Butter Coffee Creamer: Four Ways
Creamer - it's not just for coffee anymore
Just a couple months ago, we introduced our newest product, and the very first of its kind, Picnik Creamer made with MCT oil, grass-fed butter, and grass-fed whey protein. Since that day we have, well, been adding it to everything - our morning smoothie, cookies, savory dinner meals, and even created a creamsicle ice pop recipe with it.
Today, we are thrilled to share four new recipes with you here. Because really, who doesn't want another reason to enjoy this decadent and functional creamer?
Black Cherry Italian Soda
This creation was a huge hit around our office and we plan on enjoying it whenever and wherever we can - mocktails, BBQs, pre-dinner drinks, you name it, this drink is there!⠀
It's so very simple to make made with only three key ingredients: ⠀
- Topo Chico or the carbonated water of your choosing⠀
- Black cherry juice concentrate (you can use any juice concentrate but we particularly loved this combo)⠀
- Picnik Creamer
- In a large glass, fill with ice and add 5 ounces Topo Chico (a little over 1/2 way full)⠀
- Next, add 3 ounces black cherry juice concentrate (we used RW Knudsen brand)⠀
- Finally, add 2 ounces Picnik Creamer (the equivalent to a heavy handed splash)⠀
Mix, garnish, and sip! ⠀
Mint Chip Green Smoothie
