You guys I have a confession to make…. I am addicted to coffee creamer! It’s really really bad, I cannot bring myself to tell you how many cups I have a day LOADED with artificial creamer. The good new is I have had the worst cold of my life for the last 10 days, and when I am sick I hate coffee….. So I haven’t had too much for the last 10 days and I feel like I have kicked that bad habit to the curb ( YAY). Now that I am feeling better I still like my warm cup of coffee in the morning, more for cozy sake then actual NEED but I wanted to find a creamer option that still tasted good without being terrible for me!

This recipe tastes amazing and is super healthy for you.

Healthy Almond Coffee Creamer

6 dates

warm water

1.5 cups of unsweetened almond milk

1 tsp of almond extract

2 tbs of softened coconut oil

1/2 tsp cinnamon

pinch of salt

In a bowl full of warm water soak your dates for 5 min until softened then remove pits and add to a blender with 1/2 cup of new warm water. Blend until a paste forms. Next add your remaining ingredients and continue blending for 3-5 min, until smooth. Store in an air tight container for up to 4 days.

I use a good helping of this in my coffee in the A.M and some coconut sugar to sweeten it a little more. You could also top with another sprinkling of cinnamon as well.
