    I shake it up well before I use it, then open it. I store the can in the fridge & it doesn't usually separate. Sometimes I get a can that has no liquid sound in it. That's when I let it sit on the back burner of my stove for a sec while the oven is cooking (gentle, low heat, just enough to liquify the fat)

      I've just gone dairy free so I'm going to try this in the next few days. I might separate the eggs and whisk the white until fluffy, then add it at the end. This is how most egg nog is made so i think it'll work with this.

        I love the sound of this - but I am going to resist! Too close to "dessert" mentality for me - and I have NEVER been good at moderation!!!

          Just made this and it gets a BIG thumbs up from me! I hated coconut milk in coffee, but this manages to be rich and creamy with hardly any coconut taste, probably because I put vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon in it and used walnut oil (I had no coconut oil). VERY tasty!

            Is this creamer okay for the Whole30?

            I would suggest having your egg at room temp (that helps emulsify it)

              My adaptation to the recipe:

              3 Tbsp Walnut Oil
              3 Tbsp Beef fat (saved from when I cooked hamburger, heated the fat in microwave so it's liquid)
              1 Tbsp vanilla
              1 Tbsp Honey
              1 Can click coconut milk
              1 Egg

              I blended everything in my Vitamix. It has a very light coconut taste with a dash of Hazelnuts.

              I used the beef fat because it's solid in the fridge so I figured it would make a thicker creamer. My previous creamer batch was too watery so I doubled the quantities of added fat. The creamer is better having spent one day in the fridge than it was the day I made it at room temp.

              I noticed that the Click brand has a greater percentage of lipids and saturated fats than some of the other brands of coconut milk I sometimes purchase:
              Tosca and Goldlabel.

                I hate to say it, but beef fat and coffee does not sound like a yummy combination!

                  You don't taste the beef fat in the creamer because the coconut and walnut oils are what you taste. (Beef fat doesn't have a pronounced taste).

                  Kind of how if you mix Grapefruit juice with juice of another fruit, it will still taste like grapefruit.

                  Don't knock it t'ill you try it.

                        It's COCONOG!! Yummy, yummy stuff.......now the most recent in a long string of coconut addictions. I'm bound to turn into a coconut any second now. Seriously, it's bad. Lol

                          has anyone tried this in iced coffee? I would like to try to give up the dairy, but i drink iced coffee in the morning, and worry the coconut oil will congeal or settle on top?

                            I have not tried it, but I have kept the crack creamer in the fridge and it has not congealed there.

                              Hi

                              Mine turned out very egg-y tasting. RAW egg-y tasting. I used a whole egg, FF coconut milk and 2T coconut oil. It did thicken up in the fridge to almost heavy cream thick... but just egg-y.

                                I supposed you could cook it gently and make it more of a custard if the rawness bothers you.
