Healthier ways to consume coffee with fresh cream
• You can try decaffeinated coffee to keep your glucose levels in check.
• Try to avoid adding jaggery to your coffee. Instead, you can add stevia or erythritol to get the sweetness to your coffee.
• Consider having black coffee or coffee with cream without jaggery or cappuccino with almond milk instead.
• You may opt for nut or plant-based milk like almond or soya milk instead of dairy-based milk.
• Try caffeine-free beverages like chamomile tea and herbal teas as a replacement.
