Best healthy coffee creamers
With 4 MCTs, this is a plant-based fuel for your brain, coffee, and body. The original flavor contains organic coconut sugar but it’s made with high-quality ingredients.
Laird is available in different flavors: original, turmeric, cacao, unsweetened, and chocolate mint. Choose to your heart’s desire and store it in the fridge once opened. Use an immersion blender to dissolve it completely.
A combo of almond milk and coconut cream, this is a vegan option that combines nutty and creamy in one pack. No soy, no dairy, with only 15 calories per serving, this unsweetened creamer comes in four different flavors: original, unsweetened, vanilla flavor, and hazelnut.
It’s a great alternative to dairy half and half; be sure to shake well before using. Kosher and gluten-free!
This one’s got you all covered: keto diet, vegan, paleo, whole-30, and more. It’s non-GMO, GF, carrageenan-free and it can be used with your favorite sweetener or without!
Nutpods Creamer comes with a pack of three and it’s rich, creamy, and smooth. Similar to the previous one, it combines almond milk with coconut cream, available in three flavors.
Great for the keto, vegan, GF diets, and all those who want to keep the daily sugar intake under control. It’s a sugar-free creamer that’s versatile (stick it in your tea or smoothie if you wish) and non-GMO. It has a lovely consistency and makes a nice foam. It’s creamy and it can easily become your go-to dairy substitute!
It’s organic and keto-friendly. It’s made with coconut oil and grass-fed ghee, but this one may not be for everyone. Yes, it’s healthy, it’s free of GMO ingredients, and all that nasty stuff. But the flavor depends on your coffee style and preferences.
You can choose between 4 flavors (original, cinnamon, vanilla, and naked), and it’ll boost your coffee with healthy fats. Keep in mind that it’s not eligible for returns, no matter how much you dislike it.
Healthy homemade coffee creamer: top recipes
If you want to have complete control over what goes into your coffee creamer, you can easily make one yourself at home! I’ve gathered a list of the tastiest homemade coffee creamer recipes; these are healthier alternatives to the classic creamers you can pick up at the grocery store!
1. Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer (dairy-free)
A healthy alternative to store-bought products, this naturally sweetened creamer is very easy to make, paleo-friendly, vegan, and gluten-free. You’ll need 6 ingredients to whip this one up and it’ll keep impressing you and your friends all summer and winter long. It’s great to add to cold brew coffee as well, so don’t hesitate if you love mint!
Does your coffee need a makeover? Great, you need to make this snickers creamer. It’s paleo and vegan; coconut milk makes it super creamy and it gets its sweet notes from the dates, so no artificial sweetener or other ingredients involved! Double it or triple it, depending on your desperation.
Erin who made this recipe is a little obsessed with coffee, just like you and me. So it’s safe to say that she knows what she’s doing with her coffee creamer recipe! You have to give it a go. Because it’s creamy and because it can be completely unsweetened if you want it to, and because you can double the recipe easily to pamper yourself this summer!
4. Salted Caramel Coffee creamer (dairy-free)
Forget about the commercial creamers completely. Give this healthy caramel coffee creamer a try. It’s cheaper than Starbucks and ridiculously easy to make! All you need to do is make the caramel sauce and add salt to it. For more flavor, add additional ingredients to elevate the creamer!
5. Banana Bread Coffee creamer (dairy-free)
But why bananas? Well, because you surely have a black banana lying in your fridge. And no one wants to eat it because it’s just soo overripe. Well, if you have overripe bananas lying around and have no clue how to use them, this may be the solution: banana bread creamer! You’ll need coconut milk as well, and a few other things. But bananas are the star here! Don’t forget about a dash of cinnamon if you’re feeling particularly frisky!
