I remember my very first sip of coffee. My mother had just given birth to my baby brother and it was just me and my Dad. I remember the steam rising off of his coffee and the wonderful smell.
He liked his coffee very sweet and full of cream.
He saw me looking and with a twinkle in his eye asked: do you want a taste?
And just like that, I was hooked.
I love coffee.
I still make my coffee almost exactly like that first sip. But not as much cream!
Especially since I’m lactose intolerant.
So for a long time…I suffered for my coffee. Unless I went to a high end coffee shop and they could give me a soy sugar free vanilla latte or something similar.
But then…along came Silk.
I swear the sun came out and shined on me in Walmart the first time I discovered Silk® Vanilla Almond Creamer . The Silk Creamers are dairy, lactose, and gluten free. There are no artificial colors or flavors and NO cholesterol or saturated fat.
And the taste….
It’s perfect for my everyday morning cup of joe.
But every once in a while, I want a fancy coffee in the comfort of my home. When that happens, I make my own Dairy Free Caramel Brûlée latte.
- 1½ cup of Vanilla Silk Creamer
- ½ cup of brown sugar
- 1 tsp of Vanilla extract
- Sugar Free caramel syrup to taste.
- Heat vanilla silk creamer and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium-low heat and whisk until sugar is dissolved. This takes a couple minutes.
- Remove from heat and add vanilla extract.
- Pour into a large (quart sized) mason jar and refrigerate until ready to use. ENJOY!!
Try it! I usually make a big jar full in the beginning of the week and store it in the refrigerator to pull out when I want to treat myself.
If you want to make your own, Silk Almond Creamers come in 3 flavors: Vanilla, Caramel and Hazelnut. Be sure to head to your local Walmart and head over to the dairy aisle to find your favorite flavor!
