I've been vegan for over a year now, and the only thing I miss from my "pregan" days is coffee with milk. I've tried soy and almond milk in coffee, and they're just not the same. Any recommendations for something really creamy for coffee?

I like the Wildwood soy creamer, but you can also get it made by So Delicious (coconut based), Organic Valley and Silk.

Silk creamer is pretty good, and if you like flavored creamer I've never seen coffee flavor syrups that aren't vegan.

I dig Silk's creamers, especially the French Vanilla flavor and the Hazelnut flavor.

I second the So Delicious Coconut Creamer vote. It comes in original, french vanilla, and hazelnut. And all of them are fat free!

I used to use the So Delicious creamer. I liked it, and now that I think about it I'm not sure why I stopped. I'll have to pick some up and try it again!

I prefer my coffee black, but I think that Trader Joe's creamer is very good. It's repackaged something else, maybe wildwood? I just tried So Delicious Hazelnut Coconut Creamer and hate it. The hazelnut taste is overwhelming and grossing me out, which is surprising because I usually enjoy hazelnut. Right now, I am enjoying the occasional splash of Silk Holiday Nog in my coffee.

I like silk creamer but even just the silk original is good. It's better if it's full fat. Also silk's coconut milk works really well in coffee, too.

I really like the Silk creamer, but I have read that carrageenan can be bad for your stomach lining, so I try to avoid it.
Does anyone else worry about this? It's a problem, since carrageenan is a thickener in most non-dairy milks, yogurts, etc.
I have found a couple of soy milks that don't use it, and I use those in my coffee most of the time.

Carrageenan used for food shouldn't be a problem:

EU recommends no more than 5% of degraded carrageenan in carrageenan used for food:
