Hmmm 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. OK maybe it is just the caffeine, but I love it. My hubby never drank it until we had baby girl and now he drinks more then me. He used to “need” it because she would wake up a few times at night, but now we are past that stage so now I think he is just addicted. Since you know caffeine is a drug and all. A very happy delicious drug. Unless your drinking it in sugary, full of chemicals 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).
Today 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 and half for the coconut milk if you can tolerate dairy just fine. You can read in this post here why we gave up dairy. My husband can’t eat it due to Ulcerative Colitis and it gives me arthritis and acne (unless it is raw milk than I have no problems). 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. Shake it up and enjoy those fat chunks. They will melt in the hot coffee.
How do you like your morning cup of joe?
