I brew mine fairly strong and add in this mix.... No Sugar Added Almond Milk, Packet of Splenda, few drops of Vanilla and a bit of Cinnamon. Heavenly and very very low Cal. It satisfies my need for Flavor and gives me an energy kick also.

I started drinking coffee when I was 12 years old with my mom. It was our "morning time" together. She drank it black, so at age 12 I drank it black. 44 years later, I still drink it black. And I love my morning coffee today as much as ever. emoticon

For my first cup of the day I make what's called bulletproof coffee - a cup of very strong organic coffee that I pour in my Vitamix and add 1 T. coconut oil and 1 T. ghee and about a tsp. =/- of organic vanilla and then blend until the oils are incorporated. This is my pre-workout drink - it gives me energy and keeps me satisfied until lunch. Sometimes on the weekend, especially if I'm extra busy cleaning house or working in the yard/garden, I'll make another cup of this brew for an added burst of energy in the afternoon.

I drink my coffee everyday and sometimes 2 times a day. I always use a small amount of cream usually plain but sometimes flavored. I also use real sugar but just a small amount. I factor the fat and calories into my daily amount so I can enjoy what I love. I don't drink much other than water so I don't feel I should give up my coffee.

I have lately been putting some Bolthouse Protein Plus in my coffee. It sweetens it up nicely and gives me some protein.

I have tried other ways of drinking coffee, such as black, with 2% milk, no sugar, with honey, with soy, etc. etc.
I just have to go with what I enjoy: fresh brewed with a splash of half-and-half cream, and a pinch of raw sugar. Excellent every time!!!! :) Even better with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

about 2/3 of the time, I drink it black. the other 1/3 of the time, I like it with a little slosh of cream and a few drops of Stevia - I have a chocolate-flavored stevia liquid that is amazing in coffee!

I love flavored coffees but I like them a tad sweet and with cream. Since I can't find low fat half and half, I make my own. I mix 1 qt of reg half and half and 1 qt fat free. I'm just not a fan of most low fat or fat free. I also use splenda.

Before I decided to be more aware of my intake, I always had two creams and two artifical sweeteners in my coffee. When I realized how much of a waste of calories that was, I started to wean myself off the fixings by doing two creams and one sweetener for a week or two, then one of each for a couple weeks, then just one cream, then no extras.

Now, I either drink it black or with just a little bit of skim milk. I would have never imagined I would be drinking and enjoying black coffee, but it wasn't hard to get used to at all!

I do decaf coffee because it makes me emotional if I don't. However, this morning I tried 1/2 caff because I had a migraine to see if it would help. I was desperate.

I've decided not to read Fifty Shades of Grey. The book title sounds exactly like what's happening to my hair!!
