PALEO Salted Caramel Coffee Creamer Recipe

I have a very strong attachment to my coffee creamer. I look forward to my hot cup of coffee first thing in the morning with just the right amount of creamer.  It is an integral part of my morning ritual! 

I love playing with different ideas and recipes for creamers. My hubby and I started doing bulletproof coffee several months back and that’s one that he does on a fairly regular basis. Truth be told…it doesn’t take long for me to start missing my creamer! 

Inspired by my coffee creamer addiction and a rainy day…here’s my latest recipe try…I’m a HUGE salted caramel fan and I thought this turned out pretty awesome!


INGREDIENTS 

  • 4 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk


DIRECTIONS

  1. Bring coconut sugar and water to simmer in medium sauce pan. Stir continuously to avoid burning. Once mixture thickens a bit to a syrupy consistency, REMOVE FROM HEAT.
  2. Add vanilla, sea salt and about 1/3 of the coconut milk. Stir well and let mixture cool for several minutes. 
  3. Combine Caramel mixture with remaining coconut milk in a large jar. Mix well. Make sure all the coconut milk is melted into the mixture…since it is a full-fat coconut milk you might have to heat it up just enough that it will mix in well and not result in a lumpy creamer!
  4. Store in fridge in sealed jar up to 1 week. Shake or stir before using as the coconut milk will separate. 
  5. Enjoy!! 

Homemade Vanilla Coconut Coffee Creamer 

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!


Ingredients:

  • 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.

Enjoy!!

xoxo,
Jess
