Coffee creamer is one of those things I have a very hard time not having. I LOVE the thought of getting up and having that first cup of coffee in the morning. There’s just something comforting and inviting about it. Anyone with me on this?
So, rather than give it up altogether, I like trying healthier ways of still having my coffee the way I like it, sweat and creamy.
Typically what I do instead of the regular flavored coffee creamer you buy at the store (hello salted caramel!) is just half & half & honey. It’s good! And people…I take my coffee seriously. When I say it’s good, I’m being genuine. 🙂
I thought I’d try something different however. I love the idea of making your own ______ (fill in the blank). So homemade coffee creamer it is!
If you like coconut…I mean real coconut, not just the artificial flavor, you will be a fan. And another thing I love…it’s SO simple!
- 1 can coconut milk (Full fat my friends! Do not be afraid!! It’s good for you!)
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup (go for the good stuff…real maple syrup. It’s more expensive, but it’s better for you and it tastes a million times better!)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
Put all of the above in a sealable jar, close it up and shake baby shake!! It’ll take a couple minutes to get everything good and mixed up. Then seal that puppy up and keep it in the fridge.
