The Edgy Veg

Vegan Creamer recipe

Some things are easier to substitute than others. For example, it was relatively simple for me to substitute raw vegan sugar for the regular white stuff, and vegan mayo for the death goo that is Hellman’s. But there is something about almond milk in coffee that I just wasn’t happy with. Almond milk just isn’t good in coffee, it makes it some weird colour, and the soy milk available at the local coffee is most likely GMO. So where does that leave us?  Nondairy creamers? Not necessarily, grocery store brands are still full of weird products. Read your labels, some aren’t even totally vegan.

Start with a high-quality coffee. If you start with a better coffee, you will most likely need less cream, as high quality coffee or espresso is not as bitter or acidic.

    I can’t have nuts, so I substituted sunflower seeds and left out the dates and it came out terrific. I never would have thought to put shredded coconut in my no-milk. Thank you!

  • Very good! Thank you!

  • lori Wik says:

    april 1st, the whole family is going vegan. I am super excited, but the milk in my coffee was the only thing that I am worried about (i am not a fan of soymilk coffee or almond milk). will give this a try! Thanks!

  • Amanda says:

    What’s your favorite kind of coffee that you can make in a regular coffee maker?

  • Michaël says:

    Does it separate/curl once in the coffee?

  • Probably more than you want to know, but I have been eating the pulp as breakfast cereal to go with my morning coffee. Great way to start the day!

  • Shella says:

    Are the Dates just for a little sweeter or do they help thicken the creamer?
    Can I leave them out?
    I like my creamer to be thick, can I adjust the thickness by using less water?

    • EdgyVeg says:

      They are for sweetening, you can absolutely adjust thickness by adding less water 🙂

  • Lisa Summers` says:

    This is very good, I am quite impressed….i use lots and even my boyfriend said he will drink it and we are huge coffee people…thanks so much

  • Woah nelly

  • Just made this tonight. Can you freeze some of the milk? Also, what did you do with the leftover pulp?

    • Hi Erica!! I have never tried freezing it. I like to save the leftover pulp for baking cookies or making granola bars!

  • Olivia says:

    So delicious!!! Finally found a keeper, but it separates when in the fridge, is that normal?

    • That is totally normal!!!! All natural milks will do that. Simply shake it up before using.

      • Olivia says:

        It also separates when I put it in my coffee, it sort of separates and sinks to the bottom, I have to keep stirring it with my finger, lol, is that normal as well.

  • Alessia says:

    Awesome recipe. Curious how thick the consistency is? I miss the thick texture that dairy cream used to give to my coffee and I’ve been trying to duplicate it (unsuccessfully) with almond cream.

  • Hi, can we use substitute the cashews? I’m allergic to cachews and almonds. I heard that pumpkin seeds would work well. What do you think?

  • Can’t wait to try it! I was wondering what the name of the espresso machine you use in the video was? I’ve never seen anything like it and would love to buy one. Thanks!

  • What’s the coffee maker with steam called and where can one purchase it? Thanks. This looks like a terrific vegan creamer!

  • Looks delicious! How long does this keep?
