Coconut Coffee Creamer

You know those people who like to drink their coffee black? Yeah, I'm not one of those. ☕️  

I used to be super addicted to the classic coffee creamers and would never think of trying anything else in my coffee.  

I've started making my own now that I know that I was drinking straight sugar and partially hydrogenated oil (aka trans fat). No wonder I felt terrible an hour later!  

I've also struggled with store bought creamers lately since I'm breastfeeding and I'm virtually certain anything dairy hurts my 5 month old's stomach.

So HOLY CREAMER am I a happy lady.  

I just made my own dairy-free creamer and it has been nothing short of life changing!!

It's freaking delicious, only 5 ingredients and is dairy and refined sugar FREE!  

Guilt-free morning ritual, yes please!

I promise once you start using this, you'll be hooked too. Try it out and let me know what you think!
