Losing weight doesn’t mean you have to give up your coffee. But loading your daily cup with sugary, high-fat creamers can sabotage your Weight Watchers progress. The good news is that plenty of lighter, healthier creamer options allow you to enjoy your coffee just as you like it within your Weight Watchers Points budget.
WHAT IS Weight Watchers?
When starting a new weight loss program or diet change, consult a doctor or physician about personal health concerns. It is a good idea to have blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and hormones checked at a physical before and during being on the WW program.
New to Weight Watchers?? Also known as WW, a weight loss program uses points assigned to food to track and lose weight. When you sign up, you take an assessment that will assign you a point value to eat daily and a weekly allowance. You can carry over 4 points from the day into your weekly budget, which is handy when you need more points.
I have been on Weight Watchers since 2011. They have had Points Plus Value, WW Smartpoints, Blue Plan, Green Plan, Purple Plan, WW Personal Points, and now Weight Watchers Points. The new Weight Watchers Simplified plan is the new program launched in November 2022, similar to previous plans like WW Smartpoints, with some color plans. ( You can see the Weight Watchers Zero Point Foods 2023 -> here)
No matter the WW plan, they work to help you learn healthy eating habits. I have hit lifetime goal weight several times but stopped operating the plan and tracking, so the weight does creep back on.
Right now, you can head on over -> here and sign up for WW for $10 a month for your first six months.
The Best Creamers for Weight Watchers
When choosing a creamer on Weight Watchers, you want options low in sugar, fat, and calories to keep the Points down. But they still need to give you the creamy, decadent taste and texture you love in your coffee. Here are the best picks:
Nutpods Dairy-Free Creamer
Nutpods provide the richness of half & half with 0 points per serving. It’s made from a blend of almonds and coconut, unsweetened, and dairy-free. Try flavors like hazelnut toasted marshmallow, vanilla almond, or pumpkin spice. Prefer oat milk? There are options for that, too, try brown sugar oat or cinnamon swirl oat, also for ZERO points! You can find Nutpods at Amazon and Walmart.
Califia Farms Better Half
At just 1 Point per serving for most flavors (or grab pumpkin spice for zero points), Califia Farms Better Half gives you all the creaminess of half and half by blending coconut and almond milk. It’s naturally low in sugar and saturated fat. You can find Califia Farms Better Half on Amazon or at Walmart.
Chobani Oat Coffee Creamers
With only 1 Point, Chobani’s creamers are a smart choice. They’re made with real oat milk and contain less sugar than many competitors. Flavor options include plain or vanilla. You can buy Chobani’s creamers on Amazon or at Walmart.
Silk Dairy-Free Creamer
Silk makes dairy-free nut and oat milk creamers in flavors like vanilla and hazelnut. They contain 0-2 Points depending on variety and portion size. Soy is another great dairy-free option. You can buy Silk Dairy-Free Creamer creamers on Amazon or at Walmart.
Laird Superfood Original and Unsweetened Creamers
Based on nutrient-dense coconut milk, Laird Superfood Creamers earn rave reviews for their ultra-rich texture. The unsweetened has 0 Points, while the original has 3 per serving. You can buy Silk Dairy-Free Creamer creamers on Amazon or at Walmart.
Natural Bliss Liquid Coffee Creamer
Natural Bliss by Coffee Mate is made with real milk and cream and contains 25-40% less fat and sugar than the original Coffee Mate. A 1-tablespoon serving is just 2 Points. You can buy Silk Dairy-Free Creamer creamers at Walmart.
Tips to Lighten Up Your Coffee Creamer
If you want to save Points without sacrificing taste, try these easy tips:
- Use Protein Shakes– I like to use Pure Protein (also at Walmart) for one point or Premier Protein for three points.
- Use less creamer – Start with one tablespoon per cup of coffee and add more to taste. You’ll be surprised how little you need.
- Try half & half – Using half & half instead of heavy cream can slash Points since it’s lower in fat and calories.
- Mix in some milk – Cut your creamer with a low-fat or nonfat milk splash to reduce points. For flavoring, use a skinny girl syrup with zero sugar.
- Heat it – Warm creamer more easily incorporates into hot coffee, so you can use less.
- Boost flavor naturally – Stir in cinnamon, cocoa powder, vanilla, etc., so less sweet creamer tastes satisfying.
Tasty Homemade Creamers
Whip up one of these easy DIY creamers to control ingredients and points:
- Vanilla creamer – Blend 1 cup fat-free milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 tablespoon stevia.
- Orange cream – Mix 1 cup fat free milk, 3 tbsp orange juice concentrate, and 1/2 teaspoon orange zest.
- Pumpkin pie – Combine 1 cup fat free milk, 1/4 cup pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and sweetener.
- Chai tea – Steep chai tea bags in warmed fat free milk, then mix in a dash of cinnamon.
- Peppermint mocha – Heat 1 cup fat free milk with cocoa powder, mint extract, and sweetener.
- Toasted coconut – Simmer 1 cup coconut milk with toasted shredded coconut, then blend.
