mix your grounds and water in an airtight jar or container, then leave in the fridge overnight. In the morning, simply pour over a sieve into your mug, add ice and creamer (if you’re like me, and like a little coffee with your creamer) and enjoy. No slumping by the coffee pot waiting for it to percolate! This is also a perfect brew for those hot summers.

2. Bulletproof Coffee
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you know how popular bullet proof coffee is! Made with coffee, butter and MCT (think: coconut) oil, this recipe is both low carb and Keto-friendly. The ingredients serve an actual purpose (besides just jump starting your day), like increasing mental clarity and staving off hunger. We’ve got a great recipe right here at Life as Mama!
3. Healthy Coffee Smoothie
If you prefer the chilly feel of a smoothie in the morning, a healthy coffee smoothie is just the ticket. Instead of loading up on creamer or tons of sugar, consider adding chilled coffee to a blender with banana, yogurt, honey and some cinnamon. You’ll get all the caffeine jolt, along with at least one serving of fruit! We found a quick and easy coffee smoothie recipe over at SimplyElliott.com.
4. Iced Coffee Mocha
Skip the pricey coffee shop version, and make your own iced mocha with this healthy coffee recipe. Made with just four ingredients- coffee, unsweetened cocoa powder, milk and honey, you can feel confident your coffee is just the right amount of sweet, without being sugar-laden.

5. Gut-Healing Cinnamon Coconut Latte
Kick your bulletproof coffee up a notch with this gut-healing cinnamon coconut latte version. Made with all the ingredients of your fav bullet proof blend, plus other gut-healthy goodies like peptides, cinnamon and coconut milk, you’ll feel like you’re enjoying a pricey and fancy latte at the coffee shop instead of a homemade coffee that’s good for you.

6. Cashew Coffee
Non-dairy, healthy fat coffee? Sign me up! This cashew coffee is equal parts healthy and delicious, and may make you rethink coffee forever. Made extra creamy by the pureed cashews, with a hint of sweet and salty thanks to the honey and sea salt, I think coffee has a new best friend and it’s not creamer.
