New Delicious Dairy-Free Creamer + Quick Vegan Hot Chocolate and Chai Tea Recipes

Posted on by Alisa Fleming in News, Nutrition Headlines with 4 Comments

Alisa Fleming ~ For years I ignored the fuss around coffee creamer. As someone who has never treasured the bitter bean, I assumed this type of product simply wasn’t for me. Oh how wrong I was. A new soy-free, dairy-free creamer has changed my tune, and I’ve been in non-stop experiment mode since that first sip.

So Delicious Barista-Style Dairy-Free Creamer

No, I don’t drink dairy-free creamer straight-up in a martini glass, but really, you could if you wanted to! The new Barista-Style Coconut Milk Dairy Free Creamer from So Delicious is that smooth. It’s deliciously creamy, yet perfectly fluid, and not so indulgent that you couldn’t enjoy a splash (or three, or four) every day. As an added bonus, it is soy-free, vegan, and allergy-friendly!

But first, a little more on these creamers …

The French Vanilla Barista-Style Creamer is almost shockingly sweet when tasted straight, but Tony loved it in his morning coffee, proclaiming it to be the perfect flavor – no sweetener required (and that man likes his sugar)! I also fell in love with the amazing flavor it can add to hot beverages, and am excited to test it out in dessert recipes as a substitute for light cream or half and half.

The Original Barista-Style Creamer has a much more subdued flavor; I would say the sweet flavor and luxurious texture are pretty much on par, and quite complimentary. The delicate flavor makes it even more versatile – perfect for recipes or a lower sugar beverage …

Mexican Dairy-Free Hot Chocolate

One of my first experiments was a low sugar hot chocolate. The barista-style dairy-free creamer makes for a very quick and easy recipe, and a hot chocolate that is neither too watery nor too rich. I opted to use the Original-flavored dairy-free creamer, and sweetened with stevia to keep the sugars low. But you can use the vanilla dairy-free creamer or simply sweeten to taste.

Whisk all ingredients together in a mug, and enjoy. If your dairy-free creamer was chilled, heat the beverage gently in a saucepan or for 30 seconds in the microwave.

Speedy Dairy-Free Chai Tea

Herbal chai tea is my favorite daily luxury, but when I added the vanilla dairy-free creamer, it was escalated to a new coffee shop level. Recipes really don’t get any easier than this one, but it was still too good not to share!

Steep the tea bags in the hot water for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the dairy-free creamer and enjoy your “better than Starbucks” soy-free chai tea!

    Great to know about this new product, Alisa! I’m not much of a hot beverage person, but I am constantly getting asked by people for quick DF creamer recipes or brands to recommend. Looks like this one’s a winner. :)
