Since the turn of the decade (last week!), Danone has been quietly releasing several new dairy-free products under their Silk brand. First was the Silk Almondmilk Yogurt Mix-Ins, then came the Silk Dairy-Free Heavy Whipping Cream, and now Silk Dairy Free Half & Half Alternative is hitting the creamer section.

Milk seems to separate when in coffee, leaving white flecks floating in the mug.
I am trying out a dairy free diet and this has made the switch so much easier. If there wasn’t a hint of coconut taste I would be skeptical that it’s even dairy free! I’ve tried other dairy free creamers and found them all disappointing. I was hoping this one would be an improvement and it exceeded my expectations! In Canada it comes in a brown carton.
Looking for half & half oat coconut
Is this the same Silk creamer oat coconut that was sold in a brown carton, love it and cant seem to find it now. Have you changed the carton colors?
Response from Go Dairy Free
I don’t recall it being brown ever, but this is the oat coconut half and half they offer. They haven’t had an oat coconut creamer, just the half & half. Silk almond creamer was in a brown bottle and it is now white -> https://www.godairyfree.org/product-reviews/silk-almond-creamer
Best non-dairy creamer!
This is the best non-dairy creamer I have tried. I can’t tell the difference from regular diary creamers. I just wish this was available in a smaller size.
Easy Peasy to switch
I have tried every single substitute for cow half and half. Seriously. This is really YUM. Will be testing it on certain recipes soon ~ but have no fears
I almost gave up coffee before finding this half n half!
Going Dairy free was hard enough so this made it much more manageable.
Best tasting silk product yet!
Finally a great tasting creamer that I can use for cooking as well. I love the fact that I’m not harming cows when I drink my coffee or making soups. I thank silk for this product. Love, love, love, love this.
A..super..mazing…It has the richness of cream the thickness of half and half and no wierd flavors…I can attest to them being very careful of cross contamination beacuase my daughter has a very sensitive allergy to dairy (she does not have anaphalaxic reaction….she gets hives and then begins to swell everywhere ears hand feet etc it only takes minimal traces to have an immediate reaction. One time her dad kissed her on the cheek after having eaten crumbly cheese and she whiped her hand across her cheek towards her mouth and the reaccion began….ok so she has been drinking this in tea and I have made her veggie pasta with it and everytime has been flawless! It taste wonderful for creamer and cream sauces once heated to make an Alfredo type sauce it is wonderful coconut flavor is not present…try it yourself…remember dairy is scary(if you don’t know why do some research) I do not have to have dairy alternatives but I do by choice (I have tried many many alternatives) this by far exceeds the imitation game. Great job Silk!
Taste great, but it curdles...
I tried this for a healthier choice not because I need to so I have the luxury of being picky and well it taste amazing, visually it is unappealing
Tastes like real cream!!
I have tried so many non-dairy creamers and nothing compares to this! I takes like regular half-and-half. So happy to have found this!
