Vegan Creamer – PlantX UK

Oatly’s Oatly Creamy Oats Fraiche.

Plant-based creamer and vegan creamer can also come in handy during baking! Sometimes, a recipe just calls for a touch of heavy cream. Now, you can find vegan creamers perfect for baking too!

Dairy-free creamers also come in liquid as well as powdered form - but these are usually made for coffee and tea. We’ve yet to find a powdered vegan creamer made specifically for cooking! But, if we do happen to find one, chances are you’ll find it here at PlantX in no time.

Loved for having multitudes of uses, vegan creamer is a kitchen hack that’s light on the pockets. Get some vegan creamer for yourself and see what all the fuss is about!

Vegan Creamer and Its Benefits

Many things make vegan creamer awesome. Here is our C.R.E.A.M.E.R list to point out why vegan creamer is just the best!

C is for cholesterol! Regular creamer is a sneaky one. Most of them aren’t even made with cream but are made with a mix of oils, sweeteners, and thickeners. Oil, a trans fat source, can contribute to your cholesterol levels. We are aware that vegan creamers do contain oils as well, but it is still likely less than that of regular creamer!

R is ready to use. Vegan creamer can be used straight out of the carton, just like the real thing! It’s hassle-free and delicious at the same time. 

E is for emissions. Going on the topic of cattle, did you know that they are the number one agricultural source of greenhouse gases? That’s worldwide! Less cattle, less emissions. Vegan creamer is better for the environment!

A means availability. There used to be a time when vegan creamers were hard to find because not a lot of companies were making them. Not anymore! That makes switching to a vegan creamer and a plant-based diet easier.

M stands for multitudes of uses. Just like dairy-based creamer, vegan creamer can be used in different ways. It can be used for baking as well as cooking (just like Sojade’s Organic Soya Based Cream Alternative). Plus, vegan creamer is used in making loads of desserts.

E is for ease of use. Using vegan creamer is a no-brainer as the ratio is often 1:1. No need for calculation, dilution, or any prep work. Just open the carton of vegan creamer and use it straight away.

R stands for their reliability. Vegan creamer wouldn’t be any good if it curdled or just did not deliver any richness. Nowadays, plant-based creamers have become ever so reliable by being able to withstand heat and still retain their delicious creaminess.

That’s our list on the benefits of vegan creamers! We hope that could sway you into getting vegan creamers rather than their counterparts. The planet will surely thank you for it!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is non-dairy cream healthy?

Generally, vegan creamers appear to be healthier than other creamers like the ones with dairy and animal-derived fat in them. The non-vegan creamers you’ll find on the supermarket shelves sometimes aren’t even made with actual cream! They could potentially just be a mix of sweeteners, thickeners, and oils - which is not great for our bodies.

Non-dairy creamers possibly have fewer amounts of saturated fat and calories. It’s unavoidable if you consider ingredients like coconut milk and sugar. If you want to skip the sugar, you can find unsweetened options of vegan creamers. 

Can you know if your vegan cream is gluten-free or not?

Of course! We’re big readers of boxes and labels here at PlantX. We mark products as gluten-free if they are. Plus, you can always double-check by reading the product label on the vegan creamers. But as a general rule, avoid oat vegan creamers if you’re looking for gluten-free options. 

One tip for label reading is that we don’t just rely on them. We also like to read the ingredients list to make sure they don’t have the ingredients our diets won’t allow. If you keep doing this, you’ll find that it gets easier to spot if a food is good for you or not. Practice makes perfect!

Is non-dairy cream vegan or not?

You’ll find non-dairy creamers made from oats, peas, and even seeds. Companies and brands make sure to highlight the main ingredients on their labels. But, you still have to watch out for non-vegan creamers!

Sometimes, brands just skip the dairy but the products are still made with non-vegan ingredients. Even the simplest ingredient, sugar, could be non-vegan! So, to summarise, we can’ be certain that all non-dairy creams are vegan. Watch out!

Is non-dairy cream used for weight loss?

Yes and no. Yes because adapting to non-dairy creamers from dairy-based ones could lead you down the path of fewer calories and fats - and that’s key in weight loss management. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have any! Vegan and non-dairy cream still has fats and calories, just they’re usually better ones nutrition-wise. 

No , if you’d really like to lose some weight, it’s best to skip them altogether. It’s still adding calories and fat, no matter how small the amount may be. You could also try unsweetened or low-calorie variants for that extra edge.

What does vegan creamer taste like?

This depends on the key ingredient. Much like nut milk, vegan creamers are made with different main ingredients.

Here’s how we would explain it - Non-dairy creamers made from soybeans are likely to have hints of, well, soy! The same can be said with non-dairy creamers made with coconuts or even almonds. 

If adding soy, coconut, and soy flavours to your cooking or morning brew doesn’t sound appealing to you don’t fret! You can get vegan creamer that tastes just like regular creamer without any hints of plant-based ingredients, like Oatly’s Oatly Creamy Oat

Does plant-based creamer contain oils?

A lot of vegan creamers contain oils of some kind like rapeseed, coconut oil, vegetable oil, and even palm oil. While chances are you’ll find some that don’t, it is more common than you’ll find dairy-free creamers that do.

Why does vegan creamer have oils to begin with? Well, it’s needed to give them their creamy texture. Also, it is oil that allows a lot of dairy-free creamers to be shelf-stable. So it’s quite necessary!
