I’m experiencing the entire line of Blume Superfood Lattes for a whole year, and here’s how it’s going!
Here at HealthyFrenchWife, we take healthy lifestyle-focused products out for the ultimate test drive, so we can share our honest reviews and recommendations with you. And today, we are testing Blume’s latte blends.
Blume offers a line of healthy, nutrient-rich superfood elixirs, which you can serve hot or cold.
I’ll be updating this post each season and sharing my journey of swapping coffee for superfood lattes!
I Tried the entire line of Blume Superfood Lattes for a year
So many of us have a hard time relaxing, unwinding, and clearing our heads.
Humans were made like all other animals, to eat, sleep, socialize, and relax out in the sun.
But that’s not the life we lead anymore. In modern times, our lives are so busy, that we rarely get enough sun, or sleep, at all.
Our minds are adrift with stress and chaos at every turn, and so, we just can’t seem to shut off.
Many of us seek out solutions and learn about our health and our bodies.
Healthy diets, workouts, and stretching is important, but that’s never going to be the end of it.
Many of us love a toasty warm drink to wake up to in the mornings, to chill out in the evenings. But, drinking caffeinated coffee every day can become a bit much.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE coffee. I am obsessed with it, in fact.
For the past 10 years, I have had at least 3 cups of coffee a day.
And that is the problem.
This means that like any addiction, we can become dependent on it. And it’s hard to cut back on.
In an effort to cut back on my caffeine intake, and have more nutrient-rich drinks, I have given myself a simple task:
And that is to brew a Blume superfood latte, every day for the next 365 days.
What is Blume? Well, it’s the perfect hot drink, packed with superfoods to help you feel your best.
How Blume Works
Blume is trading the caffeine in your typical coffee beverages for big bold colors and flavors.
They are known as superfood lattes, and they take out the espresso in exchange for superfood ingredients.
Replacing the caffeine for sea minerals, beetroot, turmeric, and so on, it is these that also give these beverages their unique coloring and hues.
But, aside from looking awesome, they are also believed to have amazing health benefits too!
They are nutrient-rich foods that are beneficial for your health.
The co-founder herself discovered that turmeric was a natural anti-inflammatory for her mother’s arthritis and so was born the turmeric blend.
All you need to do is add some hot water and a cup of hot or cold plant-based milk, and a single teaspoon to the power.
To sweeten your blend, you can add a dash of maple syrup.
Each of their blends has health-beneficial properties while also looking appealing as well, as I will illustrate below.
But first, let’s open our first Blume delivery!
In this first delivery, we purchased 6 flavors to start with, as well as their handheld milk frother.
Blume Superfood Latte Blends
Speaking of which, let’s have a look at their many different blends! Each has its own wow-factor, and health factors!
Reishi Hot Cacao Blend
The Reishi Hot Cacao blend is my absolute favorite one of all.
I actually mix a little bit of this into my other Blume lattes sometimes too!
Ceremonial cacao has incredible health benefits.
With tons of vitamins and minerals, Cacao helps with blood flow to the brain. This, in turn, can increase your focus, awareness, and brain function.
Add in some mushrooms – yes, mushrooms! And you are in for a treat.
Known as the mushroom of immortality, reishi is a popular stress-soothing adaptogen that helps you fight off the blues and improve your sleep cycle. We paired this with serotonin-boosting cacao – Blume
You can give your immune system the love it deserves with a mushroom hot chocolate. Okay! Yes! We know, some of you hate mushrooms, but don’t knock it ‘till you try it!
It is creamy, chocolatey, and you can’t even taste the mushrooms.
But, it does give your immune system a cuddle, which is great if you’re feeling down in the dumps.
It’s also organic and vegan. There is everything to love here!
The Cacao Turmeric Blend
This is the one we mentioned earlier, Blume’s turmeric superfood blend.
It is vegan, sugar-free, and organic. Turmeric soothes your body and another ingredient- ashwagandha- calms your brain.
It reduces stress and gives your skin a natural glow, while also helping your body with digestion.
It is very satisfying as a hot chocolate and its benefits are unrivaled!
Who doesn’t want to feel super relaxed and have naturally glowing skin?
The Glow Up Water Elixir
This one is meant to be enjoyed on ice. But as you see in the image below, I blended it up like a latte.
The Glow Up is great hot, or cold!
This hydrating berry elixir of prebiotic fruits and soothing botanicals aims to improve your skin while helping your gut.
So that you can glow from the inside out.
It is a great source of Vitamin C, too.
Matcha Coconut Blend
I am new to the matcha trend!
I’ve seen people showing off their Starbucks Matchas on Instagram for years. But I only recently tried my first one.
And what can I say? After 3 weeks of Blume’s Matcha Coconut latte, I’m now a fan!
Organically grown and sourced from the Shizuoka region of Japan, this blend is a combination of stone-ground, hand-picked matcha, and antioxidant-rich moringa, with a creamy coconut finish. Balanced with L-theanine, matcha’s natural caffeine is slowly absorbed into the body, giving you that zen-ergized feeling all day long. – Blume
On its own, this Blume blend is good, but I found that using Vanilla almond milk, with a little drop of maple syrup makes the perfect matcha latte!
Blue Lavender Blend
Containing lavender, coconut milk and blue spirulina this blend is very smooth, calming and balanced.
The Blue Lavender blend is made to smooth inflammation and aid in getting rid of restlessness.
It just turns your brain off and allows you to relax, and given it helps reduce inflammation, it’s a great immune booster too!
It is actually nicer than it sounds, give it a try! Oh, and it’s caffeine-free, vegan, and organic!
This one’s pink! The Beetroot blend is a pretty pink latte that gives you an energy boost and helps your body repair itself naturally. Beetroots are actually chock-a-block with nitrates which help to support your body post-workout, and give your heart a bit of extra care.
If you add this to your almond milk, oatmeal, or smoothies, it will make you feel amazing!
It is a bit like having an all-spice latte with some beet in it! What’s even better? It’s vegan, caffeine-free, organic, and sugar-free as well!
Rose London Fog Blend
That time of the month? Drink this Rose London Fog blend!
“Rose has been used for centuries to ease symptoms of PMS and bloating, naturally.” – Blume
Not only is this superfood latte blend comforting when you have cramps, but it is super rich in vitamins that do wonders for your mood, too.
The Benefits of Blume Superfood Lattes
Each beverage will have its own benefits, some give you a boost, some help your immune system.
But, whatever the case, we can’t ignore a few factors about the company! So, let’s look.
Organic means there is no artificial rubbish in there.
It’s organic, not mass farmed, so it is wonderful for you!
Not only is organic food good for you, but it’s also good for the planet too.
All of Blume’s Superfood latte blends are vegan as well, so you can enjoy them whatever your diet.
Too many beverage blends contain animal milk or animal products, these don’t, so they are perfectly usable for vegans!
Simply add almond milk or your plant-based milk of choice to any blend, and enjoy!
Refined sugar is not natural sugar.
Natural sugars are the ones we need, found in fruit and vegetables, but refined sugar is not real and is what causes problems. These blends have none of that!
Not only are these blends vegan friendly, they’re also friendly to those with food intolerances like those who have a gluten intolerance.
Truly a very inclusive product!
Not only are they refined sugar-free, they’re also free of syrups as well!
The whole company is eco-friendly, looking to reduce the harmful effects of food and health on the environment.
Every Blume purchase will divert 2x the plastic they create from entering the oceans.
