Toasted Rice Horchata w/ Salted Caramel Drizzle & Coconut Charcoal Whipped Cream (vegan & gf)

Sugar-Free French Vanilla Creamer (vegan & Plant Paradox friendly)

I admit, I’ve started to miss coffee creamers since cutting out sugar. It’s not the sweetness  or the flavors that I miss. Rather, it’s the simplicity of adding one thing to your coffee before it’s good to go. For the past couple of months, my habit’s been to heat up coconut milk on the stove…
