Homemade Coffee Creamer… For Your Perfect Holiday!

Homemade coffee Creamer

Oh how I loved my Coffee-Mate (or Starbucks!)… french vanilla, cinnamon,  Pumpkin Spice, Peppermint Mocha! Oh my!  They tasted so delicious and I felt that they got me into the Fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Spirit!  They were special drinks offered only during this special time of the year, and it IS my FAVORITE time of the year!

I was heartbroken when I had to give them up!

Gone were the days of cozy coffee’s… and artificial toxic ingredients.

 

These highly addictive foods, such as Starbucks Pumpkin Latte’s, Coffee-Mate creamers or Mc Donalds French Fries, for that matter,  are trigger foods.  They are foods that can change our brain chemistry to make us crave them more! They are filled with highly addictive and artificial ingredients.  There is nothing REAL about them and sadly, or brains can’t tell the difference.

Homemade Holiday Coffee Creamer

Thankfully, we have options!  I am loving my cozy homemade coffee creamer, that gets me into the holiday spirit. When its cold outside, I want something to warm me up (those days are far and few between here in So. Cali, but they happen!).

I’ve come up with a few delicious and whole coffee flavors that I just know you will love.  You can kick your Starbucks to the curb and try some of these awesome new recipes that only take a few minutes to make!

Ingredients
  • 1 cup whole milk (Organic, Raw)
  • 1 cup heavy cream (Orgainc, Raw)
  • 6 tablespoons pure grade B maple syrup (more or less depending on desired sweetness)
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 3 Tbs Raw Cacao

Notes from the Kitchen:

*I use Grade B maple syrup because it is in the rawest form, thus preserving its natural minerals.  Raw Honey can also be substituted for the maple syrup.

Even though the honey is being heated, I still like to use pure, raw honey in my recipes to make sure there are no unwanted additives.

Each of these creamers will last about 10 days in the refrigerator. (If you can keep from using them all up before then, that is.)
