Homemade Flavored Creamer

 

I know a lot of ladies are used to having their coffee or tea with flavored creamer and giving it up was a hard thing to do for a Trim Healthy Mama… BUT you don’t have to give it up!! In fact, it’s so super easy to make your own!!! Not only is it easy but the ingredients are simple, without all the junk we don’t need in it!!

 

Homemade just tastes so much better anyway! This is something I have learned, especially while doing Trim Healthy Mama, homemade is the way to go! You don’t have to make things from scratch but most of the time it’s not much more effort put forth to make it at home!

 For this homemade creamer you have basically have three or four ingredients.  How simple is that!  Make sure you are using good quality flavorings!  Here is an affiliate link to a great vanilla:Rodelle Pure Vanilla Extract, 8-Ounce

There are so many wonderful options to play with… chocolate peppermint, salted caramel, white chocolate, vanilla hazelnut, coconut, etc etc.  Try it out!  Also, go check out this store.. (I’m not an affiliate with them but I have, use and love their flavors! Bakto Flavors or you can try a six sample set from my affiliate link at Amazon:Bakto Flavors – Natural Flavors & Extracts – PICK YOUR OWN FLAVORS – Box of 6

Also, a friend of mine (Michele Miller) reminded me, that if you are an essential oil user (Good Quality that is digestible only) and feel comfortable using it in your creamer, you can add a drop or two of essential oil to great awesome flavor that way. 

     And just store in a glass jar or container, keep in the fridge, and it should last at least a week or two or however long it takes to drink it up!!  Note** this is figured for 8 servings… so 2 tbps of either heavy whip (for an S) or half & half (for an E) will fit into your Trim Healthy Mama plan!  You can do this with coconut milk or almond milk as well if you have a dairy allergy.  Really the options are endless!!

Now tell me… do you take your tea or your coffee with cream?
