I'm a big coffee drinker. I drink a couple of cups of black coffee in the morning and towards the middle of the day, I love to slow down and enjoy a cup of coffee that's lightly sweetened with this healthy chocolate coffee creamer.

Coffee creamers that I find in the grocery come in such large bottles. It takes so long for me to finish them off. In fact, by the time I get half-way through the bottle, I'm always afraid that the coffee creamer may have gone sour or I'm tired of the flavor by then.

    I tried this and it was fantastic!!! I added 1/2 teaspoon of espresso powder to up the chocolate flavor. Truly the best part of my day when I get to add this creamer to my coffee. Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Marcia,
      We don’t have one yet but will add a vanilla creamer recipe to our list of recipes to work on.

      Thanks for the suggestion.

  2. Is the nutrient info correct? 1 gram is .23 of a teaspoon, which means one teaspoon of this product is 276 calories. Is that accurate? Or is that for the batch? Thanks!

    1. Hi Tamara,

      Thank you for your email. I went back to check on the calories and you’re right, it wasn’t very clear. Each tablespoon is 12 calories and I have updated the nutritional information to reflect it.

      Have a great weekend!

  3. I love this!!! My coffee was suffeeeing when I went dairy free until I found this. I prefer to use coconut milk from the can (it’s thicker and I prefer my creamers to be a little richer) but it’s fantastic!!

    This is perfect! I’m with you: if I buy a flavor, I’m over it before the bottle is half empty! This is a great solution and I can’t wait to try it!
