The Best Low Histamine Coffee Substitutes:
When it comes to low histamine coffee substitutes there are a lot to choose from. While these low histamine coffee substitutes might not be completely free from causing any histamine side effects, they are a much better low amine alternative to coffee.
Here are my suggestions for Kick-Ass Coffee Alternatives…
1. Guayakí Yerba Mate:
Yerba Mate is made from the naturally caffeinated and nourishing leaves of the celebrated South American rainforest holly tree. Although it contains the same stimulants as coffee, including caffeine, it does not have the same high acidity content. Moreover, Yerba Mate also contains an abundance of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, making it an excellent choice for a coffee replacement.
Yerba Mate can be prepared in many ways: in a coffee machine, in a French Press or in the same way you would prepare tea. I like the Guayakí brand, which comes in a wide range of flavors and varieties. You could buy loose leaves, individual bags or ready-made drinks. My new favorite morning drinks are made with Guayakí’s individual bags in either the Chai Spice Mate or the Mate Chocolatté flavors, to which I add steamed soy milk, a touch of Stevia and sprinkle with cinnamon or cacao powder (I use my Starbuck’s Verismo Milk Frother to steam my soy milk).
Teeccino is a fabulous coffee alternative that is made from herbs, grains, fruits and nuts. There are many flavors and varieties of Teeccino, and they are all nutritious and certified organic. You would make Teeccino the same way that you would make coffee, and the various flavors also come in individual bags for an instant cup. Carob, Chicory Root, Barley, Dates, Figs, Almonds, Ramon Seeds and Dandelion Root are examples of Teeccino herbal coffee ingredients. You just have to experiment to find the flavors that you like best.
3. Dandy Blend Instant Herbal Beverage With Dandelion:
Yes, you read it correctly. This instant herbal beverage is made with the roasted roots of dandelion, chicory, beets, and the grains of barley and rye. It is also caffeine- and gluten-free, and has no acidity or bitterness. The Dandy Blend is my favorite coffee substitute, especially with Organic Wildwood soy creamer, my favorite brand. Not only is it nutritious but also simple to make. Just add one teaspoonful into a cup of hot or cold liquid!
4. Naturalis INKA:
Cafix is an all-natural beverage also made from barley, chicory, malted barley, figs and extracts of beet. It has a coffee-like flavor, very low acidity and no artificial ingredients, and is non-GMO. I have never tried Cafix, but I like the idea that it is also available in the form of instant beverage “crystals.”
Naturalis INKA is an instant grain beverage that has been enjoyed by Polish families for generations. It is made from Rye, Roasted Barley, Beets and Chicory Root.
Pero is yet another coffee substitute made with malted barley, chicory and rye. I have never tried Pero, but I know that it’s quite popular. As with all of the grain coffee beverages, it’s just a matter of finding one that you like.
8. Green Tea And All Other Varieties Of Tea:
Tea is by far my favorite substitute for coffee. Green tea has been known to be one of the healthiest beverages you can drink, and Matcha Green Tea is “off the charts” miraculous. Click here to read about my favorite varieties of loose-leaf tea. When I go to Starbuck’s with friends, I always order a Tazo Chai tea bag with steamed soy milk (i.e., a grande “chai tea soy misto”…no syrup flavoring). I make my own version at home too with my Starbuck’s Verismo Milk Frother.
