Vegan Coffee Creamer
When coffee-lovers go vegan, one of the biggest adjustments they have to make is finding a new way to flavor their coffee.
If you’ve been drinking black coffee for far too long and are searching for a vegan coffee creamer alternative, check out the list below to find 14 plant-based coffee creamer options and where to find them!
Plant-based food companies have all but completely overtaken the milk industry. With so many dairy milk alternatives, more people are drinking plant-based milk than ever, including non-vegans. Almond milk just rocks!
However, this isn’t the same story for plant-based coffee creamer.
Plant-milk is easier to make because creaminess doesn’t really matter. Making plant milk creamy can be challenging, and often other thickeners have to be added.
Nonetheless, many companies have given a shot at making vegan creamer, so there is no shortage of options to choose from! You just might have to look at different stores or order online to find your favorite.
There are two different types of vegan coffee creamer: liquid and powdered.
Vegan Liquid Coffee Creamer
Vegan liquid coffee creamer has a shelf life that is generally the same as almond milk. Unopened, it will last a while (usually a few months), but once it is opened, you have a week and maybe a few days to use it before it goes bad.
Most liquid vegan coffee creamer brands have to be refrigerated both before and after opening, but a few brands are shelf-stable until you open them.
If you can finish a bottle of creamer in about a week, liquid coffee creamer is probably the better choice for you, as it will give you a fresher taste and blend into your coffee easily.
Vegan Powdered Coffee Creamer
Vegan powdered coffee creamer, on the other hand, will last a lot longer—opened or unopened.
So if you’re slow at going through your coffee creamer (like me) and end up dumping a lot down the sink, powdered creamer might be the right choice for you.
However, some of the most common complaints about powdered creamer are that they don’t taste as fresh as liquid coffee creamer and they tend to clump up instead of dissolving.
Are Non-Dairy Creamers Always Vegan?
Vegan creamers are always non-dairy, but non-dairy creamers are NOT always vegan! Just because a creamer doesn’t contain dairy doesn’t mean that it doesn’t contain other non-vegan ingredients.
When a creamer brand says “dairy-free,” it can be vegan, and you should look into it, but it doesn’t guarantee that it is vegan.
Watch out for creamers that are labeled “lactose-free.” These are almost always not vegan, because it usually means that it was made from dairy milk and the lactose (the sugar in dairy milk) was removed.

Natural Bliss by Coffee Mate
Here is where we run into some trouble. While many plant-based creamers are labeled vegan (because that’s who they’re marketing to, right?), the Natural Bliss Plant-Based Coffee Creamers are not labeled vegan nor certified vegan.
But, this doesn’t mean that it’s off the list — we just have to do a bit more investigating to find out if these products are suitable for a vegan diet.
Of course, we’re not talking about the Natural Bliss dairy creamers, but the non-dairy creamers listed on their website.
Their non-dairy Natural Bliss creamers are definitely plant-based but are not guaranteed vegan because they contain cane sugar, which is not always vegan. The natural flavor is not a concern, as they state on their FAQs that they are plant-derived.
It’s up to you if this creamer fits your lifestyle, but I wanted to include this brand on this list because it is definitely plant-based.
Where to Buy: You can buy Natural Bliss creamers any retailer that also sells Coffee-Mate creamers, such as Walmart, Publix, Kroger, Winn Dixie, Whole Foods, and more.
Natural Bliss Plant-Based Coffee Creamer Options:
- Original Oat Milk Creamer
- Original Cashew Milk Creamer
