Coffee creamer

I've noticed that a huge downfall for me is coffee creamer. What type of creamer do you use?

    I drink it black. But when I didn't, I just used whatever dairy or nondairy milk or cream that was on hand. No sugar. No sweetened "creamer." Drink better coffee.

    I don't.

    I only have 2-3 tbsp. a day and I love it soooo much I just make it fit into my calories, I am completely obsessed with hazelnut creamer! Sorry I am not much help! You could try sugar free syrup and skim or 1% milk maybe?

    I agree with @NovemberSkye . I slowly reduced my sweet coffee creamer and switched to just plain cream. I'm trying now to slowly reduce the cream and hope to be able to drink it black soon. It takes time though. Good luck!

    I've never been a big coffee drinker but I have become rather fond of iced coffee. The first time I tried it I was given some with international delight creamer and it was love at first sip. I have been experimenting with making my own without all the sugar and additives. I found that 18% cream with some sugar free syrup and extra sucralose makes a lovely substitute but is about the same number of calories. My next effort will be with 10% cream to see how that works out. I still only use about 1 tablespoonful of creamer in a cup once a day which works out to about 30 calories. As others have said maybe it's just something worth working into your daily calorie allowance?

    I use heavy cream. Usually 1-2T per 20oz of coffee.

    I can so relate. I gave up trying to find an alternative. I now only have 1 cup a day with 2 Tbl sugar free creamer.

    I drink 2oz of Coffeemate Natural Bliss Sweet Cream flavor in 3 cups of coffee every morning.

    Half and half. About an ounce per cup. Generally drink 4 cups per day. Also enjoy coffee black, but it has to be good coffee...

    I've tried to give up half and half, but it's still a struggle. I add about 80-120 extra calories with half and half, but I am so hooked on the flavor and coffee is so crucial to my day that I have sort of accepted the addition for the time being. My plan is to gradually drink less until I can get used to going without.

    I drink coffee mate french vanilla ( prefer international delight) but this what they have at work. In addition, to adding the creamer i also add sugar. After reading some posts, I think I will slowly transition by eliminating the extra sugar and then gradually transitioning a different "creamer".

    Nonfat milk.

    I used to add 1 teaspoon each of half and half and sugar to my coffee. That's only 7 calories for the H&H and 15 calories for the sugar.

    Now I add protein powder, chia seeds, and coconut shreds and call it breakfast.
