Non-Dairy Coffee Creamer - Natural & Rich!
I'm posting this here because I seem to remember a few people looking for an alternative.
My Dr. suspects I have too much internal inflammation so I'm trying to keep it low through nutrition and there are studies that indicate dairy as an inflammation culprit. I'm totally off dairy except for half and half in my coffee. I just can't do without it. So I did some research and came up with this recipe:
1 can (14oz.) coconut milk
2 oz. coconut oil
Combine the milk and egg in a blender. Start blending, add the oil slowly to emulsify. It should be thick and frothy. Once chilled, it will be more like thin whipped cream. Keep in the refrigerator up to a week and spoon into coffee.
It's very rich and creamy which is what I'm looking for. However, if you let your coffee cool, it will form a film on top and may separate a little.
This is not calorie friendly at 80 calories for two tablespoons but I'm willing to allow for it.
