The world of food is changing. Gone is our reliance on heavily processed or questionable conveniences. Now we can stock our favorite indulgences, like dairy-free creamer, without a drop of guilt. I didn’t used to stock creamer since I’m not a coffee drinker and Tony usually takes his black. But after discovering its many uses, I now keep a few packages on hand.
Finding a Good Dairy-Free Creamer
For our needs, I prefer the following in a dairy free creamer:
- Unsweetened– Varieties without sugar are far more versatile and I’m a bit of a control freak when it comes to what sweeteners I use and how much.
- Minimal Ingredients– Some of those creamers have scary ingredient lists! I expect a natural thickener or emulsifier, but I’m a happy camper if they don’t have hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, carrageenan and titanium dioxide.
- Shelf-Stable– Of course you have to chill it once opened, but small packages that I can store until I need them are fantastic.
- Richness– some brands are a bit too watery. I like it to have a nice “half and half” consistency so that it can add body to various recipes.
Nutpods fits the bill for my entire “wish list”. It’s made from half coconut and half almonds, contains minimal ingredients and is non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, gluten-free, kosher pareve, and Whole 30 approved! I also love the little aseptic packages. They’re shelf-stable, have a resealable spout, and I’m able to use them up without any waste!
How to Use Dairy-Free Creamer
Okay, now that we have a good dairy-free creamer in hand, lets use it!
