I'm a teacher, so it pretty much goes without saying that coffee is my lifeblood.
And as much as I'd like to be able to drink it black (aka calorie free), I can't.
Of course, the creamers I like are full of sugar. And while I splurge every once in a while, on a daily basis, I'm aiming to be a bit more healthy.
I've been a convert to Silk unsweetened vanilla almond milk and the unsweetened coconut almond blend for a while now. It's fewer calories, and while I don't have an issue with dairy, I find that I feel a little bit better when I use that as opposed to skim. I also find it to be a bit more creamy.
So when I saw this in the store, I knew I had to try it.
I loved seeing the dairy, gluten and soy free label. While I don't need to be "free" of any of those things, I do like to watch my intake. And non - GMO is also a score.
It's fewer calories than traditional creamers, clocking in at 20 calories per tbsp. serving. For me, I do need to use 2 tablespoons but the ingredients are all readable so I feel ok about it.
It adds a nice creaminess to your coffee (or tea!), and a hint of sweetness from the vanilla.
I haven't seen it everywhere yet, but if you are a coffee lover, keep an eye out!
