In this video I talk about a healthy coffee alternative that I found on Amazon called Macaccino. Instead of coffee beans Macaccino uses the very alkalizing and healthy maca root to start your day!
Macaccino was created by the company called SOL (Science of Living Foods) based in California, and it comes in three different flavours. I tried out their Original Mocha line that consists of maca root, cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and mesquite powder.
How Does It Taste?
I was actually shocked to discover that this tastes like coffee! It reminded me of a light roast, milder version of coffee without the astringent bitter taste that I often had to water down with creamer.
How Do You Prepare It?
It’s pretty simple to make, all you do is boil 10oz of water, whisk in a teaspoon of the Macaccino powder, add your creamer and voila! Instant “coffee”. You can also use it to make an iced Macaccino type of smoothie with it too, similar to iced coffee. My GOD does it ever taste good!
Overall, I was really happy with this coffee substitute, and in my opinion it tastes better than coffee and because of the maca root and cocoa in it you get a boost and feel energized throughout the day.
