5 Fresh Coffee Drinks to Pick You Up

by A Guest Author

If you are searching for five fresh coffee drinks to pick you up, there are many variations to be found that can be made as specified or modified to use your favorite ingredients in order to make these special coffees extra pleasurable to your palate. Using your imagination can create a long list of recipes to "jazz up" your morning or dinner dessert coffee and to keep your taste buds happy as they enjoy the variety of tastes.

You can also add any number of garnishes in addition to the usual whipped cream and chocolate shavings or chocolate or multicolored sprinkles. There are maraschino cherries, thin orange or lemon slices, kiwi, thin slices of strawberries or other berries, cinnamon sticks, rock sugar, cinnamon spice, nutmeg, a cinnamon-sugar mixture, caramel or chocolate topping, strawberry topping, nuts, and whatever else you can dream up.

Coffee does not just pick you up. Many studies have shown that coffee can be beneficial in giving various health benefits such as prevention of Type 2 diabetes because of its antioxidants, magnesium and chromium. People who drank one to three cups of coffee each day were 20 percent less apt to get abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias).

There is also a 20 percent less chance of stroke. A high consumption of coffee seems to lower the risk of liver cancer and cirrhosis. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) found that drinking a maximum of approximately 12 ounces of coffee daily does not seem to cause miscarriage, fetal growth or premature delivery.
