When you start to try and eat Paleo or whole 30, one of the scariest things is facing your morning coffee without your beloved creamer. This is how I survived whole 30 (without the coconut sugar to be compliant) but now put this EXACT creamer in my coffee every day.
I make (and store) my coffee creamer in a glass pyrex container with a tight lid. This lasts at least a week and a half in the fridge once you make it, but I prefer a pretty hefty scoop in my coffee so I usually make a new batch every sunday.
Yes, You can buy canned coconut cream, which would allow you to skip the step of putting the coconut milk in the fridge, but its generally more expensive and a little harder to find than coconut milk.
- 1 Tablespoon Organic Coconut Sugar
- 2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
- 1 can full fat Coconut Milk
- Place your can of UNOPENED coconut milk in the fridge overnight. In the morning or after about 12-14 hours, the cream from the coconut milk will rise to the top. Carefully scrape as much of the cream from the top of the coconut milk as possible, making sure not to get too much of the leftover clear milky liquid that remains in the can. Discard the remaining coconut milk or save for another recipe.
2. Add 1 tablespoon organic coconut sugar, and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon to the coconut cream.
3. Stir well to combine and keep in the fridge with a tight lid.
To make my coffee: Pour 8- 16 ounces hot coffee into a blender. (My gigantic cups hold about 16 ounces, most normal coffee cups will be about 8 ounces.) Scoop about one tablespoon of the creamer and drop it into the blender with the coffee. Blend on high for 15-20 seconds and it should turn into a creamy lighter brown color with a good layer of foam on top.
Remember, there is no refined sugar in this, it wont be NEAR as sweet as your bottled creamers. However, there are only 3 ingredients in this, and every single one of them has fantastic health benefits. Also, added bonus- you can pronounce every ingredient and there are no weird chemicals or thickeners.
Feel free to add more coconut sugar or cinnamon to this to suit your tastes.
