Homemade Cofffee Creamers

I LOVE coffee, no doubt about.  So when I happened upon this hip video on how to make your very own coffee creamer I was all over it! I couldn't wait to whip up our very own batch because let's face it, we go through creamer pretty darn fast in this house.


When it comes to the creamer there are just 2 basic ingredients.  Milk and sweetened condensed milk.



Since the possibilities are endless when it comes to ways to flavor your own creamers I decided to make Peppermint Mocha and Vanilla Almond.  Below is the recipe I used to make ours but feel free to change them up however you see fit. 

Peppermint Mocha
14 oz can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
14 oz Milk (any kind at all, whole milk, skim milk, even soy milk)
1 tsp Peppermint (or Mint) Extract
2 tsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

Whisk together milk and the sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl until blended.  Add peppermint extract and cocoa powder.  Whisk until dissolved.  Then simply pour into storage containers (like a mason jar).  Seal tightly and keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.  Be sure to shake creamer before adding to coffee since the sweetened condensed milk may settle to the bottom.

Vanilla Almond
14 oz can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
14 oz Milk (I used Almond Breeze Vanilla milk for this one)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Tbsp Almond flavored Coffee Syrup

Just like above whisk together the milk and sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl until blended.  Add vanilla extract and almond syrup (usually found at the grocery store but have seen some at Ross and Home Goods too).  Stir until dissolved.  Pour into storage containers and seal tightly.  Be sure to shake creamer before adding to coffee since the sweetened condensed milk may settle to the bottom.

Can you believe how easy that is? I love that when you make your very own coffee creamer you know exactly what's going into it and it's actually pretty cost effective too. 

Have you tried making your own coffee creamer before?  If so what flavor did you create?
