The Instacart guide to coffee creamer products


About coffee creamers

Coffee creamer is a product that consumers may use to enhance the flavor of their coffee instead of half-and-half or cream. It boasts a longer shelf life than regular milk products, especially if you select the powdered form. Creamer comes in a wide variety of flavors, including numerous seasonal varieties such as peppermint mocha and pumpkin spice, so you're bound to find a flavor that satisfies your palate.

Instead of using dairy-based ingredients, coffee creamer is made out of sugar or a sugar substitute, oil, and thickeners. These thickeners might include corn syrup, which changes the consistency and adds the flavor you lose when eliminating milk or cream. If you suffer from common food allergies, you'll be happy to know that many creamers are not only lactose-free but also gluten-free.

When shopping for coffee creamer, you can choose between two forms:
  • Liquid creamer: You will find the liquid creamer in the dairy section since it needs refrigeration. It comes in a wide variety of flavors, and you'll likely find low-fat and sugar-free options. Containers are usually offered in 8, 16, or 32-ounce bottles. This option is the top pick for iced coffee since powdered creamer takes extra stirring to dissolve without heat.
  • Powdered creamer: You will find powdered creamer on the shelf near the coffee beans. It's also available in numerous flavors, although the most common is plain or sweetened milk. You can usually purchase it in single-cup packets or a resealable container.
With either option, you simply add the creamer to your coffee, stir, and enjoy. Since some creamers are sweeter than others, you might want to start with just a little and then add more to taste.

Although coffee creamer comes in a multitude of flavors, some of the more popular ones include the following:
  • French Vanilla: Adding French vanilla creamer will kick up your coffee a notch by giving it a subtle vanilla flavor. Consider this flavor if you're just starting to experiment with creamer.
  • Hazelnut: With a nutty and sweet flavor, hazelnut pairs very well with coffee and heightens its bold flavor. It's one of the more popular flavors among coffee drinkers.
  • Italian Sweet Cream: If you're looking to add a little sweetness to your cup of coffee, consider this increasingly popular flavor.
  • Peppermint Mocha: As one of the sweeter options, peppermint mocha gives you a strong mint flavor that's perfect for enjoying around the holidays.
  • Pumpkin Spice: Once fall hits, this flavor seems to jump off the shelves as people flock to buy everything pumpkin. The spices combine with almond and provide the perfect blend for coffee.

FAQs About Coffee Creamers

If you have a favorite seasonal flavor of creamer and want to enjoy it later during the year, you might think about freezing the creamer. Manufacturers don't recommend freezing liquid dairy creamer, but non-dairy creamer can be frozen.

The best way to freeze creamer is to portion it out into ice cube trays, so you have single-serving amounts. Cover the trays with aluminum foil, stick them in the freezer, and let them freeze for 2-3 hours. Once it's frozen into cubes, remove them from the trays and place them in a freezer-safe plastic bag. It's best to use this frozen creamer within 6 months.

It's important to note, though, that while many non-dairy creamers don't contain lactose -- which is the sugar found in milk that some people have a hard time digesting -- that they still might contain casein, which is a milk protein that can affect people with milk allergies.

The good news is that if you are allergic to milk or have eliminated dairy products from your diet, there are numerous types of plant-based coffee creamer on the market that you can still enjoy.
