    Primal Coconut "Crack" Creamer

    Primal Fuel
    OMG! I can't find the original post where I found the link to the recipe...but DAMN! I Could drink this by itself w/o coffee!

    http://followingmynose.blogspot.com/...e-creamer.html

    As I am slowly eliminating things...I finally grabbed my ovaries and decided to whip this up. my first cup of coffee was w/my usual goats milk...my second was with the the Coconut Creamer... Heaven. I will say I cheated a bit and added some (a TBS to be exact) of my organic caramel coffee syrup. I want another cup of coffee just so I can have this!!! If you haven't tired it its a GREAT replacement for creamer or goatsmilk... I think I can easily give up my goats milk for this stuff!!!!!

    Yum. I generally use almond milk in my morning coffee, but sometimes I want something rich and sinful in my tea at night, for dessert. This sounds like a hit!

    I'm on my second batch. The first batch was a disaster--I used coconut milk that had been in the fridge, and the whole mixture congealed into this beige lump of slushy goo, which then went completely solid again in the fridge....looked disgusting but tasted good. So I made a second batch yesterday using room temperature milk and it was perfect.

    I tried making this and it turned out really liquid and not very creamy. Are you supposed to dump the water from the top of the coconut milk can first?

    IDK.. I dumped the whole can in...it wasn't very "whip" like - but then again I used my Vitamix Blender instead of my hand mixer with the beater attachment - as far as I'm concerned ...I RDC if it isn't whip like...it works well as it is....but that's me

    My second batch never went peaky like whipped cream, but it's definitely a little airy. I tipped the whole can in (full fat coconut milk) and I melted the oil slightly.

    It makes me giddy that this is working for so many others! Thanks for sharing it Shijin13!

    It definitely thickens up after a few hours in the fridge, and I just added that bit of info to the post, so hopefully that will help anyone else that makes it. (And apologies to those that had to figure it out the hard way!)

    I have tried a few variations with different extracts, almond, orange, etc and they all seem to work well. But if you add too much, the alcohol seems to keep the creamer from thickening. I also tried one batch with two eggs instead of one...yuk. That didn't work.

    I think Liz makes the most important point, to have your ingredients at room temp for the best results.

    Now I'm off to try a "coconut cheese" recipe. Has anyone had success with that?

    wow, looks awesome!! i wonder if, instead of melted coconut oil, if you added a bit of super dark chocolate melted with the coconut oil to make a chocolate whipped "cream"...
