Get Real. Get La Crème.


This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and La Crème.



One of my favorite yogurt products is La Crème. Have you tried it? So rich and creamy, you won't want to go back to eating "regular" yogurt. Seriously. This post isn't about yogurt, though. It's about coffee creamer. When the folks at La Crème asked me if I wanted to try their new coffee creamer, I jumped right on board. I figured if their yogurt was so good, their creamer had to be, too. Deemed unapologetically rich and creamy, La Crème is made with 100% real dairy and currently comes in four all-natural flavors: French Vanilla, Original, Hazelnut and Cinnamon Vanilla. Naturally flavored La Crème Real Dairy Creamers are a welcomed alternative to artificially flavored non-dairy creamers.


They are lactose free, rBST Free, with no trans fats, no partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (did you know that Coffee-mate® is hydrogenated coconut oil and not really dairy?!), and no high-fructose corn syrup. I really had no idea that most coffee creamers aren't really dairy. I always knew that the non-refrigerated ones weren't dairy (since they can sit out at room temperature), but I just assumed that the other coffee creamers out there were dairy because they had to be refrigerated. So, I went and pulled our (store brand) coffee creamer out of the refrigerator and checked the label and sure enough - it's just partially hydrogenated soybean oil and cottonseed oil (trans fats)!



Both my husband and I tried the La Crème cinnamon vanilla flavor creamer and agreed that it is rich and creamy, exactly how coffee creamer should be. When I found out that cool whip is really hydrogenated vegetable oil and not dairy, I stopped eating it. Now that I know that all of these other non-dairy coffee creamers are just partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, we're going to switch to La Crème. It just seems like the natural choice. There are many other disturbing facts about non-dairy creamers that make me want to make the switch. To learn more, visit the La Crème site.

  32. I love homemade ice cream! I had a recipe of my mom's that I've used for years and it was amazing, but used raw eggs. Recently I hosted an engagement party for my son and his fiance, featuring an ice cream sundae bar. I knew I wanted the ice cream to be homemade, but I did not want to serve "raw egg" ice cream to 80 people - even though the eggs are from our very own hens! My sis-in-law just happened to give me her award-winning 4-H recipe and I couldn't believe it but it was the exact same recipe as my mom's, minus the eggs! I tried it and the family went nuts over it! It seriously reminds us of the Sweet Cream flavor at Cold Stone! It's got the taste of cream, a whiter color and it doesn't freeze as hard as the recipe with eggs! It was a huge hit at our party! I love it...simple and delicious!

  109. Thanks for this post - I am going to have to try this product! I used to just put skim milk in my coffee, but when I did Atkins I had to cut out milk and switch to real cream and got hooked. But then when I stopped Atkins I didn't want all those calories so I've been experimenting wit various sugar-free creamers...but it tastes artificial...so this may be just what I've been looking for!

    Oh - and my favorite dairy product? CHEESE!!!
    Thanks for the giveaway :)

  168. Since I'm lactose-intolerant, I love Lactaid milk! Although I can't help myself-- I love cottage cheese and peanut butter!

    My husband likes half and half but I always liked the flavored stuff. So happy to know this is "real" versus what I found out I had been consuming. Will definitely be using Le Creme instead of those "others" now.

  170. I really like ice cream but my favorite dairy product would have to be the cream I put in my coffee in the morning. I use half n' half but I'm going to try this La Creme Real Dairy Creamer.
