I'm a black coffee kinda girl.
I wasn't always though.
I used to take double cream with extra caramel syrup in my iced coffee.
But once I started cutting out dairy and sugar, I couldn't have those things anymore.
Over time my taste buds didn't crave the sweet flavors the way they used too,
and I started drinking black coffee.
I should also note that I've been a barista for 5+ years, and so finally being able to taste the actual coffee notes without sugar masking them was a nice change.
Also, my fellow baristas could finally stop judging me ;)
All that being said, I don't drink coffee everyday and when I do it feels like an indulgence, and sometimes you just want some creamy sweetness with an indulgence ya feel?
So I made some creamer with no dairy or refined sugar..
and it is the bomb diggity.
It will last for two weeks in the fridge.
1 can unsweetened full fat coconut milk
4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Blend all ingredients together until smooth and enjoy with a quality cup of coffee :)
