I drink coffee. A lot of it. I was happily chugging heavy cream with my coffee for a good long while, giving nary a thought to just how much heavy cream I was chugging.
Yeah. That probably wasn’t my best plan. I kind of have a “thing” for heavy cream.
A refresher visit to A New Atkins for a New You reminded me, we’re only looking at about an ounce and a half of heavy creamer a day, at least on induction. For me, that was just a few cups of coffee away! I have tried both unsweetened almond milk and unsweetened coconut milk in my coffee, but neither really flipped my switch as a low carb coffee creamer.
However, mixing the coconut milk with heavy cream–sort of like “coconut milk helper”–tastes good, still makes a rich cup of coffee, lends itself well to flavoring with extracts, and helps the heavy-cream-loving crowd slow down a little.
Not that I would know anything about that… Ahem.
- Mix the ingredients and leave in the fridge. You can add extract or sweetener to your low carb coffee creamer for whatever flavorings you want.
I love to add vanilla extract, and sometimes a smidgen sugar-free chocolate syrup when I'm mixing it all together. Heaven!
