Blended Coffee

It’s another beautiful morning here in Northern Michigan, I’ve really been enjoying getting up early and making the most out of my days. It’s actually been rather refreshing to try to get back into this kind of routine. Before the sun rises you basically have the world to yourself, even if it’s only for less than an hour. I’ve been enjoying that time in the morning on my runs. To be at one with nature knowing that you’re probably not going to see another human out on a trail that early is a special feeling, that we should all take more advantage of. Even if it’s just getting up early to read and enjoy the quietness of the world.

I know most of us we have a morning routine we usually stick to it might include a morning a workout, reading and breakfast.  Somewhere in between all that or maybe even BEFORE we do anything of those things we need a quick pick-me-up to really get body going.  Most of us probably drink coffee, warm water with lemon, or tea. For all of you coffee lovers or maybe even non coffee lovers I got a real treat for you! This blended coffee will be your new favorite morning go-to drink to get you pumped up for the day!
