I’m a big coffee drinker. I drink a couple of cups of black coffee in the morning and towards the middle of the day, I love to slow down and enjoy a cup of coffee that’s lightly sweetened with this healthy chocolate coffee creamer.

Coffee creamers that I find in the grocery come in such large bottles. It takes so long for me to finish them off. In fact, by the time I get half-way through the bottle, I’m always afraid that the coffee creamer may have gone sour or I’m tired of the flavor by then.

This small batch chocolate coffee creamer recipe is the perfect size if you’re cooking in a household with one or two people. You aren’t left with a huge amount that can easily go to waste.

This non dairy creamer recipe will make a little over a cup of creamer, just the right amount to last anywhere from a few days to about a week, depending on how much creamer you use in your coffee.

Ingredients In Non Dairy Chocolate Coffee Creamer

The ingredient list for making homemade chocolate coffee creamer is short. I use:

  • unsweetened coconut milk
  • honey
  • unsweetened cocoa powder
  • vanilla

You can use regular milk or almond milk if you prefer but I really love the taste that the coconut milk adds to the creamer. It reminds me a little of a caffè mocha.

How To Make Chocolate Coffee Creamer

Step 1

Combine the unsweetened coconut milk and the honey in a small pot set over medium heat. When the milk begins to simmer, remove the pot from the heat and whisk in a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder and a half of a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Step 2

Allow the chocolate coffee creamer to cool to room temperature, then transfer to a jar or bottle.

Homemade healthy coffee creamer is so much better than any store-bought creamer. With this healthy chocolate coffee creamer you know exactly what’s in it. There are no artificial ingredients and no sugar added.

  1. I love this!!! My coffee was suffeeeing when I went dairy free until I found this. I prefer to use coconut milk from the can (it’s thicker and I prefer my creamers to be a little richer) but it’s fantastic!!

  2. 5 stars

    Love this idea! Some creamers are so packed with sugar, but this gives the coffee a kick without the guilt!

    Oh Wow! The coconut milk combined with coffee sound awesome and healthy as well.. What is the shelf life of this creamer? I myself am a big time coffee drinker and looking forward to try this.

    This was perfect – I always have a black coffee but friends and family that visit love coffee with a creamer however like you when I buy they are always so big. Thank you for the solution and my friends have all given it a thumbs up.
