These days there are tons of different vegan creamer options to choose from at the store. It's a good thing too — nothing's better with a Krispy Kreme donut
(or copycat, at least) than a creamy cup of coffee. It used to be that you could only find soy half-and-half, but now you can find creamers made from coconuts or almonds, and there's even some designed specifically for espresso drinks, so get ready to make those rainbow lattes
! It can be daunting trying to choose the best one for your needs, but here are some of our favorites. With any of these 11 options, you'll be sipping pretty.
So Delicious Dairy Free Original Coconut Milk Creamer ($3):
If you're avoiding soy, So Delicious has this dairy-free, soy-free option for you. It's made from coconut milk though it has a fairly neutral flavor, but be warned that it sometimes curdles in cold drinks.
Ripple Half & Half, Plant-Based, Original ($4):
Made from pea protein, Ripple is super creamy, doesn't have the oily texture some vegan creamers do, and doesn't turn grainy or clump when added to hot or cold drinks. It's not sweet-tasting, making it one of the closest approximations to dairy half-and-half that we've found.
Califia Farms Barista Blend Almondmilk ($4):
Califia's Barista Blend is another option for those making espresso drinks. It's specifically formulated to be steamed and foamed for lattes, cappuccinos, and more.
Silk Caramel Almond Creamer ($2):
If what you're really craving is a sweet latte that's more like dessert, pick up this bottle. It's made from almond milk, and has a candy-like caramel flavor.
Wildwood Plain Soymilk Creamer ($2):
Another staple, Wildwood offers up a no-frills dairy-free creamer. It's one of the more affordable options out there, in line with the price of traditional dairy half-and-half.
Organic Valley French Vanilla Soy Creamer ($3):
If you prefer sweeter flavored creamers, this one's for you. The French vanilla helps mask any indication you might get that it's made from soy and not dairy.
