I saw a post for homemade Coffee Creamer, and got to thinking that perhaps I should give it a try! Most of you know I’ve been trying to decrease my sugar intake, albeit at times not very purposeful. I am trying to be very intentional about all things health! Sometimes it's overwhelming, which tells me I need to be one-stepping it. Master one, and on to the next!
I’ve tried the sugar free route… and threw out the container at one sip - gross! Let’s be real, artificial sweeteners are NOT good for anyone! There has to be something better!
To those who don’t know, I’m relatively new as a coffee drinker. As a teenager, my “job” was to make Mom’s coffee on the weekends. A job I thoroughly loved! Who doesn’t love the smell of coffee!? I intentionally made the process slower by taking my time to open the lid and breathe deep! To borrow a phrase from a friend, ‘oh my lands’ – it was the best smell ever! I’m sure the coffee’s taste was cut in half by how much time I spent smelling! While I loved the smell, I hated the taste!!
Here’s the recipe I followed, but then tweaked mine:
- Almond milk for coconut milk
- YLEO 1 drop of Peppermint
- Cocoa & Orange. Be Creative!
A few years before moving to the coffee capital of the world, my Sis-n-luv introduced me to what I am sure true coffeeians will claim is NOT coffee… rather, foo foo coffee! I take mine as a mocha with whip! In season, with Peppermint, and often with caramel sauce! And at home, with French Vanilla creamer!
I knew my home made coffee wouldn't wouldn't be as foo foo as I'm used to so I prepared myself for a different coffee experience. Clearly I was addicted to sugar. Now that I've changed my ways, I find the foo foo stuff is too sweet. This is my new fav! I like it better and I certainly feel better!
Overall… I am quite excited about this new adventure! It’s most definitely a step in the right direction!
Please excuse me while I enjoy my second cup!
