But, when you are used to the amazing side effects of Elevate smart coffee, you may be willing to take a few extra minutes every morning to make a coffee-house style drink. Take a look at some of these recipes and try a few! You may have some new favorites. 

How to Make Elevate Smart Coffee

To get the full effects of the nootropics in smart coffee, simply add one scoop or packet to 6-8 ounces of hot water. Now this is where you can get creative. You can simply add cream and sugar as you would your normal cup of coffee. But, if you are a cappuccino or latte or even Iced Coffee lover – read on and decide which one you will try next. 

How to Make Cappuccino with Smart Coffee

Tools Needed: 

Smart Coffee or Nitro Brew

1 cup milk (or as much as desired)

Milk Frother (See my preferred frother here)

There’s nothing quite like a freshly made cappuccino to go with breakfast. You can make semi-authentic Italian-style cappuccino at home with smart coffee in three easy steps.

The great news is that you don’t need a fancy cappuccino machine. You can make a great-tasting cappuccino with a few inexpensive items. Let’s take a look.

Step 1:

This is the easy step. All you do is add one scoop of smart coffee or nitro brew to 6-8 ounces of hot water. This is the base for your cappuccino. 

Step 2:

Heat the milk while the coffee is brewing. You can do this in a couple of different ways. The fastest way, of course, is in a microwave on Medium 45-60 seconds for every 1/4 cup. However, for best results, you’ll want to warm it in a small saucepan over medium heat until the milk is nearly boiling. If you have a thermometer, remove the pan from the heat when the needle reaches 149 degrees. Pre-heat each cup with hot water from the kettle. Next, pour freshly brewed coffee into a coffee cup and top with hot milk. Reserve one-quarter cup of hot milk per cup you plan to make so that you can make froth.

Step 3:

For this step, you’ll need a milk frother. To make froth with a manual 1-cup milk frother, pour the reserved hot milk into a warmed cup. Place the frother in the cup and pump up and down for 15-20 seconds or until milk is thick and frothy. Spoon froth over the cappuccinos and dust with chocolate to serve.

How to Make Iced Coffee with Elevate Smart Coffee

A big chill is sweeping the coffee industry as iced coffee beverages gain popularity. Check out these 4 ways to make iced coffee using your smart coffee!

Do you love iced coffee?

If so, you aren’t alone!

According to the National Coffee Association, the percentage of Americans who drink iced coffee beverages increased 20 percent over the past year.  Following the popularity of cappuccinos and lattes, consumers are discovering that coffee is just as tasty – and even more refreshing – when served ice cold.

Iced Coffee Cups & Smart Coffee

First things first, there are a few must have items for the perfect iced brew blend with smart coffee.

You’ve got to find the perfect coffee cup for a cold brew – check out this four cup set that you can pick in a variety of colors. These cups are 16 oz. and dishwasher safe. Check the current price here. 

Smart Coffee

One of the main ingredients you’ll want for this coffee brew is smart coffee. Smart Coffee is a great tasting micro-ground, functional coffee that contains a proprietary blend of Nootropic ingredients. Nootropics are all-natural amino acids, choline, and fat burners typically found in protein-rich foods but not always easy to get from diet alone. Nootropics are designed to assist with mental clarity, memory, and energy.

What does all that mean? Smart coffee helps you reduce brain fog, increase memory and focus, and even curbs cravings. Learn more about it here, “What is Smart Coffee?“

There are three varieties of smart coffee: regular smart coffee, Nitro brew, and Choclevate if you prefer chocolate over coffee. All three options give you the benefits of nootropics. Plus when you add Xanthomax, you’ll elevate all four happiness hormones. Happy coffee!

Let’s talk about flavor syrups for your iced coffee.

If you’re like me, you’ll want a great flavor to add to your coffee – cold or hot. This is where it can be tricky and add lots of unnecessary calories and sugar. There are tons of great vegan, non-GMO, and gluten-free options like Monin. Check it out here on Amazon. 

Now, if you are on the keto diet or just want to cut back on carbs, consider KetōCré as a creamer for your iced coffee.

KetōCré is a delicious creamer and a great addition to any weight management program while helping to enhance their daily performance. A delicious Ketogenic creamer designed to support a healthy “Keto” lifestyle! Not only does KetōCré taste amazing, but it helps fuel your ketogenic weight management goals. KetōCré works best when combined with a proper exercise and nutrition regimen.

4 Tips to Make Iced Coffee

Iced coffee can be as easy to prepare as iced tea. Using the options above, you can personalize the cold coffee as you please.

Don’t forget the cold milk, chocolate and spices. These will allow you to create personalized coffee concoctions that are just as delicious as those served in your favorite cafe.

Beverages such as iced vanilla mocha, iced rum coffee and iced latte are easy to make at home. Here are the 4 ways to make refreshing iced coffee drinks using smart coffee.

#1. Flavoring Syrup First

Pour the flavoring syrup into the cup first. To complete the drink, pour in espresso or coffee, then the ice, and top it off with cold milk.

#2. Cool Down with Ice Cubes

Don’t let your beverage become watered down. Cool your smart coffee with ice cubes made from fresh-brewed coffee instead of water.

#3. Make your Favorite Smart Coffee

Smart coffee is so easy to make! Whether you choose smart coffee, nitro, or Choclevate, all you have to do is add a scoop to 6-8 ounces of water. You can even make it with a keurig or any one-cup coffee maker.

#4. Be Creative

Add a personalized touch to your iced coffee beverages with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, nutmeg or cinnamon.

Brew your coffee for an 8 ounce portion. Set aside to cool or chill in the refrigerator. If the coffee is still hot, it will melt the ice and lose the frozen effect.

In a blender, combine the coffee, milk, cherries, chocolate, and ice. Blend until the ice is crushed. Taste and add additional ingredients as desired or more ice for a thicker drink.

Pour into a glass garnished with chocolate syrup. Top with whipped cream, chocolate chips, and additional cherries if desired. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

This coffee will be thinner than a milkshake. If your coffee is not frozen enough for your liking, add more ice.

Tip: You can make the coffee thicker by freezing the coffee into cubes in advance and by using frozen cherries. I used approximately 15 fresh cherries in this recipe. Frozen would work great as well.

What is Smart Coffee?

I’m so happy I learned about smart coffee, also known as happy coffee. It contains a secret ingredient called nootropics that helps increase focus, memory, and helps curb cravings. Many, many people have experienced weight loss just from drinking this coffee and the additional supplement that comes with it in the DOSE. With DOSE, you first select a functional beverage — smart coffee, nitro, or choclevate — and then you add a supplement called Xanthomax.

Xanthomax is like a power up button to help increase happiness. When you add smart coffee (regular, nitro, or chocolate) plus Xanthomax, we call this DOSE. DOSE stands for dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins – these are the happiness hormones that are elevated!

Secret to Happiness

Is taking DOSE the secret to happiness? I can only share my experience. I suffered from anxiety and depression after my first child was born. Our bodies change so much after babies!

So many things in my life were suffering – my relationships, my career, my overall happiness. When I discovered DOSE, my life completely changed.

You’ll learn so many stories of weight loss, and this is a very relevant side effect of the coffee. But, the main purpose of this coffee is HAPPINESS! This coffee has helped me improve my memory and focus, and I am so much happier these days. Sometimes as moms, we just need a little something to help us through the day. Happiness is from two sources – close relationships and hormones. These products called DOSE work together to elevate your happiness hormones!

It’s worth trying. While everyone is different, give it a month to see how it could possibly impact you. Let me know if you are going to give it a try!
