Mmmm… warm, delicious coffee really gets my motor running in the morning. I don’t think it’s even the caffeine that does it… it’s more of the routine of once I finish this delicious coffee it’s time to act a fool and get stuff done. It’s very motivating to me. And sometimes, in the afternoon when I need some more motivation, I drink a half cup more.
Okay, maybe it is just the caffeine, but I love it.
My hubby never drank coffee until we had baby girl, and now he drinks more than me. He used to “need” it because she would wake up a few times at night, but now we are past that stage, so I think he is just addicted. Since, you know, caffeine is a drug and all. A very happy delicious drug. Unless you’re drinking soda – then its a bad drug. Or maybe I’m justifying my actions. But hey, studies have shown that coffee is healthy (checkout this article justifying my love for coffee).
I’m sharing our favorite homemade coffee creamer that you can make with dairy or dairy free to go in your cup of joe. It is naturally sweetened with honey, or you can leave it out (which is how I like it). You can also substitute cream or half & half for the coconut milk if you can tolerate dairy.
You can read here why we gave up dairy. My husband can’t eat it due to Ulcerative Colitis, and it gives me arthritis and acne. Of course, now when I slip (or can’t turn down a slice of pizza on the rare occasion), it makes baby girl spit up more. So, we just avoid it and we all feel way better.
- In a saucepan, lightly heat coconut milk and honey. Whisk until combined.
- Turn off heat and add vanilla and cinnamon.
- Pour into your coffee and rejoice.
- Refrigerate leftovers up to one week.
- Shake before use.
- If using coconut milk, it is normal for separation and fat to become chunky. Just shake it up and enjoy those delicious little bites. They will melt in the hot coffee.
