Hi everyone, I searched for some answers but didn't really find anything, so I thought I'd ask here.<br><br>
I've been in the process of cutting down on my dairy for a while now. We've probably cut out 80% of the dairy we eat, and stopped buying new leather and wool products (yay). But the biggest thorn in my side is coffee. We make coffee at home every morning, and I like my coffee very sweet and very light. Right now I am using half & half (please no comments on the calories or whatever, I don't care) and I have tried to not use half & half but come back to it every time. We don't have a lot of options for vegan cream where we are. I've tried the Silk vanilla cream, and I just hate the taste of soy milk, and I think it tastes gross in coffee. I also don't want to use the Coffee Mate, since that has hydrogenated oils in it. Is there some kind of coconut cream I can use? Or some kind of cut cream I can make? Every couple of months we make a drive out to the capital to stock up on foods we can get where we live, so I can keep my eye out for vegan goods we don't have here.<br><br>
Thanks in advance.

Coffee Mate also isn't vegan -- it has casein in it. Very frustrating that all of the "non dairy" mainstream creamers have casein.<br><br>
I asked this question a few weeks ago and someone recommended I try MimicCreme. I still haven't seen it in any stores, but ordered some of the Hazelnut Biscotti coffee creamer from Amazon and I really like it. I had to buy 6 though. It is VERY thick...thicker than half & half. More like heavy cream in texture. I think it creams it very well even though it still doesn't color it as light as the liquid Coffee Mate.<br><br>
I have also heard that coconut milk is good in coffee but I haven't tried it.<br><br>
You might check the stores you go to occasionally for the MimicCreme...it is shelf stable until opened so probably either with the coffee or the shelf stable soy milk.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll keep my eyes peeled tomorrow at the store for the MimicCreme : )
