This isn’t the typical creamer found on supermarket store shelves, but at specialty healthfood stores aimed at helping you live your best life.
Laird Superfood Creamer Cacao
The Benefits of the Ingredients
The benefits of the ingredients found in Laird Superfood Creamer Cacao are numerous. From the heart health effects to the energy boost you will gain; there’s a reason super is in its name. The five ingredients include coconut milk powder, organic coconut sugar, organic cacao powder, Aquamin, and organic extra virgin coconut oil. Each of these key ingredients provides your body with nutritional advantages.
Coconut Milk PowderCoconut milk powder should be a staple in everyone’s pantry. It is rich in lauric acid, which is a kicker for your immune system with both anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Did you know it is even found in human breastmilk? Nature recognizes how great it is for the immune system. Coconut milk powder is used for dry applications but combined with water is used for flavoring in a multitude of other uses.
Where to Buy Coconut Milk PowderCoconut milk powder is an all-natural ingredient and can be found in nature health food stores, in person and online. It will make the perfect base for your ice cream, sauce, smoothie, shake, and of course, it is one of the key ingredients in Laird Superfood Creamer.
Organic Coconut SugarThe next key ingredient on the list is organic coconut sugar, created from the nectar of coconut palm tree blossoms. Compared to table sugar with sucrose of 65, organic coconut sugar is low on the glycemic index at just 35 and contains only about 75 percent sucrose. Organic coconut sugar also contains healthy fats, which have been known to prevent high cholesterol and heart disease.
Where to Buy Organic Coconut SugarYou’ll definitely want to be on the lookout for organic coconut sugar as it is an alternative sweetener to chemical products, but not all organic coconut sugar is the same. It can be found in health food stores and comes in granule, block or liquid form, and there is a difference between organic coconut sugar and organic coconut palm sugar, so be careful in your selection. Palm sugar will provide more of a smokey taste, while organic coconut sugar will give off a similar flavor to brown sugar.
Organic Cacao PowderOrganic cacao powder should not be mistaken for cocoa powder, although there are similarities. It comes with a slew of health benefits, including lowered risk for diabetes, heart disease, lowered blood pressure and inflammation, and even aides in digestion. It is packed full of nutrients like iron, potassium, and fiber, just to name a few.
What is Organic Cacao Powder?What is organic cacao powder? Is it chocolate? Not exactly. They are comparable, but not the same. Cacao trees were originally domesticated in South America around 5,000 years ago. The beans from the trees are used to make both cocoa powder and cacao powder. Unlike cocoa powder, which is processed at very high temperatures, cacao beans made for cacao powder are processed at low temperatures, retaining the beans’ original nutritional value and therefore making it a healthier alternative to cocoa powder.
Aquamin (Calcium from Marine Algae)Seaweed derived from the ocean is known to be rich in calcium and minerals, particularly if it is green algae. Aquamin is a prime example. With its high nutritional value, it supports the gut, reduces inflammation, boosts the immune system and improves overall health.
What is Aquamin?Aquamin comes from the North Atlantic and is provided to us by nature. It is obtained from the red algae Lithothamnion corallioides and is a multi-mineral supplement. Not only is it plentiful in calcium, but also magnesium, and contains zinc, selenium and manganese. In fact, 72 trace minerals are absorbed from the sea making the calcium in Aquamin more bioactive than calcium found in limetone.
Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
Rounding out the list of ingredients in Laird’s Superfood Creamer is organic extra virgin coconut oil. Coconut oil is a plant-based oil made from the meat, wick and milk of the coconut palm fruit. Organic extra virgin coconut oil has anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. It also differentiates itself from other dietary oils in that it is medium-chain fatty acids, meaning its fatty acids are made of six to 12 carbon atoms instead of 12 found in other long-chain fatty acids. What does this matter? It is the difference in how the oil is digested by your body. It may also help protect your hair and be used in the treatment of some skin conditions.
