My Swami has pretty much ruled out most milk products including half & half.  Also, Soy and Almond milks are avoids for me.  I’m hoping someone else has tackled this same issue with a half & half alternative for coffee (I’m still not ready to give up my morning pure dark nectar--ha).  

I have a feeling that the answer will be to drink it black or not at all.  But in the meantime, I think there are some very smart people here who have found a work-around

Hemp, Oat, and Rice milk are out there. I dont' know what the thickener would be except to add the purest lightest oil you're given to form a balanced tastes.

How about cream?

Half-and-Half is cream plus whole milk.
If you can't have the milk, might you try just the cream? If you want to dilute it, you can use water.

Amazone.  I know I should avoid it, but I LOVE coffee so I’m willing to suffer the affects.  

Sefarra, I may have to experiment with the thickener, but honestly, I would probably do better just eliminating the cream all together than introducing the flavors of oil to my coffee... HA!  Maybe flaxseed oil would be best.

When I found I was a Non-Secreter, the Swami kicked over Almond Milk to the neutral (it was an avoid before).  I’ve been using Rice milk (Superfood) for stuff, but it is so low on nutrition that I don’t see the point.

Cream is an avoid as is Coconut Milk.

Anywho, thanks for the responses.  One milk on my Superfood list is Goat Milk.  I may have to get past the mental challenge with that one as I’ve never had it and have a negative idea about it.  Does it taste like goat cheese?  .

btw..-who says that there might be any negative side effect for you if not being an
explorere'?) ... no doubt... if you don't show any reactions on it.. I wouldn't avoid it either ... and then it depends of the amounts...etc... coz it seems also to have benefits onto our brain as well  .........

I stir a small spoonful of ghee into my "mocha mate" (yerba mate brewed with cocoa powder.). It doesn't have the exact same flavor or texture as cream (cream is tastier!)  but it imparts a rich, creamy feel to the whole beverage.

Is ghee allowed on your SWAMI? It's often a "beneficial" or "diamond" even when other dairy products are "avoids."

Interesting outside-the-box thinking, rg!
Are you familiar with the Tibetans' Yak Butter tea? Sorta the same concept, except the yak butter actually IS the "tea".  
(would love to try some of this, myself. But even most Tibetans today -and I've met quite a few- have never tasted this age-old traditional beverage.)

Yes, I've heard of it, and I'm sure I've read at least one fiction novel where the characters were drinking "butter tea" in cold weather. That may have been what gave me the idea.

ruthiegirl I think you just blew my mind...HA!  I have so much to learn and explore.  I know the Ghee is a diamond on my SWAMI but I’ve never thought of using it.  I guess I’ll give it a shot, but first I’ll have to find it!
