I Caved…

Mama needed her coffee, folks. Someone was going to get hurt today otherwise…so I caved and I did exactly what the Whole30 gods say not to do…I made the Paleo coffee creamer that turns boring, black, bitter coffee into a sweet, dreamy, cup of “oh hells yes!”

Go ahead. Judge me. I was judging myself while cooking up this coffee creamer concoction, but once it hit my lips there was no turning back. Some of us have more self control than others; I have none.

On the bright side, it’s still dairy free, sugar free, and isn’t laced with chemicals like the bottles of stuff I hoarded before.

I followed this recipe, with a few changes.

8 dates (pitted & chopped) – boil in 1/2 cup of water for 10 minutes.

1 can Organic Coconut Milk

Dash of Cinnamon

1 Egg

Combine in a blender or food processor until smooth. Store in a mason jar or other airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge.

If you’re like me you’ll be a little skeptical when you start handling the dates, which resemble boogery raisins, but I promise you it’s worth it!!
