Creamer Hacks: Ways to Use Organic Coffee Creamer
Have you heard the buzz about Organic Valley flavored organic coffee creamers? With two flavors—French Vanilla and Sweet Cream—your cup of coffee just got a whole lot sweeter. Not just because these creamers are made with organic ingredients and flavored to perfection, but they have 40% less sugar than the leading coffee creamer!
I am sharing amazing ideas to add organic coffee creamers into something other than your cup of joe! Because the new Organic Valley flavored creamers are lactose-free, they are gentle to digest for those with sensitive stomachs—all the more reason to add into your favorite snacks and meals!
Creamer in Pancakes, Waffles, French Toast
Try adding Organic Valley coffee creamer into your pancakes, waffles, or French toast! These recipes almost always have milk, so replacing a portion of the milk with coffee creamer adds extra moisture, and in this case—flavor! Try my French Vanilla Blueberry Pancake recipe where I use a combination of milk and Organic Valley French Vanilla Creamer.
Add Creamer to Tea
Organic coffee creamers can be added into your tea, just like coffee. If you haven’t used creamer in your tea, give it a try! You can add it to hot tea, but it’s also amazing in a glass of cold iced tea—which is my favorite! Add a splash of Organic Valley Sweet Cream Creamer into your iced tea for a cold and creamy refreshing summer drink.
Add Creamer to Cereal, Granola, Oatmeal
Spruce up your morning bowl by adding a splash of either Organic Valley coffee creamer to your morning cereal, oatmeal, or granola for a punch of flavor! Try Organic Valley French Vanilla Creamer with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Overnight Oats by removing 2 tablespoons of Organic Valley Grassmilk®, and replacing it with Organic Valley French Vanilla Creamer.
Use Creamer in a Smoothie
Adding Organic Valley coffee creamers into a smoothie will not only enhance the flavor, but it will also help create a thicker and creamier smoothie. This is a result of the organic cream, as it is a natural thickener! Substitute 2 to 3 tablespoons of Organic Valley Whole Milk for Organic Valley Sweet Cream Creamer in this 4-Ingredient Peanut Butter Smoothie.
Homemade Ice Cream Treat Using Creamer
Make a two-ingredient homemade warm-weather favorite! Grab your favorite ice cream (anything from chocolate to mint chip, vanilla, or strawberry will work!) and add 2 scoops to a mason jar. Add in 2 to 3 tablespoons of Organic Valley French Vanilla Creamer for a punch of sweetness that creates an almost malt-like flavor! Using a spoon, mush and stir it up until you have a thick and creamy consistency that doesn’t fall off your spoon.
Add Creamer to Cookies
Organic Valley creamer can be used in cookies such as my Coffee Creamer Cookies! Organic Valley French Vanilla Creamer adds a sweet burst of flavor that also adds moisture to your cookies. Plus, when you use the French Vanilla Creamer in cookies, you can skip the vanilla extract, making these the perfect cookies to bake when you run out of vanilla.
Use Creamer in Frosting
Most homemade frostings or icings call for milk to help give them that luscious and creamy texture. Replace that milk with Organic Valley French Vanilla Creamer in any frosting recipe. This simple switch makes the frosting extra creamy, and it complements chocolate cake like no other!
Make an Italian Soda Using Creamer
Cool off this summer with a homemade Italian soda. Muddle one strawberry in a glass, then add in your favorite sparkling water and a splash of Organic Valley Sweet Cream Creamer for a cool and refreshing Italian soda. Top it off with Homemade Whipped Cream and a cherry on top!
So, the next time you are craving pancakes or want a thirst-quenching iced tea or smoothie—grab Organic Valley Sweet Cream or French Vanilla Creamer and give your taste buds something to smile about!
