The Best Dairy Free Coffee Creamer Recipe [Nutpods Copycat]

If you’re looking for a dairy free coffee creamer that is on point with the name brand Nutpods, try out this creamier, cheaper version that is simple to make.

For some people, conventional coffee creamers don’t sit well, they are allergic to the ingredients or they want to drink their coffee with simple (pronouncable) healthy ingredients. If any of these scenarios fits you, then you’ll love this creamy dairy free coffee creamer recipe that is much cheaper than the name brand Nutpods creamers. (The French Vanilla flavor was my favorite!)

This recipe was born when I ran out of my beloved Nutpod creamers one morning. Knowing I couldn’t get by with a new baby without coffee, I tried my hand at making my own version of Nutpods, which turned out just as creamy and tasty at much less the cost.

You can whip up this copycat version in less than 5 minutes—and it may even be a tad creamier than the Nutpods version. Plus it doesn’t hurt that this batch costs less than half the price per ounce than Nutpods!

      1. How well does this stay emulsified over a few days in the fridge? I wonder if adding a little lecithin would help the shelf life (and if so, how much).

        1. Hi there. I often use a hand immersion blender to make this and it stays emulsified over the week while I consume it. I have never worked with lecithin before so I wish I could pipe in more.

  1. Hi-I have a question-what about the gums used in Nutpods to thicken it? Will this recipe stay distributed throughout your coffee like Nutpods or will it act like coconut milk or almond milk alone? Do you know if it will froth in a frother?

    1. Hi–good question! Mine only lasts in the fridge for less than a week, but thankfully it doesn’t separate since it is well blended. It also stirs evenly in my coffee. I have never used a frother though so I am unsure about that.
