Safe Swap: Coffee Creamer

Ditch & Switch •• Coffee Creamer

I love drinking a nice hot cup of black coffee… but I know that’s not always most popular.

Sadly, the ingredients in the most popular coffee creamers are pretty atrocious, so I’ve found much safer solutions for you!

Take a look at these…
 
  • Coffee Mate

    Water, Sugar, Vegetable Oil (High Oleic Soybean and/or High Oleic Canola), Micellar Casein, Artificial Flavor, Mono- and Diglycerides, Dipotassium Phosphate, Cellulose Gel, Cellulose Gum, Carrageenan.

  • International Delight

    Water, Cane Sugar, Palm Oil, Sodium Caseinate (a milk derivative) ,Dipotassium Phosphate, Artificial Flavors, Mono and Diglycerides, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Polysorbate 60, Carrageenan, Salt.

Artificial flavoring is derived from inedible sources, like petroleum. The problem with natural and artificial flavors on a nutritional label is that you have absolutely no idea what you’re consuming.

 

 Some scientists have presented evidence that carrageenan is highly inflammatory and toxic to the digestive tract, and claim that it may be reponsible for colitis, IBS, rheumatoid arthritis, and even colon cancer.

 

And seriously… who wants a dose of canola oil or polysorbate 60 with their morning coffee?

Swap it out, my friends!

✔️ Organic heavy whipping cream, or homemade cashew mylk

✔️ Dash of cinnamon, pumpkin spice, or cacao

✔️ Blended with a little coconut oil until frothy

✔️ Blended with some spices and pumpkin purée

✔️ Maple syrup or raw honey

 

✨ Or make it fancy with one of these ✨
