  • Coconut cream powder

    So, I have gone primal and then learned I had to give up dairy. Ok...not a problem, when I drink coffee I use coconut milk problem solved. But then there are times that I want coffee on the go...I used to just use half and half but now that is a no go (soy is also out...which is all the coffee shops have as an alternative)....Then I saw coconut cream powder at the store...anyone tried using it in coffee? is it Primal? I think I could keep a small stash of it in my purse and have it on hand...anyone tried this? Or is this just stupid and I should just give up all coffee?....

            Is this the brand you were talking about?

            I found it in 2 different stores on amazon.com. One store lists the ingredients as natural coconut and maltodextrin. The other lists the ingredients as: Fresh coconut cream, glucose syrup, sodium caseinate, silicon dioxide, dipotassium phosphate. Neither list the macro-nutrient breakdown so it's hard to say how "primal-friendly" it really is. I did get some good reviews though...

              I haven't tried it in coffee, although I remember reading a review where someone said that it's not a good coffee creamer because it doesn't dissolve well. You could blend it with a bit of water and keep it in the fridge and use it that way, though.
