I gave up traditional creamer in my coffee years ago. I was tired of the extra calories and sugar. When I stopped drinking dairy milk, I tried unflavored non-dairy milks, but I just didn’t think they added anything to my morning cup of joe. I do allow myself to indulge sometimes (requesting soy milk in the coffee house…not that that makes it any healthier), but it’s actually really easy to make coffee creamer at home that can satisfy these occasional sweet cravings.
