Almond Milk:  Any unsweetened non-dairy milk can be used.  Coconut and cashew milk is a favorite in our house for a creamy texture.

Maple Syrup: Honey or agave can be used in place of maple syrup.

Cocoa Powder:  This can be omitted.

Vanilla Extract: Vanilla beans or vanilla bean paste can be used.


Fun Fact! 

Like I said, this creamer was made with Irish Cream (think Bailey’s) in mind.The popular Baileys Irish Cream was named after a restaurant in London and named by the same person responsible for the Kerrygold Butter campaign.  The secret to Bailey’s rich flavor is Cadbury Drinking Chocolate powder.  All of the cream for Bailey’s comes from Irish cows that produce more than 220 million liters of milk just for Bailey’s Cream.  (Source

    Love this creamer! Had all the ingredients on hand so it was a breeze to make. I blended it together for an iced coffee. Will for sure make again 🙂
