Allyson Kramer shares my Vanilla Hazelnut Creamer and a Gingerbread Latte

Vanilla Hazelnut Creamer from Vegan Slow Cooking for Two or Just You

One of the things I love about being a vegan author is how great the vegan author community is. Allyson and I haven’t met in person yet, but I already know how awesome she is. She does great gluten-free recipes that everyone enjoys. Make sure to look at some of her beautiful photos and tasty recipes after you get my recipe for Vanilla Hazelnut Creamer.

One you’ve made your first batch come on back to this post. The Gingerbread Latte recipe below would be a great home for the creamer. Plus it tastes even better when you made it yourself!

Slow Cooker Gingerbread Latte

*This recipe requires a small 1 – 1.5 quart slow cooker.* (You can double or triple the recipe and use a larger one if you like.)

Makes 2 servings (unless you drink a venti and then it’s just one serving)
soy-free, gluten-free

  • 1/4 cup (63ml) cold brewed coffee concentrate or 1 cup (250ml) regular brewed coffee
  • 1/4 cup (63ml) vegan creamer
  • 2 cup (500ml) nondairy milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch ground clove
  • pinch ground allspice
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon molasses (optional)
  • Sweetener to taste: brown sugar, stevia, agave nectar, or maple syrup, etc.
    (I used 1/2 packet Nu-Stevia)

Put everything but sweetener in the slow cooker. Add molasses. Whisk until ingredients are well combined. Taste and add your choice of sweetener until it’s the way you like your latte.

Cook for 3 hours on low or 1 1⁄2 to 2 hours on high. You are just heating it, so you could also do this on the stove top if you are in a hurry.

I like to put drinks on in a slow cooker before a dinner party and then it’s piping hot and ready to serve with dessert.

  1. Allyson does seem great! I have one of her cookbooks and I love it! So much vegan love everywhere! :-)

  2. Looks so delicious!

  3. Hi! I just found your website and I love it! I googled slow cooker recipes and found your blog :) I also saw you have cookbooks on amazon and will be ordering them as well :) I’m new to crockpots because I always had a fear that I would come home to a house on fire because of my crockpot ( i know it’s weird ;)
    I had a quick question about putting Chia Seeds in the oatmeal overnight. I’m not sure if you know anything about them, but basically they add fiber and turn your oatmeal into more of a “gel-like” texture. Do you think I should add more liquid or stick to your recipes?
    Thanks :)

  4. What is vegan creamer?

    • Kathy Hester says:

      A rich nondairy beverage that you use in coffee or tea. Really, most mainstream commercial nondairy creamers still have dairy in them making them unusable for people with dairy allergies and vegan who do not consume dairy products at all. Silk, So Delicious and other real dairy-less creamers do exist though just make sure to read your labels.
