Vegan Coffee Creamers for the Perfect Morning Cup
When it comes to coffee and tea creamers, you may have to try a few before you find the perfect one for you. Some are creamier, some are sweeter, but there's something that all the best ones have in common: They don't harm cows by using their milk. Even if creamers tout a "dairy-free" label, you may find milk derivatives such as casein in the ingredients. Thankfully, there are so many delicious vegan creamers to choose from, and they're widely available in most grocery stores.
Here are some of our favorites:
With four soy and three almond flavors, there's something for everyone.
Ripple Foods is tapping into the power of peas with vegan creamers that have less saturated fat and cholesterol than dairy creamers plus added omega-6s and omega-3s from plant sources. This is perfect for those who don't have a sweet tooth.
Coconut milk flavors include French Vanilla, Hazelnut, Original, Barista Style French Vanilla and Barista Style Original. If you prefer almonds, the brand has you covered with Caramel, French Vanilla and Hazelnut varieties.
This health-conscious company (and PETA Business Friend) has thought of an ingenious way to start your day: with superfoods in your coffee. Its delicious vegan and gluten-free coffee creamers are packed with superfoods like coconut milk, Aquamin (calcium from marine algae), organic extra-virgin coconut oil, turmeric and others. Plus, the creamers don't need to be refrigerated, so you can take them with you on camping trips and other adventures.
This brand's powdered creamer is sold in 6-ounce canisters and single-serving packets. The hazelnut and vanilla varieties are low in sugar and don't have the refined sugar often found in other flavored creamers.
The brand's creamer is called Better Half, and that makes sense—this dairy-free option blends almond milk with coconut cream and is gluten-free, carrageenan-free and non-GMO.
This brand uses coconut cream and almonds to create a perfect texture. It offers seasonal flavors like Pumpkin Spice and Vanilla Lemon, and you can choose Hazelnut, Original and French Vanilla year-round.
Simple Truth Coconutmilk Creamer
Wildwood Organic has been around for a while, and with a product that has a super-creamy texture and only 1 gram of sugar per serving, you can see why its recipe is tried and true. It's also easy to find in most grocery stores.
This "accidentally vegan" creamer comes in Caramel, Original Cream, Sweet Cream, French Vanilla, Mocha and Hazelnut flavors.
This vegan creamer's ingredients are pure and simple: coconut water, virgin coconut milk, unrefined coconut sugar, guar bean gum and xanthan gum. We love it!
Don't brew your own coffee at home? Almost all places that serve it offer soy, almond, coconut and other vegan milks, so don't be afraid to ask for them.

Climate Week this year coincides with clear skies in Washington state for the first time in almost two weeks.
In just a few days in early September, Washington state saw enough acres burned – more than 600,000 – to reach our second-worst fire season on record. Our worst fire season came only five years ago. Wildfires aren't new to the west, but their scope and danger today is unlike anything firefighters have seen. People up and down the West Coast – young and old, in rural areas and in cities – were choking on smoke for days on end, trapped in their homes.
Fires like these are becoming the norm, not the exception.

To understand the planetary importance of this autumn's presidential election, check the calendar. Voting ends on November 3—and by a fluke of timing, on the morning of November 4 the United States is scheduled to pull out of the Paris Agreement.
President Trump announced that we would abrogate our Paris commitments during a Rose Garden speech in 2017. But under the terms of the accords, it takes three years to formalize the withdrawal. So on Election Day it won't be just Americans watching: The people of the world will see whether the country that has poured more carbon into the atmosphere than any other over the course of history will become the only country that refuses to cooperate in the one international effort to do something about the climate crisis.
