Dairy-Free Coffee Creamer

  • Author: Amanda @ Running with Spoons
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 2 cups 1x


  • 1/2 cup (90 g) of dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) hot water
  • 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) light canned coconut milk*
  • 1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract


  1. Add the dates and hot water to a high-speed blender or food processor. If your dates are a little dry, allow them to soak for 10 – 15 minutes so that they’ll be easier to blend. Otherwise, process oh high until the dates have broken down and turned into a smooth paste, scraping down the sides of your blender as necessary.
  2. Add the coconut milk and vanilla extract, and continue processing until everything is well combined and the mixture becomes smooth.
  3. Transfer to an airtight container. You can run the creamer through a fine mesh strainer to ensure no bigger pieces of dates remain, but it shouldn’t be necessary with a high-speed blender. Store in the fridge for up to a week. Creamer will thicken as it sits.


* Depending on how creamy you want your creamer, you can replace up to half of the canned coconut milk with a non-dairy milk of your choice. Or, you can sub it out entirely and add 1/4 tsp. of xanthan gum to thicken it up.
