    I am an avid coffee lover too. I drink my first, GUILT FREE cup with cream and sugar, and the rest of my coffee through out the day, I drink black. It took me awhile to get used to the taste, but sometimes I prefer it black:)

    Buy flavored coffee beans. This is how I weaned myself from using creamer.

    My standard coffee is chocolate-coffee. I make a regular cup with milk, and then add 1 tsp of cacao powder, and 2 tsps of Nesquik. I use three packets of sweeteners too but that's just me (gf likes it with two).

    Love it. This is the best combo I've ever come up with, and have been making multiple cups of it all day (decaf) for a few years now.

    Nesquik or Ovaltine in coffee is awesome, and very few calories for the amount you need to get a hint of chocolate that for me at least made sweetener unnecessary over time. :drinker:

    I don't like sweet coffee, but sometimes I'll put some coarse ground cacao nibs (I use a brand called Crio Bru) in with my coffee grounds. They're coarse enough to use in french press or cold brew.

    I use liquid sacarina. (Saccharine) I get it from Mercadona in Spain. Best sugar sub there is for flavour!

    I make bulletproof coffee by adding a 1/2 tsp peanut butter and a splash of coconut oil. I weaned myself off the sugar but do add hazelnut powdered creamer(IK the creamer isn’t very healthy) tastes really yummy and adds healthy fats. These calories hold me over until lunch.

    Good Italian Coffee, almond milk and stevia.

    There is a healthy creamer called nutpods there is no sugar in it and no artificial sweeteners either it's naturally sweet and it's whole 30 approved it taste just like coffee creamer but it's not overly super sweet but it's sweet enough naturally to me but if you want it sweeter you can put stevia in it I hope this helps

    I recently tried a creamer called Laird’s Superfood Creamer. It’s coconut milk dehydrated. Very little sweetness but it grows on you.

    I use a 1/4 cup fat free organic milk, with 1-2 Tbsp of the Torani Sugar Free coffee syrups. It tastes great and is only 44 calories for a 16 ounce coffee.
    On the weekends, I splurge and use a 1/2 cup of milk.

    I used honey and gradually weaned myself off. I had been using Splenda and it was causing issues health wise. i switched back to sugar then changed to honey then reduced and then eliminated in course of couple weeks. I also went from half and half to whole to 2% and now down to 1% milk. Skin doesn't do it for me but 1% much better than the cream in coffee. I also bought a frother for milk because it made coffee creamier to me than just the cold milk.

    I have a Stevia plant and the aftertaste is definitely a funky one.

    if you want your coffee to taste a little bit better but don't wanna add any badness into it like sugars, then why not try a bit of vanilla essence you can always throw in a bit of orange peel makes my coffee taste like Terry's chocolate orange, and as for the Stevia did you try drying out and blending it up into a green powder or did you throw a whole leaf in as the flavour differs in these methods.

    I could read people talk about their coffee All. Day. <3

    I usually just drink mine black. But if I'm going to add something it's 2T half and half. 40 calories and worth it.

    I add 1/3 of 11 oz container of PREMIER PROTEIN (high protein shake -vanilla) to my morning coffee. Great way to add protein and a host of vitamins and minerals.

    My daughter, who needs more caffeine some days, goes thru drive thru at Dunkin gets a shot of expresso over ice and then pours whole container in the cup.

    I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but a friend of mine uses caramel premier protein shakes as her creamer to make iced coffee.

    ^^ This! I followed WW for about a year or two and would often put Premier Protein in my coffee as the creamer. My favorite was the caramel, but you could use vanilla or chocolate, depending on your preference. I found that using the protein shakes meant I didn't need to add sweetener to my coffee. You can also have Starbucks put a shot of espresso in a large (venti) cup with ice and then pour the protein shake over it.

    I don't typically put anything in my coffee, but every once in a while I get a little bit wild and throw 1/8 of a cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and a shake of cinnamon in there.

    Try a pour over with light to medium roast beans. That'll have a natural sweetness (and more caffeine) and you can drink it over a day since there's no milk to keep from going bad. Sometimes I leave my 2nd cup out overnight and drink it in the morning; I'm super addicted to coffee and I drink about 16 ounces a day this way.

    The pour over technique is easy and cheap, and Blue Bottle's pour over tutorials are quite good. I like to use mineral water and beans roasted within 2 weeks to enhance the taste. I have a huge sugar addiction and used to drink coffee with cream and sugar but for the last 10 years or so I've vastly preferred coffee prepared this way. My partner calls it "coffee-flavored water" but I'm a caffeine junkie so I find it heavenly :)
