Honey in Coffee

5 June, 2015 / 5 Comments


I had this thought not too long ago about the possibility of adding honey to my coffee as a healthier alternative to sugar.  I checked online to see if anyone had tried it and what they had to say about it.  The results I found were people thinking you needed to add more honey than you would sugar or people dismissing the idea because they didn’t think it would dissolve properly in coffee.  So, I wanted to put my opinion out there and add it to the masses.

I tried this idea.  I put the exact amount of honey as I normally do of sugar and – I swear, I’m not even kidding – it tasted exactly the same!  If someone put in front of me two cups of coffee, one containing sugar and one containing honey, I truly don’t think I would be able to tell which was which!  So, that statement about having to add double the amount – I don’t find this to be true whatsoever!

Now, I always use natural, organic, raw honey (which you should do too – trust me!).  So, I’m not sure if that is the reason I have found different results or not.  I don’t find that the healthy honey tastes all that different from the unhealthy honey either, so I don’t know.  Personal preference only?  And, by the way, the honey dissolves just fine in hot coffee.

I would recommend trying this option if you normally add sugar to your coffee.  It is a much healthier option.  It might be a bit more pricey (as the healthy honey is a tad pricey), but it’s so worth it!

Share your story: Have you tried honey in your coffee?  Have you tried honey as an alternative to sugar in other things?  What do you think?  Doesn’t really change the taste, does it?

    Honey is a great alternative to sugar! I have begun to use honey instead of sugar in a variety of things lately and I honestly notice no difference in the taste. I also want to add that I tend to use less honey than sugar, which is a bonus.
