I like to make my own coffee creamers at home whenever I can. This homemade coffee creamer comes together quickly, it’s made with only a few ingredients and it’s so much healthier than the store bought creamer.
It’s really easy to do, too.
First we’re going to make a plain coffee creamer – the creamer base. After that we’ll just use different spices and extracts to make different flavors. In only 5 minutes, you’ll have the perfect homemade creamer for your morning cup of joe.
HOMEMADE COFFEE CREAMER
Make creamer base: Combine 1 3/4 milk + 1 can sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl and whisk until well combined. That’s our basic creamer. If you like a classic coffee creamer with no extra flavors, you can use it as is. If not, let’s move to the next step. Here are some flavor combinations:
Almond Joy creamer: creamer base + 1 tsp almond extract + 1 1/2 tsp coconut extract + 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Vanilla: creamer base + 2 tsp vanilla extract
Peppermint Mocha: creamer base + 1 tsp peppermint extract + 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Salted Caramel: creamer base + 3 tbsp caramel sauce + 2 pinch salt
Pumpkin Spice: base + 2 tbsp pumpkin puree + 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Hazelnut: creamer base + 2 tsp hazelnut extract
Nutella: creamer base + 4 tbsp Nutella
You can also use a large mason jar for this recipe. Pour all ingredients into a jar, close well and shake like crazy. When using dry cocoa powder, you might want to heat a small amount of milk and mix first, to make sure it’s completely dissolved. Or you can mix everything in a food processor.
If you prefer something less sweet, you could make this coffee creamer with 2 cups milk and 1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk. It will still be creamy but will have less sugar. You can also substitute sweetened condensed milk for heavy cream or half and half.
Store your homemade coffee creamer in the fridge, in a well-closed mason jar or glass bottle. Good for 7 days, or by the date on your milk carton (as long as the milk is fresh, the creamer will be too). Shake before each use.
Please note: these are not sugar-free or fat-free coffee creamers. I use regular milk and sugar so if you have diabetes or some allergies, please use sugar/milk replacement you normally use.
