Homemade coffee creamer
I have a super easy and super yummy Homemade Coffee Creamer recipe for you to try. Personally, my favorite flavor is French Vanilla, so this is the flavor I chose to make this time.
If you prefer a different flavor, be sure to read all the way through this post. I list a variety of other flavor options at the end. There is something for everyone!
Let’s get started!
Ingredients you need for homemade coffee creamer:
- Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Milk (or any variety) We used almond milk.
- Flavoring of Your Choice
That is it. Only 3 ingredients! The bonus? You probably have these items sitting in your fridge or pantry right now.
It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
How do you make a good coffee creamer?
It is so simple and you will love it!
Start by whisking together all the ingredients in a large bowl. That is it!
Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator. The creamer will last until the expiration on the milk that you used to make it.
In my honest opinion, this is the BEST homemade coffee creamer recipe.
Everyone loved this homemade coffee creamer recipe!
Honestly, I tried making it a few different ways. I used regular milk (it was ok, just not as rich and creamy as with the Almond Milk).
We have also tried making this with coconut milk. I did NOT like it this way, but I had never had coconut milk before.
If this is something you use regularly, you might like that option. Feel free to experiment to find what you prefer the best.
The Cost – is homemade coffee creamer recipe cheaper?
If you’re wondering why you should make your own instead of just purchasing it at the store, let’s have a look at the cost breakdown.
Liquid Coffee Creamer costs about $2 each on sale. Sometimes we can find a coupon for about $0.50 off, so we might be able to get a 16 ounce bottle of liquid coffee creamer for about $1.50 – that comes to $0.09 per ounce.
Here is the cost if you make it yourself:
Sweetened Condensed Milk, 14 oz can – $1.29 (bought generic brand at Aldi) = $0.09 per ounce
Hiland Almond Milk, 1/2 Gallon – $1.50 (after coupon) = $0.02 per ounce
That is only $0.06 per ounce or just $0.88 for the equivalent of an 16 oz bottle! Now that’s a nice savings for not having to shop the sales or use coupons! (Don’t forget, we can get Sweetened Condensed milk for cheap around the holidays.)
Different Flavor Options
French Vanilla is my flavor of choice, but there are a variety of other flavors that are very easy to add. What
1-2 tablespoons Almond Extract (in place of vanilla)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1-2 tablespoons caramel syrup
1-2 tablespoons Hazelnut extract (instead of vanilla)
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
1 teaspoon instant coffee
1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
2-3 teaspoons sugar
(Additional instructions – in order to completely dissolve your powdered ingredients, gently heat cocoa powder, sugar and about 1/4 cup of milk until just mixed.)
Homemade vanilla coffee creamer is my favorite!
