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!!

    That looks yummy. Hope you get through the next weeks fast! Can’t wait for Baby Harper Willow!! I saw Starbucks has a coffee called Willow in the shop now . Have to taste it soon. If I can get there when they are brewing it. I’ll let you know☺️

  2. Hahaha I almost posted on your Ig and asked what you would be putting in your coffee that is sugar free? I didn’t want to discourage you at all so I didn’t. Lol I did a gluten free dairy free diet when my son was diagnosed with autism. We tried as a family to stick to it as best we could for Luke’s sake. It was hard , but I did feel a lot better that year as opposed toniw.

  3. Everyone knows their limits – I would have done the same :D

  4. I would have done the same, so don’t feel at all guilty for it! :)
