Course: Coffee Creamer {dairy-free}
Author: Simply Happenstance - Adapted from Against all Grain


  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk {original or vanilla flavored}
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla or 1 vanilla bean {scraped and seeded}


  • Combine the first four ingredients {almond milk, coconut milk, maple syrup and honey} into a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a low boil, then remove from heat.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract. {If using a whole vanilla bean, slice the long side, and scrape out the seeds. Place the seeds and bean in the milk, then cover and let steep for 30 minutes.}
  • Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth.
  • Stir desired amount into a warm cup of coffee. For iced coffee, simply stir creamer into warm cup of coffee so that it combines well, then pour over a glass full of ice. Enjoy!


For a more chai-like creamer, stir in a dash of ginger, cinnamon, clove and/or cardamom!
Store the dairy-free creamer in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1 week.
