French Vanilla Coffee Creamer

 

Please check out the updated version of this coffee creamer with more than 2 dozen flavors you can make yourself, and some great hints & tips!

Coffee is my best friend in the mornings.  Sometimes it is even my best friend in the afternoon.  I take mine with cream & sugar while my husband takes his sugar & cream with a little bit of coffee.

Needless to say, coffee creamer is as much of a necessity in our house as a loaf of bread.  It can get expensive though & a lot of the times, you can’t even pronounce all of the ingredients on the label.  That’s never a good thing.  Or, you just run out of it – and don’t want to drive to the store to get some more.

 

 

Making my own coffee creamer has long replaced the store bought here.  It’s cheap, easy, & you know what’s in it.

Combine it all in a jar, and shake vigorously to combine.
