You all know how much I love coffee creamer…
I knew this was going to be a big struggle for me with clean eating—which starts tomorrow, BTW! So I looked up recipes online and it’s actually pretty easy to make!!
I used this pin for a basis but did not follow the ingredients exactly. I used half and half instead of soy milk—but I really want to try it with almond milk next time.
I also did not have any xantham gum in the house (ummm who does?!) Where can I find this in the grocery store?
This recipe is sweetened with honey—so no sugar involved. I am finding that honey is actually a wonderful sweetener—but has calories, of course.
The only question I have is: how do you know if an extract is “clean”? I have so much to learn!
The verdict was—I like my coffee creamer to have more flavor. Next time, I will use more flavoring. I made enough to get me through the week. With a packet of Stevia, my coffee was definitely bearable! I can’t wait to keep experimenting until I find just the right amounts of each ingredient—and the I will share my recipe with you all.
Points wise, this was 1 point + for 1 tbs. or 2 points + for 3 tbs. About the same as regular coffee creamer. I’m sure I could lower the points values by using skim milk—I might give that a try too.
Do you have a coffee creamer recipe?
