Vegan Oat Milk Coffee Creamer
My morning cup of coffee + this Vegan Oat Milk Coffee Creamer are just about as perfect as can be. It’s the little things, right? If you like your coffee rich, creamy and flavourful yet dairy-free, you need to try this quick and easy, healthy vegan coffee creamer.
No Soaking Required
What I love about this creamer is you don’t need to soak almonds or cashews for hours to make it, you only need a few minutes for your oats and you’re all set! I’ve actually made this with hemp seeds too, which is also most delicious.
Store-bought dairy-free coffee creamers are ok in a pinch but they’re also filled with ingredients you could definitely do without. This version only has a few simple ingredients, and you could even go sugar-free by omitting the maple syrup.
This dairy-free creamer pairs perfectly with your favourite coffee. It’s so easy to make, it only takes about 10 minutes total to make, no need to soak any nuts! It’s also an inexpensive option to store-bought dairy-free coffee creamer.
You can also try my homemade oat milk, homemade almond milk or vegan bulletproof coffee as an alternative to this creamer.Print

If you like your coffee rich, creamy and flavourful yet dairy-free, you need to try this quick and easy, healthy vegan coffee creamer.
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 1/4 cup water
- 1–2 tbsp maple syrup or agave, 3-4 pitted dates or another sweetener of choice, to taste
- 1–2 tsp pure vanilla extract, to taste
- Place the oats and water in a blender.
- Blend for 30 seconds until smooth and creamy.
- Strain the liquid through a nut milk bag and back into the blender, then add the maple syrup and vanilla and blend for a few more seconds.
- Store in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Cheesecloth, a fine-mesh sieve, or even an old t-shirt work if you don’t have a nut milk bag.
Don’t over blend the oats or the resulting creamer will be slimy. 30 seconds should be plenty!

What’s your opinion if someone wanted to cut back on the calories? Would using something like regular Splenda/Equal (preferably granular as that’s what I have but I know there’s liquid too) or another zero calorie sweetener work? (Actually I think I have a liquid zero calorie sweetener that has a caramel flavor). I can’t imagine why it wouldn’t, or is the more viscous sweetener kind of helpful for the texture to not be watery? I’ll probably still test it but want an opinion on it first haha I find I really like oat milk but since I make even drip coffee with more cream and sugar than actual bean juice I want to try to cut back on any extra calories I can. I imagine possibly just cutting out the sweetener wouldn’t hurt since I add like 3 tablespoons of white chocolate sauce half the time anyway but you get my point.
You can leave the sweetener out or use any sugar-free sweetener you prefer. Thanks!
Used vitamix, pushed through fine bag, tastes like oat water. It doesn’t curdle, which is good, but it doesn’t stay mixed in the coffee either, it sinks to the bottom of the cup. I’ll try a recipe where the oats are soaked overnight next.
Did you follow the exact amounts? I actually wouldn’t recommend soaking rolled oats for this recipe or it will come out slimy. If you’re using steel-cut or whole oat groats, you can soak for a couple hours then rinse well to help with blending…but in a Vitamix it’s not really necessary.
I’m going to try this as I’m needing to get off the commercial creamers. The waste and cost are ridiculous! What do you do with the left over oats? Can you use them for cooking or overnight oats?
Sounds delish. Can you freeze it?
I’m not too sure, to be honest! I’ve never tried freezing oat milk or oat creamer. It couldn’t hurt to try a small portion though.
I made this with cashew milk instead of water and wow it turned out so thick and creamy! Very oaty/nutty tasting, but it made my coffee taste like an oatmeal cookie 🙂
That’s awesome! It sounds ammmazing with cashews!
This is really better if you soak the oats for a few hours then rinse before blending.
I would like to make this savoury, so can you advise as I would like to make a creamy vegan oat sauce from scratch..I want to make a pasta dish with it please. I would be ever so grateful…
Thank you so much…great site by the way…
Just omit the maple syrup and vanilla, that’s it! 🙂 Good luck!
What temperature should the water be? Warm, hot, cool, room?
The water temperature is not particularly important but warm or room temp. is fine! Thanks. 🙂
There isn’t much you can do with coffee to enhance the flavor so I am okay with trying a different method to making the coffee taste better. I love having creamer in it because it needs that. Black coffee is too strong for me. I like to drink the coffee for enjoyment. Is it okay that I share this recipe with others?
This non-dairy vegan creamer is GENIUS! I cannot wait to try this one.
Thanks so much for sharing.
I’ve never heard of using oats! This creamer sounds ah-mazing and I ALWAYS have tubs of oats in the house so I’m definitely going to give this one a go, maybe even tomorrow!
I always make oat milk for my smoothies, but I never thought of making it for a creamer! It sounds fantastic!
