I'm Type A...need to stay away from dairy. I really like my organic decaf, but I don't like to drink my coffee black. I put a packet of stevia in it have been using the powdered non-dairy creamer. But, just read that the first ingredient is corn syrup solids (that is not healthy). So, I'm wondering if any of you have any healthy, tasty alternatives for me! Thanks!

I use either almond milk, or Silk Creamer available in grocery stores.
  Silk brand (even their regular soy milk) or almond milk doesn't curdle.  I found other brands of soy milk "curdle" when I pour them in coffee.

You can use a compliant milk, soy, almond, rice, and you can sweeten with maple syrup. This is very good and you can try this at restaraunts to. They always have maple syrup. The milk part could be difficult.

I like the soy creamers but they do have avoids.

Unfortunately, Silk brands have carageenan (an avoid) and I've found that I'm really sensitive to that (sneezing).  I noticed that if there is no sugar in the soy milk that there is no carageenan - so you could check that.

Have you tried nut milks with honey?  I really like almond and honey in my coffee.

Hmm.I didn't know about the carageenan. Ahhhh! I just checked the creamer..has a lot of junk in it.  I usually use the unsweetened
Silk. I'll have to check it out. Is Cargeenan still an avoid on the GTD?  The almond milk is pretty good. I haven't tried maple syrup yet...that sounds interesting.

Having recently been re-allowed coffee and black tea, I'm back in the market for a creamer that I can use. Thanks for the discussion, kids.

Agave? I've never tried it.  It's neutral and it has the lowest glycemic load. I wonder how it would taste in coffee..thirst quencher of the gods...

agave is also very good on oatmeal, rice cakes, or on toast...never tried in coffee (yet).

i agree with Lisalea, honey! Rice syrup is also very good - not too sweety. I like these in roasted dandelion-coffee or cocoa.
