Kristina’s Raw Coffee Alternative

FullyRaw Kristina shares this extremely helpful recipe for those coffee lovers that are looking to cut out the caffeine to enjoy a more balanced energy level without the crashes or “lows”. Be aware that serious addicts will likely experience some withdrawal or detox symptoms such as headache and/or lethargy. But you will definitely recover, and you will feel lighter, fresher, and more liberated.

Tools needed:

  • Breville juicer
  • Vitamix or Blendtec blender
  • Coffee cup(s)

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 cups of coconut water
  • 5-10 pitted dates
  • ¼ cup carob powder
  • a few fresh peppermint leaves
  • a small vanilla bean or a few drops of vanilla extract (without alcohol)
  • a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons of raw cacao
  • fresh almond milk (make your own with the following instructions)

Almond milk creamer:

Run 1 ½ cups of soaked raw almonds through a slow juicer (or blend with a Vitamix and strain with an almond milk bag). Run through juicer with water or if you want it to be sweeter, use coconut water instead.
