Homemade Coconut Coffee Creamer
2 cups Silk Coconut milk
1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup or use 1 Tbsp. of Torani Sugarfree Coconut Syprup
1 tsp. almond extract
Place ingredients in blender and combine for 2-3 minutes.
This will leave a fluffy cream on top of your creamer- I usually scrape this off and immediately add it to my coffee for a coconut-y creamy latte.
Store in an airtight container for a week to 10 days.
Shake well before each use.
Want a flavor that is a bit different? Instead of almond extract use your favorite extract like hazelnut, coffee, raspberry, vanilla, or chocolate. Add cinnamon by first dissolving it in a bit of heated milk then stirring into the rest of mixture.
If you are using a sweetened variety of coconut milk you may wish to cut back on the maple syrup to keep it a bit healthier.
