31 Days of Frugal Paleo | Paleo Coffee Creamer

October 20, 2013

I first made a version of this last year when I did my first Whole 30, this past week when I decided I needed to kick my sugar addiction I made it again.

The only difference, I used dates to sweeten it.

So this time I thew in dates.

It's not nearly as yummy as a Cafe au Lait, but it's Whole 30 approved good.

Speaking of Whole 30, there was no way in the world I would have been able to stick with it during Type-A Nola. So I gave it up for two days, and I'll be starting over Monday. Yes I know it defeats the purpose, but it was either waste away on two carrots and some asparagus, or enjoy the weekend.

No one's perfect.

Paleo Coffee Creamer
Total time: 35 minutes
Yield: 2 cups


  • 9 pitted whole dates

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 14 oz can coconut milk

  • dash cinnamon

  • egg

  • Cooking Directions
    Chop dates and soak in 1/2 cup of boiling water for 30 minutes.

    In a food processor combine the egg, drained dates, coconut milk, and cinnamon. Pulse to combine.
    When dates are chopped up as much as possible by the food processor, strain the mixture through a mesh strainer and store in a tightly sealed container for up to 7 days.

    I seriously wish I could have stuck to Paleo while at a blog conference, but such is life.

    As my mother always says.

    I'll be sharing photos from Type-A Bootcamp this week so check back for that, as well as our last full week of 31 Days. It officially ends next Thursday, and my fingers couldn't be happier.

    Gosh it's hard to be on a blog every blooming day schedule!
