Therefor, I don't drink/eat dairy products.
I also have a daughter who is super sensitive to caffeine.
So, I don't drink it.
It's a hard life.
I won't lie, I don't really have caffeine cravings but when I did quit I had major withdrawals. I really did hate giving up milk & yogurt though.
I have had to become creative since there is only so much water and soy milk I can drink! Here are some of my favorite dairy-free and caffeine free drinks that I love!
(NOTE: Some have recipes, others don't... for obvious reasons. Also, almond milk can be used instead of soy - I just like soy better! ;)
Italian Cream Soda
1/2 cup Club Soda
3 TBSP Torani Syrup (I use vanilla!)
1TBSP Soy Milk
Mix together and enjoy!
Godiva Dark Hot Chocolate
I use our amazing milk frother to make this extra yummy! You can heat the milk in the microwave too and it's also amazing!
Decaf Carmel Macchiato
1 shot decaf espresso
Steam/froth your milk, pour espresso on top, and drizzle caramel on top!
Hot Apple Cider
Bored? Add some cranberry juice or fresh blueberries!
Sometimes I just want a milk shake-esk drink and this is my go too. Again, I use soy milk because I love it, but almond works well too! I like chocolate or vanilla ;)
Sweet Tea (decaf of course!)
Check out my Southern Style Tea Recipe here!
I love smoothies! My favorite involves strawberries, blackberries, mango, and blueberries! Trader Joe's has a great frozen fruit selection. Another favorite is banana, chocolate protein powder, and peanut butter!
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup kiwi (chopped peeled)
1/2 cup fresh pineapple (chopped)
1/2 cup strawberries (sliced fresh, or fresh raspberries)
1 cup ginger ale (chilled)
1/2 cup pineapple juice (chilled unsweetened)
1/2 cup lemonade (chilled)
In four tall glasses, layer blueberries, kiwi, pineapple and strawberries. In a 2-cup glass measure, mix remaining ingredients; pour over fruit. Serve immediately! Perfect for summertime!
Last but not least -
I love me a good glass of wine and adding fresh fruit to it just makes it even more amazing!
