Pour it up, pour it UP!
Fall weather makes us want to cozy up with a cup of coffee, and based on your checkins, you feel the same way! We've had a lot of questions about which coffees are TIU Nutrition Plan approved, so we whipped together five of our absolute favorite java drinks to share with you!
Karena and I love coffee for so many reasons. Not only does it taste ahh-maze, but it also has some incredible health benefits. Caffeine increases dopamine levels in your body to help lift your mood. Studies have also found that coffee boosts levels of the satiety-signaling hormone PYY, which will reduce your cravings later in the day. For a boost of collagen in your coffee, try adding in our collagen creamer!
Not to mention, coffee looks pretty fab in pics, #amiright?

This is a traditional dessert coffee to serve after meals on special occasions. It's usually made with espresso over ice cream or gelato. We made it #TIUapproved by trading the sugary ice cream for a homemade frozen yogurt! If you're sensitive to caffeine, we recommend swapping in decaf espresso.
