French Vanilla Coffee Creamer: A Healthier Alternative

Happy Monday Everyone!

Pray everyone had a wonderful + restful weekend! 

This morning I wanted to share with everyone something I tried a few weeks back.

Now if you’re like me the first thing you do as soon as you get out of bed in the morning you go to the kitchen, turn on your coffee maker and make a fresh cup of coffee!  

Nothing beats the smell of that fresh aroma first thing when you wake up! Seriously… nothing! 

My perfect cup of coffee consist of a little bit of cream, just enough to change the color to a light brown.

Now I’ve tried using the healthy replacements for cream like almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk etc and they taste just fine, but when I’m looking for that perfect cup of coffee… I need the good stuff! 

Occasionally I crave to have a little extra flavour in my coffee, but after doing my research a while back on different coffee creamers and what they consist of it pretty much turned me away from ever using them again.

Never mind the added calories these imitation creamers have. They also consist of artificial flavours + sweeteners ( which means even more sugar) a ton of added preservatives and trans fats which can lead to increased cholesterol, heart disease and diabetes. 

Now I don’t know about you but that’s not what I want to wake up to first thing in the morning!

Still looking for a way to add flavour to my coffee (with much less harmful ingredients) one morning I remembered I had French vanilla extract sitting in my cupboard. I tried adding just a smidge to my cream then mixed it in with my coffee and guess what… it was amazing! 

It tasted just like any other creamer I had before! I was so excited to finally discover a healthier substitute! 

Not only is it healthier but there are lots of different flavours you can try too! Almond, vanilla, cinnamon and coconut just to name a few! 

I was so excited to discover this healthy substitute I wanted to share with all of you! 

There’s only a few simple steps but I promise it with completely change your coffee and you won’t have to feel guilty about it either!
