cream poured into a cup of coffee

Enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning is one of life’s simple pleasures. Whether you take it black, with a touch of cream, or a bit of sweetener, everyone has their preference.

While recreating your local barista’s latte at home can taste delicious, it may not always be the healthiest or wallet-friendly option. Traditional coffee creamers contain many added ingredients and sugar proven to start your day on the wrong foot. The good news is you can have your creamer and drink it too. Get ready to check those ingredients, sugar content, and calories to ensure that the coffee creamer you decide to pour into your coffee enhances your drink and health.

We tried a bunch of healthy coffee creamers that will elevate the taste of your morning brew without the added junk. Keep reading for 15 healthy coffee creamers to add to your grocery list and your next cup of joe.

Elmhurst French Vanilla Oat Creamer

Elmhurst French Vanilla Oat Creamer

First on our healthy creamer roundup comes Elmhurst Oat Milk French Vanilla Creamer. Your local barista makes crafting delicious lattes look easy. With this french vanilla creamer, you can do the same from the comfort of your kitchen. Elmhurst offers a variety of flavored creamer options, including caramel macchiato, chai spice, and pistachio. We dug deeper to check out the nutrition labels and ingredients, and we found the French Vanilla Creamer to be the best bet in terms of your health. We want to add the disclaimer that their other milk offerings are not unhealthy, but this one rises slightly above the rest.

The Elmhurst Oat Milk Creamer contains no added oils or gums, distinguishing it from other dairy-free creamers. According to the label, each serving yields around 15 calories, 2 grams of carbohydrates, and 1 gram of sugar. This creamer tastes so good you might mistake it for a dairy creamer.

Almond Breeze Vanilla Almondmilk Creamer

Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Vanilla Almondmilk Creamer

Blue Diamond’s Almond Breeze, one of the more popular dairy-free milk brands, also provides delicious and creamy Vanilla Almondmilk Creamer. This dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan creamer gives your coffee a professional barista touch.

Per serving, this Vanilla Almondmilk Creamer contains 25 calories, 4 grams of carbohydrates, and 4 grams of sugar (via Blue Diamond). While it does not contain artificial flavors or saturated fats, we noticed a few gums and natural flavors on the ingredient list. Likely, you do not use a ton of creamer in every cup, so these added ingredients would not be detrimental to your overall wellness.

Compared to other brands, Blue Diamond’s Almond Breeze is sold in the greatest variety of grocery stores, so there is no excuse why you can’t add a healthier creamer into your morning routine. And if you don’t want the Vanilla Flavor, try their sweet and creamy Caramel Almondmilk or Sweet Crème Almondmilk flavors.

When we mentioned dessert earlier, we weren’t messing around. Natonics also serves up a Snickerdoodle-flavored creamer. While the brand promotes using this powder in coffee, tea, and smoothies, we think adding it to healthy baked goods could be a delicious use of the creamer.
