Healthy Flavoured Creamer
Good morning to you. First of all, I'm from Canada, and that is indeed how we spell flavour here! O.k, I'm glad that's out of the way!
We got back last night from a weekend away with just enough time to pack lunches, put away things from our travels, have a cup of tea and watch an episode of Bones.
The wedding we went to this weekend was such a refreshing event; not too traditional, but still beautiful and, most importantly, really reflected the people who were getting married and their tastes and true personalities.
At the reception they had a proper Irish céilí....which is basically like square dancing, except not always in a square...I don't know quite how to describe it except to say it was riotous and celtic, and great fun. So much fun.
Anyway, let's talk about creamer. Store bought coffee cream should make you gag a bit when you read the ingredients...and if it doesn't make you gag a bit you need food therapy of some sort. Corn syrup and partially hydrogenated oils should not be in coffee cream. They really shouldn't be in any food at all, but that's a whole different story.
So, my flavoured cream is truly a whole food idea, and it can be customized with whatever milk option you can drink, and to many, many flavours.
Get ready to be amazed.... :)

(Make more or less depending on how much creamer you would generally use within a week)
Some tips: You can add a few drops of honey or maple syrup to the steeping milk if you want it a little sweeter, you can also add extras like cinnamon, a pinch of salt, vanilla extract, or a pinch of cocoa powder. Perhaps don't add all those at once, but make some flavour combos that you think might work!
Can I just say that if you don't like cream in your coffee, you can make flavoured milk for your tea, or you can use a fruity tea to steeped with a milk alternative as a strait-up drink. I made the kids "strawberry milk" (almond milk steeped with strawberry tea), and they loooooved it! I have also steeped chai tea in my milk for a proper-ish chai tea latte.
Well, dear people, that's all I have to say for now! I hope everyone has a fine monday!
