This is the best dairy free creamer I have found. It’s thicker and creamier than others. Tastes almost as good as real half and half.


I can finally have my coffee again!

Had to quit dairy recently and missed my coffee. Just found this and it’s wonderful. Really appreciate the no sugar and NO carrageenan!
Now I want to find the heavy cream.

I am so happy that I tried this! I was fearful that it might taste fake or sweet but it tastes as close to dairy as can be without coming from a cow. It has the body of coconut but the oat milk mellows and prevents the flavor from screaming ‘coconut’.
Thank you so much!

So I’m new to veganism and was worried about struggling to find a coffee creamer that would come close to the heavy whipping cream I previously used. I have tried various things in the past with “meh” to “blegh” results. This stuff is SO GOOD! Very creamy and I can’t taste the coconut aspect (I don’t really care for coconut anything.) Will be buying more! Thanks for a great product!


Love how creamy it is, but...

I thought I’d found the dairy-free, no added sugar great tasting, creamer! Well, I (almost) did.
If they can remove the coconut oil, I’ll come back to it.
We’re almost there! 🙁

I originally was looking for lactose free half and half. None of my local grocery stores had it. I found this in my local Walmart. I love Alfredo sauce but I’m lactose intolerant. I’m also gluten sensitive. There’re pastas for that . This is an excellent substitute for making Alfredo sauce. It has the slightly sweet taste of cream. The consistency is just like half and half. It’s wonderful in coffee too! The best part is what it doesn’t have. It was a bit pricey but my gut thanks me.
