Is coffee part of your morning routine? Then try adding this non-dairy coffee creamer to the morning mix!
This non-dairy coffee creamer can be made in bulk that will last longer than most store-bought coffee creamers. In addition, it’s made with whole food ingredient powders that are easy to find, easy to make and taste delicious without adding anything artificial.
Store-bought vs. Homemade
Standard store-bought coffee creamers are typically made with various thickeners, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, and artificial flavors. While some of these ingredients are fine in small amounts, it’s not the best option for overall health for the long-term. Especially if you enjoy a daily cup of coffee with creamer.
This non-dairy coffee creamer is so simple to make. It’s also a good source of healthy fats from the powdered coconut milk, rich in nutrients from both the Fermented Maca Booster Powder and rice bran soluble (i.e. tocotrienols), and tastes delicious with powdered vanilla. Tocos isn’t a must-have in this recipe. However, it does contribute to the mineral content along with the maca, and it helps create a creamy texture.
What’s The Deal With Maca?
We’ve talked about maca before (Superseed Nut Butter, Beautifying Black Bean Brownies, Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl), but what exactly is it? Maca (mah-cah) is an adaptogenic root vegetable (from the broccoli family) grown in Peru.
The maca root is ground up into a fine powder that can be used in anything from this coffee creamer recipe to breakfast oatmeal, granola, cereals, desserts, smoothies, and baked goods. The powder can be easily mixed into anything you choose, and the best part is that you don’t need a large volume to get the desired taste or nutritional benefits.
Upon serving you can add a little bit of a sweetener of your choice — I recommend a small amount of honey or maple syrup to taste. This homemade non-dairy coffee creamer is delicious and because it’s a powder, it stays fresh much longer than its liquid counterparts.
