You’ll Need This: 1 Can Coconut Milk, 2 T. Coconut Oil; 1 Egg (optional, but read below); 2 t. Cinnamon, 1 T. Agave Nectar or more to taste, 1 t. Pumpkin Pie Spice
Put It Together Like This: Blend together in a Magic Bullet or blender. Pour into quart jar or something with a lid. Store in fridge for about a week. If you want to you can pour it through a sieve to make sure there are no floaties.
Variations: Obviously, are endless. Here’s some ideas: Pumpkin (couple tablespoons); Nutmeg; extracts (like vanilla); cocoa.
Sweetener Options: Stevia, raw honey.
Eat Like You Mean It
Personally: YOU WON’T NEED ANY OF THIS: Corn syrup solids, vegetable oil (partially hydrogenated coconut or palm kernel, hydrogenated soybean oils), sodium caseinate, dipotassium phosphate, mono and diglycerides, sodium aluminosilicate, artificial flavor, annotta color.
These ingredients are in almost all coffee creamers you buy. I quit drinking soda and I don’t microwave my lunch anymore, my next Paleo baby step is regarding enjoying my coffee. I like creamy coffee sometimes. Sometimes I like it black (especially with cheesecake~!), but putting crap/chemicals/dairy into my coffee just seemed like that one thing that I’m going to continue to do sometimes cuz I like creamy coffee. However, I found some great ideas and made some this weekend that is satisfying my need to those creamy coffee days (you know, the ones without cheesecake).
Please note that this recipe does contain a raw egg, so proceed at your own risk. You can try the recipe without the egg, however, if you are wanting the consistency to look more like “cream”, the egg really helps with that. Lecithin in the egg also keeps the coconut oil from separating and floating on the top of your coffee. Here’s an interesting article regarding the safety of eating raw eggs.

As in life, everything is optional, unless noted otherwise and then you can rate it under the life’s non-options (i.e. “air”).. I rarely measure anything. I love to eat. I’m not strict at anything (pull-ups, alcohol, or eating paleo) yet! I love food and I love to feed people and I want to live until I die. And I want you to too!!
