Keto Irish Cream and Santa's Little Helper Drink of the Week

In the summer when we went camping with our niece and nephew, they would always bring Irish Cream for morning coffee.  We are camping so morning drinking is allowed, and this is a no judge zone.

Well, they moved and I will be responsible for my own Irish Cream for my coffee. So I began to look for a Keto version I could make. This is easy to make and a little too easy to drink!  I'll be ready for camping 5 months.  In the meantime I'll just have to be happy with Irish Cream in my coffee on Sunday, before brunch and my mimosa.

This will also be part of my Christmas drink of the week.  I love peppermint and the combination of peppermint with the Irish Cream is so delicious. Santa's Little Helper will be one of my go to drinks this season, I get more than one drink of the week this time of year.
