5. Add “nutty taste” to your coffee:

Almond milk is a non-dairy product, and can act as a sweetener in place of sugar, providing less than half of the unwanted calories. Its unsweetened version may contain even less than 30 calories a cup. Want to add more ‘nutty taste’ to your beverage? Try adding some coconut milk or cashew milk. These nut derived milk products can act as ideal creamers and sweeteners for your coffee.

The fascinating smell of home-made vanilla cake comes mostly by the virtue of the vanilla extract. It is one of the best ways to sweeten your coffee in a healthy manner, since it imparts a delightful vanilla taste to your beverage besides saving you from extra calorie intake. Add two to three drops of the extract in your cup of coffee. You may adjust the amount according to your taste.

It is an artificial sweetener that is derived from corn stalks and birch trees. Xylitol contains a considerably low glycemic index and 1/3rd of the total calories that normal sugar contains. You may use it in place of the regular sugar to sweeten your daily cup of coffee. Xylitol can give you the same taste with lesser chances of gaining weight.
