1.) Add a Scoop of Protein Powder
You asked and we delivered! We now offer a vanilla protein powder at most of our locations. You can enjoy this new product as a Granita (w/ espresso) or as a Smoothie (w/out espresso). You can also add a scoop of protein to any of your current favorite blended drinks! With 20 grams of protein per scoop and an optimal amino acid profile, our protein powder drinks will keep you full and focused all day!
Barista Tip: Add a half scoop of protein to your favorite fruit smoothie flavor for the perfect afternoon snack!
2.) Fat-free or dairy-free anyone?
Substituting your favorite drink with a fat-free dairy or dairy-free alternative can cut you’re your calories in HALF! Swapping chocolate milk for non-fat milk in your mocha will reduce the calories and eliminate the fat, while still satisfying your coffee and chocolate craving.
Dairy-free alternatives can also be a great option for creating a health conscious coffee beverage. At The Human Bean, we offer soy, almond and coconut milk at most of our locations. These dairy-free alternatives are low in fat and calories, contain no cholesterol and have up to 50% more calcium than dairy milk. Try soy, almond, macadamia, oat or coconut milk in your next coffee!
3.) Add a shot? Why not!
If you enjoy a strong coffee flavor, this is the trick for you! Espresso contains 0 calories and can cut anywhere from 15 to 50 calories from your drink. This trick works because the extra espresso replaces the higher calorie dairy or dairy substitute products. On your next drink, simply ask for an extra shot and you’ve got yourself a coffee with fewer calories and more of your favorite coffee flavor.
If too much caffeine is a concern of yours, ask your barista for an extra decaf shot of espresso.
You now hold three simple tips for healthy Human Bean drinks and tricks to creating a delicious, yet healthier coffee option. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your new coffee knowledge. Remember, you can have your coffee and drink it guilt-free at The Human Bean.
