My [Food] Adventures: Nutpods Winter Collection

The holidays are here! And you better believe that one of the most popular, plant-based, creamer companies were going to throw their hat in the holiday flavor ring.

Nutpods was dreamed up back in 2013 by founder and CEO, Madeline Haydon, when experiencing the lack of [delicious] non-dairy coffee creamers. Fast forward to 2018 where Nutpods are being shipped worldwide, and being sold in multiple grocery store locations.

All flavors start with a base of almonds and coconut cream, and are not only vegan-friendly but, Non-GMO Project Verified, gluten free, Whole30 approved, and do not contain any carrageenan or added sugar.

Now, if you are like me, you cannot wait for that first holiday drink of the season. I won’t lie, I am that girl who counts the days until my first pumpkin spice latte. Then, once Thanksgiving has passed, I am sipping on peppermint mochas through New Years. However, since I have been trying to limit my sugar intake, and cut back on dairy, I have been in need of an alternative to my beloved holiday cheer in a cup! Enter the Nutpods winter collection…

Peppermint Mocha

With a creamy cocoa flavor and a hint of sweet peppermint, this flavor is a great alternative to the coffee shop holiday favorite. I will say, however, it was the mildest flavor out of the three, which could be good, or bad, depending on how much of the peppermint mocha punch you are hoping for. My advice, “just add more!”…problem solved.

Pumpkin Spice

Break out your fur-lined boots, and over-sized scarves, because this is pumpkin spice! This creamer is filled with all the warm spices you think of when Autumn comes to town, without overpowering the pumpkin flavor. I drank this one both hot, and over ice (since California hasn’t quite gotten the fall memo) and it was perfect both ways!

Dark Chocolate Orange

Chocolate and orange coffee?? I would have never thought to put this combination together, and if I did, I would not have guessed I would have enjoyed it as much as I did! Dark chocolate with a citrus kick, is how I want to describe this flavor. Think back to those round chocolate candies you used to smack on the kitchen counter, around Christmas time, that would break apart in segments, like an orange….Yeah, you’re drinking a cup of that (YUM!) Its simply amazing! What’s even more amazing is that it was my favorite creamer of the three! Yep, move over pumpkin spice, and peppermint mocha, there is a new holiday flavor in town.


These seasonal flavors are available for purchase online only.
