It’s super easy to make your own coffee creamer.  You only need 2 ingredients for the base.  Plus you can customize your creamer to fit what flavor strikes your fancy.

All you need is:  one 14 ounce can  of sweetened condensed milk and 1 3/4 cup of milk or cream (whole, lowfat, skim, almond, soy, heavy cream, or half-n-half).  Remember the more fat – the more creamy.

Just whisk together both ingredients until combined.

You can store the creamer in an empty 32oz store bought container if you are content with one flavor for your coffee.

If you are like me and want a different flavor every morning, then fill 3 or 4 eight ounce lidded jars with creamer; then add your favorite flavor to each jar.

Be sure to mark the flavor on the jar after filling.  Shake jar well before serving.

I have tried these first 3 flavors: but also I have included other ideas for your personal enjoyment.

If the flavor you choose has an ingredient that is powdered (like cinnamon or cocoa) Heat about 1/2 cup of the base and dissolve the powder first.  Then fill the jar.

Creamer will last in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks


1 Tablespoon cocoa powder

1 Teaspoon almond extract


3 Tablespoons pureed pumpkin(must be pureed)

1 Teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

4 Tablespoons maple syrup

1 Teaspoon vanilla extract


2 Tablespoons chocolate syrup

1/2 to 1 teaspoon peppermint extract

The following are ideas that I have not tried-be creative….


1Teaspoon vanilla extract

1Teaspoon hazel nut extract


3 Tablespoon chocolate syrup


2 Tablespoons chocolate syrup

1 Tablespoon vanilla extract


2 Teaspoons cinnamon

2 Teaspoons vanilla extract


2-3 Tablespoons caramel ice cream topping

Coffe creamer can also be added to other drinks like hot or iced tea.  Also try the mint in chocolate milk.

Add a little sweetness to your day
