I’m not a coffee addict, but I take delight in sipping my cup of joe with my breakfast every single day. With the convenience of my K-cups and Nespresso frother, I have my coffee in a snap whenever I want it. However, I can’t drink my coffee without the usual add-ons.
In an effort to ditch the unhealthy stuff in my pantry, I had to look for better options to sweeten my coffee and coffee creamer.
I eradicated white sugar as well as brown sugar. I first used organic Agave nectar but after a few weeks I discovered organic Stevia. I now use Agave nectar and or raw honey for baking and as syrup when I make whole wheat pancakes instead of the usual syrup. Stevia is a multi-purpose natural sweetener that is sweeter than sugar and it is actually perfect for those managing their calorie intake and blood sugar. I usually add 1 packet to my coffee and it’s perfect.
It’s been a year since I was introduced to a healthier alternative to the usual coffee creamer. After years of switching back and forth between half and half and liquid coffee creamers, and experimenting with almond milk, rice milk, soy milk as add-ons to my coffee, So Delicious Coconut Milk Creamer is now a mainstay. It comes in different flavors but I prefer the Original because of the minimal sugar content.
I have to admit however, that nothing beats the taste (with coffee) of what we universally come to know as the traditional coffee creamer. I simply love that taste in my coffee but sadly, a healthier option is the only way to go for me. A little sacrifice goes a long way. My experimentation with almond milk, rice milk, as well as hemp milk was only for a short time because I simply didn’t like the taste with coffee. They are instead the perfect partner for my muesli.
I’m not saying that the So Delicious Coconut Milk Creamer is not delicious. Don’t get me wrong, because it is (but not as yummy as the usual creamer) with the slightest hint of the taste of coconut of course. Isn’t it that some health experts say that coconut is healthy?
