But What Do I Put In My Coffee?

For 27 years I have been teaching my clients how to eat dairy and gluten free and there are always a few questions that come up (usually with a panicked look!)…

Can I still drink wine?  Yes

Can I still eat Chocolate?  Yes

What in the world do I put in my coffee?  My best advice has been almond milk, and advised them how to make it.

Then a few years ago SO products came on the market.  While far cleaner in ingredients than most creamers it’s not perfect.  It contains  GUAR GUM), ORGANIC DRIED CANE SYRUP, NATURAL FLAVORS, COLORED WITH TITANIUM DIOXIDE, DIPOTASSIUM PHOSPHATE, CARRAGEENAN.  NOT stuff we want in our bodies!

Then someone posted on Facebook a recipe.  I followed the link and found a cool website;

Here’s the recipe;

Coconut Milk Creamer

I put a can of Thai Kitchen coconut milk into the food processor, added one organic egg and 2 tablespoons of Tropical Traditions coconut oil and a teaspoon of vanilla.

Blend all of the above in the food processor or blender.

It’s great coffee creamer and makes great whipped cream…use it on berries!!

    Aren’t eggs still dairy, even if they are organic?

    • eggs are only considered “dairy” is because they are sold in the same section of the grocery store. They have no lactose, no whey…in other words they don’t come from a cow!

        So, eggs are not dairy, but not vegan either? Ok. I guess that makes sense… Chicken broth is not dairy, and not vegan either. Thanks. 🙂
