My Four Go-To Coffee Recipes + A Bonus Seasonal Recipe

As you know, I have been living a dairy-free, soy-free, and egg-free diet due to my daughters intolerance. Continuing my breastfeeding journey is important but so is my morning and afternoon cup of coffee! I mean what’s a mom without coffee? A mombie mess!

For years I’ve had your basic medium roast coffee with hazelnut coffee creamer, unless I went to my beloved Starbucks or Cheshire Coffee. However, I discovered that my hazelnut creamer, although “non-dairy” still contained casein which is a milk protein. I had to find a replacement ASAP so I went on a hunt for a new creamer. After trying multiple almond milk, coconut milk, and oat milk creamers, I was about to give up until I realized I own The Ninja Specialty Coffee Maker, this magic device does much more than make your basic pot of coffee.

The Ninja coffee maker has a fold-away frother which is amazing if you enjoy specialty drinks and even an “over ice” option. I decided to become my own barista and began experimenting with multiple coffees, syrups, and plant-based milks. Below are the deliciously satisfying coffee recipes that I created. I might add, you don’t need to be following any dietary restrictions to try these recipes!

Needless to say, coffee without creamer or sugar is bland. However, I don’t enjoy using sugar in my coffee and that’s where the syrups, powders, and coffee flavors come into play. You can adjust each recipe to your liking by using more or less of an ingredient.

Also! Before I forget, you can use this delicious dairy-free whipped topping to top it all of!! Just click the image to see if it’s sold in a grocery store near you 🙂

I linked each product so you can purchase and use the exact one that I do. I find it easier when following a recipe if you can buy/find all of the items in one go. I hope you find it useful! I use Upouria coffee syrups and flavors more than other brands and they are also sold in bundles for a cheaper option Mocha & Hazelnut Bundle is one you’ll probably want for these recipes 🙂
