If you've ever been a fan of "The Oprah Winfrey Show," or O, The Oprah Magazine, there's no doubt that the annual list of Oprah's Favourite Things has always been a holiday highlight to look forward to. 

The list always includes some of The Big O's hand-picked items that are guaranteed to win at the holiday gifting game, and this year you'll find curated products celebrating small businesses, women-owned brands, and items created by people of colour. 

One standout pick is the SuperLatte Starter Kit from Clevr Blends, the female-founded beverage company that counts Meghan Markle and Kim Kardashian among its high profile fans. To celebrate its inclusion in the iconic holiday gift guide, the brand is offering 20 percent off the bundle when you use the code OPRAH at checkout.

The details

Beloved by both Oprah and Meghan Markle (the Duchess of Sussex even invested in the company last year), the lattes are available in four delicious flavours that include matcha, chai, coffee, and golden milk. The SuperLatte Starter Kit lets you choose two flavours, and includes a milk frother to make blending a breeze. 

As Oprah shared on the Oprah Daily site, "My neighbour Meghan (yes, that one) introduced me to this woman-led wellness brand. Not a day goes by without me sipping on the golden latte from this kit, which also comes with chai latte mix and a little frother. You can add the mixes to smoothies for a flavor boost, too."

All Clevr SuperLattes are 100% vegan, have 500 million heat-safe probiotics, no refined sugar, and 1000mg of adaptogens (Ashwagandha, Lion’s Mane and Reishi). Simply add water to the blend of your choice, and you’ve got a delicious drink that’s packed with powerful probiotics, adaptogens, and superfood ingredients.

I was lucky enough to try out the line of Superfood lattes earlier this year, so read on for my thoughts on whether or not they live up to the hype. 

First impressions

I’ve tried other adaptogenic coffee alternatives in the past and wasn’t a huge fan of their flavour, so I was initially a little skeptical of how the ones from Clevr Blends might taste. From the first sip of Chai SuperLatte though, my fears were cast aside.

I found the drink to be incredibly rich with just the right amount of spice (although my partner said he found it a little heavy on the ginger) and with a velvety smooth consistency.

I followed the instructions on the bag and added four ounces of hot water to three tablespoons of the latte mix. I then blended it in a mug with a milk frother before topping it off with an additional four ounces of hot water. All told, it took me about 30 seconds to assemble — a fraction of the time that it normally takes to make a cup of pour-over coffee or brewed tea.

Once opened, the brand recommends keeping the latte blends in the fridge for optimal freshness, so I’ve been slowly working my way through both the chai and matcha flavours. Since each bag has enough for 14 servings, two bags will last me about a month, with each serving ringing in at just $2.43 CAD a cup.

Does it live up to the hype?

It’s been a couple of months since I began incorporating Clevr Blends into my morning routine, and unlike after drinking coffee, I haven’t experienced any of the jitters or anxiety throughout the day that often follow a strong brew. They were also given the seal of approval from my naturopath, who has me on a fairly strict gluten- and dairy-free diet, so it’s a worry-free way to start my day.

I’ve tried making both hot and iced lattes and found them to be equally as delicious, though I prefer the spicy chai over the mellow matcha flavour. I personally wasn't a huge fan of the earthy turmeric latte, but who am I to deny its proven health benefits
