  • I have been trying to drop sweetners for my coffe for a while.

    Any ideas? Which milk should I be adding to coffee? I don't use much 2% now just wondering what most Pbers used.

      I typically drink my coffee straight black. Sometimes I'll throw in some coconut milk if I want creamy. Rarely, but on occasion I'll add a few drops of liquid stevia for sweetness.

        Is coconut real sweet? Can you drink coconut milk straight up?

          I used to put in lots of cream - now I put in a tablespoon of coconut oil. Yum.

            Coconut has a subtle sweetness. Not much but it's tasty. I've never tried the coconut oil. Still too pricey for my budget.

              Heavy cream...or half heavy cream and half coconut milk. I chill my coconut milk and only add in the 'thickened' portions. I have never added sugar in my coffee, but to me, add in cream and it almost tastes 'sweet' to me.

                Here is the Lou Ana coconut oil I use. Anything wrong with these nutritional facts?

                  Just do it! I'm in the process of not putting splenda in my coffee anymore...I put either heavy cream or half heavy cream half coconut milk..the added creaminess really does help me not need to add sweetness to it. Ive been doing it for about 3 weeks now and while I'm still not 100% used to it its definitely drinkable for me now!

                    I ran out of Splenda in January and didn't buy anymore, I just got used to it... I've always used full cream... Now I use coconut milk or cream... or a mix of C milk and C oil, or C oil and cream, both of which are very filling BTW... I've never liked milk in my coffee I'd rather have it black if I have nothing around that is creamy...

                      I've found that if I spend a couple extra bucks to get a decent quality coffee (i.e. not folgers, etc), it's rather flavorful on its own and adding stuff becomes detrimental to the taste. On occasion, I'll add a splash of heavy cream (just to switch things up a bit).

                      Alternatively, you could try taking a class you dislike first thing in the morning, which necessitates having the full punch of the caffeine right away...

                        Agreed. High quality coffee doesn't need sweetners or cream.

                          For some people, vanilla makes things taste sweet. (It isn't everyone -- it's actually a genetic thing.) Have you tried adding vanilla? The good stuff, with alcohol (it's the alcohol that makes it taste sweet to some people.) I recommend trying half and half, heavy cream, coconut milk, etc. before going with an artificial sweetner. Plus, get GOOD coffee. The ways the beans are roasted make a difference. (I'm from Seattle, and yes, I'm a coffee snob.) Go for a breakfast roast, something that is more mild. Use a lower water temperature (175) and expose your beans to the water for a shorter amount of time. Me -- I use an aeropress for making coffee. I also hand grind my beans. Makes the best coffee in the world. Also feels somewhat 'primal' -- as it's all done by hand, no electricity. Good luck!

                            I bet its a pain in the butt having to make a campfire every morning for a cup of coffee!
