While coffee purists may insist it's meant to be black, most of us need a little something to thicken, sweeten or cool down our morning brew. Milk, cream, or creamers are the perfect solution for two-thirds of the world's coffee drinkers.
Different Types of Coffee Creamer
While cow's milk is the most common milk used in coffee, as global coffee consumption grows, alternatives to milk are growing in popularity. Goat's milk lends an earthy taste to a cup of coffee, while buffalo milk adds a very creamy texture and a complex sweet and tangy taste.
Plant milks like almond, coconut, cashew, soy, rice and oat milk are increasingly popular as more and more people choose to follow vegan diets. While they come in a variety of flavors and in a heavy, creamy format, these coffee creamers work for the lactose intolerant too. Many are now also available in flavors like French vanilla, Italian sweet creme, and Hazelnut.
Flavors of Coffee Creamers
Coffee creamers have come a long way since their invention in the late 1950s. Whether powdered or liquid, flavored or sweetened, Sam's Club has a variety of liquid, powdered, and specialty creamers, including shelf-stable options for high-volume environments.
There are more options than ever before to jazz up your morning brew without paying coffee shop prices. Lactose-free, vegan, and even kosher creamers are now available from Sam's Club. Experiment with the taste of several different creamers to see which you like best, and keep a few options on hand for guests and different coffee roasts. Some creamers work better with one roast than another.
While coffee creamers don't contain lactose and are considered non-dairy, some do contain the milk protein sodium caseinate. The milk protein acts as both a thickener and an emulsifier, so if you're avoiding all milk proteins as well as lactose or searching for kosher coffee creamer, read the ingredient labels carefully before buying.
Sam's Club offers a variety of flavors and options.

Nestle's Coffee-Mate creamers are non-dairy, lactose-free, cholesterol-free and gluten-free. They average 20 calories per tablespoon and come in flavored, powder, singles, and shelf-stable liquid.
Gluten-free, lactose-free and trans-fat-free are standard features of International Delight's creamers. Sold in single 48- or 64-ounce bottles or in two-packs, they're certified kosher and have only 35 calories per serving. Try flavors like Pumpkin Pie Spice, French Vanilla, Caramel Macchiato, or Hazelnut. Some flavors are also available in boxes of singles.
Coffee creamers are fortified with vitamins and minerals like calcium, vitamin D and iron, which provide your body with the nutrients that it needs to function. Some of these options are completely natural, meaning they have no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. There are low-calorie, low fat, low cholesterol, low sugar, and kosher coffee creamers.
Liquid creamers will need to be refrigerated after opening, while powdered creamers, whether in individual packets or jars, are shelf stable and will last up to two years without needing refrigeration. An average serving size of liquid creamer is one tablespoon, while the average serving size of a powdered creamer is a single packet or a tablespoon.
Calorie counts range from 10 to 35 calories depending on serving size and since some creamers contain coconut oil, they may also contain varying amounts of saturated fats. Coffee-Mate French Vanilla (its original flavor) and Hazelnut options use coconut oil to get their creamy consistency. Each individual capsule serving has eight grams of saturated fat.
What Can I Make with Creamers?
Coffee creamers can sweeten and thicken your morning coffee without adding a lot of calories or cholesterol, but there are many other uses for creamers. Experiment by trying your favorite coffee creamer in tea or hot chocolate, or blend a little creamer into hot cereal.
You can add a little bit of coffee creamer to cookie dough to give your baked goods an extra blast of flavor. Or use them in cakes or pies, pour over fresh fruit, add to cream-based soups, mashed or sweet potatoes, or squash.
Don't just think hot beverages when you want to get creative with your favorite coffee creamer. Shakes, floats, smoothies, cold brew coffees and martinis can all be enhanced with flavored coffee creamers.
In addition to a whole host of innovative and delicious beverages, you may use creamers in cupcakes, lava cakes, parfaits, skillet cakes, brownies, donuts, cheesecakes, icebox cakes, crepes, waffles, cinnamon rolls, trifles, and fruit pizzas.
