International Coffee Day is an occasion used to celebrate coffee as a beverage. Wait a minute… wouldn’t that be everyday? Coffee is the most consumed beverage worldwide, with over 2.25 billion cups being consumed daily. With that much consumption, you would assume that coffee drinkers love and obsession for their morning cup is a daily celebration, no?
Apparently, that’s not enough love for the little bean, and so a whole day has been dedicated to it.
For those who cannot drink coffee (whether it’s a caffeine intolerance, a coffee allergy, or suffering from a range of symptoms that can occur from drinking coffee) international coffee day could feel a little like pouring lemon juice on a wound: the love and desire for coffee is still there, but the break-up is still raw. What is one to do?
Luckily, ex-coffee drinkers can now partake in the festivities once more, with Nummy Creations.
Nummy Creations is a caffeine-free instant coffee alternative made from dandelion root, chicory root, barley and rye extracts. Due to its instant format, it’s super quick and easy to make, and allows for optimal versatility: coffee, latte, espresso, iced drinks, Frappuccino – you can even bake with it and make ice cream!
The best part? Nummy Creations ACTUALLY tastes like coffee (not dirt or mushrooms!) No joke. You can fulfill the coffee craving without all the negative effects of caffeine!
Oh yea, Nummy also comes in 5 delicious flavors: Original, Vanilla, Caramel, Pumpkin Spice and Chocolate-Mint. There's a taste for every bud.
Why drink Nummy?
For one, Nummy actually tastes like coffee. you get the full placebo effect of drinking a coffee, without the coffee.
Secondly, Nummy is made from really nutritious ingredients. Let's do a quick breakdown of each one.
Dandelions are one of the most misunderstood and hated plants for ruining the "perfect lawn". Did you know those ugly yellow weeds are chock full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that help the body function and heal? It's also full of inulin- a soluble fiber that supports the growth of healthy bacteria in your gut - which means lower blood sugar levels and better poops. Woohoo!
This blue flowered plant is dandelion's hot cousin. Chicory root has a similar taste and color to coffee, but without the caffeine or negative health effects. Just like dandelion, it's also a good source of inulin fiber, which we know supports a healthy gut flora. High five to the dandelion family!
Barley Malt Extract
Malt extract is making a comeback. This trending food contains protein, fiber, potassium, folate, iron, and B vitamins, which have been shown to lower cholesterol and decrease the risk of heart disease. It's also a good source of polyphenols (poly-whah?) a powerful antioxidant that's anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial, to name a few.
Rye ranks high on the popularity list and is considered a superior grain due to its nutritional profile. High in fiber, magnesium, B-vitamins and antioxidants, it's earned a reputation for aiding weight loss and lowering the insulin response, helping to balance blood sugar levels.
Not sure what flavor you would like? Grab a sample pack! You can try all the flavors before buying a big bag.
So go on, grab some Nummy and make your "coffee" drink the way you always used to enjoy it. It's time to raise your mug and cheers with all the ex-coffee drinkers on International (Non) Coffee Day!
