I recently read about the option of putting evaporated milk in your coffee instead of a creamer.  Has anyone ever tried this?  I looked at the nutrition label on regular evaporated milk, as opposed to 2% or fat free, and it looks like a serving is 2 grams of fat and one serving seems to be half a can.  I wouldn't put even close to that amount in a cup of coffee, so I wonder if it's a good option.  I'm just wondering how ot tastes.

Tracey - it sounds like the calorie content of evaporated milk used in coffee isn't bad at all.  And fat-free evaporated milk is easily available too - doesn't that really reduce the calorie content?   I use it in lots of recipes but I don't use it in coffee.
Why don't you buy a can and try it yourself?
(I use dry Coffee Mate)

I have used evaporated milk in my coffee(usually just to use it up) and didn't care for it that much.  Personally I prefer the flavored creamers if I drink coffee at all anymore.

Putting canned milk in your coffee is no different than putting regular milk in it..I dilute my canned milk  with 1 1/2 cans of water to 1 can evaporated milk

when my oldest daughter was a toddler she would only drink evaporated milk..she still doesnt drink alot of milk

GRANA  here;Hi TRACEY C;
we both drink our coffee &tea
BLACK
ISITORS
may either bringtheir wn creamer or use our evap milk; since t's lways in my pantry for baking& coking.Since learned that non-dairy c reamer is  not  good for cholesterol;I refuse to buy it.
The evap. milk  Iuse is fat free, but low fat or regular might be more pleasing.It seems I always have some left after using it in my half size recipes; the little tubbettes of cream I bought once, went bad efore my company got ere.He was still in the navy & leave wasd delayed due to internatonal hapenings
.
Evap milk works but  obviously doesn'thave the taste of creamTongue out

Hmmm...thanks for the input!  I'm a die-hard Coffeemate user, but read about evap. milk as a healthier alternative.  I just don't find regular milk creamy enough at all.  I think next time I have evap. milk in the house I'll give it a try, but doesn't sound like it's worth getting a can for coffee purposes only!

I agree Tracey ---- I use just a very small amount of Coffee Mate each day so, for me, see no reason to change to something like evaporated milk that will spoil even if stored in 'fridge.
