Sick of serving boring old tea or coffee to clients when you greet them? Or maybe your spa or clinic prides themselves on having a lengthy and exciting beverage menu? Whatever the reason, we’ve put together our top colourful and fabulous drink choices to delight your guests, complement your treatments and zhoosh up your waiting room. All tasty, beautiful and sugar-free!
Nowadays, if you aren’t thinking about how inner health ties into outer beauty, you’re behind the eight ball. So why not serve something that will give your clients some added health benefits in addition to the brilliant exterior service you’re about to provide them? We guarantee they will adore the thought behind the beverage.
There are a number of highly popular ‘latte’ options out there, far removed from your favourite foaming dose of caffeine, that both taste delicious and offer a dose of health to boot. Our favourites of these brightly coloured drinks include:
Tumeric Latte – often referred to as the ‘Golden Latte’ for its bright yellow hue, turmeric is thought to contain powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, immune-modulatory, neuroprotective, and antimicrobial properties, aiding in anti-ageing and stimulating natural antioxidant enzyme production, digestive support, joint support and much more.
Matcha – has been incredibly popular for a while now, and it’s not hard to see why. Matcha has up to 137x the antioxidants of regular green tea, plus up to 10x the nutritional content. Its leafy green foam may be off-putting to some at first, but it has a delicious, subtle green-tea taste and creamy texture when combined with milk.
Mermaid Latte – tasting just like a chai latte (but healthy!) the Nutra Organics Mermaid Latte is a shockingly blue bev that will delight your clients immediately. The powder blend is packed with sea minerals, blue superfoods and adaptogenic herbs, plus Ayurvedic chai spices, creamy coconut milk, and sweetened with manuka honey.
Beetroot Latte – gorgeous pink in colour, beetroot lattes are brilliant for detoxifying and boosting energy. As good a health kick as any, beets are high in vitamin C, fiber, potassium and folate, and many are combined with turmeric, factoring in their benefits too. Beetroots, along with all other deep purple vegetables, are high in anthocyanins; an antioxidant demonstrated in research to improve brain function, longevity, and even aid in the prevention of cancer and dementia.
Infused Water – much more than regular sparkling water, Madame Dry’s range is infused with botanicals; lavender for anxiety reduction and the promotion of restful sleep, or rose for digestion aid, calming properties and stress reduction. Water is lightly spritz and filtered through crystals to invite various energy transferrals.
Collagen – how about amplifying your anti-ageing treatments from the inside with a collagen drink? There are plenty on the market in powder form, but others like Beauty Chef have delicious-tasting liquid options that are much quicker to prepare for clients, and can be served as a shot or mixed into juice or water. Their Collagen Inner Beauty Boost boasts a tasty berry flavour and is easy to combine with just about anything.
Pairing with your skincare – this can be a fun and memorable exercise if your skincare contains fruits or botanicals that can be paired with your beverages. For example, if you’re performing a facial that incorporates skincare with berries in it, how about serving some fresh berries with your drink? Or product ranges containing lime could be served with lime-infused water. The options are endless!
