    I found sugar-free French Vanilla creamer (dry creamer). It might change the taste, but I bet it will be good. I bought the regular because it has less calories and carbs. Haven't tried it yet, but very easy and can't wait to try it.

    Knowing this is so low in fat and sugar makes this mix especially delicious. I add a couple Tbsps of Sugar-Free Toasted Marshmellow coffee syrup to sweeten it up a bit. Exceptional!

    If worried about it being sugar free, could you make the mix without the powdered dairy creamer and then add sugar free liquid creamer as you make each cup?

    Is this really sugar free? Most nondairy creamers have a first ingredient of corn syrup solids which is just another kind of sugar

    This is great - but I found that if made in the food processor it becomes finer and mixes easier making it more like commerical product. YAH
