I like coffee. A lot. 

I have kind of gone back and forth about my coffee addiction.

I mean, adoration.

In the past, I occasionally felt too dependent on caffeine and tried hard to wean myself off.

When I got pregnant, I pretty much gave up coffee completely.

And then I had a newborn and – WHAM! – I was back to my old ways.

Hello, caffeine.

I love you so hard. I need you in my life.

Unfortunately, though my youngest is now well beyond his baby days, my coffee habit remains in full force.

Because I drink so much of it, and my hubs is pretty much the same way, we go through a ton of creamer.

We can easily go through two bottles of the stuff in a week (don’t judge us).

At $3 or more a pop, that’s over $24 per month on coffee creamer.

So, it’s no wonder I took a stab at making my own.

If you’re hooked on store-bought creamer and looking to save a few bucks then today’s your day.

This homemade French vanilla coffee creamer is luscious and so much more affordable than store bought.

Ingredients

To make this you only need a few ingredients:

  • Sweetened Condensed Milk– Either homemade or store bought.
  • Milk or cream– Whole, lowfat, skim, almond, soy, heavy cream, half & half, it is based on your preference. Keep in mind the more fat = the creamier it will be.
  • Vanilla extract– Use real vanilla extract for best flavor.

How to Make

Making this couldn’t be easier! It’s so easy you’ll wonder why you ever bought coffee creamer from the store in the first place.

To do it, just add all the ingredients to a mason jar and secure the lid. 

Then give the jar a good shake to combine everything.

That’s it! You’re done!

How long does homemade coffee creamer last?

Make sure you check the expiration date on your milk first.

If your milk will still be good, your creamer will last in a sealed jar in your fridge for 7 to 10 days.

Notes

Looking for a different flavor? Make the 'base' recipe which is the condensed milk with the addition of the regular milk or cream. Then add in your favorite flavor combinations.
Any dry add in, should be heated with a bit of milk until evenly combined to prevent the creamer from being grainy.
Your creamer will be good up until the expiration date on the milk or cream you used in your base recipe.

  6. I love your coffee creamer recipes. My husband and I drink coffee/ iced coffee a lot. Your recipes have saved on the cost of buying creamers. I make your vanilla, peppermint patty, and Samoa creamers.
