My Long Affair with Coffee Creamer

I have always been a big coffee mate fan. I loved it. I gave it up when I ditched hydrogenated oils.
One of my true loves. Coffee just didn't seem the same without it. Half and half tastes good but too much cholesterol. Skim milk just don't cut it. Non fat half and half is ok but something is still missing.
I can't stand black coffee.
I took to making my own homemade Greek yogurt and the original recipe called for 1/2 cup of non-fat dry milk. I made a few batches but could taste the powdered milk aftertaste in my yogurt. I left it out the next batch. Oh what wonderful yogurt I had now. No dry milk aftertaste.
Then I was left with this great big box of non-fat powdered milk. I certainly wasn't going to use it to drink. I hated to leave it in the cupboard.
I used the last drop of my fat free half and half yesterday. Today left with black coffee was searching the kitchen for anything to put in my coffee but skim milk. I even contemplating some of my thick Greek yogurt but figured it might curdle my coffee.
Then it hit me that big box of powdered milk in the cupboard. It is non-fat and had to be better than using skim milk.
I was pleasantly surprised. The powdered milk made my coffee creamy. Not quite the same as coffee mate but I would rank it a pretty close second.
My mom says "Teresa, you have been on a diet so long, anything tastes good". After depriving myself of the good stuff, the "better for me stuff" does taste pretty wonderful.
Wishing you a great on point day.
