coffee: how do you lighten?

Recommended Posts

Guest peachkala

I am a serious coffee head and can't live without my cup o'joe in the morning. I have been using 1 cup of fat free half and half to lighten it (3 points per cup) but wondering if you all have any other creative solutions. Really don't like skim in my coffee and drinking it black...can't go there.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I use the fat free half and half, typically 1/4 cup is all I need for my cup of coffee and that comes to one point. I find that it gets it to exactly the color I like it with fewer points than skim milk does... and still feels rich.

I heat up a half cup of skim (I've learned to really like it) and fill the rest of the cup with coffee from my Senseo machine. I put in a few squirts of Davinci sugar free syrup and it's a really nice drink! Tastes pretty decadent even. And I'm getting in the dairy.
