GOTTA HAVE MY COFFEE!

Good evening, WW Friends! I love coffee, 2 cups of regular in the morning and 1 cup of decaf in the evening. I recently read an article from Hungry Girl about great additions to your coffee and the Nestle's Coffee Mate fat-free and sugar free powder coffee creamers definitely caught my attention since I always add Coffee Mate to my coffee.

I've been using their liquid coffee creamers lately. Some of my favorites include The Original, Fat-Free Cinnamon Vanilla Creme & Honey Vanilla Creme. They are 0 - 1 POINT per 1 Tablespoon. But that does not mean I will never have Powder Creamers ever again. My favorite Coffee Mate powder creamer happens to be Parisan Almond Creme! 1 POINT per 1 tablespoon and it will really add flavor to your coffee for sure!

Now, I do not know if this counts as a dairy serving? Most likely not, but I also tried my with coffee, Nestle's Carnation Original Malted Milk. 3 tablespoons are 2 POINTS and it really adds sweetness to either your coffee or cup of Fat-Free Milk or Vanilla Almondmilk. However, being that it may be too sweet sometimes, I make sure it comes out of either of my 35 POINTS Allowance or any 2 ACTIVITY POINTS that I earned. I also may consider using a packet of Nestle's Hot Cocoa Mix to give my coffee chocolate flavor or even the Weight Watchers Smoothie Mix! I previously did a post on a Vanilla Frappuccino Recipe, which was developed by my current WW Meetings Leader, which I love a lot & you will to.

All right, I think I am going to pass up on a cup of decaf coffee tonight so that I can be sure to get my water intake for the day in. Have a great weekend On Program and Be Blessed, you guys!

Pedro

    I used to love me some coffee mate, but when I switched to the fat free the sugar grams started to trigger other cravings in the middle of the day. So, I am back to half 'n' half and I just take the points. Otherwise I'd be right with you on some of these. I am going to have to look for the Malted Milk because I wonder what that would be like with WW Chocolate smoothie powder.

    hmmmm I avoid the coffeemate route because it is sooo far from natural, rather have regular old 1% milk, or skim

    I'm a sugar free syrup fan myself. I too deduct the points from the weeklies. Thanks for the info.

    I like to have a decaf as dessert at night too, but my favorite creamer is the Coconut, yum!

    Splenda has some "Flavors for Coffee flavored no calorie sweetner"s - Mocha, Caramel, Cinnamon Spice, Hazelnut & French Vanilla... I've only used the Mocha... but it adds zero points!
