It’s Friday! And while I am currently harboring in my office and enjoying the central air conditioning, I’m also warming my hands on a cup of coffee. It’s my first cup of coffee in probably a month. Now, I’m not noble, I was never that into coffee. However, I was totally craving a hot cup from Dunkin Donuts (shameless plug?) and ordered a small black to customize myself at home.
My biggest gripe with ordering coffee is that there is no dairy free options at a lot of places nor are there other sweeteners besides artificial. So I added some coconut milk and maple syrup to a mug at home, stirred in my DD coffee, and voila dairy and sugar free. That got me thinking about all my substitutions and how I’d love to share my most used ones with you, below. If you use some that I don’t have, please let me know!
Use this: For this:
Coconut Oil Any cooking oil
Plain Non-fat Greek Yogurt Mayo or Sour Cream
100% Pure Maple Syrup Sugar
(RAW) Honey Sugar
Coconut/Rice/Almond Milk Cow’s Milk
This list is not all encompassing, but good options for common foods. An infographic below as well.
Have a happy and healthy weekend!
