Folks…I know it has been awhile – but I am back with a new Product Pop-Up to share with you!! I find that I am on a constant quest to find the perfect creamer for my coffee. I do not add sugar – real or fake – to my coffee anymore. I only use creamer to sweeten and enhance my daily fix. Although I am in LOVE with Nestle’s Bliss Sweet Cream – I like to venture out around my comfort zone and try different things. Note – Nestle’s Bliss makes a Sweet Cream Cinnamon that is TO DIE FOR. I have found another product that I am seriously swooning over – Silk Almond Creamer in Caramel. Holy smokes – this stuff is so so so good.
I picked up my carton of Silk Almond Creamer at Target. My local Hannaford does not yet carry Almond based creamers. I am hoping to see something like this closer to home soon (hint, hint Machias Hannaford – I’m looking at you!). I should start by saying that I really do enjoy Almond milk – so this was not a stretch for me. I had not tried the creamer before so I was excited to give it a go. I really like Almond milk because I feel that it adds more flavor to whatever it is that I am using it in. When I was doing my pre-op liquid diet I was using Silk’s unsweetened vanilla milk in all my shakes. It definitely added a little extra something to the shakes. The creamer is nice and creamy and thick – which I love. It is sweet because of the caramel flavor. This particular caramel actually taste like rich creamy caramel – not like fake gross caramel. It’s rich, and I like that. To be totally honest – it does contain cane sugar – but I am still comfortable with the numbers on this product. One tablespoon will cost you 15 calories, 0 fat, 3 grams of carbs, and no protein. I use two tablespoons to sweeten my daily iced coffee. I find that it does its job nicely. I REALLY am committed to the caramel variety – but moonlighted with the vanilla flavor. I did not enjoy it as much and, in fact, dumped it. According to the Silk website they also offer a hazelnut variety of Almond creamer. Maybe I will give that one a go!!
So – go on out and give this product a try!! I really like it and I think you might to. As always, I have not been asked or sponsored by this company to promote their product – I just really like it and want to share it with you! For my next trick I am going to share my protein coffee – the stuff that helps me to make it through the day. Be on the look out for this post laster this week! I know in the wls (weight loss surgery) world coffee is sometimes controversial. However, I makes sure to get all my water in daily. Caffeine dehydrates and believe me, you do not want to get dehydrated. I consume about 16 cups of water a day – so I’m not too worried about my cup and a half of coffee daily.
