My morning cup of Lavazza + this Vanilla Oat Vegan Coffee Creamer are just about as perfect as can be. It’s the little things, right?
If you like your coffee rich, creamy (yet dairy-free!) and flavourful, you need Lavazza Gran Selezione and you totally need this quick and easy, healthy vegan coffee creamer.
What I love about this creamer is you don’t need to soak almonds or cashews for hours to make it, you only need a few minutes for your oats and you’re all set! I’ve actually made this with hemp seeds too, which is also most delicious.
Store-bought dairy-free coffee creamers are ok in a pinch but they’re also filled with ingredients you could definitely do without. This version only has a few simple ingredients, and you could even go sugar-free by omitting the maple syrup.
With simple and delicious alternatives like this sweet creamer, replacing the dairy in your diet can be a breeze. Feel free to play around with the add-ins for this too, you can sweeten it with anything from dates to stevia or leave it unsweetened if you prefer. You can leave out the vanilla or try replacing it with almond, maple or coconut extract. You could also replace some of the water with coconut milk for another layer of flavour!
To pair with my Lavazza coffee and this delicious vanilla oat creamer, I’ve got amazing espresso cookies coming in just a few days! Now, you could pack all these items up in a beautiful gift basket for a friend, OR you could sit back and enjoy the holidays while sipping away on creamy cups of Lavazza. I plan to do both. I’ve got batches of my Espresso Cookies going out to friends, paired with cute mugs, coffee creamer and of course, Lavazza coffee. Stay tuned for that on Saturday!
This dairy-free creamer pairs perfectly with Lavazza Gran Selezione. It comes from Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee farms and has an intense flavour with chocolate undertones and a full-bodied taste. Ummm, yum. So if you need me over the holidays, I’ll be here, drinking all the Lavazza and eating all the cookies.
Vanilla Oat Vegan Coffee Creamer
- ½ cup rolled oats

Be sure to check back on Saturday for the cookie recipe! A few batches of those, a few packages of Lavazza and some homemade vanilla oat creamer and you’re all set for the coffee-lovers in your life. Or for Christmas morning, that works too.
