Milk and creamer in my coffee

There was no 3-in-1 coffee available so I had to make coffee the usual way. But there was no sugar and there was only creamer available. I did not want to drink like a diabetic (my former diabetic boss drink coffee with only creamer without sugar), so I substituted milk for sugar. The coffee did not taste any sweeter though, but at least it wasn't that bitter. I usually drink only milk but this morning I smelled good coffee in my co-worker's office and it made me want to drink coffee, too. Ever mixed both milk and creamer in your coffee?

I have never mixed both at once but I love that creamer that is flavored. I like the French Vanilla and the Hazelnut. I am not much of a coffee drinker but if I have that available...I will drink it too.

I don't drink alot of coffee but when I do I love the flavored creamers...like french vanilla....I have never used milk in it. I worked many years ago in an ice cream factory and we would put fresh ice cream in our coffee....it was sooooo delicious!

Ice cream in coffee?? That would make it iced coffee? Or the ice cream stays whole?

Wow, Jill, i haven't tried drinking coffee by putting ice-cream into it. It must be tastes very exotic and unusual, right. I might want to give it a try soon, when i have the chance to buy vanilla ice-cream. Can we put other ice-cream flavor to the coffee?

I never tried mixing both milk and creamer. I always mix my coffee with milk, to make white coffee. It tastes very delicious. If i use creamer in my coffee, i always mixed it with sugar. I never try mixing it with milk. Does it tastes nice that way? Maybe in future, i will give it a try, to see how is the taste of it...

I think it would have tasted nice if I put a lot of milk or a lot of creamer on the coffee. I just put one teaspoon of both and the coffee still tasted a little bitter.

To make a coffee tastes nice, you need to put 2 teaspoons milk. If you use creamer, then you need to put at least 3 teaspoons of it, to makes the coffee tastes nice and creamer. Always add a teaspoon of sugar to your creamer, as it makes the coffee taste nicer.

If there's a lot of creamer and sugar available, I always put one tablespoon of creamer and one teaspoon of sugar in my coffee.

Coffee does have an attractive smell. However, I am not satisified with cream with coffee only. I need the sugar! It is important for me that the coffee should be sweet since I never like bitter flavor. I love China

Same like you, Youless. I never like to drink bitter coffee. I will loss my appetite for the day if i ever drink any bitter coffee. That's why, i always make sure that my coffee must have either sugar or sweetened milk.

Mocha! (I remembered our office's resident dog, her name's mocha. ) I'll have to try making mocha sometimes. I haven't tried that. Coffee and milk only? No sugar?

Yeah :P Most of the time, I choose milk that's already sweetened (ever tried Selecta Fortified fresh milk? The blue one. Those types :P) so there's no need to add sugar :D Try doing mocha. It always perks me up during afternoon work hours (2pm-4pm) since I'm commonly sleepy at that time :P

I will try that! We have a few stock of evaporated milk at home so I might just use it.

Milk and creamer? That's too much for a coffee. It will take away the true aroma of coffee.. hehe. When i drink coffee, i will only add milk or sugar to it, if not creamer and sugar As i'm not fond of black coffee due to the bitter taste, so that's the best i can do to my coffee yet not spoiling the original taste of it.. hehe

Yes I do that sometimes. I put creamer to my coffee and I make the coffee strong. Then when it is strong already I put on milk. I love the taste, it is so creamy. Sometimes I even add chocolate to it to make it more creamier, but the results will be, diarrhea. . It is good to experiments on our favorite drinks, but just be ready for a not so good results in our body.

Our tea and coffee hassugar and milk in it, so it has the light brown color always, no one will drink the tea or coffee if it has no sugar, some times usually in summer, we make lemon tea, this has no milk, and 4-5 drops of lemon juice added. Because i have diebetes, to my tea sugarfree tablets are added, it is nothing but aspartame Thanks for sharing Best of luck. Professor
