One thing that may be tricky when trying to eat healthy is trying to find a healthy alternative to typical powdered coffee creamers or those little processed individual liquid coffee creamers, which usually contain high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, and other crappy "non-food" additives and chemicals.
While I usually don't drink coffee at home and I prefer teas of all different types, I do like to drink coffee while traveling... it's sort a treat for me since I don't drink it at home.
But instead of loading up the coffee with lots of sugars and chemical-laden artificial creamers, what we've been doing is using a can of coconut milk as our coffee creamer and using stevia for the sweetener.
The coconut milk is a healthier alternative because of the healthy fats, specifically the medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) it contains, which support your immune system and are a type of fat calories that are readily used for energy.
Although my family thought it was a little unusual to use the coconut cream/milk as a coffee creamer, after they tasted it, everybody really liked it.
If you're a coffee drinker and you've been hooked on all of those artificial chemical-laden coffee creamer powders or liquids, give coconut milk a try for a much healthier alternative!
Make sure to shake up the can of coconut milk before opening it, as some of the water can separate from the coconut cream. Also, if room temperature is below the mid-70's F, the coconut cream will harden a little, but putting the whole can in a bowl of warm water before opening it and then shaking it will mix the cream back up.
