Soy Coffee Creamer Recipe

If you prefer soy milk, then this clean eating soy coffee creamer could be the perfect way to make your morning cup of coffee much, much creamier.

It’s funny how many folks are dependent on their coffee creamer. Personally, I never liked them because they were too sweet and I could taste all the artificial ingredients. Plus, I don’t like my coffee sweet. I’m strictly a “milk or cream in my coffee” kinda girl.

Clean Eating Soy Coffee Creamer

Now that I’ve tried this recipe, I have to say that sweet is a good thing. I wouldn’t want this in my coffee without a little sweetness to it. And the fun part is, you can totally play around with the flavors by choosing the extract you prefer!

Just be aware that soy is one of the biggest GMO crops on the planet. So buy the stuff that is certified by the Non-GMO Project if that matters to you.

NOTE: If you can’t get any xanthan gum or don’t enjoy the texture it provides, try this recipe for Clean Eating Condensed Milk. It’s sweet and it makes a fabulous creamer!

  • 1 ¼ cup soy milk (organic, unsweetened and plain at room temperature)
  • 3 tsp. pure vanilla extract (I used bourbon vanilla)
  • ½ tsp. extract (optional – this is where you can play with the flavors I used almond extract.)
  • 2 tbsp. honey (or stevia to taste)
  • 1/16 tsp. xanthan gum (optional – for texture/thickness)


  • In a blender, blend together the soy milk and xanthan gum until well combined.
  • Blend in the extracts and honey.
  • Pour into a glass storage container and store in the fridge.
  • POSSIBLE EXTRACTS: raspberry extract, almond extract, orange extract, rum extract or extra vanilla extract.
  • Note: I’m partial to strong flavors. So you may want to start with a smaller amount of extracts and add to taste.

    Lovely combos for coffee lovers. Would love to try out the soy milk recipe.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Sanjeeta – I love the almond best! Hope you enjoy it!

  2. Where do you find xanthan gum? I’ve seen it in the ingredient list of foods, but I’ve never seen it sold by itself.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Linda – Most health food stores will carry it. You get a small amount for a rather high price, but keep in mind that when you use Xanthan gum, you are using VERY small amounts. (1/8 – 1/4 tsp. in many cases.) That one small package will last you a very long time.

  3. Tara Ryba says:

    This may be a crazy question but I thought soy milk wasn’t “clean”???

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Tara – It depends on the brand you buy. I purchase a brand that is organic and unsweetened. It’s clean, but many are not. So be sure to read labels.

  4. I have to say “No thanks” to this one. The only thing I like in my coffee is . . . . . coffee. No milk, no creamer, absolutely no sweetener and definitely no flavorings.
    Back in the day when I used to dunk donuts in coffee I had to have a separate cup to drink, can’t force myself to swallow sweet coffee.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jodi – Wow! I can’t even imagine drinking coffee black. It’s just to acidic for me. But to each his own I suppose!

  5. I don’t drink coffee (I’m all about tea, herbal tisanes and chai!), but I know my local Kroger grocery store has xanthin gum (powdered) in the natural/health food area with the baking products. I’ve also seen it (sometimes) on the baking aisle of Albertson’s grocery store. It’s especially helpful in gluten-free and vegan (as in, no eggs, milk or honey) baking.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Charlena – Great to know you can get it in mainstream stores! Thanks! (This recipe could also be good in tea if it was the right flavor combo…)

  6. Tami@nutmegnotebook says:

    What a great idea! I tend to not like flavored creamer, just plain creamer or vanilla for a dessert coffee. You are right most of them have high fructose corn syrup in them and are too sweet!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Tami – Thanks! You could certainly make this with just vanilla. Yum!

  7. I’m with Jodi — black coffee or nothing for me! But I think I’ll try this for my husband.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Molly – I think black coffee has a small but very dedicated following. Personally, I could never do it. My poor tummy would just be ripped to shreds. I need something to tame the acid. But congrats for being able to drink it black! I’m impressed!

  8. I am a creamer junkie! I’ve been looking for a clean alternative! This is great, can’t wait to try it!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Chantel – Fabulous! Glad I could help out!

