Nature’s Dairy-Free Creamer Nutpods Review

Ever since I was a little girl and as long as I can remember, I have been intolerant to dairy. Participating in birthday celebrations with ice cream cones has sadly never been a fond memory for me, since I always pouted in the corner unable to dunk my face in the cream with the other kids.

Fast forward a few decades, it’s automatic that I’m on the hunt for dairy-free creamer options as this busy mom loves to cook. It’s a tough world sometimes being dairy-free hmpfff…BUTTTT here’s an amazing solution that I came across called Nature’s Dairy-Free Creamer Nutpods! In a nutshell (no pun intended), the founder Madeline Haydon grew tired of the few grocery store options out there and decided to create her own line free from titanium dioxide, mono and diglycerides, and hydrogenated/partially hydrogenated oils. 

This dairy-free alternative is conveniently vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO. The first thing that caught my eye and stood out was the packaging. Why? Because most almond milks or creamers come in these huge containers, and nutpods are the perfect size  (11.2 fl oz) for on the go. What I immediately thought of was this is the perfect size to place in your work fridge without everyone accusing you of hogging up all the space. Perfect idea for traveling too as it doesn’t need refrigeration until you open it!

What are some other good things about the nutpods? Amazingly they are also FREE from: Carrageenan, Dairy, Soy, Gluten, High-Fructose Corn Syrup, Refined Sugars & Sugar Alcohols, and Artificial Flavors. Basically, made without all the extra stuff that’s on the shelves these days. Doesn’t this sound exciting?

Additionally, these tasty nutpods are made from almonds and coconuts which combines a unique awesome blend of goodness. Each of the flavors provide a creamy texture that’s not too thick or thin.

Do they have a variety? Yes! nutpods come in a variety of flavors and you can do all sorts of things with them!

What can you do with them you ask? Well….for starters, how about pouring some HazelNut Creamer in your coffee, or using the tasty French Vanilla flavor in homemade ice cream?

They also have an Original Flavor which is my favorite because I can make all sorts of things with it. I can add the original flavor to my gluten-free oatmeal, cereal, smoothies, overnight oats or chia pudding, baking recipes (green bean casserole, pies, cakes and even cook with it too!)…there are endless cooking options like soups, mashed potatoes, or pasta sauce! I actually created a pasta recipe at the bottom of this post using the original nutpod flavor if you keep scrolling.

Another neat fact about this brand is that they were initially funded with Kickstarter, how cool is that?! So happy to see independent brands with a great concept make it in this world so that you and I can enjoy the yumminess life has to offer!
