Healthy Coffee Creamer Recipe


If you are a coffee junkie like me then you will be able to understand the dilemma I come across every morning in trying to make my refreshing cup o java. And that is all about the creamer. I love me some creamer, especially the french vanilla flavored kind, but my waistline isn't exactly a fan. So a friend of mine, who is a licensed dietitian, gave me some delicious recipes for creamer alternatives that have literally changed my whole coffee game. The one I use the most often is the French Vanilla recipe, but if I'm being completely honest it tastes more like a cinnabon to me than anything else, which is still ultimately fantastic! So here's how it works:

You want to grab a carton of your favorite Unsweetened Almond Milk. The particular brand I use is from Trader Joe's because I think it is delicious. Then I throw in 1 tbsp of ground cinnamon and 2 tsp of Vanilla Extract. Once you have placed the items into the carton, just shake um all up and let it sit overnight. It gives your coffee such an amazing flavor without any of the extra fat and preservatives found in regular creamer.

A word of warning for anyone set to try this yummy recipe, it will have a bit of a gritty texture as you go through the carton, since the cinnamon does pour out into your coffee with each use. To avoid the added cinnamon texture you can always substitute the group cinnamon with 2 cinnamon sticks. If you are more of the mocha loving kind of person, simply swap the ground cinnamon for 1 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder and voila, mocha madness!  



And just in case you were wondering, Josh made us the Trader Joe's pumpkin pancakes for breakfast this weekend and they were so super tasty. A delightful treat for a relaxing weekend! I would definitely recommend picking them up if you are ever out at your local Trader Joe's.

  1. Thanks Danielle! Hil and I finally stopped using all those creamers with hydrogenated oils, and found a creamer that just uses real cream & sugar. But we've been trying to get off the sugar, and so your recipe fills the bill!!

    By the way, your blog is beautiful, wonderfully written, informative and your sense of humor shows through. I wish you lots of luck with the blog! Love you, Ellen xoxo
