Vegan Hazelnut Creamer:
Have you ever read the ingredients in your favorite store bought creamers? Now don’t get me wrong, I am all about balance, and enjoying all things in moderation. But one thing I prefer making homemade, is my creamers for my lattes. And thanks to my Almond Cow it makes it super convenient to make at home in under 1 minute.
What is the Almond Cow?
The almond cow is a machine that can be used to create a variety of plant-based mylk’s and creamers at home in under a minute. And you can use any nut, seed, or grain to make a variety of mylk’s. But what is even more awesome, this machine does all the straining for you, 0 mess, and easy clean up.

Ingredients you will need:
- Medjool dates
- Vanilla extract
- Raw hazelnuts
How to make in the Almond Cow:
Add the soaked dates and hazelnuts to the filter basket of the Almond Cow and seal with the top. To the collector cup fill with water up to the 500 ml line, add vanilla extract, pinch of salt, and mix. And then place the collector cup inside the base of the Almond Cow, and place the top on. Press the Almond Cow button, and let it go through 3 cycles. Once the green light is solid, your creamer is done.
How to make in the blender:
And don’t worry, if you don’t have an Almond Cow, you can make it in your blender. But be sure to soak your hazelnuts and dates overnight or at least for 30 minutes in warm water. Because this helps create a smooth, creamy consistency, and doesn’t make your blender work extra hard. But you will have to strain the creamer using a mesh bag or cheese cloth to get a smooth creamy consistency.
How to store:
I like to store mine in a jar in the refrigerator for up to 5-6 days. Because this creamer does not contain any fillers or gums, it will not last as long as the traditional creamers do. But you could also freeze by placing in silicone ice molds and use when needed.
What can I use it for?
Of course this creamer is perfect addition to your favorite brewed coffee or cold brew. But it also makes a great addition to your favorite smoothie combination in place of your dairy-free mylk.
