We all know what it is like, stumbling around the kitchen first thing in the morning and preparing your coffee. You reach for the sugar and then swing open the refrigerator to grab the creamer. Some people find that while breastfeeding (or at many other times in their life) that they can't tolerate dairy the way they used to.
I have many friends and clients who have gone wheat free and dairy free who find it difficult to find a good coffee creamer. They miss lattes and creamy coffee. I don't blame them! I love my creamy latte's!
There are dozens of dairy free coffee creamer recipes out there & I've tried quite a few of them. None of them tasted very creamy, they made my coffee and tea more watery than anything. After much trial & error-- I came up with a delicious (might I add nourishing) coffee creamer.

This recipe (pictured) is for making chai tea lattes. I thoroughly enjoy making myself a nice chai latte, picking up the latest book I've been working on, and curling up on my lounge chair. There are many different ways to flavor your creamer!
