Iced Vanilla Coconut Coffee
The flavors of vanilla and coconut together are amazing!
Hi, My Name Is Rachel And I WAS Addicted To Flavored Coffee Creamer
Before I start telling you how much I love this iced coffee and its wonderful flavors, I must tell you that I was addicted to store-bought flavored coffee creamer…from plain vanilla to pumpkin spice to whatever I was in the mood for that day.
It was not unusual for me to have 2-3 different bottles of flavored creamer in my fridge at a time. If I were using just a couple teaspoons, I probably wouldn’t feel as guilty, but who was I fooling?
I did not care for coffee unless it was very sweet, so yeah, it was “a little coffee with my creamer” sort of thing.
Make Homemade Creamer
I tried so many different ways to make my coffee taste good without using flavored creamers, but most every way I tried failed and I drank my coffee with disappointment.
I will say that I enjoyed Mrs Criddles homemade coffee creamer. I made a batch and stored it in the fridge for easy access. Because I travel alot, I knew I needed something even more convenient, so I kept thinking of what I could do for a perfect cup of coffee!
Collagen In My Coffee
Side note: you may be wondering why I am so worried about getting a cup of coffee everyday.
It is simply because I pour 2 Tablespoons of Collagen powder in my coffee (or tea) every single day.
Collagen has helped my hair to slowly grow in again. I have thin hair, even still, but have noticed over the past year and a half that new hairs continue to grow all over my head. That, my friend, is encouraging…and is exactly why I continue to invest in collagen.
Ok, so now you know why coffee is so important to me. I was ordering some items on Amazon website when I came across these cute little squeeze bottles of flavored stevia.
The flavors were vanilla, chocolate, caramel, coconut and plain stevia. I was intrigued and decided to give some of the flavors a try.
To make a long story short, I was not disappointed. Who ever thought of putting flavors and sweetener together in one little bottle was a genius! Now all I had to do was add my collagen and half & half and my coffee was ready to go!
Where I Get My Vanilla
I have to mention something about the vanilla I use in my iced vanilla coconut coffee…it is from the country of Haiti. I have used only Haitian vanilla for the past 11-1/2 years. My family goes to Haiti once in a while and they usually bring me more. I’m so thankful since it is the real stuff, not the imitation vanilla at the store. It really gives everything I put it in an incredible flavor! A huge shout out to my mother-in-law for always keeping me supplied!!
I also want to thank the SweetLeaf Stevia company for creating a whole set of these amazing Sweet Drops. There are 5 bottles in all! These little bottles are the only thing I use now. A couple short squirts and my coffee has a whole new flavor!
I appreciate SweetLeaf for making products that use stevia alone, as I use to have an allergy to sugar alcohols (erythritol/xylitol) and could not use other squirt bottles of sweetener.
There is no after-taste to these products…that made my decision to use them so easy! SweetLeaf has so many other fabulous stevia products. I hope you will go to their website and check them out for yourself.
