I am wondering if anyone has a recipe for a good tasting coffee creamer. I ask not only to save some money, but to get an alternative to half and half and evaporated milk, to lower my cholesterol.
I eat a mostly plant-based diet, and so to me the best cream can be made with soaked cashews
you can either make straight-up cream like for whipped desserts, or put in coffee as is, or dilute with almond milk to get more of a half and half type product
I have used this recipe a lot and LOVE IT - only caveat is it does not have a very long shelf life
I went cold turkey a few years ago and dropped cream to cut calories.
I like cinnamon in my coffee or nutmeg, or if I crave sweetness, a drop of maple syrup or honey.
If I want a little extra treat, I have found the Maxwell House International Café Flavored Instant Coffee mixes on sale (after the holidays usually) and I combine it with a coupon, and I use a teaspoon of that in my coffee to give it a little zip.
I would suggest using almond milk, or coconut milk as a coffee creamer. Also, you can use several drops of pure vanilla or almond extract. You can also use dried milk as a coffee creamer as well.
I like to keep those little cans of condensed milk, this is the sweet kind that is like caramel. A little of this goes great with coffee, but it is so sweet.
Everybody has their own personal ideas as to what makes coffee "good" so you will probably hear a lot of different suggestions.
If you like to try different flavors you might want to try flavor syrups for coffee/milk as these come in sugar-free blends as well and only take a small amount to flavor a cup.
Here is also a site that has suggestions to try.

I am looking for non-dairy coffee flavoring recipes and/or products. The ready-made flavorings create considerable gastric distress for me.I just found that an almond-coconut milk works well for me, so if I can figure out the caramel-like flavor to add, it'll probably work.
Start with plain dry milk and add powdered flavorings like Kool Aid packets. Not sure how to get a caramel flavor, though. Extracts would make the milk moist.
A can of lite coconut milk
Pure vanilla extract and
Pure maple syrup
Mix together and put a little in your coffee.
