5 Unique Uses for Coffee Creamer

The following post and photography were provided by our partner, Kayla Breeden Falconer of Kayla’s Kitch and Fix.

While coffee creamer is something many of use every day in our morning (or afternoon) brews, it is actually a very useful product to have on hand for all kinds of kitchen creations! Here are a handful of my favorite ways to use coffee creamer to ensure you make the most of every last drop!

Nutpods Coffee Creamer Packaging

My creamer of choice is Nutpods plant-based coffee companion. With a simple ingredient list and zero sugar or dairy, it’s delicious in coffee and makes a great addition to the following healthy treats.

1. Use in Place of Heavy Cream in Soups
To make soup creamy, simply swap heavy cream for unflavored coffee creamer by mixing it into the recipe or swirling it over top.

2. Sub for Water or Milk in Baked Goods
If you happen to be out of milk when baking, use coffee creamer instead! Using a vanilla-flavored variety is a great way to add extra vanilla flavor to your favorite sweet treats.

3. Make a Two Ingredient Fruit Sorbet
Blend together 1 cup of your favorite Heinen’s frozen fruit with 2 Tbsp. of creamer for a scoop of delicious and natural fruit sorbet! Then, when the weather is warm, turn it into a cocktail with a splash of sparkling wine or a mocktail with your favorite seltzer water.

4. Shake Up Creamy Cocktails
Add a splash of coffee creamer to decadent cocktails, like White Russians or Espresso Martinis! This is also a fun way to add flavor depending on the variety of creamer you choose.

5. Whisk Together a Sugar-Free Icing
In a bowl, combine monk fruit powdered sugar (or regular powdered sugar) with a splash of coffee creamer to make a super easy and silky icing for muffins, cupcakes, cakes and more! Play around with the measurements to reach your desired consistency.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
