A new take on espresso…

red espressoAs a tea that can be brewed as an espresso, red espresso® opens up a variety of options to those who either don’t like coffee or are trying to watch their caffeine intake. Naturally caffeine-free, this new take on rooibus tea can be used in cafe favorites such as lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos, as well as iced teas, juices and smoothies.

We have previously talked about how adding tea lattes can help drive traffic to your store by giving non-coffee drinkers more options and creating new menu items. And with 5x the antioxidants of green tea, red espresso® is great for health as an immunity booster and a healthy heart aid. To help you incorporate red espresso® into your menu, we have compiled some delicious recipes! Find them below:

New Red Bull Infusion recipes!

The summer season can lead to restless nights and tired mornings. This can be chalked up to constant changing schedules, school, vacations, and the later daylight hours make it more difficult to sleep at night. We decided to create a few recipes featuring Red Bull and some of our other favorite products to help get rid of those bags under your eyes and make sure you keep going for hours!

Our Raspberry Whey Red Bull Smoothie is designed to wake you up in the morning and keep you full until lunch with Smoothie Ceuticals Whey Protein Powder. We’ve paired Red Bull and DaVinci Invigorators to create Get Up & Go, the perfect fizzy soda to fight the mid-afternoon lull. And if you need an extra kick before you head out for the evening, we have the Toro Inflamado! Perfect for backyard cookouts, this spicy sweet cocktail is a combination of Torani’s Sweet Heat syrup and Red Bull.

Although these drinks are full of flavor and are delicious, we do not recommend consuming all three in one day. Find recipes below:

Raspberry Whey Red Bull Smoothie3

  • 1 scoop Smoothie-Ceuticals® Vanilla Whey Powder
  • 4 oz Raz-Berry Organics by Dr. Smoothie
  • 4 oz Red Bull
