Almond Milk


Recommended Posts

I weaned myself off of offee creamer years ago, and typically have a cup of black coffee in the morning. So, fortunately, this wasn't too bad of a transition for me. I do however, make my own almond milk and on a hot day like to ice the last bit of my coffee with it. I put a couple of dates in a big batch, but it's not especially sweet.


Is there any reason I couldn't do this on my Whole30? Especially since I'm already in the habit of black coffee?

Home-made almond milk is much superior to store bought, that said whilst the dates are compliant I'd probably suggest you try it without them for the duration of your Whole30 as it really does lean toward more of a 'creamer' than a straight up milk.

Dates are sugar bombs, exceptionally high in fructose (one medjool date has more sugar than your average candy bar), and they will feed your sugar dragon.

I realise this is not exactly the same thing, but here's the official take on 'creamers':

Tip: Regarding “Paleo” coffee creamer… sigh. We know there’s a recipe out there where eggs, coconut milk, dates, and some voodoo magic are combined with prayers to create a thick, creamy concoction that can take the place of your cream and sugar (or Coffeemate) and once again transform your undrinkable black coffee into sweet, dreamy caffeine. This is not okay–sugary creamer substitutes fall under the SWYPO rule. Instead, we’d encourage you to take a look at why you need this at all. Do you really like coffee, or are you drinking it for the hit of sugary flavor?
