Homemade Coffee Creamer


I noticed an abundance of homemade coffee creamer recipes showing up on blogs and Pinterest last week. Since I had all of the ingredients and a carton of milk that was about to expire, I decided to make it myself.


Homemade Coffee Creamer
1 8oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup milk (I used 2%)
2 tsp Almond Extract
Several shakes of Cinnamon

Pour into mason jar and shake. Pour a generous amount into your coffee.

I am not sure how long this will last in the fridge, but I've had it a week and it still tastes great!

With the homemade version, I found that I had to use a lot more cream in my coffee than usual; however, I did not have to add any additional sweetener. The coffee with the homemade creamer tasted equally as good as a Starbucks latte. It actually resembled a latte much more than coffee, likely due to the sweetened condensed milk.

While I personally love the flavor and smell of almond extract, the variations are endless. Use the milk base and make up your own creation.

Peppermint Extract + Cocoa Powder

Vanilla Extract + Cinnamon Sticks

Pumpkin Pie Spice

....And many more ideas can be found online!
