Non-Dairy Creamer, Paleo Coffee Frappe

Non-Dairy Creamer that is Whole30 and Paleo compliant.
If you've been following my Instagram (@peasknees), you know that I recently finished my first round of Whole30. I had a whole month where I didn't drink any coffee. I drank tea twice with this "creamer" like this, and the rest of the time I drank my tea plain. I have to say I really missed my cups of tea in the afternoon with half and half and sweetener - which is normally one dehydrated Stevia leaf. I still miss sweetener but I found something I really enjoy in both coffee and tea. Cold or hot.  This doesn't taste dairy half and half. But it makes drinks creamy and adds flavor. It's really good.
The coconut milk gives it the creaminess I like and the cashew milk makes it not too thick and mellows out any coconut flavor. There are several ways to flavor this creamer. The sky's the limit. SO many spices you can use to make this creamer to your liking.
Non-Dairy Vanilla Creamer. Look at all those vanilla beans.
To make this Whole30 or Paleo, you need to pay attention and make sure the ingredients are compliant. If you are eating Whole30 no sweetener of any kind is allowed. So leave it out for your 30 days. Also the Paleo Coffee Frappe is not for Whole30 even if the ingredients are. If you are eating a paleo or primal diet adding a date or honey for sweetener is allowed. I hope you'll try this, it's so simple but it's a great substitute for dairy creamer.
