It’s hard for coffee-lovers to understand, but not everyone loves the caffeine-laden liquid…

If you’re someone who really doesn’t enjoy the taste of coffee, or you just want an alternative from time-to-time, then read on. These energy-boosting drinks are great for giving you a power boost, without packing on the pounds. Rather than ‘sweetening’ up your coffee with sugar and milk and other flavourings to make it palatable, rather try some of these diet-friendly options:

1. Green tea

Green tea will give you an energy-boost, and a (smaller) hit of caffeine, but with a different taste.

Not everyone enjoys this drink either, but you can easily get green teas which are ‘flavoured’ with fruits, herbs and the like, so it’s fairly flexible in that way. It’s also packed with antioxidants, too.
