Broccoli Coffee Is A Real Thing

[unable to retrieve full-text content]

I’m a sucker for food fads, so bring on the unicorn cakes and the cotton candy cocktails. In fact, as a Gemini, I’ll frankly try almost anything twice.

As a pretty slothful twenty-something, I often struggle to remember if I’ve fulfilled my required fruit and veggie intake for the day. Does a Bloody Mary count? Especially if I’m not cooking for myself at home. 

So when I heard there was a way to get caffeinated AND eat my daily vegetables all in one, I figured this might just be the trend for lazy me.

Enter Broccoli Coffee. The food industry’s latest gross-sounding attempt to get everyone to eat their greens. 

The scientists at Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) and Host Innovation discovered a way to dry and pulverize ugly broccoli (bunches too imperfect to sell in stores) into a flavorful green powder. Mix two tablespoons of it into any drink, soup or food recipe and you’ll end up with a whole serving of vegetables. 

Broccoli is also a great source of vitamins C, K, A, and B6, and is super rich in other nutrients that are really good for you and your body. 

If broccoffees aren’t looking like your thing, consider broccoli powder just another beneficial additive to throw into a smoothie, shake, or that muffin recipe you’ve been dying to try out. Combined with sweeter, more flavorful ingredients, you’ll barely taste the broccoli and still reap all of its benefits.

It all comes down down to what your tastebuds can get down with. And whether this broccolatte looks appealing to you at all. 

Twitter lost its mind when the news of broccoli coffee spread.

With most people thinking this health trend is just not going to take off. 

While others are approaching the broccoli powder thing with an open mind.

No matter which side of this you’re on, I think we can all agree it takes a brave soul to risk ruining their morning cup of joe with cruciferous greens.

These Goth Lattes Redefine What 'Black' Coffee Is

You’ve heard of goth ice cream and, let’s be honest, it looks absolutely delicious. But what about goth lattes?

That’s right, you can totally get the blackest of the black coffee imaginable with these new, brutal caffeinated delights.

Technically, it’s called a charcoal latte, so don’t start playing The Sisters of Mercy just yet.

But on second thought, you totally could. It’s not like there’s anything necessarily keeping you from calling these yummy-looking cups of coffee “goth.” 

These darker than dark lattes are currently all the rage in cafes throughout England and Australia.

And as it turns out, they don’t just look cool and taste delicious – they also pack some health benefits.

Brit + Co says that ingesting activated charcoal can do wonders for helping to detox your digestive system. Which sounds like fancy talk for helping you poop healthily.

Like any self-respecting latte, these Instagrammable dark beverages are topped off with wonderful, white foam designs, giving them a very yin and yang look.

I mean look at how pretty that is. And pretty is not a word that I would usually use to describe coffee.

It could also help make a fashion statement.

Probably peering out the window, wondering why he settled for regular old boring coffee all his life.
