Does anyone have any suggestions on how to have creamy coffee for low use of condiments? I've always used powdered creamer, but I'm going WAY over on condiments (partly because I mistook 1 tsp. for 1 tbsp.). I tried soy milk today - yuck! Hopefully now that I've discovered my mistake the scale might start moving down slightly more.

I don't think soymilk is sopose to be used in coffee. At least it says it on the Silk carton. Now, I have found actual silk creamer, and I use that. It's yummy.

You can use Skim milk? And Splenda?
Or the fat free creamer liquid kind.

Yeah, I've had to get used to NF milk in my coffee. It took a while since I was used to Coffee Mate flavored creamers. They do have NF varieties, but I wasn't sure how to count it so I gave them up...

Try FF half and half. It is really good. Also, in the coffee isle at the grocery store you can get SF flavored syrups like carmel, vanilla, or Kalua.

I use a little fat free cool whip and a tsp of the sf syrup from the coffee isle. if you like a chocolate coffee the sf hot chocolate mix works great also.

Thanks for the suggestions. I tried a number of things over the weekend. FF evaporated milk, FF half & half, and LA's Cafe Au Lait. I think the FF half & half gave me the creamiest result for 2 tbsp. I'm just going to have to get my taste buds to adjust. I guess it's kind of like drinking beer - the first time you drink it it's gross, but it becomes an acquired taste.

Amy - I was a flavored coffee-mate lover too. A couple of months ago I switched to powdered plain creamer and splenda thinking I was doing so much better. Turns out it was the same ;(

guess I am a little late on this one, but I am a coffee addict. BIG TIME! and I use FF half and half.... I like the creaminess the best and it hardly counts for anything... I hate powdered. I don't like the flavor it gives my coffee and it is not at all creamy. but I guess you figured all these things out already.... now.... I have to go get a cup!

Try using flavored coffee instead and add milk. Or Splenda has flavored coffee creamer packets. I use them in my coffee at work since we don't have flavored coffee.
