I am not a morning person. You will rarely see me up before the sun. I’ve tried and failed more times than I can count to rise early if for no other reason than to have a few minutes to myself. It just doesn’t work. I’m usually awoken by a 3 year old climbing up in my bed for snuggles and baby girl yelling “MOM MOM MOM MAMAMAMA!” as loud as she can from her crib.
Coffee has been apart of my mornings for as long as I can remember. When I was little, my Gangan would make me a cup of coffee on the weekends. She always cooked breakfast and had my sweet coffee ready- it was more milk and sugar than coffee. Coffee isn’t just a treat these days- it’s almost necessary!
How many bottles does one person need?
It wasn’t until 2009 (yes, I totally remember!) that I discovered something that would change my coffee forever- Coffee-Mate creamer. French vanilla, to be exact. I had some coupons that made the creamer super cheap, so I picked up a couple bottles. That was all it took. Coupons or no coupons, I have to have my Coffee-Mate now.
So when given the opportunity to shop for and try out the new Natural Bliss creamers from Coffee-Mate, I could not say no. After printing some coupons, hubby and I went to Walmart specifically for Natural Bliss creamer. While there we picked up a couple other items, but really Coffee-Mate was the star of the show. I bought my old stand by too- French Vanilla. They only had one big bottle left and it took some work, but we finally got it out. You can see our full shopping trip including photos of my sweet husband struggling to get this one last creamer for me over at my Google+ Natural Bliss Coffee-Mate album.
The new Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss creamers have only 4 ingredients and come in three delicious flavors- vanilla (low-fat is available now too!), caramel, and sweet cream. It’s no surprise that the Vanilla Natural Bliss creamer is my favorite! It tastes almost identical to the French Vanilla creamer but is made with only four natural ingredients- milk, cream, sugar, and natural vanilla flavor. Even better, it only has 35 calories per serving or if you go with the low-fat vanilla, it only has 20 calories per serving. The only problem I have with it is that so far, I’ve only found small 16oz bottles. This mama needs the biggest bottle possible to get me through the week! I did see on the Natural Bliss Facebook page that there are 32oz containers available, I just haven’t been able to find them at our local stores yet.
Mmmm.. delicious. Bliss? Definitely.
Where do you find your morning bliss?
If like me, you find it in a good cup of coffee, you’ll want to print this coupon to save $1 off 2 bottles of Natural Bliss creamer.

I don’t drink coffee but Brian does and enjoys the French Vanilla Coffee-mate! I will have to look for the Natural Bliss kind the next time we are at the store!
I’ve tried this and love it! I especially appreciate that it is made with real milk and cream and sugar and flavoring, it’s not a bunch of chemicals. The caramel is my favorite flavor.
I love me some coffee! I am not really a vanilla person in fact I love the Coffee-Mate Amaretto best, but I am totally digging the caramel flavor;p
My grandpa used to make me coffee like that when I was little-I thought I was hot stuff;)
I find my morning bliss in my coffee, too. I love waking up before my daughter and having a few minutes to sit down and just relax with a hot cup of joe. The Natural Bliss just makes it that much better!
[…] sleep, I decided to throw in the towel and face the morning… at 4:30AM. Considering that I am not a morning person at all, even I am surprised. It was just one of those nights where my brain refused to shut off. It […]
I completely agree – coffee is a luxury, yes, but also a necessity! LOL!
Have you tried the Cafe` Mocha one? It is delicious, honestly that best one I have tried. But, I LOVE mocha.
