Are you someone who can’t get going in the morning without a cup of java?
Research shows that coffee not only helps you wake up and clear your head when you are feeling lethargic, but it also jumpstarts your metabolism and burns fat.
The supercharging force behind coffee is, of course, caffeine, which increases activity in your brain and nervous system.
Because caffeine crosses the blood-brain barrier, it can make you feel mentally alert and physically energized.
In today’s post, we will cover 9 healthy coffee recipes that will supercharge your day.

1. Turmeric Golden Latte Coffee Recipe
A cup of coffee enriched with turmeric golden milk is one of the simplest ways to beat stress and supercharge your day.
Turmeric golden milk is loaded with antioxidants, reduces inflammation, and may improve memory function.
- Almond butter
- Manuka honey
- Sea salt
- 2 fluid ounces of strong brew coffee
Start by peeling and chopping some fresh turmeric. If you don’t have fresh turmeric, you can use powder turmeric instead.
Put the peeled turmeric into a blender. Then, add a teaspoon of almond butter, a teaspoon of Manuka honey, a pinch of cinnamon, a pinch of sea salt, and water.
Instead of almond butter, you could just use regular almond milk. Blend the ingredients until smooth.
Pour the latte into a pot to heat up on the stovetop for a few minutes. Remove the pot from heat and blend until frothy.
Next, prepare strong brewed coffee. You can use a Bodum French press or an espresso machine to make a cup of strong brewed coffee.
You can find a detailed guide on how to use a Bodum French press at Caffe Streets.
Pour 1 fluid ounce of coffee into a serving cup and then add the turmeric latte. Pour the turmeric latte at the center and finish up with a heart-shaped dot.
2. Protein Coffee (Proffee) Recipe
You can supercharge your coffee by adding protein in the form of dry powder or a creamy mix. Protein is effective at reducing hunger and promoting a feeling of fullness.
- 1/2 cup of coffee
- 1/2 cup of almond milk
- 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
- Some ice cubes
First off, prepare your strong brewed coffee like you normally would. You can use a drip coffee maker, an espresso machine, or a simple French press.
If brewing coffee is a lot of work for you, you can use instant coffee.
We will be using the Magic Bullet blender for this recipe. Start by adding the almond milk to your Magic Bullet cup.
Then add your 1/2 cup of strong brewed coffee. 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder, and some ice cubes.
Almond milk is a better option than regular milk because it is low in calories, naturally lactose-free, and vegan.
Close the lid of the cup and blend the ingredients on your Magic Bullet. Have a glass to kickstart your morning before heading out.
3. Iced Coffee Recipe
A cup of iced coffee is a great way to boost your metabolism. To add, iced coffee gives you energy when depressed and lifts your mood.
- 6 fluid ounces of cold brew
- 2 fluid ounces of almond milk
- Some ice cubes
- Vanilla extract
Start by grinding your dark roast coffee beans. We recommend you use a burr coffee grinder. You need a medium to coarse grind and not too finely ground.
All you have to do next to prepare a cold brew is combine the coffee grounds and water.
The ideal grounds to water ratio is 1:4, which translates to 1½ cups of medium to coarse grounds and 6 cups of clean water.
Mix the grounds and water in a jar, cover it with clingfilm, and let the coffee brew overnight. Strain the brewed coffee to separate the grinds from the brew.
You can use a fine-mesh sieve with a paper filter or a nut milk bag to strain the grinds.
Add your cold brew, almond milk, ice cubes, and vanilla extract or maple syrup to a serving glass and enjoy your drink.
4. Butter Coffee Recipe
Butter coffee provides long-lasting, steady energy that will keep you supercharged during the day. It is also rich in MCTs, which promote fullness and weight loss.
- 8 fluid ounces of strong coffee brew
- 1 tablespoon of grass-fed butter
- 1 tablespoon of MCT oil
Start by preparing a strong brew of coffee. Then add 8 fluid ounces of your strong brew to a blender followed by 1 tablespoon of grass-fed butter, and 1 tablespoon of MCT oil or coconut oil.
Turn on your blender and start blending. At first, you are going to see the ingredients mixing.
After about 30 seconds, you will see a froth forming on top of the butter coffee. Stop blending and serve in a coffee cup.
5. Cinnamon Mocha Coffee Recipe
Cinnamon is packed with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. It makes you feel fuller for longer and helps lower blood sugar levels.
- 2 fluid ounces of espresso
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons of drinking chocolate
Start by measuring 2 teaspoons of drinking chocolate powder into a coffee cup. Add 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and stir to mix.
Next, prepare your 2 fluid ounces of espresso or strong brew of coffee. If you don’t have an espresso machine at home, you can use a stovetop espresso pot.
Then add your espresso to the mixture of chocolate and cinnamon. Gently stir the ingredients to mix.
Pour the milk into a steaming pitcher and steam it until it has a latte-style texture. Gently pour the milk into the mixture of coffee, cinnamon, and chocolate. Sprinkle some chocolate powder on top and serve.
6. Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe
A pumpkin spice latte can be a good source of antioxidants, protein, vitamin D, and calcium that will supercharge your day.
- 1/2 cup of almond milk
- 1/2 cup of brewed coffee
- 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tablespoon of pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup
In a saucepan, add 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup, 1/2 cup of brewed coffee (you can use espresso or any other coffee extraction method), 1 tablespoon of pumpkin puree, and 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.
Use a hand mixer to whisk the ingredients. Then place the saucepan over medium-high heat to simmer. You can adjust the taste and flavor by adding more coffee, maple syrup, or spice.
Serve the drink hot and garnish it with your favorite toppings, such as delicious whipped cream and chocolate powder.
7. Dalgona Coffee Recipe
This unique coffee recipe can boost your energy levels, make you smarter, and make you feel less tired. A cup of dalgona coffee can also improve liver health and reduce the risk of diabetes.
- 3/4 glass of milk

- Ice cubes
In a glass bowl, pour 2 tablespoons of instant coffee, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 2 tablespoons of hot water. Use an electric mixer to whisk the three ingredients until they form a creamy solution.
If you don’t have an electric mixer, you can use a whisk.
Take a 6-ounce glass and drop in some ice cubes. Fill the glass with almond milk 3/4 full. Top the iced milk with the whipped coffee you prepared earlier.
Fill the remaining portion of the glass with whipped coffee until full and serve.
8. Coconut Mocha Coffee Recipe
A cup of coconut mocha can help supercharge your day by speeding up your metabolism, improving energy levels, and keeping your bowels regular.
- 4 teaspoons of ground coffee
- 3 fluid ounces of coconut milk
- 4 fluid ounces of hot water
