While some people try to make huge changes at the start of the year, smaller, manageable adjustments can last longer. When that food resolution becomes a lifestyle, it often happens because the healthy eating adaptation feels like the indulgence that previously filled the space. This year, stick to those food resolutions by shaking up the latte routine with some simple swaps.

For many people, that latte is more than a morning caffeine boost. The beverage is part of a daily routine. Even if some versions might have more sugar than a slice of cake, there is something craveable about each sip.

Given that many people may not be ready to switch from latte to water to start the day, some smaller swaps can shake up that latte routine and make sticking to that food resolution easier. Even though many people are ditching the negative connotations around food choices, a few modifications can be a smart choice.

For example, many people love those frozen, blended coffee drinks but they can be full of sugar and extra calories. Atkins has a way to make a simple Coffee Frappé recipe that is under 200 calories. After a few sips, some people might prefer the lower calorie version.

Another recipe that will warm up a chilly morning is the Keto Cinnamon Dolce Latte. With 15g of protein and just 3g carbs, it sets the day off on a satisfying note. And, it can be served chilled for those people who cannot get enough of the chilled coffee trend.

Lastly for the person who loves some spice with their beverage, the Keto Chai Spice and Coffee Latte is quite comforting. With a little foam for a touch of whimsy, this beverage is perfect for some me time and relaxation.

The biggest takeaway from these recipes is that the latte routine can fit within any healthy eating lifestyle. One sip does not have to derail that food resolution. Satisfying solutions are always available.
