Milk Allergy Moms unite!
It’s time to talk dairy-free coffee creamers.
I’m calling together this important meeting,
because I know one of the first things we milk allergy moms think about…
is our little one pulling our dairy-laden coffee down onto themselves.
Or worst yet, taking a sip of mommy’s coffee and creamer.
SO many of us move to dairy-free coffee creamer even when we aren’t dairy-free ourselves.
It’s been such a popular question at Milk Allergy Mom over the years…
What dairy-free coffee creamer is the best?
Well actually, thirteen years ago the question was,
Does dairy-free coffee creamer exist. HA!
But having been at this long enough,
I’m proud to say, YES!
Yes it does!
There are now PLENTY of dairy-free coffee creamers to choose from.
And we aren’t even scratching the surface in this blog post.
But hey, we will have you off to a good start.
And you will learn MY very favorite, so that’s important, right?
HA, HA, HA!
No doubt about it, mommy needs her coffee.
And we won’t sacrifice our cream.
So let’s get to it, and see some of the options that may be safer around our kiddos with milk allergy.
SILK SOY CREAMER
First up, is the pioneer of dairy-free creamer.
I do believe this is the first option I ever found a decade ago.
And I’ve always loved it as the perfect ingredient for our homemade dairy-free ice cream.
That’s because it’s unsweetened, and I can control the sugar content in our ice cream.
I find this at Hy-Vee.
But for mommy’s coffee, we like sweet.
So let’s keep going.
SO DELICIOUS COCONUT CREAMER
Ok, so some of you may LIKE unsweet coffee.
And for you coconut lovers,
you may like this!
Just 5 simple ingredients, not bad!
Again, another great option for homemade ice cream.
But I digress.
RIPPLE PEA CREAMER
I know, pea creamer sounds interesting…
if not hilarious.
But trust me, this brand is legit.
This is another unsweetened option.
And they make my kids’ favorite chocolate milk.
My husband says this is the closest thing to real dairy.
And dang, it’s pretty healthy.
This may be your top pick!
I find it at Hy-Vee or the health store.
So Delicious French Vanilla Coconut Creamer
Ok, now we are getting into the good stuff.
Come to mama.
Before you judge me, I don’t put added sugar in my coffee.
But I do let some sweet creamer do it’s magic.
Is that so wrong?
I’m still doing so much better than drive-thru lattes with a little splash of sweet creamer.
So let’s go with that.
This is a great option, found at I think Target.
Just 7 simple ingredients, and a larger container.
Who’s in for French Vanilla?
COFFEEMATE COCONUT SWEET CREME
Alright, judge me now.
This one is my favorite.
Not organic, not 7 ingredients, not healthy.
But dang it’s so good.
And when I use this creamer,
I drink my whole cup of coffee. HA!
I love to bring this along for parties and such…
it’s inexpensive enough to share and keeps the milk allergy kiddos out of harm’s way.
I grab this at my County Market.
So there you have it, folks.
Now you know I like sweet coffee.
Not too sweet, but not black enough to give me heartburn.
Know what I mean?
Oooooo, want some dairy-free coffee creamers for your purse?
Check out these coffee creamer singles!
I also use dairy-free coffee creamers to make delicious dairy-free homemade lattes. YUMMY!
PS: I listed no almond creamer here because I can’t do almond. But they exist!
See this post from my friend Alisa at Go Dairy Free for more options.
Cheers to you, milk allergy mom.
Hope this post helps you doctor up your beloved coffee,
in a way you’ll still love it for that caffeine burst. xo
