nutpods is a deliciously wholesome, dairy-free creamer made from heart healthy almonds and MCT-rich coconuts with a rich and creamy balanced taste.

We believe that there should be an alternative option for the discerning and informed dairy-free coffee creamer user. Unfortunately, most traditional non-dairy and even natural dairy-free coffee creamers can contain many undesirable and artificial ingredients.  Natural creamers can be thin and watery; not rich and creamy. Unlike the existing options, nutpods is free from the following so you can be free to indulge:
-Sodium Caseinate (a milk protein)
-Artificial flavors, colors and preservatives
-Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils

 For a list of ingredients, please click on the photo of each flavor.


Keep Calm and ENJOY NUTPODS Poster

We did it!

We started our little company with a Kickstarter campaign in October 2013 ( Project Name: nutpods) to bring our much anticipated products to the commercial market. Our goal was to raise $30K to release our first delectable flavor, Unsweetened Original. Well, thanks to the generosity of 510 backers, WE DID IT! We were able to actually surpass our goal by $32,164!  The money raised will go towards converting Madeline's kitchen formula into a full-blown commercial formulation.  Funds will also be used on packaging, production and distribution costs.

Thanks to you, our supporters, we will soon be able to transform nutpods into a bona fide commercial production and make our wholesome and deliciously dairy-free creamy pods available to health-conscious coffee and tea lovers everywhere.

Thank you for your support in giving us the privilege to finally bring a more natural and wholesome option to the market!

Gooey But Happy Memories In The Kitchen

Thanksgiving is such a mother-centric holiday for me. Whether your mom made lumpy mashed potatoes or had an amazing pecan pie, food memories can have an enormous emotional pull for us.

Each Thanksgiving, I remember my mom waking up extra early to get the turkey in the oven.  It was a huge, brined turkey (we were a family of 8!) cooking in this enormous stainless steel mixing bowl (she never got a roasting pan). I think of her own unique stuffing with a Vietnamese flair. And mostly, I just remember her.  She was a wonderful cook, frugal enough to feed us all well and wise enough to include plenty of vegetables, fruit and protein in our regular diet.

My mom passed away before she could meet my husband or my children. And while I wish she could have seen me become a wife, a mother, a business owner, she lives on through the memories I have of her. She gave tirelessly to our family in her time and affections, even when she was tired from her job (or two!). We still knew we were cared for and loved. Now that I'm a mom, I have my own agenda of the memories I want my girls to have.

Emily is nearly five, but she participates in Thanksgiving! Getting kids involved at a young age really helps open up their relationship with food. Emily loves pomegranates because she loves peeling them and she thinks they look like princess gems. And they do!  This year, she helped me with the lattice top of the apple pie and she is a great "mixer" of herbs and butter for the turkey. It's greasy and messy and while she squeals how "gooey" it is, she's happy enough in the kitchen with me with her own apron and that's exactly what I want for her to with us in the kitchen. Even Claire observing the action from her swing!  And that's I want my girls to have...happy (and messy and imperfect) memories in the kitchen with our girls. 

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours,

Madeline & Geoffrey

Interesting, at work, had a customers frbaic delay. Was just thinking should change jobs than might work less.
