Preparing a morning cup of coffee can be like a ritual – special mug, just this much sugar and that many creamers. But could that morning cup- and those to follow- be derailing efforts to lower your cholesterol?

What is non-dairy creamer anyway?

A look at one brands’ ingredient list reveals: Water, sugar, partially hydrogenated soybean and/or cottonseed oil, sodium caseinate (a milk derivative)**, mono- and diglycerides, dipotassium phosphate, color added, cellulose gel, natural and artificial flavors, cellulose gum, carrageenan, dextrose.

How many of those ingredients do you associate with a delicious cup of coffee? The 3rd ingredient is especially troubling. Partially hydrogenated oil is a trans fat. It has been shown to both raise “bad” (LDL) cholesterol and lower “good” (HDL) cholesterol! Plus, a one tablespoon serving is a whopping 35 calories. Most people don’t stop at just one. Some even take in over 400 calories a day just in coffee creamer! Time to make a switch.

A Healthier Alternative

Ditch the trans fat, artificial ingredients, and some calories by lightening your joe a natural way. Try popular non-dairy milks, found in nearly any grocery store. With the variety available, you are sure to find one you like. Use Non-GMO Soy, or Almond plus a ½ scoop of Nutrim to make a delicious creamer substitute that will actually help lower your cholesterol naturally. Find the simple recipe here.
