With Halloween just around the corner, it may feel like you’ve crossed everything off of your October 31 to-do list.
Stack of scary movies? Check.
Decorations and costumes? Double check!
Before you jump into the trick-or-treat spirit however, we’ve thought of one last, necessary addition to the list: crafting a cup of cold-brew for the spookyholiday. Ditch the regular add-ins for some out-of-the-box ingredients sure to frighten your tastebuds with delight. Make your favorite to celebrate, or create each for some pre-Halloween treats!
Change the pace of your morning mug with an ingredient made to keep you energized and feeling great all-day long: Ghee. This “butter in coffee” trend took a cult-following this past year, but not only is it popular, it’s deliciously good for you. This lactose-free option provides your body with omega-3s, antioxidants, and various vitamins, while also kicking your body into fat-burning drive at the start of the day. Scare your tastebuds into action first thing in the morning with a Chameleon Cold-Brew Bullseye Brew!
Looking for something a bit more aesthetically pleasing toward the holiday? Take your afternoon pick-me-up to the dark side with the Chameleon Cold-Brew Charcoal Latte.This superfood can help banish bloat, lower cholesterol and even whiten teeth! Not only will this cup of gray caffeine add some spook to your day, but various spins on the idea make it obvious that this drink was made for lovers of ghosts and goblins alike.
Stay warm this Halloween with a dash of reishi powder blended into our Chameleon Cold-Brew Hot Reishi Mocha. This hot cold-brew concoction holds a tasty treat with some spooky powers, such as boosting immune systems and increasing life spans. Reishi, a.k.a. a Lingzhi mushroom nicknamed “The God Fungi” has been praised in Asian cultures for years in promoting well-being and longevity. So what are you waiting for? Test out the Halloween magic and enjoy a caffeinated treat all in the same glass.
Keep the Halloween party going all-night long with a (not so) spooky but necessary bit of booze. Whether you’re enjoying the evening with a few friends or find yourself hosting a full-blown Halloween party, various cocktail recipes from Chameleon Cold-Brew are sure to put you in the celebrating spirit.
