What Do YOU Put in Your Coffee?

Quote  |  Reply

I am a total coffee fiend.

Some of my favorite additions are:

2 tablespoons Almond Breeze Vanilla
1 teaspoon cocoa powder

2 tablespoons Almond Breeze Vanilla
1 chai tea bag

I also sometimes add a little piece of a cinnamon stick to either of those.

And I sometimes use my coffee in cereal, in place of the traditional milk or yogurt.

nothing, i drink my coffee black

If I were in the U.S. I would put in . . .

-CoffeeMate refrigerated creamer (vanilla, hazelnut, coconut, pumpkin pie, gingerbread, or bluberry pie . . . I just can't myself)

-Sweet n' Low

Here, in Korea, I don't have access to any of the aforementioned. So usually I settle for . . .

-Non-dairy creamer, or soymilk in a bind

-Splenda, or sugar in a bind
Coffee in your cereal? That's a new one to me.


Yep; coffee in cereal!  :D  I sweeten it a lot more with creamer when I do this, though.  Like maybe I'll add 1/4 c Almond Milk.  It's really good with Honey Nut Cheerios or Kashi Go Lean Crunch Honey Almond Flax


Why spoil a good thing? lol


I take mine every morning with Splenda and 4 Tbls. of fat-free Half and Half. Sometimes when I am having coffee later, as a treat, I'll add sugar-free flavored syrups, which have no calories or sugar but are very sweet. (They're sweetened with Splenda). free_flavored_syrups/

My favorites are Amaretto, French Vanilla, and Hazlenut :)

Every morning I brew my coffee with my french press, using 3 parts french roast and 1 part flavored coffee grounds.  Sometimes I just use all french roast, though.

But I always feel so bad about wasting coffee so what I like to do is sweeten my coffee with creamer and such while it's still hot and then pour 3/4 of it into ice cube trays and then refrigerate the rest.  With dinner a lot, for "dessert," I throw the cubes into a food processor, pulse till the ice is slushy, sort of, put it in a cup then pour the coffee in the fridge over it.  It's really good, only about 25 calories with the amount of creamer I use and really replaces ice cream for me.  A meal feels more finished when I end it cold.

More coffee! (I drink it black)

I drink my coffee with 1/4 cup organic ff milk or soy milk. Sometimes I like to add it to my oats in the morning. mmm...nothing better than creamy coffee banana peanut butter oats!

2 oz espresso (I make it in an Italian stovetop espresso thingy) and add 8 ounces of plain, light soymilk with 2 tablespoons of FF French Vanilla coffee matte


2 oz espresso with 4 ounces of plain, light soymilk, and 4 ounces of Vanilla Chai Tea (made with soymilk)

I also add a couple of espresso shots to my banana/chocolate whey smoothie... (half a banana, 2 scoops of choco whey protein, 1/2 cup or less of light, plain soymilk and espresso) It's like soft serve Ice cream.. yummy!

I drink my coffee black and I also like coffees that come in different flavors. I love the way  they smell and taste!

The best 20 calorie latte ever:

4 ounces unsweented almond breeze (warmed in microwave and whisked)
2 tablespoons of vanilla sugar free syrup (whisk again)
6 ounces of vanilla flavored coffee (whisk again)


I drink it black, but I often have flavored coffees. Today's is caramel and praline ;)

I love coffee, so coffee is one of my cheat things everyday :-).  Its worth the calories I waste on it.  I put 1 tsp of sugar and about 2 table spoons of half and half.  Sometimes I'll use splenda and a little sugar instead of straight sugar.  Coffee is just something that doesn't taste right to me if it is sweetened with just splenda.  I need a little sugar for it to taste right.  mmmm coffee.

not a huge coffee drinker, because mostly it gives me the shakes. But when I was visiting my family in maine this summer, my sister turned me onto iced coffee. I did a little bit off coffee (maybe about a half cup to whole), fat free french vanilla liquid creamer, chocolate syrup (i know bad but i used a tablespoon), skim milk and of course ice. Oh my goodness it was soooooo good. And not too high in cals, except for the chocolate syrup.

Anybody ever tried the sugar free chocolate syrup was just wondering how that tasted?

nada.  i drink really good coffee.  putting crap in it would be like putting coke in quality scotch.

I agree with everyone who said that adding things to your coffee will make it not coffee anymore

Irish whiskey or dark rum

but in the morning, nothing!

Almond milk, Soy milk



Vanilla soymilk! Even the light kind makes coffee creamy. I try to keep it on hand at work, because ppl are always buying that nasty "international delight" corn syrup vanilla flavored crap to put in their coffee. I've converted a few over to putting the soymilk in instead :)
