I don't drink coffee but sometimes will use the sugar free syrups.

I just have milk in my coffee and drink my tea with lemon.
I also love ginger tea. I don't use creamers at all.

I normally drink my coffee black.. However, sometimes in the afternoon I'll make a "drink" with coffee, heavy whipping cream, and some flavored Torani, DaVinci or one of those sf syrups. And if I want a cold drink during summer (or whenever) I'll use cub soda, hwc and Torani syrup - or even cold coffee and make an iced flavored coffee. Don't always do it, but now and then! My first preference is black unsweetened coffee.

I've found that all the prepared "creamers" are all artificial ingredients and most of them have never seen a cow... And like someone said, most have HFCS in them as well - I think they even taste artificial to me.

If and when I drink tea, I'll do the same - I prefer it with nothing, but will do the cream on occasion and a flavoring, depending on the tea. I like lemon tea best and just plain tea with a lemon squeeze in it.

No heavy cream=heavy whipping cream. You may check out the coconut milk. They also make flavored soy if you do soy. Most the flavored coconuts/soys do have cane sugar in them so they aren't sugar free either. I do enjoy the coconut milk.

Is there a difference between heavy whipping cream and heavy cream? I picked up the heavy whipping cream today. It's just ok. Also, forgot I'm lactose intollerant and the heavy whipping cream did a number on me. Need a lactose-free solution. Guess I'm headed to Whole foods better known as Whole Paycheck. lol

Thanks for the responses everyone.

If you want a little sweetness and flavor, there is stevia like English toffee and vanilla creme. You only need a few drops. Combine that with heavy cream or coconut milk if you want dairy-free and you have a tasty beverage. I wouldn't do any of the fake stuff, personally.

I've tried some of the sugar free creamers and the sugar-free Torani syrups. All taste like chemicals to me and have a peculiar aftertaste. I don't even put sweetener in my coffee or tea anymore - just half&half.

I have tried some of the flavored coffees with plain half&half and they taste better than the creamers.

I use half & half or heavy cream and one of the sugar free syrups. All the sugar free creamers seem to have hfcs in them so I just pass on them.

Davinchi syrups have lots of flavors and you can use heavy cream.

So, here I thought I'd have a "treat" by using the International Delight French Vanilla Sugar free creamer in my tea. NOT. Corn syrup is the THIRD ingredient, though the label notes that it's a "trivial amount." Whatever that means. Why the heck do they have to use it at all if it's so trivial? I'm so bummed. The carbs are 1 for a serving size of two tablespoons.

I suppose I could get some real cream, and a sugar free syrup, but I'd rather just have everything in one container. Fortunately, I drink my coffee black, but I want to be able to make a tea treat and that requires adding another liquid preferrably a creamy one.

So what are you guys adding to your coffee and tea? emoticon
