My mama always told me that a colorful plate was a healthy one. So far Copper Cup has only had one bright, gold color, until today.
We at Copper Cup are pleased to reveal two new sister flavors to the original Turmeric Latte: the Red and Supergreens Lattes!
(We also added Gift Cards and $10 Gift Wrapping on any order) :D
These two new sister flavors fulfill the same promise of Copper Cup's Turmeric Latte, but using different delicious and healthy ingredients. Both of the new flavors are organic, vegan, and caffeine free. Both are safe and healthy for children and adults to drink. Both include powerful adaptogenic spices, similar in strength to turmeric, that will give you energy while making you feel your absolute best.
So what is in them?
New Organic Ingredients
The Red Latte includes: a Beet-Raspberry blend, Coconut Milk, Coconut Sugar, Schisandra Berries, Cayenne, Ginger, and Vanilla.
The Supergreens Latte includes: Wheatgrass, Spirulina, Chlorella, Coconut Milk, Coconut Sugar, Ginseng, Ginger, and Vanilla.
How We Developed the Two New Recipes
Sometimes people ask about how we make Copper Cup, so here's the insider scoop about how to make an awesome new food recipe. Just go for it!
When I started experimenting with new flavors, I always started with organic, vegan, and caffeine free ingredients. Like the turmeric latte, I wanted to ditch caffeine and instead deliver energy to people using adaptogenic herbs and spices. Energy without the jitters! Each of the new flavors starts with superfoods and then adds a medicinal dose of one or more powerful adaptogens.
The Supergreens Latte is very green. When you first smell it, you'll think we just sent you matcha. Do not be fooled. There is no matcha and no caffeine in this mix. What you are smelling is our own developed supergreens blend of Wheatgrass, Spirulina, and Chlorella which together provide hard-to-get phytonutrients, chlorophyll, and plant amino acids. To this superfood base, we added the ancient adaptogen Ginseng. This ultra-powerful adaptogenic herb that
I always had a hunch that the Supergreens Latte was going to be a hit, but it took some time and experimentation to figure out the Red Latte recipe.
At first I was trying to make a blue latte using organic blueberry, but it doesn't dissolve in milk. Then I tried to make a purple latte with taro and the adaptogen maca, but the flavor was too starchy and thick. I had tasted "Beet Lattes" before at a few cafes, but I know not everyone loves beets, so I was steering away from that. I experimented with strawberries, raspberries, and pomegranates, and had a lot of luck with raspberries. That lead me to the big discovery! Raspberries covered over the grassiness of beets! And so a beet-raspberry became the base of the Red Latte.
The Red Latte still needed its superfood. Using the color red as my guide I honed in on Schisandra Berry and Cayenne Pepper. You probably haven't heard of Schisandra Berry, but please please please check it out. Schisandra Berry is a very potent adaptogen. Like all adaptogens it has been proven to reduce levels of the stress hormone (cortisol) in the body, reduce feelings of fatigue, and increase energy levels. Each adaptogen has its own strength, and Schisandra Berry's is providing a burst of clean, warm energy to your body and mood.
Saddled up with Schisandra Berry is Cayenne Pepper. In the Turmeric Latte, Cayenne Pepper is just for a bit of spice, but in the Red Latte, we've more than quadrupled the amount of Cayenne upping in to a medicinal dose. (Don't worry, the beet-raspberry base makes it not too spicy). Cayenne Pepper increases circulation, bodily warmth, and energy. All that heat and circulation makes it a known and popular aphrodisiac. Please use Copper Cup Red Latte responsibly! :D
