One of the things that you will probably miss the most when following a vegan or keto diet is being able to put creamer in your coffee. Unfortunately, coffee creamer is just about the least keto-friendly addition you can make to your coffee, ranking somewhere between the use of heavy cream and the inclusion of sugar. Fortunately, we have a recipe for coffee creamer that does not include any of these ingredients.
In this piece, we are going to share with you the recipe for our go-to creamer that complies with keto and vegan diets. We make our creamer with coconut cream and stevia instead of the conventional heavy cream and sugar so that you may indulge in your favourite creamer while also taking advantage of the health advantages of following a ketogenic diet. The preparation does not take a lot of time and calls for a small number of components as well as pieces of equipment.

Substitutions and Adjustments
There are several substitutions and adjustments you can make to the base recipe to make it more suitable for different uses.

The liquid coconut milk is most often used in place of the solid coconut cream when individuals are attempting to make a substitute. We find that using coconut milk with the full amount of fat is the best way to maintain the desired level of thickness and creaminess. The ratio for this alternative is 1 and 12 cups of coconut milk for every 3/4 cup of coconut cream that is called for in the original recipe.

Although the powdered version of stevia is more convenient for some individuals, we recommend that you use the liquid form since it can be mixed more easily. If you choose to use powdered stevia rather than liquid, the conversion rate is one packet for every one-fourth teaspoon of liquid stevia.
If you use powdered stevia, it may take a bit longer to get a smooth texture. Because of this, you should check the consistency before you finish mixing the ingredients, unless you like a creamer with a gritty consistency.
Unflavored vs. Flavored Stevia
Try substituting vanilla stevia for unflavored stevia in our recipe if you find that the vanilla flavour is overpowering for your preferences. Vanilla extract is fairly robust, and it is possible that it will offer you with enough flavour to eliminate the need for flavoured stevia. You might also try using a combination of vanilla and normal stevia for a taste that is just a little bit milder.
Unfortunately, despite our efforts, none of the other tastes performed as well as vanilla did when we tested them. We have a hunch that the vanilla extract is responsible for the majority of the flavour, and that the vanilla stevia only makes a marginal contribution to the flavour as a whole. Vanilla is the flavour to choose if you want to get as near as possible to recreating conventional creamer, since it is the flavour that most closely resembles the dairy-based version.
These days, there is a wide variety of non-dairy milk available, so feel free to test out your preferred alternative. Although oat milk, almond milk, and other nut-based milks perform well and taste fantastic, none of them provide the same frothy texture that coconut cream or coconut milk does. To obtain the thick, creamy feeling that people adore about coffee creamer, you need a high-fat content, and so far, we’ve only discovered coconut milk to be up to the challenge.
It is surprisingly simple to prepare creamer for coffee at home on your own. A blender, a few individual components, and around five minutes are all that are required. This is the recipe that we use to create our go-to keto and vegan-friendly coffee creamer, but we urge you to look into other possibilities and see if you can come up with a variant that you enjoy even more. We believe that coconut milk has the smoothest consistency of any non-dairy milk, and that vanilla extract is the most delicious flavouring option; however, your taste buds may disagree with us on this point! We hope that you may use this recipe as a starting point and a source of inspiration when you make your own coffee creamer.
