I'm a coffee addict. Given the lack of sleep I've endured these last few years, I honestly can't imagine life without java. I want to fully participate in my children's GFCF lifestyle, but haven't been able to give up milk-based creamer. I like to use flavored creamers because it makes a cup of coffee a real treat for me. Unfortunately, these are often loaded with fat, sugar, dairy and unpronounceable chemicals. So, I set off to make a healthier alternative. This is what I came up with.
Dairy Free Coffee Creamer
1 can coconut milk
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon sugar (or alternative sweetener)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in blender and mix until smooth. Refrigerate.
Note: You can adjust the cocoa powder and sugar amounts to taste.
