For all my fellow coffee drinkers out there , what do you do about milk in your morning coffee?

  • My only real problem on this ignite is my morning coffee. I only llike it with milk and can't give it up. I tried rice milk but it was pretty bad.
    any ideas?

    I use coconut milk. Not the watered down "beverage" version you buy in the refrigerated section, but the canned stuff you use to make curry. Just shake it up really good.

      I second this. I love a splash of coconut milk in my coffee.

      Third it. Works well. Also Almond milk. Though to be honest I've actually almost dropped the milk from coffee and now mostly drink it black. After a while the taste difference is minimal.

    I use a splash of canned coconut milk if I am trying to simulate a creamy coffee, or a splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk if I just want some extra flavor.

    It definitely takes some getting used to, almond milk and soy milk are better alternatives in my opinion. Vanilla Almond Breeze is my "milk" of choice. If there's a health food store in your area they have flavored soy/coconut creamers as well. Nice and thick, less of a sacrifice :-) Also, try making your coffee stronger so you need less and its less watery all together, I find this really helps with flavor and consistency.

    Have you ever considered goats milk? Its much easier on the digestive system and has a unique taste that I can't get enough of after making the switch!

    Good luck :-)

    Don't get so caught up in follow a meal plan verbatim. They are set there as guidelines to give you a track in which to follow. Fat Free Milk is a great additive to your coffee. Try mixing 2 cups coffee, 1/2 cup FF Milk and 2 scoops chocolate Whey into a shaker, mix, and enjoy!

      But the whole point of Ignite is to avoid 6 ingredients for 21 days.

    I know you're doing Ignite, so you've probably already dropped milk, but as a flavored latte drinker a few years ago I slowly weaned myself off all milk and sugar in my coffee and have never looked back. It only took about a week, if you were willing to do that before starting Ignite. Black coffee is supposed to help your metabolism, too... Just my two cents, but you really do get a lot more from the flavor of coffee when you don't add anything to it, so it's only a problem when I visit somewhere and have to drink swill.

      Yeah - if you can - I suggest trying to drink black coffee for 21 days. After that you will like it - that is my experience. Also, drink good coffee! Drinking good coffee black is a lot easier than drinking the bad stuff.
