DIY Non Dairy Flavored Coffee Creamers

 Non Dairy Coffee Creamer

I am very much a coffee drinker.  Obsessed actually. Addicted, whatever you would like to call it. I literally can not function in the morning without it. I like an afternoon coffee, but usually only because I want to make a latte or espresso.  Or Mocha Cappuccino.  Or Caramel Pumpkin iced Coffee.  Ok ....  I'm losing myself.  Come back.  Whew, I almost walked away to make a coffee.

Flavored Creamer

Alright, so with all the coffee we drink, we go through a lot of creamers. I use non-dairy creamer in my coffee. I know a lot of people prefer half and half or milk, but I hate the taste. If I buy my coffee from a cafe, that is different.  At home, I like the non-dairy creamer.  We usually buy flavored coffee and regular creamer, but let's face it anything flavored is more expensive. So I started buying regular coffee and decided to make my own flavored creamers.  It is so easy and I am quite surprised more people do not do it.

The best part about these,  they are non-dairy. People who can not have dairy can now have flavored creamers, CHEAP.

Walmart has a brand of creamer that is $1. I made Mocha, Pumpkin Spice and Vanilla Bean & Nutmeg.  All spices of which I already had in my cabinet.  I now have 3  - 16 oz. jars of flavored creamer for  $3   compared to one store bought starting at $2.19 for the small one. 

How To Make A Non Dairy Creamer

Mocha non dairy Creamer recipe

  •   Add 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder and 2 tablespoons of sugar (optional)  to about 16 oz. of nondairy, powdered coffee creamer.  Shake well to mix.  These canning jars come in handy for this.  Use your normal amount in your coffee.

Pumpkin Spice non dairy creamer recipe

  •   Same as above, except omit the cocoa and use 1 teaspoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice. I like the flavor to be a little stronger so I added a second teaspoon!

Vanilla Bean and Nutmeg non dairy creamer recipe

  • Since the vanilla bean is moist you will have to dry it out first.  Split the vanilla bean down the middle and open it up (as if butterflying).  Leave out on the counter overnight to dry. Depending on how much is in the bean pod, it may take a second day.  After it is dried, scrape the vanilla bean into a canning jar ( or container of your choice) add 1 teaspoon of nutmeg.  Shake to mix well.

Dry Dairy Free Coffee Creamers 

Simple. That is how easy it is to make these dairy free coffee creamers. Store them in containers and use each morning. I love having a handful of flavors on hand for whatever I crave that day. 

Easy Hostess Gift Idea

Also, these creamers make an amazing hostess gift idea or even a holiday gift to any coffee lover. Give a bag of their favorite coffee, and then pair with some jars of creamers with pretty labels. 


Can I Make These Non Dairy Creamers Sugar Free

Yes, you can use a sugar substitute to create a sugar free creamer. Feel free to convert whatever dry sweetener you prefer in replace of the regular sugar in the recipes. A dairy free creamer that can easily be sugar free as well. 

How To Store Dry Coffee Creamers 

As you can see I placed mine in jars with lids. Then stored at room temperature for a few months. You want to look at expiration dates on the products you use. To ensure an item isn't close to expiring soon. Then store for a few months and use whenever you get a craving. Just make sure to always keep creamer sealed. 

Is Dry Coffee Creamer Bad For You 

It is all about moderation. Like anything when you have something sweet and have calories, you want to be aware of how much you are using. So make sure to not overdo it with any add-ins to your coffee to help keep the sugar content low. 

DIY Non Dairy Flavored Coffee Creamers

Have fun with your coffee creamers and find a dairy-free variation that works for you. I love this it beats just pouring some almond milk or coconut milk into my coffee. With these dry creamers, I have a lot of flavors and that smooth and sweet texture. 

Looking for desserts to pair next to your coffee

  1. Thank you for putting these recipes out there! I love flavored creamers but the liquid ones mess with my tummy. I can't wait to try these out especially the pumpkin spice! These sound delicious!

  2. I haven't always been a coffee drinker!! About 20 years ago (I am 70) a friend talked me into going for coffee - figured I would have tea. She bought me a hazelnut mocha and the rest is history! I was hooked. But, the hard part is that the cost of a flavored coffee at the shop(s) was WAY out of my budget. So, 20 years ago, I started making my own mocha creamer: Hot chocolate mix (I use Swiss Miss in the larger containers) and hazelnut creamer (I use Coffee Mate brand as the less expensive ones just are not to my taste!). Mix to taste - I use one large container of hot chocolate mix and 1 large hazelnut creamer. I put the mixture in a large airtight container. I use 2 heaping teaspoons in a 10 oz cup of coffee - Yum.

    • Hi Kelly, Hmmmm that is a good one, I am not sure how you could go about that. I'll think on it and see what I can find or figure out.

      • Thanks! Love the pumpkin spice ‼️
        I'm a big fan of the liquid creamers and have tried a couple of the dyi ones.
        However, this is so much easier I plan on keeping some on hand all the time!!!

  3. It's really a cool and helpful piece of info. I'm glad that you simply shared this useful info
    with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thank
    you for sharing.

  4. I am getting ready to make this and when you used 16 oz, was it by weight or 2 cups? Excited to get started and try!

    • Hi Janell,

      It was by weight, we used a plain non dairy creamer from the store. I purchased 3 , 16oz. containers.

  5. I love the creamers , but I am looking for chai spice,,,love the pumpkin one,,,Is it possible u know how to make it ,, looked every where can not find for non dairy,,,

    • I would think you might be able to use the same spices that is used for chair tea? Maybe combine and run the spices thru a coffee grinder or blender to make them finer to mix with the powdered creamer

  6. Thanks for this info. I will be making some of this in the coming weeks as I like to make my own hot cocoa mix and use the flavored powder creamers to make different flavors of coco but I'm limited to what the stores carry. Now I can make flavors of my choice!!

  7. The thing is that the powdered "non dairy" creamers still have a milk derivative in them so people with milk allergies still cannot have them. 🙁

  8. I am one that has to be careful when drinking coffee because I love it, but can't handle dairy. If I have more than one cup with it, it makes me have some serious issues. And my boyfriend can always tell. If I say, "Ugh! My stomach is doing funky things", he will say to me, "Did you have any dairy?"

    Now that I see how cheap and easy making your own creamer is, I definitely need to try it.

    Thanks for sharing, Melissa.
