Vanilla Coffee Creamer

Flavored coffee creamer drives my husband nuts. Even so, I still make this classic vanilla recipe all the time. It’s better (and cheaper) than store-bought—and I know exactly what’s in it! —Shauna Sever, San Francisco, California

Thanks to this recipe from Confessions of an Overworked Mom, you can enjoy the flavors of Bailey’s Irish Cream coffee without adding any of the alcohol! Weekday mornings just got a whole lot better.

Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer

This inexpensive peppermint mocha creamer from A Latte Food is one of our favorites. We don’t know which peppermint mocha component we love more: the rich, chocolatey flavor from the cocoa powder or the refreshing finish of peppermint extract. Luckily, we don’t have to choose!

Dairy-Free Hazelnut Coffee Creamer

There’s so much to love about this dairy-free, Paleo-friendly coffee creamer from Saltnpepperhere. You basically make a rich and creamy almond milk before sweetening it up with maple syrup and hazelnut extract. It takes a few extra steps, but it’s totally worth it. (Psst! Here are a few of our other favorite healthy coffee creamers.)
