Pintervention Week 5

I know I've mentioned my intense feelings about Coffeemate Coconut Cream creamer.

If you haven't had it, you just can't understand.  You can try, but it will be hard.

This weeks Pintervention was to make my own diy coffee syrup.

Of course, I chose coconut.

Here's what you do:

Gather your ingredients.

I ended up changing the sugar out for xylitol.  I also used my fudge pan. 

Here's what you need:

¾ cup sugar
¾ cup water
¼ cups cream of coconut*
2 tsp. coconut extract

Combine the sugar, water and cream of coconut in a small saucepan.   Heat the mixture over medium-high, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and stir in the coconut extract.  Let cool.  Store in the refrigerator.

I've been using this for about a week. 

It is not my Coffee mate. 

But it is good. 

I don't see myself switching to this full time, but it will do if I need to make some up in a pinch. 

Check out Annies Eats for more of her flavored syrups.

I totally know what you mean. While I haven't tried the coconut, I am addicted to the French Vanilla. I don't normally drink coffee, but when I do I like it loaded with sugar and milk and flavor. I will have to try this lady's recipe and add some milk to the cup. Yummy!

The syrup is actually very good....it's just not what I'm used to. I guess when it comes to my coffee, I'm just a creature of habit.
