So I found this site http://deliciouslyorganic.net/homemade-coffee-crea
3 cup. almond milk (home made no additives)
1/4 vanilla bean (sliced down the center and scraped into the milk.)
1 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup splenda or Sweetener of your choice
place 3 cups homemade almond milk in saucepan with vanilla bean and on medium low heat slowly stirring every few minutes until milk is reduced to 1 1/2 cups. Cool milk. add cream and sweetener of your choice. Store in sealed jar in fridge for up to 7 days.
You can add other flavors such as
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (add to the milk when reducing)
3 tablespoons pureed pumpkin and 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
i still am trying this with cocoa powder but not sure if it will work yet.

Where do you find it Barb? I haven/t seen it since I visited friends who lived in remote parts of Mexico without electricity for refrigeration. That was more than forty years ago.

You need to take account of all carbs. That is not quite the same as counting carbs. I take account by testing after meals or drinks to see their effects; I read my meter as well as nutrition labels.
That was how I discovered that coffee with lots of milk in the morning spiked me but coffee with a little pure cream did not. In that usage, cream is milk without the carbs.
Many "creamers" are a chemical soup; I would avoid them for that reason even if they did not also contain a lot of carbs for their size.
