It's wintertime, and there's nothing better than waking up to a warm cup of ... well, something. So if you're not a coffee drinker -- or are trying to wean off caffeine -- here are 10 alternatives to a hot cup of Joe in the morning.
Grain beverages are made from barley, rye, chicory, malted barely, molasses and sometimes beet root. If you're trying to break the coffee habit but don't like tea, the unique taste of grain beverages can help you retain your morning ritual while eliminating the caffeine.
Similar to roasted grain beverages, herbal coffee uses a variety of herbs, ranging from dandelion roots to sassafras. Often these herbs will be roasted and mixed to create a balanced flavor that resembles that of coffee.
Ginger, peppermint, chamomile, rooibos, orange spice, cinnamon -- these are just a few of the flavorful herbal teas you can drink in place of coffee. Herbal tea is a great alternative to coffee because it offers a wide variety of flavors and aromas while almost always being caffeine-free.
