It’s no secret to any of you that I’m a huge coffee drinker. So much so that when I go without having my morning coffee I’m the slightly grouchier, over tired, cranky version of my normally happy self. I love coffee so much that many of you have joined me on a Friday or two for a virtual coffee date.
In the past I’ve loaded my coffee up with Coffee Mate’s Vanilla Creamer. I tend to blow through it because I’m one of those, “ummm do you want some coffee with your creamer?” kind of coffee gals. You can go ahead and admit it, you know you are too. Well now that I’m working out with my gal pal Jillian Michaels and we’re working on our 30-day shred, it was time to start cutting calories in my everyday life. I contemplated cutting out a meal, I mean who really needs breakfast, but quickly learned that coffee + no breakfast = a very over caffeinated shaky lady.
So…. I was beyond excited when I heard that Coffee Mate had come out with an all natural creamer. I’m talking all natural, like only 4 ingredients, no preservatives and way healthier for you kind of natural. Ummm, insert one very excited lady here. Off I went to Walmart in search of Coffee Mates Natural Bliss Creamer, but not before I printed this super great coupon first. It was really easy to find in Walmart’s refrigerator section. I was a little bummed they only had one of the three available flavors, but since I love vanilla creamer so much, my sadness was short-lived.
I brought it home, tried it and loved it! The flavor is great, in fact I love the more subtle vanilla taste in my coffee, but what I really love is that it’s all natural and only contains four ingredients: milk and cream, sugar and vanilla. It also is great for people who need to find products that are gluten free. So you’re welcome gluten free eaters, you can now go back to drinking coffee with lots of yummy creamer like me.
To see more of my shopping adventure you can check out my Google+ Album. You can also read more about Coffee Mate Natural Bliss creamer and follow them on Facebook to hear about their latest flavors and coupons. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to enjoy another cup of coffee and catch up on my DVR’d shows.
Are you a gotta have creamer in my coffee kinda girl too? Have you tried the new Natural Bliss creamer yet?
First of all I love your mug!
I used to hate coffee. Thought it was the most disgusting thing ever!
Then, I had my baby boy and was like “pleaseeeee give me coffee so I can stay awake.” =) I started off drinking hot coffee with creamer, but then somehow my husband and I got addicted to starbucks iced mochas (what do they put in that stuff to make it SO good?) and because of that we bought an espresso machine to make our own. But somehow we still end up at starbucks way more than we should.
Its hard to live without coffee… glad you found something that helps it be better!

I love this stuff!

I can ONLY drink coffee that is all creamered up. I have the huge tubs of General Foods International French Vanilla in my cupboard (I get them at Smart and Final for $8 a pop – MUCH cheaper than Stbks!). I would love to try this next time we come over to visit! 🙂
Joanne Bachran says
Awesome…gluten free!!! Now if we could just find one that is dairy free too I’d be able to drink it!!!!
Joanne, I’m assuming you are lactose intolerant – I am too! For years I thought that creamer was dairy and it’s actually dairy free! You should totally check it out!
Joanne Bachran says
Kristina, really?? I looked at the ingredients on several creamers and they all have some kind of dairy. I’ll check again because drinking coffee black is awful!!!
I’m absolutely a creamer in my coffee kind of girl when I drink it! I haven’t tried the natural bliss, but I’ll definitely add it to the list!
I love the Natural Bliss line i think I have tried them all! Sweet Cream is my favorite! I add it to my iced Starbucks coffee singles in the afternoon….YUM!
I, like you, LOVE Coffeemate’s french vanilla creamer. I am totally brand loyal to it, and I think that any cup of coffee that doesn’t have that in it is subpar! I’ve been on WW two separate times, and made sure to leave room in my day for that creamer – I just can’t live without it! So I was REALLY excited to see this Natural Bliss stuff – not only for the calorie factor, but because..well…it is more natural and I’m all for the organic movement. So I bought some, brewed an afternoon pot just to try it – and I was SO disappointed. I didn’t think it tasted *anything* like their normal vanilla creamer. It was like having sugar & milk with a hint of vanilla flavor. I really really REALLY wanted to switch, so I was sad about that 🙁 I’ve only tried their vanilla, though, so maybe another flavor would suit me better? I like my coffee to be thick and sweet with creamer!! 🙂
I’m one of those grouchy without coffee people, too. Thank goodness for Natural Bliss that makes it so much better!

I go through creamer like nobody’s business too!
