Here in Tahiti many people use evaporated milk instead of cream in their coffee. If you buy the sweetened evaporated milk you shouldn't need to add any sugar to your coffee.

  • Is evaporated milk good for you?
  • Because canned milk is condensed or evaporated, this is far more than the 146 calories per cup in regular whole milk. ... Most of the fat in canned milk derives from saturated fat, an unhealthy variety of fat that may result in clogged arteries if you consume too much.

  • 1-tbsp vanilla extract (the cheap stuff will do, I cant taste a difference)
  • Add 2 tablespoons of your choice of flavoring.

Creamer is a substitute for milk. If you replace creamer, you can use milk.
