The healthy drink trend of last year is still going strong, not only filling our instagram feeds with mouth-watering concoctions, but also satisfying our stomachs with all of the nutrients we need to take on the heavy workload.
Cool down with a pint of Kombucha or indulge in a nutrient-packed shake to fuel your ambitions, here are the best healthy drinks to indulge in this summer — and where to find them in Lan Kwai Fong.

Latte Lover at Nood Food
Hong Kongers can’t live without coffee, which is why we should sip on healthier alternatives that give us more than just a caffeine fix. The Latter Lover (HK$68) at Nood Food has everything you need to feel the rush and soak up some nutrients too. Black coffee is cold-brewed slowly (for about 16 hours) and blended with almonds and dates for a low-acidic concoction that’s full of flavour — and antioxidants.

Turmeric Milk at Genie Juicery
Perhaps a steaming hot drink might not sound like the most quenching concoction on a summer day but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. Along with a variety of juices, Genie Juicery also happens to make one of the best turmeric milk (HK$30) we’ve had. With soy milk, cold-pressed turmeric, honey and chai sprinkles, this cup of golden goodness fights inflammation and boosts the immune system.
