Silk Almond Creamer is Nuts for Dairy-Free Coffee and Recipes

0

In the past few years, several dairy-free creamers have faded away, but Silk Almond Creamer seems to have a loyal following. In fact, I’ve noticed that stores sometimes have trouble keeping it in stock! It’s a popular vegan and soy-free creamer that comes in three sweet flavors year round: Vanilla, Caramel, and Sweet & Creamy.

It does look like the Hazelnut flavor of Silk Almond Creamer has been discontinued in the U.S., but not in Canada. And around the holidays, you might spot a seasonal flavor, like Pumpkin Spice.

Silk Almond Creamer is Nuts for Dairy-Free Coffee and Recipes

I’m not a coffee drinker myself, but have taste-tested the Vanilla and Caramel straight up, and in recipes. Both are quite sweet and flavorful, with a creamier-than-almond milk finish. And they performed quite well in place of milk beverage or half and half in recipes. I used the Caramel to make this Bananas Foster Breakfast Bread Recipe, and the Vanilla to make a quick Vanilla Cream Spread to go with the bread.

I’ve included the pertinent details about Silk Almond Creamer in the information that follows. If you’ve tried any of the flavors, in coffee, tea, or recipes, leave your own rating and review below. It helps others make an informed purchasing decision.

Good creamer

Was buying and enjoying this creamer until we realized what Hellman gum is. It’s a derivative of cheese. Now this may be a push from the government however when vegans want dairy free, changing the verbiage so vegans don’t recognize it isn’t ok. The price also shot up. We are paying over $4.00 a bottle. We are not buying this product anymore. Sorry folks, we know the government is a pain in the arse but we don’t want cow puss in our food or coffee.

Response from Go Dairy Free

Although gellan gum can be derived from lactose fermentation, this is quite rare. For dairy-free and vegan products, it is fermented on other types of sugars. This is still a dairy-free product.

I have tried quite a few different dairy free creamers and almond silk is by far my favourite! Options are low here in Northern Ontario so I am glad to have found it!

I really like it because it’s creamy. Much creamier than using plain almond milk. For a long time I used 100% coconut cream and either coconut sugar or a little splash of SF Torani for a treat. This product does have sugar, pea protein, and gellan gum in it for those that are concerned. I have only found vanilla and sweet & creamy locally. I have only tried their vanilla. Wish I could find Hazelnut nearby!

Love this. I loved all the flavored dairy coffee creamers so I had a lot of trouble having a good cup of coffee when I realized I needed to stay away from dairy for health reasons. I tried regular almond milk but it made my coffee to watery. I tried Trader Joe’s “non-dairy” But found out it had milk derivatives. This is my go to creamer!
