Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss and Caramel Banana Nut Muffins

 

I have used a lot of different creamers in the last year.  I didn’t drink coffee for many years and when I finally started, I got hooked on flavored coffees.  I don’t want just a cup of black, it has to be sweet and flavored for me!  :)

So when I was given the change to try Coffee-Mate’s Natural Bliss creamers, I was definitely on board.  Most of the creamers in my local stores don’t come in great flavors, so I’ve usually ended up having to buy fancy (expensive) coffee syrups and flavors.  If I could find something that tasted great and that I could pick up during my weekly grocery shopping, that would be awesome.  

Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss Creamers are all made with four ingredients: cream, milk, sugar and natural flavorings. That’s all! 

Have you seen what most other creamers are made of?  Chemicals and artificial additives, not actual cream and natural flavors.  According to foodfacts.com, another popular creamer contains these ingredients:  WaterSugarSoybean Oil Partially Hydrogenated,Corn SyrupContains less than 22% of Carrageenan,Mono and DiglyceridesSodium Stearoyl Lactylate,SaltDipotassium PhosphateSodium Caseinate A Milk DerivativeFlavor(s) Natural & Artificial. I’m not sure how to pronounce all of them, but I know I don’t want them!

So last week we headed to Walmart and picked up some Caramel, Sweet Cream and Vanilla Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss creamers.

I’ve been enjoying them all week with my coffee and decided to try something new with them today.  I made a batch of Banana-Nut muffins and added a little of the Caramel Natural Bliss.

 They aresooooo good!  I left out some of the milk and butter and added the Caramel Natural Bliss instead.  

 

There’s just a hint of caramel in the muffins, so next time I think I’ll add even more Natural Bliss.  And I had to enjoy them with my Caramel coffee, of course!  :)

I’ve found a lot of great looking Natural Bliss recipes online and can’t wait to try more.  If you have one, be sure to share it in the comments below!
