Keep an eye out for CoffeeMate SUGAR FREE Creamy Chocolate. 30 calories per serving, but I use 1/2 serving in a pretty big cup. That is half the calories of the regular Creamy Chocolate creamer. It is brand new here, and I only find it on the shelf occasionally along with the other creamers. Other sugar frees include Hazelnut and Vanilla Carmel.

I have found that if using a small amount doesn't give you the flavor you like, try adding 1/2 tsp of sugar free sweetner. Fewer calories than using more creamer.

If there is a World Market near you, they sell a lot of Torani syrups, including sugar free ones. If you like pumpkin/gingerbread type stuff you could probably make it at home using spices + half and half and sweetner. Those commercial coffee creamers scare me though, they have 4,000 ingredients, only 2 of which I recognize as food.

I get angry when people make their coffee super creamy and super sweet. I know, I have anger issues. I don't know why it makes me so mad. But, it really seriously pisses me off. I get visibly angry about it. Lol. It's stupid, I know. Anyways, I just pour a dab of non fat milk into my coffee just to take the edge off. I used to drink coffee black, and then discovered I like a small dab of non fat milk. But, people who do the French vanilla creamers and all that, and then if they add sugar, or even worse, fake sugar, OMG, I have to leave the room or I'll scream profanities. Lol. True story!

I have issues.


Then again, some people should just stay away from coffee completely :)

Bailey's Irish Cream. It's got a bunch of sugar and calories but you won't care after a few cups.

I just purchased (at Target) Pepperment Mocha and Carmel macchiato in sugar free, by coffemate.

I use vanilla almond milk with a bit of brown sugar, cinnamon, and pure vanilla. It's the best coffee ever and only about 50-60 cals a cup

Can add to oatmeal and hot chocolates too :)

Coffee mate has a Sugar Free Pumpkin spice. I think they also have a sugar free peppermint. Of course, these are seasonal items.

I wish we had sugar free creamers here. For some reason there aren't any up in Canada. So I usually use Fat Free French Vanilla.

Both International Delights and Coffee Mate make flavored creamers. The ID comes either in boxed, shelf stable single tubs or refrigerated pourable liquid. The Coffee Mate comes in either refrigerated liquid or powdered.

The ID flavors include Almond Joy, Peppermint Patty, Caramel (etc.) and the Coffee Mate includes Caramel Macchiato and Creamy Chocolate among others. Fair warning on the sweeteners used though. If you're one of the people who doesn't taste sucralose (Splenda) as being sweet you'll still have to add sweetener. grumble

Coffee whitener/creamers = chemical/hydrogenated oil junk. "sugar-free" = chemically sweetened garbage. Just sayin.

I LOVE creamer, but I decided it's not worth all the calories every morning... so now I buy flavored coffee and use half and half or 1% milk.
October 29, 2012 8:55 AM
I use Silk Vanilla and / or Bolthouse Mocha Cappuccino
October 29, 2012 8:57 AM
I used to use creamer with my coffee ALL the time. I had a friend go to black coffee and encouraged me to do so too! So, after two weeks of getting through black coffee I know perfer it. It honestly took me TWO weeks though to get over needing the sweetened flavors. It is so worth it in the end because look at all of those wasted calories on creamer. Good luck!

Try adding spices like nutmeg and cinnamon.

Skim milk and sugar free syrup.
If you have a cash & carry go there. HUGE selection of sugar free ones.

I brew flavored coffee, such as Hazelnut or Vanilla. Make my own Pumpkin Spice using regular coffee beans and sprinkle a generous portion of pumpkin pie spice into the grounds. Can also do this with cinnamom. Or add vanilla extract to the coffee after it is brewed.

Also, with a good Italian or French Roast, I find creamer, flavor, or sugar just dilutes the coffee goodness.

I drink my coffee black, but I have SF Da Vinci syrups in French vanilla, coconut, raspberry and caramel. They're great for adding flavor to my low-carb pancakes, MIMs, hot flax cereal and plain Greek yogurt.

I use creamer--yummy! I like hazelnut creamer, peppermint mocha, almond joy, white chocolate. ALL YUMMY! :)
October 29, 2012 9:25 AM
Try silk original almond milk and a couple drops of real vanilla extract. Its not real sweet but very low in calories and healthful.wink
It has none of those long words that are hard to pronounce and most imporantly partially hydrogenated oils. You really don't want to be putting those in your body everyday.

Sugar Free Pumkin Spice is AMAZING! Definitely try it before it goes out of season. Also, I just bought Torani sugar free caramel syrup. It's not creamer but it's 0 calories and adds some flavor.

Sometimes I just use 2-3 tablespoons of fat free half-and-half with 1 Sweet and Low...really good!

Sorry, I'm not help. I've had to give up my beloved coffee because I cannot drink it black or just plain half and half. I need creamer and sugar in it. I've switched to green tea with a teaspoon of honey in the rough and a squeeze of lemon juice. Green tea has caffeine in it and I normally drink 2-3 cups a day.
