If you live under a rock, we have been following The Whole 30 guide since January 1. We started this program to use it as a detox from sugar and junk food, which we have found ourselves addicted to. If you haven’t already, read why we chose this program and what our plans are after the 30 days. The plan does not allow any of my “beloveds” – dairy and sugar. Therefore… we can’t have a little coffee with our cream. I don’t know about you coffee drinkers, but if you are used to warm brown coffee, it’s a little difficult to get used to drinking coffee hot and black. That’s where my little friend, Nutpods, a non-dairy creamer that is Whole 30 approved, comes in.
I want to start out by saying I’m not at all getting paid for this review. I’m writing this to pass along some information that I’ve found. Just like the post on natural deodorants and why you need to detox your smelly hog barn armpits, I thought it is something you, my little bloggy friends, should know about.
In a nutshell, ???? pun intended, Nutpods is a smooth, unsweetened creamer made from coconuts and almonds that is supposed to help satisfy your non-dairy cravings. It comes in flavors vanilla, hazelnut, and the original form, which is like half and half. It is great for people following the paleo plan, vegan lifestyle, and The Whole 30 plan. Free from all nasty chemicals, Nutpods offers you a way to drink warm, brown coffee and still remain healthy. It is, also, perfect for diabetics as it is sugar free.
I ordered my Nutpods variety pack online because I knew I would never find it here in our small town. And, with Amazon Prime, it was on my doorstep in exactly two days. ????
The following is my personal experience and review of Nutpods. I ordered the variety pack so that I could try each different flavor and give my honest review of them all. Therefore I’ve sampled each one for two weeks, switching between flavors so that I could really see what the difference was. I had high hopes of finding that sweet creamy taste that I was so used to.
They are packaged in a cardboard container with a spout which can be stored in your pantry until open. After that, they must be refrigerated. I was first shocked at how small the containers were. I knew how fast we went through regular old coffee creamer and figured this small package would be gone in two days.
I was initially disappointed when I tried it for the first time, as it tasted “dull” to me. I was in the thick of detoxing from sugar and was truly missing that sweet taste. But in all honesty, what the hell was I thinking? Did I really think I could manipulate the Whole 30 police ????????♀️ and find something that tasted delicious like my beloved coffee creamer that wasn’t filled with chemicals and sugar? Especially when it is labeled as chemical and sugar-free? ???? Come on now. ????????♀️
I did notice, however, that the bitterness of black coffee had disappeared. And that my coffee was now warm and brown. Those were two good things.
The hazel nut and vanilla really just tasted like I was drinking a flavored coffee that was cream colored. The original tasted just like coffee with half and half.
I said above that I was initially disappointed in how small the packaging was. I was pleasantly surprised at how little Nutpods you need in each cup of coffee. Therefore, Nutpods lasts a lot longer than I expected.
Like I said above, it takes the bitter flavor out of black coffee by using just a small amount. Which in turn makes the smaller packaging last a lot longer than I initially thought it would. It obviously doesn’t have that sweet flavor which took a few days for me to get used to. But, it gives your coffee that creamy consistency…. which is what I love. So, if you are struggling drinking black coffee, you should definately try Nutpods. I will, for sure, be buying it again.
Buh bye now, said in an old lady’s voice who needs another cup of coffee now that I think about it.
