Coffee - Do you drink it?

I'm a coffee drinker and was wondering what are some acceptables sweeteners and creamers?

Try drinking it iced and black. I was amazed at how much easier it was to get rid of the sweeteners that way.
If not, then stevia and coconut milk (real coconut milk, not the "beverage")is usually acceptable

heavy whipping cream and carmel syrup are not paleo.

I also drink black coffee.. once in a while i'll drink it with` coconut milk. But usually justed iced in the summer black no sweetner, no milk/cream. a cinnamon stick is nice in there too..

I take a can of Whole Foods brand coconut milk (WF's brand doesn't separate) and I put it in a glass bottle. I add about a tbls of vanilla extract and some stevia. It makes a great creamer and the one can lasts me about a week.

I keep telling myself I will one day put a cinnamon stick in the bottle for a cinnamon creamer. Maybe this winter.

It's unlikely that I will ever not drink coffee.
I brew starbucks at home with HWC and liquid splenda. Definetly NOT paleo LOL
but I have eliminated way too many things from my diet to feel guilty about anything
I eat at this stage. I loves me coffee.

I'm positive that, had it been available, our Paleo ancestors would have consumed coffee.
I'm off to get another cuppa. I take mine with just a bit of stevia.

avid Deff try stevia..
And also let me reccomend trying buttered coffee..
Try it with stevia and kerry gold unsalted butter.. ITS AMAZING!
This and some coconut oil (I would personally replace breakfast with it, but its up to you) and you got yourself some turbo jumping bullet proof coffee....

HWC doesn't cause me issues, and I love it in my coffee.
Thanks for the tip and if the day comes that I need to switch, I'll give it a try,
but for now, it's hwc all the way.

I"m going to be trying out bulletproof coffee next week. It's ultra purified coffee with no side effects or come down and it's made a very specific way. In a blender with grassfed quality butter (2-6tbsp)and mct oil (made from coconut oil but 16x stronger). No sweetener needed when you make it this way and supposedly keeps you full all day, keeps you energized with no crash, and makes you loose a ton of weight.

Thanks for all the good coffee ideas! Weaning myself off both dairy and artificial sweeteners, and my creamy sweet coffee is such a strong habit, I didn't know what I was going to do. I didn't want to give up my morning caffeine!

After reading here, I got myself an iced black coffee with a straw, and it's going down pretty easy. I never thought I'd be able to drink it black.

One of these days' I'll try bulletproof too.

I drink my coffee with maple syrup or honey. Both are Paleo acceptable (depending on who you talk to, I suppose). For creamer, I use coconut or almond milk, and sometimes actual cream.

Two or three cups (18oz) a day are standard for me. It took me a few weeks to get used to black coffee. Now 8 weeks in, I'm actually learning to find different flavors in coffee that I never noticed before.

If you have a starbucks with a clover in the store, you gotta go try it. Yes you'll spend 4+ bucks on a cup of black coffee, but its worth it. Trust me.

I can't start my day w/o my espresso. I use coconut milk w/ my quad espresso when I'm doing strict Paleo (whole30) and I use grassfed whole milk when I'm off whole30. I don't use an sugar. At first I couldn't handle it w/o sweetener so I just ate a banana with my espresso. Now I can drink straight up espresso shots if I had too. =)
