This One Ingredient You Probably Don't Add To Your Coffee (But Should!)

October 26, 2018

In my home, the morning doesn't go by without a cup of joe. That programming button on the coffee maker was a genius idea, and I'd like to shake that person's hand whoever invented that.

No matter where you end up getting your daily caffeine fix, we should never settle on that boring, bitter brew. For me, I usually end up adding too much creamer to drown out the bitter flavor. Some people add more sugar. Either way, adding more of that sweet stuff just doesn't fly with my doctor, so I needed another solution.

So how can I make my coffee taste better without adding the calories? "Cooking Light" has come up with the solution and I'm eager to try it out in the morning.

Salt. That's right! Just add a pinch of salt and your coffee will instantly turn into a smooth and creamy cup of joe.

If you think about it, cookies and other sweet treats call for a dash of salt in thousands of recipes. So, why not your coffee?

"Salt can 'neutralize' some of the bitterness of coffee, leaving you with a smoother drink. Just pour a pinch (roughly 1/8 teaspoon) into your coffee grounds before brewing," "Cooking Light" shares.

Will you be trying this out tomorrow morning? If you do, let us know what you think of the taste!
