Here's what Nutrition Support said:.
"You can have up to 1-2 tbsp of nonfat creamer. When it is flavored creamer though, make sure to be aware of the nutritional content. Sometimes flavored creamers are higher in carbohydrates."..
I just find that 1 tsp (and even 2 or 3 tsps.) of fat free dry creamer don't do it for me and the 1/2 and 1/2 is richer so I need a lot less. So, it has more fat but less carbs and I can do with less. -Becky..
You get a whole TBS of liquid sugarfree creamer compared to 1 tsp dry for the same 1g carb. It's better to go liquid than dry...
I've taken creamer off my list of foods. I have switched to using my coffee through an espresso machine. It tastes so much better and I don't need to add creamer or splenda. Win-win situation...
Some days I put my hot coffee into the blender along with a dutch choc packet, that way I bypass having creamer every day! Seems like everyone needs to figure out what works best for them! Good luck!..

Pat in So. Cal - thanks for enquiring about my adorable little dog. She's a teddy bear which is a shihtzu bishon mix - - just over one and the light of my day - (besides my daughter of course).
Have a great day!!!..
I usually take my coffee black so creamers have'nt been an issue. However, the other day I mixed a French Vanilla Shake with the coffee with a packet of Splenda. It was a treat and I managed to have a meal at the same time. Next time I am going to try it iced..
