Unless you prefer your coffee black, you might like a little sweetness and creaminess with your morning cup of coffee.

I’m hopeful that this list of the best Sugar-Free Coffee Creamers will come in handy.

Below are my top picks for sugar-free creamers without any unnecessary chemicals like artificial sweeteners, artificial flavor, or hydrogenated oils. Add these healthy creamers to your sugar-free grocery list!

My focus is to offer you the best options—without scary ingredients, additives, or ingredients like corn syrup solids that just don’t do us (or our gut) service.

If you want a little more sweetness for any of these unsweetened options, add your preferred sugar-free sweetener.

My favorite non-nutritive zero-calorie sweetener is monk fruit, but you can also read more about the best natural sugar substitutes.

You may also want to understand the difference between natural sugars and added sugars before you test and find your favorite.

This unsweetened nut milk creamer is half almond milk, half coconut cream, and all delicious.

With no added sugar, this is a great dairy-free alternative to half and half. I could swear it tastes like heavy cream!

It’s vegan, but not nut-free, just to keep in mind if you have a nut allergy.

Just add a splash (or two!) to your favorite coffee! Keep refrigerated. Califia Farms also has an unsweetened Vanilla flavor with zero sugar that is perfect for a sugar-free diet.

2. Best Sugar-Free French Vanilla Creamer: Mastermind Coffee Focus Creamer

Mastermind Coffee’s French Vanilla Focus Creamer is made with organic ingredients and sweetened with monk fruit. It’s vegan, dairy-free, and soy-free.

There are no additives to the all-natural powdered ingredients, so they recommend adding a few spoonfuls to your coffee and then mixing with a milk frother or hand blender for the creamiest result!

NutPods’ Hazelnut creamer is unsweetened and dairy-free with all the flavor of your favorite hazelnut! Add your preferred amount to your favorite coffee for optimal flavor.

It’s vegan but does contain tree nuts, so keep that in mind if you have a nut allergy. It’s shelf-stable but you should refrigerate it after opening.

NutPods also has several other unsweetened flavored creamers such as: toasted marshmallow, french vanilla, cinnamon swirl, and caramel.

4. Best Unsweetened Vegan Creamer: Sunwarrior Harvest Coconut Milk

a jug of Sunwarrior Harvest Coconut Milk.

This is the best single-ingredient vegan coffee creamer. It’s just organic powdered coconut milk.

It’s vegan, dairy-free, and unsweetened. All you need to do is add a spoonful to your coffee and mix or froth.

It’s a dry powder that you can keep in your pantry and add to any beverage including hot or iced coffee. I consider this product appropriate for a healthy grocery shopping list.

5. Best Unsweetened Organic Half & Half: Clover Sonoma

The simplest of creamers: No sugar added, just organic milk and organic cream. Great for those who can tolerate dairy!

This one does have natural sugars from the lactose, but it has no added sugars.

Just a splash and you’ll transform your coffee. Keep refrigerated, and enjoy.

7. Best Homemade Plant-Based Coffee Creamer: Steel Cut Oat Milk Creamer

I might be a little bit biased because this is my recipe, but, sometimes the best way to get coffee creamer exactly how you want it is to make it yourself.

This is a gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free recipe that is quick and easy to make. It just requires a little prep to soak the oats for a few hours, and then it’s smooth sailing.

I use maple syrup in this recipe, so to be sugar-free either add monk fruit sweetener instead or omit it altogether for an unsweetened version!

You can also add vanilla bean or vanilla extract for a vanilla-flavored oat milk creamer.

Sugar-Free Coffee Creamer FAQs

What is dipotassium phosphate?

Dipotassium Phosphate is a synthetic salt used as an emulsifier and shelf-stabilizer in foods such as dairy and non-dairy creamers. It is considered safe to consume as a food ingredient in the US, Canada, and Europe and is vegetarian and vegan. If you don’t want it in your food, then make your own coffee creamer instead. Or, look for a brand that doesn’t have it in the ingredient list.

What is acesulfame potassium?

Acesulfame potassium is an artificial sweetener added to food and beverages. It’s also known as Ace-K or Acesulfame K, and is sold by manufacturers such as Sweet One and Sunett.

It’s about 200 times sweeter than conventional sugar, which means much less is needed to achieve that sweet taste.

It’s deemed safe for consumption by the FDA, but at least one study suggests it can shift the gut’s microbiome and cause inflammation over time. Because it is an artificial sweetener, I recommend avoiding this ingredient.

What is sodium caseinate?

Sodium caseinate is derived from casein, a protein found in milk from mammals (most commonly, cows). It is often used in protein powder, coffee creamer including the non-dairy kind, cheese, cheese flavoring, whipped topping, and more.

It is used as an emulsifier and frother and is deemed safe for consumption except for those with a milk-protein allergy. If you are lactose-free, you can still consume sodium caseinate, but if you are vegan you’ll want to skip this ingredient.


If you want to drink coffee but are sugar-free, you don’t have to stick to plain black coffee! There are many sugar-free coffee creamers out there, both sweetened and unsweetened so you can still have your perfect cup and be mindful of your dietary needs.
