1. Almond Milk
Almond Milk is a great way to add a creaminess to your coffee without all those added calories from sugar in regular creamers, not only is it a great vegan option but also low calorie.
Unsweetened almond milk has 40 calories per 8 ounce cup but, but for most people 8 ounces is far too much dilution in their coffee. you’ll find your average calorie consumption per cup of coffee coming in around 20 calories or even less depending on how you like it
2. Vanilla Extract
Is an interesting way to add flavor to your coffee I personally suggest mixing almond milk or regular milk with it because it can become too strong of a flavor especially when used in excess. Nonetheless it’s a great way to add a little extra character to any cup of coffee

If you grew up drinking eggnog during Christmas time you probably have had this spice in your cup at some point, try it in your coffee to help make a more aromatic and nutty flavor alongside cinnamon, milk and vanilla extract, or do it another way.
