Quickly quench your thirst with these easy caffeine-free drinks. They’re fast, tasty, and come without the troublesome jitters of coffee.
We all know how it feels to hit that midday slump and the urge to reach for another cup of joe.
But with these caffeine-free drinks, you’ll be left hydrated and refreshed, sans that niggling coffee-induced headache.
From homemade sodas to beetroot lattes and everything in between, you can finally indulge in a tasty bevy without the caffeine.
1. Chick-fil-A Lemonade
No need to stop by your favorite fast-food chicken joint because this recipe replicates the crowd-pleasing lemonade right in your own kitchen.
If you want a summer refresher, give this recipe a try.
2. Orange Julius
Orange Julius is a must-have every time I take a trip to the mall.
There’s just something about the mixt of citrusy orange and cream that’s to die for.
This recipe tastes just like the food court staple, allowing you to have an afternoon refresher whenever you need a pick-me-up.
3. Mulled Cider
The thing I love most about fall is the abundance of apple cider. And this recipe is the best place to start.
That said, this is one cozy drink, and you don’t have to wait until fall to make it.
It adds an extra depth of flavor that I just know you’ll love.
4. Golden Milk
One of the reasons I reach for coffee is the need for something warm and satisfying.
But now, I’m craving this golden milk all day long!
The milk gets its dark yellow color from turmeric, an ancient spice with anti-inflammatory powers.
It’s also wonderfully spiced and insanely creamy.
5. Root Beer Float
This classic ice cream float is a summer mainstay for me. It’s so sweet, creamy, and refreshing that I could drink them all day.
Best of all, unlike most sodas, root beer doesn’t contain any caffeine!
So, try this on a balmy summer day, and you’ll forget all about that iced coffee craving.
6. Starbucks Pink Drink
Okay, how pretty does this Starbucks Pink Drink look?
This copycat version emulates the original perfectly – at a fraction of the cost!
It’s a wonderful caffeine-free recipe that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
7. Strawberry Lemonade
Can you think of a better combination than strawberry and lemonade? It’s as if the delicious duo were made for each other.
I don’t know about you, but I often find lemonade too sour, and I don’t want to add a ton of sugar to make it palatable.
Instead, I like to flavor it, and naturally sweet strawberries and my fave!
8. Caffeine-Free Homemade Sodas
Have you ever made your own soda? It’s surprisingly easy these days and a terrific option when you want to cut out caffeine and sugar.
This recipe creates a fizzy refreshment that uses fresh fruit to make it sweet.
So, not only is it a healthier alternative to store-bought soda (goodbye corn syrup!), but it also tastes way better.
9. Vegan Pumpkin Spice Drink
Fall has long been my favorite season, but I can hardly wait for the first leaves to drop since pumpkin spice has taken off.
As soon as all things pumpkin spice hit the shelves, you’ll find me in flannel and boots!
Of course, most pumpkin spice lattes are loaded with caffeine and dairy, which isn’t what we want, right?
That’s where this recipe comes in to save the day.
Now you can enjoy a vegan pumpkin spice drink that doesn’t contain any coffee at all! It’s the perfect treat for a brisk fall night.
10. Warm Cinnamon Milk
Warm cinnamon milk is what dreams are made of. It’s so cozy and soothing that you’ll be making this every night.
All it takes is cinnamon, milk, vanilla extract, and your sweetener of choice (maple syrup would taste amazing in this).
To be honest, I even like this once it’s cooled. Throw in some ice, and you’ll be surprised at how yummy it is.
11. Caffeine-Free Lemon Iced Tea
After a long, hot summer’s day, all I want is a tall glass of iced tea. But I don’t want to be kept up after the hit of caffeine.
That’s why this recipe for caffeine-free lemon iced tea is such a godsend.
It shows you how to make the ultimate citrusy iced tea minus the sleepless nights.
12. Healthy Chai Latte
This healthy chai latte is 100% raw, and oh-so-delicious.
My favorite thing about chai is the warm bite of spice, and this latte is not short on warmth.
It’s creamy, wholesome, and makes a great afternoon pick-me-up during a hectic day.
13. Warm Vanilla Custard Drink
Okay, how good does the warm vanilla custard drink look?
It tastes similar to egg nog except you can enjoy it all year round.
This makes a great coffee alternative at breakfast, when you’re looking for a warm drink to wake you up.
And it would even work as a dessert alternative after a big meal.
14. Beetroot Latte
Say what you want about beetroot, but you can’t deny how stunning it is. Who doesn’t want a pastel pink cup of yum?
Each cup carries the earthiness of beetroot, minus any of the bitterness. Instead, it’s a sweet, spicy drink that fuels you for the day ahead.
I like to whip up this beetroot latte in the late afternoon when I don’t want to overdo it with coffee.
It gives me a familiar warmth that coffee has, but without any of the shakes.
15. Herbal Dalgona Coffee
Some of us were forced to stare at our phones for much of 2020 (and 2021). But others took it as a chance to create some pretty unique content.
And one of the best things to come out of lockdown (in my opinion) is the explosion of Dalgona coffee.
Of course, we’re talking about caffeine drinks here, which is why you’ll love this unique take.
It uses dandelion root powder to create an earthy, roasted flavor that emulates the tastes and texture of instant coffee.
Trust me; this is one to try!
16. Vanilla Chai Latte
This simple beverage is created without coffee but tastes every bit as good.
If you love a daily latte but don’t want to consume coffee, this drink is a great substitute.
The chai gives it a fabulous spice that prevents it from tasting too bland. Combined with the vanilla sweetness, this is one pleasing start to your day.
17. Cinnamon Turmeric Iced Tea
This nutrient-dense thirst quencher will power you up for the day ahead.
It’s rich in anti-inflammatory properties, and will cool you off after a summer jog or swim.
It can even be served as a cute mocktail for nights when you don’t want to drink, but still want to enjoy a cool bevy.
Revolutionize your patio nights with this delicious drink.
18. Homemade Orange Juice
There’s something so lovely about homemade orange juice. It just tastes so much better than the store-bought.
If you want to make an impression on your brunch guests, be sure to follow this recipe and whip up some homemade orange juice before their arrival.
No one will be noticing the absence of coffee when this freshly squeezed OJ is sitting pretty on the table.
19. Agua Fresca
Agua Fresca is an easy summer refresher that uses only fruit, water, lime, and a little sweetener.
The end result is an ultimate thirst quencher that will leave you feeling cooled and ready to take on the world.
20. London Fog
London Fog is one of those tea recipes I’ll never get sick of.
As the name suggests, it’s the perfect drink to cozy up to on a rainy, foggy day.
It’s also super easy to make caffeine-free! Just substitute decaf Earl Gray for regular and then you can enjoy it at any time of day.
