Warm up the coldest mornings with this Spiced Coffee
Fall season is a romantic one, but it can be harder to wake up in the morning, especially as temperatures continue to drop. There are some simple and delicious ways to combat the morning frost and help the body warm up naturally while nourishing it with natural tools to cope with the day’s demands. One of our favorite recipes is this delicious autumnal masala latte, a type of spiced coffee. Masala is a term from Indian cuisine that refers to a blend of spices, like the ones we use in Super Slim Café that provide necessary support. In addition, this coffee includes a seasonal flavor favorite: pumpkin! This gives the coffee a unique twist, filling you with energy and vitality.
Let's get to work!
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/3 cup unsalted cooked pumpkin or 1 tablespoon of unsweetened pumpkin puree
- 1 clove or a pinch of clove powder
- 1 serving of Super Slim Café
- A pinch of nutmeg powder
- A pinch of cinnamon powder (to sprinkle on top)
- Vanilla extract
- Stevia or honey
Add the cold milk and pumpkin to a blender. Add in the coffee and powdered ingredients. Blend very well. In a small pot, boil the water. If using whole cloves, add them now and allow to boil for a few minutes. Turn off the head before adding the milk mixture and vanilla. Let it rest for a few minutes before serving warm in a mug. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top and add stevia or a little honey for a sweet touch. Enjoy.
Why is it worth a try?
- Super Slim Café contains thermogenics, substances that heat up or ignite the body, such as caffeine, green tea (1) and spices like turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and black pepper. We also added cloves and nutmeg to our recipe. All these products not only produce heat within the body, but also help activate metabolism and fat burning, when part of a comprehensive program like Entalla which is based on changing habits. (2)
- Cinnamon is one of the most used spices. For centuries, Ayurvedic medicine has supported its use for health reasons, especially related to blood circulation and the digestive system. Although previous studies indicated contradictory results of the effect on body weight, a systematic review and meta-analysis focusing on the effects of cinnamon intake on body weight, body mass index, waist circumference, and fat mass in adults showed positive results. Cinnamon can positively affect obesity. (3)
- Pumpkin, aside from being the flavor of the season, is an excellent food option year-round. Several studies show it is a good food source due to its high nutrient content in its pulp, peel and, especially, seeds. (4)
Do you dare to prepare your own seasonal spiced coffee? Avoid falling into sugary traps and opt for this beverage instead. Remember, take it one cup at a time and day by day to achieve those inner and outer changes you long for. The cold doesn’t bother us anyway!
Let's be healthier together.
