6 Best Healthy & Energizing Alternatives to Coffee

1. Mushroom “Coffee”

For a low-caffeine coffee alternative filled with far more health benefits, consider sipping on coffee brewed with dried mushrooms. Four Sigmatic brews a potent blend of organic dark roast coffee and certified organic Lion’s Mane and Chaga mushrooms. This blend is designed to boost productivity while supporting your immune function, enhancing the benefits of your regular cup without even a hint of mushroom taste.

Best of all, each cup contains just 75 mg of caffeine, or about a third of the amount in a regular serving of coffee. Don’t want to mess with a coffee pot? The company also offers a line of instant coffee drinks that can be brewed in seconds.

2. Kombucha Tea

This ancient Chinese “elixir of life” can be made for pennies at home, and its fermented, fizzy texture makes it an excellent alternative to standard soft drinks. Best of all, the brew is considered by many to treat memory loss, help with high blood pressure, and even regulate the digestive system.

Kombucha is made with just three ingredients: black tea, sugar, and a collection of yeast called a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast). Every batch of kombucha creates a brand new SCOBY, so you can source one from a brewing friend or buy one to begin the process.

Read this post to learn more about the health benefits of kombucha and how you can make your own. And don’t let the cup of sugar per batch scare you away; most of the sweetener is consumed by the bacteria long before you take a sip.

3. Dandelion Tea

Your weedy lawn might hold the secret for brewing a quality coffee alternative. Dandelion tea is full flavored and highly nutritious, and you can easily harvest your own from the plants in your yard, so long as you ensure they’ve never been contaminated with chemical pesticides or fertilizers. If you can’t find dandelions or don’t want to spend time harvesting them, you can purchase ready-made dandelion root tea.

4. Yerba Mate

If you can’t bear to start your day without a cup of caffeine, yerba mate tea is a stellar alternative to standard coffee. Providing you with 85 mg of caffeine per serving, yerba mate packs in far more nutrients and won’t cause you to crash once the effects wear off. Yerba mate comes from a holly tree variety in the Amazon rainforest, and the taste is similar to green tea. It’s equally tasty brewed both hot or cold.

Try this Guayaki Organic Yerba Mate for the highest quality tea.


5. Teeccino

For those struggling to overcome an extreme coffee addiction, teeccino offers an ideal alternative. Though technically an herbal tea, teechino provides a surprisingly similar taste and aroma to standard coffee without any caffeine. The brew contains plenty of prebiotics and soluble fiber through carob and chicory root, ensuring that it can support the health of your gut microbes. You can brew ground teeccino in a French press or buy it in teabags.

6. Wheatgrass Juice

If you’re looking to take a liquid shot of energy that isn’t espresso, consider sipping on wheatgrass juice instead. A single serving contains almost everything BUT caffeine, including 17 types of amino acids, ample amounts of vitamins A, B, C, E, K, and dozens of minerals.
