FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

My life is a constant struggle between wanting to eat healthily and loving coffee. While coffee in itself isn’t so bad, I love all the different flavors like French Vanilla and Hazelnut etc. which can rack up the sugars and are filled with so many chemicals. So I wanted to come up with my own healthy version so I can drink my coffee guilt-free. By the way, what makes French Vanilla, french? Oh well..here’s what you’ll need:

INGREDIENTS:

1 c Coconut Milk/Almond milk

½ c Coconut sugar

2 tbsp water

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Add sugar and water to a pan and stir until all the sugar dissolves.
  2. Whisk in Coconut Milk into the sugar mixture and stir quickly until it turns a light brown/golden color.
  3. Let it come up to a boil for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Set aside and add vanilla.
  5. Allow to cool and then transfer to your mason jar and serve with coffee of your choice.
