For my coffee addict besties who, like me, do not own fancy coffee machines.
I feel like the only people with fancy coffee machines got them as a wedding gift from their wedding registry…
Am I right?!
Anywayss, I know you ladies are out there and you’re looking for ways to sex up your coffee while keeping it healthy (and dairy-free!).
About two years ago, I picked up a $3 tool from World Market that conveniently stirs your coffee while making it FROTHY too.
YES. Frothiness feels so fancy and luxurious.
I just ordered this new milk frother from amazon because I felt like I needed a little upgrade. Plus, the one I bought years ago is no longer available (at least not online). Do you guys have a favorite frother?
Technically, you are supposed to froth the milk/creamer first, then pour it over your coffee, but I’m too lazy for that… plus that means more dishes I have to wash (no dishwasher in my apartment probs). So I just stir/froth it in my coffee cup after pouring in my favorite creamer (which I will get to) and it works just fine!
Unbleached, Chlorine-Free Coffee Filters: these are so much better for you and for the environment than the regular white filters. On snapchat (@glowingfridge), one of you guys recommended I try reusable filters which I will get next, when these compostable filters are gone. Love them!
Things I Add in My Coffee:
Califia Farms knows what’s up when it comes to coffee creamer (and plant milks too). I’m seeing Califia Farms in all the stores which makes me so happy! I love this brand (not sponsored by the way) because they’re dairy-free obviously, but also because they’re carrageenan-free and soy-free. I’m pretty sure I’ve connected the dots between soy and breakouts, so no more soy for me. They make a bunch of different flavors and I love every single one. I highly recommend trying this creamy deliciousness in your morning cup!
Specifically, Sweet Drops in vanilla créme because it’s never sweet enough.. and stevia adds that little extra sweetness I love. A little goes a long way – only 2-3 drops or it becomes bitter!
Ground cinnamon adds amazing cinnamon-y flavor while helping keep blood sugar levels balanced.
That’s it for my favorite coffee essentials!
What tips/tricks do you have?! What are your favorite ways to spice up your coffee?!
