Decaf coffee is a great option for those who love the taste of coffee but don't want the caffeine buzz. While some may think that decaf coffee lacks the rich flavor of regular coffee, it's actually quite the opposite! Decaf coffee can be just as delicious and versatile as regular coffee, and can be used in a variety of recipes. In this blog, we'll explore some tasty decaf coffee recipes that will satisfy your cravings without keeping you up all night.
Decaf Iced Coffee
On a hot day, there's nothing better than a refreshing iced coffee. To make this recipe, start by brewing a cup of your favorite decaf coffee. Add ice to a glass and pour the coffee over it. Then, add some milk or cream and your preferred sweetener. Stir and enjoy!
Decaf Mocha Latte
If you're in the mood for something a little more indulgent, try a decaf mocha latte. Brew a cup of decaf coffee and add in some chocolate syrup. Heat up some milk on the stove or in the microwave and froth it using a frother or whisk. Add the frothed milk to your coffee and top with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. (Or... just brew a Smart Sips Decaf Caramel Mocha Latte or one of our other decaffeinated lattes in your Keurig).

For a healthy breakfast or snack, try a decaf coffee smoothie. Brew a cup of decaf coffee and let it cool. In a blender, combine the coffee with a banana, some almond milk, a scoop of protein powder, and some ice. Blend until smooth and enjoy!
Decaf Coffee Cake
If you're in the mood for something sweet, try a decaf coffee cake. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and a pinch of salt.

Pour the batter into a greased baking dish and bake in the oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
