Coconut Milk Creamer

For all of those who are lactose intolerant of just prefer to go dairy free there is a new coffee creamer alternative. Coconut milk based creamer. So Delicious Dairy Free has come out with a line of Coconut milk creamers that I recently tried. I have to admit, although I’m a fan of full fat real cream, I found their creamer to be pretty good. With the taste and creaminess of it, I wouldn’t have known it was non-dairy. It’s a big step up from the powdered creamers and a great alternative to soy milk.

What they say about themselves

Slide over Soymilk and move over milk, So Delicious Original Coconut Milk Beverage is here! This delicious beverage goes great on cereal, in coffee, mix into recipes and poured into a tall glass.

Alec Baldwin Not Happy With His Barista

Alec Baldwin is not having a good morning.  He stopped by Starbucks this morning and then tweeted “Starbucks on 93 and B’way. Uptight Queen barrista [sic] named JAY has an attitude problem.,”  He went on to tweet “Clyde, on the other hand, outside DINOSAUR BARBECUE @ W 125 n H River is MY MAN,” he tweeted. “Keeping the hickory ovens going, he is 2dayz Coolest NYer.”  The New York Post was interested in this “barista incident” so they contacted the Starbucks in question only to find that no one by the name of JAY worked there.  This goes to show that no one can function property until their morning dose of caffeine has kicked in!

Kids, Coffee and ADHD, A Cure in A Cup?

Christie Haskell, blogger for Cafe Mom’s “The Stir” gives her seven year old son coffee first thing in the morning and follows it up with an extra dose later in the day. She revealed her “treatment” for her son’s ADHD on ABC News.

Mrs. Haskell claims that coffee keeps her son focused in the classroom and helps keep his behavioral issues in check. In short, she is using caffeine to treat his ADHD. She claims it works like a charm.

“He doesn’t overreact if we ask him to pick up Legos, rather than screaming and throwing himself on the floor,” Haskell told ABC. “And if we ask him to sit down and do homework, he can actually do it.”

Common symptoms of ADHD include inattentiveness, impulsivity and hyperactivity. A recent study released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that nearly one in 10 American children are diagnosed with ADHD. Traditionally this disorder is treated with Ritalin and behavior therapy. However as many as two-thirds of kids diagnosed with ADHD have used some form of alternative treatment, according to the NY Times.
