My coconut Oat Vanilla Nut Vegan Coffee Creamer has some vanilla and almond flavors from the extract, but the coconut is mild in it. It’s great in Earl Grey tea, coffee, or even chai and doesn’t break up in coffee which is important in a vegan creamer.
I certainly have a few favorite store-bought creamers I like, but I love making my own vegan coffee creamer. A wonderful thing about making your own creamer is that you can use any sweetener you want or just leave it unsweetened.
This creamer is quick and you can make it without going into the cold. This recipe will show you that having oats in the house is just more important than bread in a snowstorm*!
* In the south if the weather hints at snow people go to the store and grab all the milk, bread, and toilet paper they can from the store.

Can I use a coffee creamer in place of milk when I make a dessert?
You can, but do realize that it’s richer and you will probably need less than the recipe calls for depending on the recipe.
Can I use steel-cut oats in place of rolled oats?
If you are making this creamer or really any oat milk you can use steel-cut oats. You will need to soak steel-cut oats for 30 minutes to an hour to soften them enough to blend.
It takes a little more time, but it works just as good as rolled oats, and you can still have creamer in time for breakfast.

What is the best vegan substitute for dairy milk?
I find that when people are transitioning to being vegan it takes a little work to find their favorite non-dairy milk. When you think about milk there are different thicknesses and textures, and plant milk is just the same.
- Looking for whole milk feel – try soy or oat milk
- For a lighter mouthfeel try almond or hemp
- Rice milk is my least favorite because it’s watery