Laird Superfood Pumpkin Spice Creamer
The Laird Superfood Pumpkin Spice Creamer provides all the pumpkin, fall vibes you crave with all the health benefits your body needs. It comes with plant-based, nourishing ingredients for the perfect pumpkin spice addition to your coffee, tea or smoothie.
Benefits of These Ingredients

Coconut Milk PowderCoconut milk powder is a superfood containing electrolytes, minerals, and fatty acids. It is, simply, coconut milk that has been dried to make it last longer and be more adaptable. Coconut milk powder is a wonderful choice to make in replacement of dairy milk because of its nutritional properties and delivers health benefits from heart health to great skin.
What is the Best Coconut Milk?When choosing coconut milk, it is important to try to always select organic when possible. Be on the lookout for the USDA seal or read through the ingredient label. Also, avoid coconut milk options with added sugar or sweeteners like vanilla. Coconut milk is created by grating the white inner flesh of coconuts, mixing the pulp with hot water, and pressing the liquid through a cheesecloth. This makes a rich, fatty liquid known as coconut cream. It can be pressed again to make coconut milk.
Meanwhile, coconut powder is simply evaporated coconut milk. The best coconut milk simply depends on preference, but coconut milk powder is more versatile and has a longer shelf life.
Organic Coconut SugarIf you’re on the lookout for a pumpkin creamer that will keep both your energy and blood glucose levels up, the Laird Superfood Pumpkin Spice Creamer is it. This is because one of its key ingredients is organic coconut sugar, which has both benefits, as well as lower chances of a blood sugar spike.
Who Makes Organic Coconut Sugar for Great Value?Many believe coconut sugar comes from a coconut itself, but this is not the case. It actually is derived from the coconut palm tree. Harvesters tap coconut palm sap by cutting into the tree’s flower-bud stem to get to the nectar.
The sap is then combined with water, and it is boiled. This creates a syrup, and it is dried, which causes it to crystallize. Lastly, it is broken apart into sugar granules. It is a long and tedious process, but that doesn’t mean organic coconut sugar cannot be found for great value. Many supermarkets and health food stores carry the sugar that won’t break the budget, as well as online stores that can ship your product directly to your doorstep.
Organic Pumpkin Spice BlendThe Laird Superfood Pumpkin Spice Creamer provides a taste of fall without the guilty conscious with its organic pumpkin spice blend. It is a mix that is rich, warm and delightful and will delight your tastebuds as you sip on your morning coffee or tea.
How to Make Pumpkin SpiceCreating a pumpkin spice blend all on your own isn’t as tricky as it sounds. It just requires mixing a few key ingredients to have them blend into the perfect opulent combination. It is important to use organic ingredients, but simply combine a tablespoon of ground cinnamon with a teaspoon each of ground ginger, cloves and nutmeg to get your very own pumpkin spice blend.
What is Pumpkin Spice?Pumpkin spice has swept the country in popularity in recent years for its aromatic blend of cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg. Also known as pumpkin pie spice, it can be found in creamers, coffees, pancakes, candles, beers, and a variety of other products as it takes over as fall’s favorite flavor.
Pumpkin PowderAdding to the delicious pumpkin flavoring in the Laird Superfood Pumpkin Spice Creamer is the pumpkin powder. It is made from a ripe, dehydrated pumpkin, and contains plenty of vitamins that will have your skin looking its very best, including omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin E and carotenoids.

It can also be utilized as a replacement for canned or even fresh pumpkin in recipes. Simply mix it with water. It even serves as a sweeter in drinks.
Aquamin(Calcium from Marine Algae)Aquamin is one of the most unique ingredients included in this list. It is derived out of seaweed, which absorbs calcium, magnesium, and a whopping 72 other trace marine minerals from the surrounding seawater. Combined with its distinctive honeycomb structure, this makes for a product packed full of minerals easily absorbed by your body.
