A Guide to Vegan Coffee Creamer

There’s something lovely about a dollop of cream in coffee or tea. I love to watch the pretty way it swirls in the cup. People who enjoy cream in their drinks will have no problems finding a vegan version these days, but it hasn’t always been this way.

Donald Watson, in the first issue of The Vegan News, talked about the difficulty in finding a replacement for dairy saying: “The elimination of milk undoundtedly presents the greatest difficulty. Nut milk is a good substitute, but it does not go well in tea.”

Luckily for us, that’s a thing of the past. These days you’ll find plenty of deliciously creamy soy, coconut, almond-based creamers to choose from.

Vegan Coffee Creamer Brands

Non-Dairy Creamer is widely available in a variety of rich, flavored creamers you can find in the dairy case. Look for them in pint-sized containers. Be sure to check the label. Some creamer brands will contain milk derivatives or other animal ingredients.  Avoid ingredients such as milk solids or casein and look for brands that specifically label their non-dairy milk as vegan.
