A Guide to Vegan Coffee Creamer

by KD Angle-Traegner on March 1, 2017

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

Living without dairy doesn’t mean giving up rich, luscious creamer for your favorite coffee drink. Non-dairy and vegan coffee creamer have become widely available these days. You’ll find them in familiar pint-size containers in the refrigerator section of the grocery store. Make sure to read labels. Look for lactose, whey, or casein, which are common ingredients in non-dairy coffee creamers. Or, simply look for brands that use ‘vegan’ on the label.
