At Expo West, Elmhurst debuted their first dairy-free creamer, and it was a game changer. While most other brands were focused solely on oats, Elmhurst Hemp Creamer launched as the first hemp creamer on the market. It’s crafted with just four ingredients, including real hemp cream that’s made from hemp seeds grown on their own fields in Western New York.

Elmhurst Hemp Creamer Promises Dairy-Free Purity to Perk You Up
Elmhurst Hemp Creamer contains no added sugars, sweeteners, gums, oils, or carrageenan. But it does contain omega-3 ALA fatty acid that is found naturally in the hemp seeds.
Like all Elmhurst products, this creamer is crafted through their trademarked HydroRelease method. It uses just water to separate the components of the seeds before reassembling them as a creamy, beverage-ready emulsion. This process reportedly maintains the full nutrition of the hemp seeds without added gums or emulsifiers.
Elmhurst is starting with a baseline plain variety, without added sweetener or flavors. If it’s well-received, flavors might follow. We’ll update if new varieties land. And don’t forget to leave your own rating and review below if you’ve tried it!

Makes your coffee taste like hemp hearts. Gross.
My grocery store in Canada that carries it charges $7.99, the price alone is too much for what it is. And unless you want your coffee tasting like hemp hearts meh, you’re better off getting a barista soy blend or barista oat for your coffee. I’m sure you can play with it, depending on your brew and perhaps adding a bit of sweetness to it, but I just want my coffee tasting like coffee, not hemp, not coconut, not sugar. Just coffee, with some plant-based cream to tame down the acidity is that too much to ask?
Hip Hooray for Hemp!
Super creamy and smooth, this stuff blends like a dream in coffee. It does have a hint of that distinctively grassy, green sort of flavor that comes with hemp, but it’s subtle, especially when paired with a strong brew. Completely unsweetened, it would be ideal for savory cooking applications as well.
