We are officially on holidays and couldn’t be happier; sitting here sipping my coffee and homemade Baileys, anticipating the days to come and reflecting on the amazing year that was had. It’s these simple moments before the day begins that I really want to savour more often. The calmness and joy that comes from sitting and enjoying a cup of java rather than rushing out the door with a cup in hand. And with the holidays amongst us, your regular cup of joe can become much more festive with this quick and easy clean Irish Cream.
For the last two years, I have been loving my homemade Coconut Baileys Irish Cream, but this year wanted to try a recipe that didn’t involve stove time and one that was a bit lighter on the calories. Here comes my newest version, Almond Coconut Irish Cream.
It’s healthier, cleaner, dairy-free, paleo-friendly, vegan friendly and pretty amazing in my opinion. It’s easy to double or triple the recipe and makes for a great gift giving idea too!
Almond Coconut Irish Cream (yields 16 oz)
- 1/2 cup Irish Whiskey
- 1/2 cup + 2 Tbs canned coconut milk
- 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup espresso or strong coffee, cooled
- 2 tbsp maple syrup or 2 medjool dates work great too (add more or less to your liking)
- dash of cinnamon
Put all the ingredients into blender and mix
Pour the Homemade Clean Irish Cream into a bottle/ airtight container and store in the fridge for 2-3 weeks
- Shake well before serving
Happy Holidays! xx
