Tuesday Trade Up: Coffee Creamers


 


Do you crave your morning cup of coffee? I sure do! Next time you are picking out coffee creamer consider this: Your typical French vanilla coffee creamer has a NuVal score of 1! With nutrient values of 35 calories, 1.5 g of fat, 30 mg of sodium, 5 g of sugar all in just 1 tbsp of creamer its no wonder these products scored such a low NuVal number.

However there is good news for all you coffee drinkers! Silk French Vanilla Coffee Creamer not only tastes exceptional, but it is much better for you! Silk scores an 8 on the NuVal scale with only 20 calories, 1 g of fat, 0g of cholesterol, 10 mg of sodium, and 3 g of sugar in 1 tbsp! So next time you go to grab creamer at the store consider this Trade Up for a healthier ‘Good Morning’ to start to your day!
