Coffee creamer without the cream!

Amaretto Coffee Creamer ~vegan~ 4 ingredient coffee creamer, so simple to make!

Instead of buying coffee creamer, make your own in two seconds flat!  Ok…maybe a little more than that, but not much!

Most of the non-dairy creamers found in grocery stores are a toxic soup of ingredients.  Although they claim to be non-dairy, many are made with dairy derivatives and a whole laundry list of chemicals.

Here is an example:

Water, Sugar, Corn Syrup, Palm Oil, Contains 2% Or Less of Each of The Following: Sodium Caseinate* (A Milk Derivative), Dipotassium Phosphate, , Natural and Artificial Flavors, Mono and Diglycerides, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Carrageenan, Salt.

This recipe calls for 4 ingredients.  4, that’s it!

 I mixed pure vanilla and almond extract to create an amaretto flavor, but use whatever suits your taste buds!  Peppermint, raspberry, plain Jane vanilla, cinnamon,  chocolate, pumpkin, chai spice, hazelnut, coconut….

There are endless possibilities for flavor combinations!

    It is really difficult trying to find a non-dairy milk that doesn’t contain so many toxic, as you rightly called them, ingredients, so I really appreciate this recipe. I think the photography is excellent as well, you have made me want to drink these off the page. No more black coffees for me.
