So one thing I love is Coffee Mate Creamer...well that isn't part of the Eat Clean Diet (regular sugar is a no-no) so today I just used Almond Breeze Vanilla milk and as it did take away the bitterness of the coffee it just wasn't my coffee mate...so in looking for a clean version of creamer I have to thank Tiffany over at The Gracious Pantry for her wonderful version of coffee creamer.
Clean Eating Coffee Creamer
makes 5 generous (1/4 cup servings)
1 1/4 cup soy milk (or almond milk, or even milk I am guessing)
3 tsp of pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp of extract of your choice (see note)
2 tbsp of honey (I may do this a little less next time)
1/2 tsp of xanthan gum (I actually left this out, it's to thicken it)
Flavor options: extra vanilla extract, almond extract, orange extract or any other extract as long as it's clean.
1) in a blender mix all ingredients until well blended.
2) Pour in a container of choice (I found my italian dressing bottle fit it perfect, yes it was cleaned REALLY well) and keep it in the fridge.
VERDICT: well I dumped the container of coffee mate down the drain...This was really good. I used almond milk and all vanilla extract and it taste like the sweet cream creamer I had in the fridge...oh and a major plus, it's lower in calories than the stuff you buy in the store. The stuff I had was like 50 calories per 1 tbsp (and let's face it if you want creamer usually you don't use just 1 tbsp) and this is like 50 calories for 1/4 cup...thank you Tiffany