  9. I just bought conventional coffee creamer for my husband last night and cringe at the idea of what all is in it. Thanks so much for this! How long do you suppose it would last in the fridge? As long as the expiration date on the milk maybe?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Dakota – I would imagine so. To be honest, it didn’t last long enough around here for me to figure that out. I would say 1-2 weeks. At that point, smell before using…

  10. A Taste of Tangy says:

    It sounds good! I’ve started using coconut milk in my coffee. It is so nice and creamy and, along with the cocoa and stevia I put in it, it reminds me of a Mounds Bar 🙂

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Tangy – Wow! Sounds heavenly! Thanks for sharing the idea. I’m sure many here will use it!

  11. Tiffany- I know you’re a loyal TJ’s fan, they have low acid French Roast coffee if you’re interested. I switched to black coffee years ago to cut hidden calories out of my diet and have really learned to appreciate the subtleties of darker roasts. It’s almost like enjoying a very dark chocolate. Still might try this recipe though, it looks great!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Brent – Thanks for the suggestion! The real reason I’ve cut coffee out of my diet is that the caffeine is brutal on my blood sugar. But for the occasional treat, I’ll give it a try. Thanks!

  12. This is ah-ma-zing! I love the strong flavors as well so I followed the recipe as posted and I wouldn’t change a thing! The almond is my favorite, as well. This might be a stupid question (I am new to clean eating), but is organic half n half not clean? Could you do the same with it? And btw, you have been a great inspiration to me as I (gradually) change my family to a clean eating lifestyle – thank you so much for making it 100 times easier!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      McCaa – Wonderful! So happy you enjoyed it!

      To answer your questions, half n half is too high in fat to be a part of a clean eating diet.

      So happy you’re enjoying my site! Take care.

  13. Thank you is really not strong enough! I have been trying everything. This is really great! Xanthan Gum! Genius.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kat – I’m so happy you enjoyed it! Cheers!

  14. What can I use instead of Xanthan Gum? Can I leave it out?

    I just started the eat clean diet.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Colleen – The Xanthan Gum is simply a thickener. You can leave it out completely, or you can try a little cornstarch or tapioca starch. But you may have to adjust the measurement on that as Xanthan gum is about 10 times as strong in the thickening department.

  15. OMG so I just made this with unsweetened almond milk and vanilla…it taste like coffee-mate’s sweet cream flavor. I also left out the Xanthan gum and used my whip attachment on my bullet and it thickened it. I can’t wait to try this tomorrow morning!

    Can I post this on my blog (with your web site attached of course)

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Colleen – I replied via email. Thanks.

  16. Once you blend this and then store it in the fridge, does it stay ‘blended’ and thick? Or do you have to shake it up or reblend it every time you use it?
    Thanks so much for this! My one ‘un-clean’ must have is my coffee with Half & Half & Splenda every morning. I’ve tried alternatives and just don’t like anything out there. I’ve been looking for something to replace the half & half – I’m going to try this and see if it will work for me.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kimber – Shaking it might be a good idea, but you don’t have to re blend it.

  17. wow! I am so excited to try this! I have just started clean eating also and can drink black coffee with agave nectar but just can’t do it completely black! I am going to try this! how exciting! someone put that there is powdered Xanthum? would you suggest that or the one from the whole food store? wow…I think I’m gonna follow your blog! I am also a full time mom, but a part time student going for nursing. nice to know I’m not alone! lol! have a wonderful day!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Denita – Welcome! Yes, the recipe calls for Xanthan gum. You can also use guar gum. But stay tuned because I have a recipe for Clean Eating Condensed Milk coming up tomorrow that can also be used as creamer (minus the xanthan gum). Enjoy!

  18. I’m curious about trying this with coconut milk. There’s a coconut creamer (not clean) out there that I have enjoyed in the past. Lately, I have been trying to drink my coffee black since creamers are so full of chemicals. It’s not going so well. This just could be the answer! I plan to make this today and have high hopes for tomorrow morning’s cup o’ joe!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Tami – I bet it would work just fine. Only, I would leave out the xanthan gum because the coconut milk is creamy enough. Enjoy!

  19. ChellBellz says:

    I had no idea that xanthan gum was clean, what exactly does it do to the creamer?

    1. Anonymous says:

      Chell – It’s a thickener. But if you use too much, it also provides a very slimy/slippery texture. A little goes a looooong way!
