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

    Primal Fuel
    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.

    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!
    The pain of discipline or the pain of regret? You choose.

    Oh look - I made a Journal.

    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...
