I get offers to review products every day in my inbox and honestly, I pass on 90% of them because they are not products I feel good enough about to tell all my friends. However, when I got the opportunity from the MomCentral team to do a review of the new Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss line of coffee creamers, I said yes. Why? I had already seen the Natural Bliss line of creamers in my local store and had actually looked at the bottle and noted the fact that it only contains 4 fabulous, all-natural ingredients. I had it on my list to pick up on an upcoming shopping trip anyhow.
As part of the Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss blog tour I received four coupons for a free Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss – three for me so I could try all three flavors and one for a RaisingAHealthyFamily.com reader. Read on to find out how easy it is for you to enter…
But, first my review! The Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss creamers only contain 4 ingredients – real non-fat milk, heavy cream, sugar and natural flavors – all for 35 little calories a tablespoon – and only 5g of sugar. This is the same number of calories and sugar as the traditional line of Coffee-Mate non-dairy creamers but the traditional line’s list of ingredients is a mile long of words I can’t pronounce. Based on that fact alone, my coffee may never see any other creamer other than Natural Bliss.
How do they taste? Dreamy. I have tried all three flavors – Sweet Cream, Caramel and Vanilla – and I like them all, but I have to say the Sweet Cream flavor is by far my favorite! You can tell they are all natural – there is no chemical taste left in your mouth. Let’s just say that the combination of my Newman’s Own Special Blend coffee from my Keurig coffee maker and the Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss creamers give Starbucks a real run for their money. Actually I would rather make my own perfect cup of coffee at home most of the time.
Last winter the kids got in the habit of using my French Vanilla creamer to cool down and sweeten up their oatmeal in the mornings. So, I had to try the Natural Bliss Sweet Cream on my Apple Cinnamon oatmeal last week – Oh. My. Yummy!! So good. My youngest tested out the Vanilla flavor on hers and has decided her oatmeal is just not the same without it. The Coffee-Mate website has a bunch of recipes that call for their Natural Bliss creamers (and other products) if you want to get really creative.
