5 Easy Coffee Recipes For Weight Loss

You don't have to drink it black for it to be healthy.

People in America drink over 400,000 million cups of coffee every day, so it's safe to say this caffeinated beverage isn't going anywhere any time soon. From plain black coffees to specialty pumpkin spice lattes, you can enjoy a nice energy boost in pretty much any way imaginable. And if you're someone who is trying to make healthier choices in your diet, coffee can help with that, too.

The way that you drink your coffee may have more of an impact on your health than you realize. For example, if you're someone who only drinks coffee with a lot of cream and added sugar, you may be derailing your weight loss goals over time. But the good news is that you don't have to drink it black for your coffee to be a healthy addition to your morning routine.

Read on to see our round-up of healthy coffee recipes to try for weight loss, and for more on how to eat healthy, don't miss Eating Habits to Lose Abdominal Fat As You Age, Say Dietitians.
