Fall weather makes us want to cozy up with a cup of coffee, and based on your checkins, you feel the same way! We’ve had a lot of questions about which coffees are TIU Nutrition Plan approved, so we whipped together five of our absolute favorite java drinks to share with you!

Karena and I love coffee for so many reasons. Not only does it taste ahh-maze, but it also has some incredible health benefits. Caffeine increases dopamine levels in your body to help lift your mood. Studies have also found that coffee boosts levels of the satiety-signaling hormone PYY, which will reduce your cravings later in the day. For a boost of collagen in your coffee, try adding in our collagen creamer!

Not to mention, coffee looks pretty fab in pics, #amiright?

Iced Latte

One of our go-tos! We love iced lattes for their on-the-fly simplicity! Other than plain black coffee, this is the easiest drink to throw together for your morning buzz on busy mornings.

Vanilla Latte

This tasty lil’ cuppa will make your taste buds do a happy dance, but still keep you on track with the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan! You can whip this up in advance and simply reheat it on your stovetop or in the microwave. Easy peasy.

Mocha Latte

If you’re craving a lil’ bit of chocolate-y goodness with your morning cup of joe, you have to try this recipe! It makes two servings, so you can indulge with a gal pal. We used unsweetened cocoa, but you can use cacao powder as well!

This is a traditional dessert coffee to serve after meals on special occasions. It’s usually made with espresso over ice cream or gelato. We made it #TIUapproved by trading the sugary ice cream for a homemade frozen yogurt! If you’re sensitive to caffeine, we recommend swapping in decaf espresso.

Tone It Up Nutrition Plan Review



  1. I am going to try the vanilla latte this weekend! I usually have espresso with unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but I wouldn’t mind a little more vanilla flavor.

  2. I always have your ice latte but I cannot wait to try the rest :). Thank you for this :)

    1. Hi, I don’t have this machine myself but I saw one that looked awesome on an infomercial last weekend. I think the maker is NINJA! Check it out :)

      1. We have a Nespresso maker with a separate frother (I like almond milk and my husband is whole milk all the way). Katrina has said she uses a Thermador machine.

  3. Do you have to make the espresso yourself or could you buy a thing of espresso at the grocery store? Some of us don’t even have a coffee machine

  4. Just made the mocha latte!! So perfect! And I like my coffee just a certain way. Nothing bitter, nothing too sweet, just rich creamy goodness!! ;)

  5. What is a comparable substitute for almond milk in these recipes, for those of us that can’t have nuts? Will rice milk deliver the same result?
