How many of us feel the need for that daily morning caffeine hit? Apparently, most of us. Studies show that 64% of Americans aged 18 or over drink coffee daily to get their caffeine fix. 

While coffee offers a sometimes much-needed energy, it's not always the best thing for our bodies. Too much can also cause high blood pressure, digestion problems, stomach irritation and mineral deficiency.

We've put together a list of perfect coffee-free drinks to kick start your day and give you that morning energy boost.

Green Juice

Vegetables are a great source of nutrients and antioxidants, helping to naturally boost your energy levels. Other than providing energy, green juices or smoothies can help in eliminating toxins from your body and reducing bad cholesterol.

Protein Smoothies

Protein is the easiest way to provide natural energy to your body. It increases alertness and concentration while promoting healthy brain function, aiding in heart health, increasing longevity, and maintaining strong bones.

Try this Banana Protein Smoothie for a great morning pre-workout:
1 Large Banana, Peeled and Sliced
½ Cup Almond Milk
½ Cup Greek Yogurt
2 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
Using a blender, blend until smooth. Pour into your favorite glass and enjoy!

Pomegranate Juice

While it is heavy on the sugar, pomegranate juice is packed with energizers and antioxidants to help start your day. Additionally, pomegranate juice can help to prevent heart disease and cancer and aides in digestion and blood pressure control. Just make sure to get a bottle without added sugars.

Coconut Water

Although coconut water doesn’t provide energy in the same way that coffee does, it provides the tools you need to create that energy. Coconut water contains just as much potassium as a banana, providing fuel for those morning workouts, and electrolytes to wake up your muscles. Coconut water can help to improve your digestive and urinary systems, boosting your immune system, and improve blood circulation and pressure.

Matcha Green Tea

For those you can't say no to caffeine altogether, matcha is the perfect alternative to coffee. It has half the caffeine of a cup of black coffee and none of the side effects. Matcha also provides antioxidants, can lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and aids in cognitive function.

Try this Iced Matcha Latte the next time you're feeling groggy:
1 Cup Milk
1.5 tsp Matcha
1 tsp Honey
Put milk, matcha, and honey in a blender and mix until there’s no separation. Fill a cup half way with ice and pour the mix over it.
