Let’s talk vegan coffee creamer.

There’s something terrific about a dollop of cream in coffee or tea. I love the way it swirls in the mug; it’s pretty to watch.

Do you like creamer?

Good news. A surprising amount of vegan options are available.

Today, choices made from soy, coconut, almond, and flax are in most grocery stores. Plus, dairy-free coffee creamer is easy to make at home.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Did You Know?

People have been talking about vegan coffee creamer since the start. Donald Watson, the founder of veganism, talked about it in 1944, in the first issue of The Vegan News.

“The elimination of milk undoubtedly presents the greatest difficulty,” said Watson. “Nut milk is a good substitute, but it does not go well in tea.”

Luckily that’s a thing of the past.

It’s time to talk about the vegan coffee creamer basics.

Most likely, you know that dairy coffee creamer is made using the milk from animals like cows, sheep, or goats. Obviously, creamer made from these types of milk isn’t vegan.

So, what kind of coffee creamer is vegan? Non-dairy creamers made with almond, coconut, soy, or another plant-based milk.

Here’s a list of the vegan coffee creamer brands.

Reading Food Labels:

Is non-dairy coffee creamer vegan?

Non-dairy coffee creamer made from plant milk like soy, coconut, flax, or almond milk is fine for vegans.

First, check for common animal ingredients in creamers such as lactose, whey, or casein. Next, look for words like “non-dairy” or “dairy-free.” Finally, look for brands that use the term ‘vegan’ on the label.

Some brands have one. Others don’t.
