Healthy Creamers

Tons of folks love flavored creamers, but we all know that they are just not good for you. You can easily make your own and alleviate all the chemicals and preservatives in the store bought kind.

Here’s a good basic recipe that can be added to in order to make any flavored creamer that you want.  I use an egg in my creamers, but if you don’t like using raw eggs feel free to leave it out.  (You can buy pasteurized eggs if you want the added protein of the egg but are concerned about the safety of raw eggs.)

Basic recipe:
1 can unsweetened coconut milk (Do not use lite coconut milk, use the Real Thing. Organic is always your best best.
Thia Kitchen and Native Forest are great brands. Look for BPA free cans.
1 – 2 Tabs coconut oil

1 egg

Get out your trusty Immersion Blender and mix it all up.  That’s it!!

Add ins:
Vanilla extract
100% maple syrup
Coconut sugar
Peppermint extract
Almond extract
2 Tabs. Unsweetened puréed pumpkin
Pumpkin Pie spice
2 Tabs. Unsweetened cocoa powder
Stevia, Xylitol or other non chemical based sweetner

This recipe will keep in the fridge about 4 to 5 day. I use several large spoonfuls in my coffee because I like a creamy coffee. Just use the amount that suits your taste.
