Fake Coffee Cold Brew with Maple + Pink Himalayan Salt
Fake Coffee, an herbal blend of organic cacao, chicory, dandelion root and cinnamon.
I get into weird morning drink routines.
For months at a time I’ll drink only cold brew.
And then I’ll be off coffee and drink strictly earl grey.
Then I’ll move to green smoothies with matcha.
And then back to cold brew.
And so on.
Right now though, I’m really into this Fake Coffee cold brew with a touch of maple syrup and pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt.
Fake Coffee is an herbaceous coffee alternative from Big Heart Tea Co. It looks like a cup of coffee and feels like a cup of coffee and it kind of tastes like one too. The earthy blend of organic raw cacao, chicory, dandelion root and cinnamon brings a good jolt. Because raw cacao babes – it’s no joke.
To start I make a Fake Coffee cold brew. Did you know that you can cold brew tea? Well you totally can. You combine tea with cold water in a jar. And you shake it. And then you let them commingle with one another for a few hours. And then you strain the tea. That’s basically it, but for a step-by-step illustration here is Big Heart Tea’s complete How To Cold Brew Tea guide.
The maple syrup compliments the blend’s deepness and complexity. And the pink Himalayan salt rounds all the flavors out while supplying additional health benefits like promoting a healthy pH balance, stabilizing blood sugar levels, preventing muscle cramps and providing your body with an abundance of minerals that regular table salt cannot provide you. I don’t wanna tell you what to do but if you haven’t already started to integrate pink Himalayan salt into your life you probably should.
- Cold brew the Fake Coffee according to these how to cold brew tea instructions.
- Combine the Fake Coffee cold brew with the milk, maple syrup, pink Himalayan salt and ice in a jar with a lid and shake until well-combined and frothy. Pour into into a glass and drink immediately.
