Paleo Friendly Coffee Creamer Recipe

Going back strict paleo has me missing one thing: the organic grass-fed half & half I'd been having in my coffee. Since going paleo over a year ago I've searched and searched and just never found anything else I love in my coffee.

I decided to resort again to trying to make my own. 



1 can coconut milk (the carton just won't do it)
1 teaspoon Saigon Vietnamese cinnamon
1 teaspoon organic vanilla
1 teaspoon raw local honey (optional)



Blend all ingredients well in your blender. Store in refrigerator (the cinnamon tends to settle so you need to stir before use). I use 1 to 3 tablespoons per cup. Depending on cup size.


Note: this won't whiten as much as half & half or regular creamer you may be used to.

I've been playing around with this basic recipe. Sometimes adding an extra teaspoon of cinnamon or vanilla. Or leaving out the honey. Once I tried nutmeg as well. It's not half bad! Much better than other coconut creamers I've tried. I think I've found my replacement for half & half!

What do you put in your coffee??
