Hippie Coffee Recipe (Dairy & Sugar-Free)
Creamy, Smooth, Naturally Sweet with NO added sugar… What more could you ask for in a coffee drink? Leave chemical flavored creamers behind. Learn how to make hippie coffee, that’s full of flavor, without dairy, refined sugar, or other nasty ingredients.
DRINK LIKE A BABY
I’ve had an appreciation for coffee since birth, that’s no exaggeration. As a baby, my dad would dip my pacifier in his coffee. When I was old enough to handle a bottle, my dad would put small amounts of coffee in my bottle. Obviously my dad was serious about crafting a coffee connoisseur. I’m definitely not a coffee newbie & I understand the one rule with coffee: you don’t mess with someone’s coffee!
BECOMING A “HEALTHY” HIPPIE, ONE BABY STEP AT A TIME…
Over the past decade, I gradually made baby steps towards making my coffee habit healthier. I cringe at the thought of what I previously added to my coffee… white sugar, artificial sweeteners & creamers. With taking baby steps, I gradually made the transition to a healthier coffee. Just like losing weight doesn’t happen over night, neither does saying “good-bye” to unhealthy habits.
First, I “weaned” myself from using artificial sweeteners, using white sugar as an alternative, along with artificial creamers. Eventually, I weaned myself off white sugar, & used only artificial creamers. I finally was able to wean myself off the artificial creamers, using only half-&-half creamer instead.
HOW THE HIPPIE COFFEE CREATION WAS BORN
After becoming ill with an autoimmune disorder, I challenged myself to decrease my dairy intake. I created this super yummy Hippie Coffee recipe while searching for ways to enjoy my coffee without dairy. Creamy & super smooth, naturally sweet with NO added sugar… What more could you ask for in a coffee drink?
HOW TO MAKE HIPPIE COFFEE
What you’ll need:
- Filtered water
- Organic unsweetened coconut cream
- Organic cinnamon
- Organic vanilla extract
- if you’re gluten-intolerant, make sure the vanilla extract you’re using is gluten-free.
- Personal-sized blender
- If you don’t use a blender, the Coconut Cream will resemble unappetizing curdled milk in your coffee.
All about the coconut:
The Coconut Cream is amazing & diminishes any bitter or acidity from the coffee, common complaints from coffee drinkers. If you’ve never worked with Coconut Cream before, it’s part chunky cream & part liquid.
For this healthy coffee recipe, I use a heaping tablespoon of the chunky portion & a tablespoon of the liquid portion. If you want it more creamier & naturally sweeter, you can modify it to your taste.
