Coffee creamer, anyone? Vital Coffee Roasters fans love pouring the velvety, decadent add-on in their morning and mid-afternoon mug. And while the addition makes for a flavorful experience that always sets the mood for the day, it’s important to note that not all coffee creamers are created equal. Some are loaded with superfluous ingredients that make up a never-ending nutritional label, while others stand out for their focus on wellness while still making taste a priority.
Let's dive in.
What Is In A Coffee Creamer?
If you’re wondering, “which coffee creamer is healthiest?” keep reading. (Spoiler: You’ll be able to shop for our top pick on this same page!) Generally speaking, coffee creamers – while delicious – are chock full of artificial ingredients and sugars. Of course, that’s not true for all coffee creamers, but it’s definitely something java aficionados should be mindful of when they're browsing for their new favorite pick in the coffee aisle.
What Coffee Creamer Is Healthiest?
As we previously mentioned, many coffee creamers contain a lot of sugar. But there’s no need to omit better-for-you ingredients if a flavorful boost to your routine is what you’re after. Keeping both present in every serving is possible. Our dairy-free, keto-friendly supplements make it happen.
What Can I Put In Coffee Instead Of Creamer?
If you prefer to keep your daily ritual a dairy-free experience, we recommend reaching for our line of Vital Proteins Collagen Creamers® (available in Coconut, Vanilla & Mocha flavors). Each offering is free of gluten, dairy and artificial sweeteners for a Whole30® Approved start to your day. Just take it from a few fans:
“100% addictive!! Part of my new morning routine! I love this stuff!”
-Joey M., Mocha Collagen Creamer
-Bethany K., Vanilla Collagen Creamer
“A creamy, tasty way to sneak in some collagen!”
-Laura U., Coconut Collagen Creamer
Intrigued but consider yourself a purist? Our OG Collagen Peptides (it’s flavorless and odorless!) will do the trick. Plus, it's a favorite among wellness enthusiasts and influencers, like Whole30® founder Melissa Hartwig Urban.
“I use the individual serving stick packs, as they’re perfect for travel,” Hartwig Urban tells Lively. “I love knowing I can add a quick 10g of collagen to just about anything (water, coffee, tea) on the go.”
What Is The Best Collagen Creamer?
Okay, okay, so we may be biased, but trust us on this – our best-selling, celebrity-loved Collagen Creamers are a favorite for a reason. Not only are they free of gluten, dairy and added sweeteners, but they’re also made with your wellness goals in mind. In addition to boasting MCTs (thanks to the organic coconut milk powder, aka healthy fats every keto fan will love), all 3 Collagen Creamers are made with 10g of grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine collagen.
As the body’s most abundant protein, collagen is the glue that holds everything together. As we age, the body’s natural collagen production begins to decline. That’s where Vital Proteins®’ expansive collection of collagen supplements comes in. Our offerings help support healthy hair, skin, nails and joints.** Just scoop, stir & sip!
The beauty of this terrific Collagen Creamer trio – much like the rest of our collagen powders – is that there’s more than one way to use it. Go beyond adding a scoop to your Vital Coffee and experiment with 70+ Collagen Creamer recipes on our Lively blog, which features recipes for donuts, bliss balls and ice cream sandwiches. A fuller, more vibrant life starts here.
