So Delicious Coconut Milk Creamer

Posted on by Alisa Fleming in Alternatives - Other Dairy with 6 Comments

OK, time for some coffee talk…

Heather, how about some coffee with your cream?


I’ve been drinking hot water with lemon most mornings, but when my box of So Delicious Coconut Milk Creamers arrived, I busted out the decaf.


I tried the original flavor first, and although it does contains cane juice, it was not sweet at all. However, after adding some liquid stevia drops, it was perfect. Rich, creamy, and slightly sweet.  The French vanilla creamer was great all on its own, but the hazelnut…no thanks.  It was way too sweet and tasted fake, even though it does not contain any artificial ingredients.  The contents of that mug ended up in the sink.  However, it did make for some pretty tasty Nutella ice-cream. 

Still loving the ice-cream maker!


2 cups So Delicious hazlenut creamer + 2 TBSP cocoa powder. That’s it.  Lovely.

I’ve heard the creamers are available at Whole Foods, and I would highly recommend the original all well as the French vanilla flavors as far as taste goes.  The hazelnut? Yeah, not so much.  My only problem with the creamers (besides the fact that the hazelnut tasted like I was doing straight shots of amaretto) is that they all contain sugar, including the original flavor.  Even though organic coconut milk is listed as the first ingredient in the French vanilla followed by organic evaporated cane juice, 1 TBSP contains 20 calories, 0 fat, and 4 grams of sugar.  That’s a lot of sugar folks, especially for the amount of creamer I use.  I think I’ll stick with the original, 20 calories and only 1 gram of sugar per serving.  Much better.

This is a third party review submitted by the fabulous Heather of Heather Eats Almond Butter. For more information about these creamers, visit the Turtle Mountain (aka So Delicious) website.

    Can you use these creamers as a substitute for heavy cream in recipes?

      I would consider it more of a light cream substitute, but it would depend on the recipe in terms of how it would work out. Some heavy cream recipes work just fine with a light cream.

    I have trriedd these and thought they were quite good- then too, I like y coffee sweet and although they arent the ‘rrichest’ creamers tey had a nice taste and my coffee was great. I agree, it would be a very light creamer if you tried cooking with it.

    I have tried the hazelnut creamer. It is sweet but that is the way that I like my coffee. However, I liked it better when I added it to a cup of hot chocolate. Very yummy.

    I discovered these creamers when I was nursing my milk protein allergic son. He is now 2 and I stopped nursing nearly a year ago, and I have never gone back to half & half. I love the flavor of the original but the french vanilla is too sweet for my taste. I stock up on the bigger shelf stable “barista” boxes when I can find them. I don’t think I will ever go back to regular cream.
