A Richer, Creamier Cup Of Joe Without Fat Or Artificial Flavoring

This Sparked Me!

Next time you pour a morning cup, add calcium and protein by stirring in a couple of teaspoons of nonfat powdered milk instead of creamer. I love the way it creates a richer cup of coffee, brings out flavored coffee, adds a hint of sweetness, and gives me the nutritional benefits of milk without watering down my drink. At about 5 calories a teaspoon, it's one of my favorite weight loss secrets. It also works great in tea and cocoa!

Calories based on 1/3 cup nonfat milk powder = 8oz skim milk. 16 teaspoons = 1/3 cup.

    I use "Almond Breeze" unsweetened almond milk. A whole cup is around 40 calories and it makes it much creamier.

Thanks for this idea. I will definitely try this; hopefully I will like this enough to stop using half and half.

    I add a spoonful of protein powder in my coffee in place of creamers.. emoticon
