You made your requests and I’m here to deliver! Months ago, I gave out recipes for homemade coffee creamer, receiving a huge response. One common request in the emails and comments asked for dairy-free and sugar-free options.
Many sugar-free, dairy-free coffee creamers on the market are both expensive and loaded with preservatives and massively processed ingredients. Making coffee creamer at home will save you some change in your pocketbook and save you from exposing your body to harmful synthetic ingredients.
After a lot of thought, I chose dates as the sweetener. One cup of dates blended with one cup of hot water produces a sweet liquid paste that can be used in place of maple syrup, agave, honey, sucanat, etc. It’s truly delicious in these creamer recipes, but if you prefer using stevia or xylitol, those make excellent substitutes.
These recipes are complete, but they’re also meant as a guide. If you like your creamer a little sweeter – add more sweetener. If you like your creamer with more spice or vanilla – add a little more. The recipes are very forgiving. Taste as you go and enjoy!
