Homemade Dairy-free Coffee Creamer

 

Coffee. GAME CHANGER!! I’ve created the perfect dairy free creamer that’s just subtly sweet – making your coffee creamy and delicious and giving it just a subtle touch of sweetness.. aka it still tastes like coffee, not straight up SUGAR! It’s dairy free, and only gets it’s sweetness naturally from dates – as opposed to the ones in the grocery store that are stocked full of sugar & ingredients your body doesn’t even recognize!!

AND it comes with a bonus recipe at the end: coffee-chip pecan bites!!

Dairy Free Caramelly Pecan Coffee Creamer

Sorry that’s a mouth full – LOL

*You will need to soak Pecans overnight for this recipe (at least 8 hours)*

Items needed: Blender, nut milk bag or cheese cloth, mason jar or bottle for storing! 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup Pecans, soaked overnight
  • 3 cups filtered water
  • 1/4 cup – 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk (canned)
  • 3-6 dates *this just depends on your preferred level of sweetness, I find that I don’t even need the dates!*
  • optional: 1 TBS almond butter
  • optional: 1 tsp – 1 TBS ghee 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pink himalayan salt

*I say optional for the ghee and almond butter, but personally I think it tastes so much yummier with those additions!*

*I use 1/2 cup coconut milk*

DIRECTIONS

  1. Soak pecans 8 hours or longer
  2. Drain and rinse pecans. Discard the liquid that they soaked in
  3. In a blender, add the pecans and 3 cups of filtered water and blend for a few minutes until creamy
  4. Strain. Using a nut milk bag, pour “milk” in and strain out into glass jar (There will be leftover “pulp” in the bag)
  5. Place the pecan milk back into blender
  6. Add all other ingredients and blend for a few minutes until everything is combined. *Dates are easiest to blend if you run them under hot water for a minute*
  7. Store in a mason jar in the fridge and enjoy it in your coffee!

IMPORTANT NOTE: you may notice some “floaties” in the creamer after refrigerating. It’s just the coconut milk – I always blend my coffee, which is why this recipe works for me!
