National Coffee Day is right around the corner—on September 29th to be exact—and we want to help you celebrate one of our favorite holidays!

As the world’s most popular beverage, coffee plays a huge role in most American lives. Collectively, Americans consume around 400 million cups of coffee per day! From lattes to espresso smoothies, and with so many flavors and preparation methods, there is no shortage of ways to enjoy this revitalizing drink.

Keep reading to see why we take our coffee so seriously and try our delicious coffee protein smoothies!

Is Coffee Healthy?

We know what it does for our moods, but is coffee healthy in general?

In addition to coffee being a comforting way to start your morning, the satisfying drink also offers some fantastic health benefits. As more research comes to light, the list of reasons why coffee is so great continues to grow.

Here are just a few reasons why you should reach for healthy coffee drinks:

Coffee for Your Heart

Yes, consuming moderate amounts of coffee can make you happy, but did you know it also makes your heart happy? Drinking a few cups a day can potentially help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. Not only that, but your daily cup of coffee may also provide other heart-related benefits.

Coffee and Your Brain

It doesn’t end there; coffee has more than one superpower. Some research suggests that coffee can help keep your brain functioning the way it is supposed to.

Coffee for Energy and Physical Performance

It’s no secret that everyone’s favorite perk of coffee is its ability to get you going. Whether it’s to get you out of bed or get you through the afternoon slump, coffee provides its signature boost of energy when you need it most.

By affecting the neurotransmitters in your brain, the caffeine in coffee gives you an added boost when you feel sluggish. One study even suggests that coffee can help improve physical performance by decreasing fatigue and helping you finish stronger than you could on your own.

Feel Energized with Smoothie King

Although we love our morning cups of joe, it’s easy to forget that not all energy is created equal. The high amounts of sugars and creams people or coffee shops mix into daily cups can quickly overshadow coffee’s benefits.

To reap the benefits, ensure your favorite cup of coffee doesn’t contain too many added sugars. Otherwise, those added sugars will give you a small energy spike and drop to even lower than before.

The good news is that you can still use coffee as a healthy energy source while pleasing your taste buds with familiar flavors. We know that starting your day or workout on the right foot is essential.

That’s why we’re committed to healthy energy options.

With our Feel Energized Blends, you can rest assured knowing no smoothie contains artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Simply add espresso or cold brew (your choice) to any of our coffee protein smoothies for a healthy, satisfying energy kick. Instead of your usual frappe, try smoothies with coffee, like our Vegan Coffee Mocha, which acts as a meal replacement and offers the healthy benefits of coffee. Crafted with Sunwarrior® organic plant-based protein, banana, dates, Califia Farms® Oat Milk, 100% cocoa, and your choice of cold brew or espresso, this is sure to be your new go-to order.
