Waking up in the morning can be a really painful.

These recipes were all tested and tasted by me, and I highly recommend each of them.

They will help you to have a productive morning.

Please take care of yourself and try new recipes with precaution. This post is not an expert advice!

Best morning teas, and juices

healthy breakfast teas for mornings

Warm Water with Lemon

Lemon is a rich source of vitamin C so helps your body’s immune system. It also helps to maintain the pH balance of the body. With its powerful antibacterial properties, it also fights infections, not to mention that lemon makes your skin glow!

Ginger tea

Are you feeling tired in the mornings? Is it hard to get out of bed? Try a hot ginger tea that increases focus and concentration by stimulating your brain.

Turmeric Tea

It fights depression as it influences the neurotransmitters which are responsible for creating a good mood.

Rooibos tea

Rooibos tea is naturally sweet so not sweetener is needed. It reduces anxiety and stress, elevates your mood.

Tomato juice

Tomatoes are 95 % water but also has a lot of super antioxidant properties, such a lycopene that may reduce inflammation and also lowers the risk of heart diseases.

It also contains Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5 and B6, and minerals like magnesium, iron and phosphorous.

Pomegranate Juice

It has a strange taste, I needed some time to get used to it. It is savory and bitter in the same time.

It has many healing properties, packed with load of vitamins and minerals.

Read the label before buying its juice as many of them have added sugar in them.

Coconut water

Coconut water has an abundance of electrolytes and minerals, making it the best alternative to energy and sports drinks. It gives you energy without added fats and sugars.

Best morning lattes without coffee

Matcha Latte

Matcha is green tea on steroids: it has more than 100 times more antioxidants than regular green tea. Also, while the caffeine in coffee spikes you up quickly, matcha tea’s caffeine content is not as high. Also, the additional ingredients also prevent caffeine to rush in your system. It means you will experience midday crash and fatigue much less.

Making a matcha tea is a great calming, wake-you-up morning ritual.

Put 2 teaspoons of green tea matcha latte into cup. Pour 2 ounces boiling water slowly and stir mixture well. Heat 4 ounces milk or half-and-half on the stove or in a milk frother until thick. Add milk to matcha. If needed, add honey or sugar for a sweeter taste.

Lavender Latte

Combine 1 cup water, 1 cup honey, and 1 or 2 tbs fresh lavender in a pot over medium high heat.

Bring to a boil for 2 minutes.

Reduce to low flame and cook until honey dissolves.

Strain out lavender, allow liquid to cool and then transfer to a jar.

Pour hot, black tea into a cup.

Add 2 to 3 tablespoons lavender syrup into the tea.

Add 1/2 cup heavy cream into a blender and whir for 10 to 15 seconds until frothy.

Serve it hot.

Turmeric milk

Turmeric has some very powerful, anti-inflammatory antioxidant properties.


  • 1 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/3 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash cayenne pepper
  • dash black pepper
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon maple syrup or coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on medium for less than 5 seconds.

Heat the mixture for 2 to 4 minutes over medium heat.

Drink and enjoy!

Chai Tea Latte

Add 1 cup water and 1-2 tbs leafy chai tea to a pot and bring to a boil.

Turn down the heat and let it simmer for about 15 minutes.

Remove from the heat and pour 1/2 cup (almond) milk in the pot.

Let it sit for two minutes.

Strain the mixture and pour into a mug.

Add cane sugar and some cinnamon to taste.
