Seven Tasty Coffee Drinks Without The Coffee Taste

I'm pretty sure my body is 90% coffee and soon, yours will be too.

Though I don’t understand it, there are a lot of people who don’t like coffee. Many people still want to have the coffee to wake them up, learn to like coffee, or want to hop on the bandwagon of enjoying a coffee treat from Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts, or Wawa (the overall best). So, here’s a list of seven drinks that include coffee, but don’t taste like it, to help you transition from a non-coffee drinker to an active one.


1. Coolattas from Dunkin Donuts

A Coolatta is basically a frozen flavored drink. Most of them contain coffee, so getting that boost of caffeine without the coffee taste is easy with this treat. It comes in caramel, vanilla bean, mocha, Oreo, and more.

2. Any kind of Mocha Coffee (or caffe mocha)

A mocha coffee tastes like subtly coffee flavored hot chocolate. One of my favorite mocha drinks around the holidays is a peppermint mocha, because it tastes like a chocolate dipped candy cane, which is perfect to get anyone (even a Jewish girl like me) into the Christmas spirit. If you like hot chocolate, a mocha is a good way to transition into drinking regular coffee.

3. Vanilla Latte

A vanilla latte is one of my personal favorites. They can come hot or iced, and though they contain a good amount of coffee, it tastes like you dipped a sugar cookie into coffee.

4. Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha

After going to Starbucks with a friend, she forced me to try this when she ordered it, and it was fabulous. She described it to me as a drink for people who don’t like rich chocolate. It’s a really creamy drink that tastes kind of like white hot chocolate.

5.Starbucks Frappuccino

Don’t even get me started on Frapps. The amount of flavors they have is amazing, and it’s basically one of the best beverages ever. My favorite is the double chocolate chip, because you get a rich chocolate flavor with crunchy chocolate chips inside. SO good. They also have caramel, vanilla, strawberry, cinnamon, green tea, and pumpkin spice and toasted graham cracker during the fall season (just to list a few).

6. Chai Latte

A chai latte tastes like tea with milk, infused with spices. It is definitely something people either love or hate, but if you like that spiced flavor, I would recommend it.

7. Caramel Macchiato

I have never tried one of these, but people LOVE them (not to mention the drink is beautiful). In simple terms, it is steamed milk topped with foam, topped with espresso to create a luscious, caramel, layered coffee drink.

So to those crazy people out there who don't enjoy a nice cup of coffee in the morning, or a mid-day iced coffee in the summer, try these drinks and soon you'll wake up craving a cup of coffee like me.

My ability to successfully function in the morning would not occur without my favorite drink, a cup of black hazelnut or green mountain's breakfast blend coffee. My family and I are huge coffee drinkers, so you could say my addiction to coffee started at a fairly young age. Drinking my cup of coffee every morning, and sometimes even throughout the day has made me wonder what and if this drink I have learned to love is actually healthy and beneficial to me in any way. So I did some digging to find out some of the benefits coffee has to offer.

1. It boosts memory

Memory is a funny thing to think about. Our memories based off of school information or everyday life can be more difficult to recall based on the time of day. So, the 8 a.m. classes college students think they can take successfully turn south. They have a difficult time paying attention due to being tired. Specifically, drinking coffee would allow a student ot not only function better for early morning classes, but boost their memory during non-optimal times of the day for people.

2. Coffee beans have great antioxidant properties

Coffee Beans have antioxidant properties which reduce oxidative stress processes occurring within our cells and body that often cause mutations to occur, leading to the development of cancer. Light roasted coffee beans tend to have a higher concentration of antioxidants compared to dark roasted coffee bean levels. Having a boost of antioxidant levels in the human body is beneficial for many reasons.

3. It protects your body

The human body can be protected from certain diseases that affect the body from consuming a moderate amount of coffee. Neuromuscular Diseases, such as Parkinson disease were diminished in fellow coffee drinkers, as well as a decrease in cardiovascular disease occurring in those who drank a moderate amount of coffee. This is due to the antioxidant and phytochemicals found in coffee that decreases inflammation within the body.

4. It protects your mind

The human mind can be protected from certain diseases as well by consuming a moderate amount of coffee. One example is the decreased risk of Alzheimer's occurring in a person's lifetime. A study done a couple of years ago concluded that those who drank coffee on a daily basis compared to those who did not were found to be less likely to have Alzheimer's by 60%
