Good Evening, Readers! Today I want to post a quick recipe I learned about. One of my friends recently shared some information with me from her 21Day Fix food plan, and I thought I would pass it along to you! She said that the average person (who uses cream in their coffee) consumes roughly 25,550 calories/year from coffee creamer alone! That averages out to 7.3 additional pounds per year simply from the sugar and fat in our coffee creamer! When I read those numbers I was stunned. I am definitely a person that likes sugary sweet coffee. The Caramel Macchiato flavors, the Girl Scout Cookie flavors, etc.
So, when my friend sent her 21-day fix recipe to me, I had to put my own twist on it. I’ve been trying my new version of the recipe for two weeks now in my morning coffee, and I have to tell you I absolutely love it!
Here’s what I do:
In a bowl mix 3-4 tsp Coconut Oil with 4-5 drops of Vanilla extract and 3-4 tsp water. Whisk together thoroughly. Your mixture will have the consistency of honey. DO NOT put this in the fridge. Coconut Oil solidifies at cooler temperatures, so make sure you keep this on your counter if you make a larger batch. The amount above can be split in 2 nicely and used for 2 cups of morning coffee. If you make a larger batch, simply put a lid on your Tupperware container or else use plastic wrap on your regular bowl.
When adding the mixture to your hot coffee, it will melt and will make your coffee much sweeter! If you don’t like your coffee very sweet you can use less of the above mixture. I hope you enjoy and I’d love to hear if you have other recipe ideas for coffee creamer! Have a fantastic evening & remember to Seize The Day!
