COFFEE AND TEA CREAMER



COFFEE AND TEA CREAMER

People often wonder what to use in their coffee. This is good in coffee, but since I am a tea drinker, I put it in my tea and it works well for tea, too.  This is actually quite nutritious (2 tbsp creamer has as much protein as 1 large egg).  If you want even a little more body to your tea or coffee, stir in some unflavored gelatin; great for increasing collagen naturally in the skin and for lovely healthy nails and hair (big beauty secret among models). Check this out!  and this!

1/cup vanilla whey protein (75 mL)
  (I use Gold Standard from GNC)
1/cup whipping cream (60 mL)
2 tbsp water (30 mL)

In food processor or blender, process vanilla whey protein, whipping cream and water until smooth.  Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.  Use 1 to 2 tbsp per cup of coffee or tea and sweeten as usual, but maybe a little less as the whey protein is a little sweet (not from sugar though).  It is usually more convenient to double this recipe.
