What do you put in your coffee?



Recommended Posts

So what is a bariatric plan friendly way to drink decaff coffee? So before getting myself weaned off caffeine I enjoyed cold brew coffee with vanilla Creamer. My surgeon does not allow caffeine after surgery (or at least for awhile). So I have already got myself drinking Decaf cold brew with a splash of sugar free creamer. What does everyone drink in their coffee that is bariatric plan friendly? Also yes I know everyones plan is different but Id like to hear ideas.

where are you finding Decaf cold brew????

But, most people mix cold brew with a protien shake.

I do hot decaf coffee with a collegen creamer. but dont mix collagen in cold it doesnt blend well

I don't personally do this because I don't like sweet coffee, but I know a lot of people put Protein Powder in their coffee as a creamer. That way they get a good shot of Protein, too!

So I have a cold brew maker from Amazon. Basically a large mason jar with a wire filter in it. I fill it with cold Water and put in the filter and add 1 cup of decaf coffee grounds. It goes in the fridge overnight and I pull out the filter and its ready to go

I use my Protein Shake mix or sugar free creamer. And I went back to regular coffee right away... no issue

I am not a huge coffee drinker and only like it cold. I am more of a "coffee drink" type of person.

Yanno, those super sweet decadent high calorie, tons of sugary coffee FLAVORED drinks (basically desserts)?

So now after surgery, I just add coffee to caramel shakes to get that "coffee drink" fix.

Tons of people use sugar free Creamers, and sugar free flavors though. I haven't found a flavor Syrup that doesn't taste like pure chemicals so I stopped wasting my money and just do the shakes.

Half and half and a scoop of Vital Proteins vanilla collagen (and before anyone jumps all over me for even uttering the word "collagen" I AM NOT COUNTING IT TOWARD MY Protein GOALS, it just makes my skin look nicer), and a couple splendas.

I have been using Jordan's Skinny syrups to add a splash of flavor (found on amazon), splenda, and a sugar free liquid creamer. I like blended coffees, so I add everything in a blender cup with some ice, and let it go to town.

I really like the vanilla caramel, and the vanilla pecan Syrup flavors. I found these back in my Optavia days and actually kept using them even when I wasn't actively trying to lose weight or eat healthier. Topped with some sugar free whipped cream, and it's actually better than a frappe from that place that's lovin' it.

If I am lacking Protein, I will make a strong expresso and add skimmed milk like a latte I suppose. Thankfully coffee has never been vetoed for me

Jordan's Skinny syrups are really good and have a wide variety of flavors for coffee and other drinks as well. In my opinion, they are much better than all the others I have tried. Zero cal, zero sugar, zero Protein for 2 tablespoons. I bought mine at TJ Maxx. You can get them on Amazon but are considerable higher in price than TJ Maxx. I have tried about 8 flavors, my favorite is Vanilla Caramel Creme. Actually tastes like it has creamer in your coffee. Word of caution: Jordan's Skinny Syrups are quite strong with flavor and sweetener. Start with a small amount, a teaspoon at a time, until you determine how much you want. A little goes a long way.

I put 1/2 c of silk cashew milk, 2 tsp of Besha Verisol collagen supplement, 1 tsp of Miralax, and a tablespoon of chobani creamer. Depending upon the type of coffee, I will add a serving of Cocoavia cardio health cocoa powder (unsweetened dark chocolate).

i drank Premier Protein café flavor for the first couple months. After that I started drinking regular coffee. I use sugar free Creamer and Stevia sugar sweetener. I have a couple cups a day.

I use premade Protein Shakes as creamer in hot coffee. In cold brew I use sugar free syrups and almond milk. Really the only change from pre surgery is the shakes vs creamer in hot coffee. I need the extra Protein most days, so it works for me.

      Still purging all of the larger clothing. This morning, a shirt that I ADORED wearing ended up on top. Hard to let it go, but it was also hard to let go of those habits that also no longer serve my highest good. Onward and upward!

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!
