As any caffeine junkie knows, coffee isn't something to be messed with. But that doesn’t mean you have to spring for a $6 latte every time you want something better than drip. There's an easy middle ground, and it starts with making your own healthy coffee creamer. These homemade coffee creamers will add more flavor to your morning joe than a splash of milk or half-and-half, without weighing it down with syrup and tons of sugar. Add one (or a few!) to your Sunday meal-prep routine for better brews all week.
Unless you’re one of the crazy few who doesn’t like salted caramel, this creamer is good to have on hand when you’re craving something sweet in the morning. First you make a caramel sauce—feel free to save a little for other uses—then you mix it with coconut milk to make it nice and creamy.
OK, now we’re talking super simple. This easy creamer has a longer does-not-include list than it does ingredients. There are only four of the latter—coconut milk, coconut sugar, salt, and vanilla bean—and it works for most special diets. You can drink it if you’re following a Paleo, vegan, or dairy-free diet.
