Get FUELED with Molly | Plant-Based Half & Half

Get FUELED

Whether you’re looking to dial back on animal-based saturated fat or simply incorporate more plant-based alternatives, making the swap from traditional half & half to plant-based half & half can trim 2 grams saturated fat from every ounce.

We picked up 8 different plant-based half & half options on store shelves that all have a clean label with no sugar added – all of the stuff we do want, and none of the stuff we don’t want.  Texture and flavor vary wildly, though, so below is Molly’s ranking of each, based on our informal taste test with real-world coffee lovers!

Traditional Dairy Half & Half:  2 tablespoons provides 40 calories, 3 grams fat, 2 grams sat fat, 1 gram carb
