Homemade Coffee Creamers

creamers

I love the idea of flavored coffee creamers but I get a little out grossed out by what’s in them. I’ve tried some of the “natural” ones that they sell now and while they are okay, they don’t have a ton of flavor choices to pick from. So I decided to just make my own!!

I adapted the recipe for these creamers from the link below. I added a touch more vanilla in my recipe and increased the half and half from 1 3/4 cups to 2 cups. Feel free to play around with this recipe until you reach your desired consistency and flavor profile.

Homemade Coffee Creamers

The creamers took me about 5 minutes to throw together and they were delicious! It’s nothing more than sweetened condensed milk, half and half (or heavy cream if you like a thicker creamer) and flavorings. You can make so many different flavor combinations once you have the base down, the possibilities are endless. For the recipe below, I decided to split the recipe and make two flavors, Hazelnut and Cinnamon Vanilla. The creamers are great in coffee but REALLY good in hot cocoa too!!

Store the creamers in a cute Mason jar and give them a good shake before using. They will keep about 7-10 days in the fridge.

**Tip** – If you have any leftover creamer after a few days and you want to use it up, dip a few thick slices of Challah bread in the creamer and grill up some deliciously flavored French Toast. 

Ingredients

  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups half and half or heavy cream

For Cinnamon Vanilla Flavor

  • 2-3 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

For Hazelnut Flavor

  • 2 tsp pure hazelnut extract

Instructions

Combine all of the ingredients together in a Mason jar or other container, shake well to combine, and pour. Store in fridge for 7-10 days.

**Tip** – I like to label anything that I make homemade so I know what it is and when it was made. Ball makes great dissolvable labels for this purpose. You can get them from Amazon using the link below:
