Try These 3 Dairy Free Morning Coffees

Coffee in the early morning is the wake-up call for everyone. Many people consider coffee to be their “drug” and drink it several times during the day; and for a reason, caffeine is the best stimulant for our central nervous system.  There are many types of coffees mix with milk; such as macchiato, cappuccino and different types of lattes. However, many people are lactose intolerant and skip milk in their coffees. There is a way of drinking cappuccino and lattes and not getting your stomach upset by using dairy-free milk such as almond, soy, and hazelnut milk.  These can add flavor and nutrients to your regular black coffees.
