In recent years, there seems to have been a big increase in plant-based creamer choices on store shelves. But when we looked closer, it turns out that dairy-free doesn't always mean animal ingredient free.
So, if you want to avoid unknowingly adding animal ingredients to your coffee, then stick with the following vegan coffee creamers that we have carefully analyzed and tested.

Which Vegan Coffee Creamer Should You Order?
In our opinion, you should order the Califia Farms vegan creamer option.
While we do use a few of the other non-dairy creamers, we tend to favor the Califia Farms one for its texture and taste. Because it's also low in sugar, it just makes that dairy-free coffee a little bit healthier in the morning.
