A couple of months ago, I gave up my french vanilla coffee creamer habit. It wasn’t quite as bad as my diet cola habit, but bad enough. I’ve missed it, but I just couldn’t justify drinking it and knowing what was in it.
I decided to make my own (inspired by: Simply Frugal):
* 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
* 1 1/4 cups milk
* 3 tsp vanilla
Mix these three together in lidded container. Shake. Enjoy! Keeps in the fridge for up to two weeks.
FYI: I am well aware that this is still not a ‘health’ food, but I like that I now recognize the entire list of ingredients –> milk, sugar, vanilla
INGREDIENTS (International Delight brand that I used to drink):
