This naturally sweetened Caramel Coffee Creamer will turn your coffee into a sweet rich caramel treat!
Ever since quitting my teaching career and starting this blog, I realized how much I love cooking. I created recipes before the blog, but nowhere near as many as I do now.
Leaving a career that was no longer satisfying was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. By doing so, I found something that I am truly passionate about.
When I was a teacher I would come home too tired to want to cook anything but quick and easy meals. So making a condiment like this Caramel Coffee Creamer would have been out of the question.
When I realized how quick and easy making your own condiments are, I was all over it. I love that I can control what goes in my food, so taking a few minutes out of my day to make my own was a no-brainer.
Not only do I ensure that they are vegan and gluten free, but I don't have any weird ingredients in my food that I can't pronounce.
Naturally Sweetened With Dates
I don't remember the last time that I bought vegan coffee creamer. It's probably been at least ten years. Even though I love store-bought vegan coffee creamers, I don't love all the sugar that comes with them.
Normally I put unsweetened almond milk and stevia in my coffee, but sometimes I want something sweeter. Not only did I add this homemade coffee creamer to my coffee, but in my morning smoothie as well.
I happened to have a couple of batches of Caramel Creamer from recipe testing that I didn't want to go to waste.
I like to keep my sugar consumption to a minimum. Instead of sugar, I used a healthy alternative - dates. Even though dates contain sugar, they also contain vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Since they are so sweet, a little goes a long way.

I've been asked several times where I got the little glass pitcher in the photos. I found it at a thrift store. It's fun when you find something cool at a thrift store, isn't it!
I looked on Amazon for something similar for all of you. While I couldn't find one like mine, I did find this cute double sided pitcher.
