If you've been trying to give up coffee or simply trying to switch up your morning drink routine here are a few new drinks to try that taste much better than a freshly boiled cup of grass clippings. These guys have superpowers that will give you an energy boost without the mega caffeine overload.

1. Turmeric Coconut Latte

Turmeric is all the rage right now, and so it should be because there really isn't anything that can compare to the spice's superior inflammation-reducing and antioxidant properties. Since ditching coffee way back in January, I've fallen in love with making these turmeric lattes at home.


 2. Matcha Latte

There is so matcha I can say about the benefits of Matcha. Matcha is rich in antioxidants called catechin polyphenols which have some serious street cred for their links to health benefits like decreasing cancer risk, reducing cholesterol and blood pressure and that kind of stuff. Love this recipe by fashion blogger Peace Love Shea.

3. Vanilla Chai Dandelion Latte

Love a good chai latte made with real loose leaf tea, not he sugar loaded powder variety. If you're fond of the aromatic spice blend too then why not make with dandelion. The fluffy weed is renowned for detoxifying the liver, kidneys, skin and digestive system. It will also add vitamins A, C and D as well as zinc, iron, magnesium and potassium to your cup. Try out this recipe by health blogger Don't Mess With Mama.

4. Vanilla Rooibos Latte

Red rooibos tea traditionally tastes like black tea. Adding a touch of milk, vanilla and cinnamon on top really hits the sweet spot. Blogger House Full of Jays nailed it with this recipe which takes next to no time to prepare.

5. Yerba Mate Chai

Yer what? This drink is not for the feint hearted, or anyone wanting to ditche caffeine all togher because the South American yerba mate plant has about 80 mg of caffeine as opposed to 100-200 mg in coffee. Which is enough to give you a buzz, without the overbearing buzz and dreaded withdrawl that coffee can leave. Check out this recipe from In Sonnet’s Kitchen that blends aromatic chai spices and almond milk for a seriously good cup.

There's a little saying I like to go by, if you can't tone it, tan it! I won't lie, I'm quite partial to sporting a year round tan. There is something about having that sun-kissed glow that makes you feel and look a little leaner, and dare I say a tad sexier. The good news is that with all the amazing advancements in natural skin care products, you can get that glow without worrying about nasty toxins, sun damaged skin or looking like an Oompa Loompa. Here is my pick of the best natural tanning essentials to get your through this winter and beyond!
