Homemade Coffee Creamer – Over 2 Dozen Flavor Varieties!

Homemade Coffee Creamer - over 2 dozen flavor possibilities with one base recipe!

Back in 2011, I posted a recipe for Homemade French Vanilla Coffee Creamer.  I had no idea it would become as popular as it has!  Millions of views & pins later, and it is still the #1 most popular recipe on the Mrs.  So many people have written in to me with compliments of how much they love it, and I have received so many requests for all sorts of flavors.  Not to mention, all the wonderful suggestions that my wonderful readers have taken the time to leave behind on the comment forms.  So, this extended post with different flavor combinations has been a very long time coming.

Ok, so for whatever flavor of creamer you want, you start off with the same basic ‘base’ recipe.

  • 14oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 3/4 cup milk or cream (whole, lowfat, skim, almond, soy, heavy cream, half & half etc – whatever your preference, however the more fat, the more creaminess)

Mix the ingredients together well.  I like to add them to a mason jar and shake it like crazy. You could also opt to use an old (washed) creamer container.  Refer to the directions & tips at the very end of the post as well.

For those of you who want or need a sugar free option.  You can make your own sweetened condensed milk with the sugar substitute of your choice. Now, you can make your own sugar free flavored creamer 🙂

Starting off with the original french vanilla recipe, here’s a list of the different flavor combinations you can add to the base recipe for your own homemade custom creamer!

Homemade Coffee Creamer - over 2 dozen different flavor possibilities!

French Vanilla Creamer

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract OR vanilla coffee syrup

Vanilla Bean Coffee Creamer

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste


  • 2-3 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • (1 tsp vanilla extract, optional)

Chocolate Almond

  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder 
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract


  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

Samoa (like the Girl Scout Cookies)

  • 2 teaspoons coconut extract (or sub coconut milk or cream of coconut, heated & strained, for the milk/cream)
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 2 tablespoons caramel ice cream topping

Peppermint Patty

  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract

Cinnamon Vanilla

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Pumpkin Spice

  • 3 tablespoons pureed pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Honey Vanilla

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Homemade Coffee Creamer - over 2 dozen flavor possibilities and one base recipe!

Almond Joy

  • 1-2 teaspoons coconut extract (or sub coconut milk or cream of coconut if you heat it first, strained, in place of the milk & extract)
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup

Sweet Cream

  • Use 1 3/4 cups of heavy cream instead of the milk in the base recipe
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract OR the inside of a vanilla bean, scraped
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

Chocolate Orange

  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 1-2 teaspoons orange extract


  • 2 teaspoons hazelnut extract

Chocolate Hazelnut

  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 2 teaspoons hazelnut extract

Cinnamon Cake

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Salted Caramel

  • 2-3 tablespoons caramel ice cream topping
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • replace milk in base recipe with equal amount of heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons rum extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Toasted Almond

  • 2 teaspoons almond extract


Directions & Tips:

In all these recipes, anything that has a dry or thick ingredient (like cinnamon, honey, etc..) should be heated up with a small amount of your milk/cream from the base recipe so it can dissolve properly.  You don’t want grainy creamer!  Then, add the rest of the milk/cream along with the sweetened condensed milk.

If you want really creamy creamer, use heavy cream instead of milk in your base recipe.

I stick a piece of tape on my mason jar lid with the expiration date from the milk I used.  I use this as a guideline as to when the creamer should be used by.

Please feel free to play around with amounts of extracts and other ingredients used if you like stronger or less intense flavors!!  And, let your imagination turn, and make up your own combinations. Use this as inspiration to create your very own perfect homemade flavored creamer!

    I just made vanilla, so easy and tastes good, I had run out of creamer and none was on sale so I decided to give it a try.

  • Jeannie

    How long will the creamer last?

    • Bethany

      Use the expiration date on your milk. If you use half and half it’s supposed to be used within 7 days of opening the container or it spoils.

      • Squeakymouse

        This is highly variable though. I use half and half and have had a batch been perfectly tasty and safe two and a half weeks later.

  • Jeannie

    Just saw your note about putting the milk expiration date on the lid.

  • Tip for adding unsweetened cocoa…in a small dish add a small amount of hot water (like a few tablespoons) then add the cocoa (2 or so tablespoon) mix it around and then add to the creamer. The creamer tasted great thank you!!

    How would you make White chocolate Raspberry. I see you have Chocolate Raspberry. I,v made Some of it. It was pretty good. B ut I love white chocolate. Speedway use to. Feel in love with it. Every morning I would get me a Lg cup of it. So if you could tell me how to make white chocolate Raspberry. I would love you forever.

    • I would try it with melted white chocolate instead of the chocolate syrup.

    • Andrianna Gervais

      Get the Torani Brand White Chocolate Syrup, like what’s in a Starbucks drink.

  • Nestle stopped making cafe latte flavored cremer. I would love to copy that flavor any ideas for that flavor? Thanks kelly

    • The cafe latte is essentially just cream and sugar, so I’d start with a the basic recipe, maybe up the ratio of mik/cream to condensed milk (to lessen any oversweetness) and no flavoring. The cafe latte was my back up after my Pumpkin Spice supply ran out! I guess I’ll just have to start making them for myself.

  • I just tried this with regular vanilla. Turned out pretty good! I blogged about it: http://justaddlaughter.blogspot.com/2013/04/homemade-coffee-creamer.html

  • I have used one heath bar chopped up fine then heated with the base creamer to make Belgian chocolate toffee

  • Also use 2 tbsp of vanilla and 3 tbsp of brown sugar for Creme Brulee

    • Emily

      thanks for the tip

  • super yummy. I was horrified when I discovered hydrogenated soybean oil in my coffee creamer. I didn’t follow this recipe 100% (I only used 1 cup of powdered milk and about 1 tablespoon of butter and subbed stevia for the sweetened condensed milk) but it came out amazing. I did the *cinnamon cake* flavor. I am in love!!! I am sure your exact version with the full strength sweetened milk is heaven!

  • Jennifer

    I just made some with fat free milk and fat free sweetened condensed milk and I like it very much!! Thank you for the recipe! I want to experiment with other flavors now 🙂

  • Debra Andrews

    Thanks very much for these delicious recipes!

  • Michelle

    Do you mind telling where you get your pure extracts? The coconut I got was awful and don’t want to waste money trying different brands. Thank you for the recipes!

    • I make a lot of mine myself, and the rest of mine come from Trader Joes or Whole Foods

    • HockeyMama


    • Connie Brown

      For pure extracts, check out Whole Foods or an organic grocery store in your area.

    • Natyxia

      Check out Watkins brand, pure and reasonable.

    • Colleen P

      I think Watkins extracts are the best

  • Does anyone know how to make White Chocolate?
    That’s my favorite and they’re not selling it anymore.

    • The white chocolate syrup that Starbucks uses in their white mochas would work in this recipe……not sure if they sell just the syrup though.

      • Andrianna Gervais

        Torani sells a white chocolate syrup that you could use instead. You can get it at places like Smart and Final.

        Starbucks does not sell the Hazelnut, the Caramel, the Chocolate, or the White Chocolate- any of the thick syrups. I’ve asked.

        • Chelsea

          They do actually sell all of those on their website. They are a bit pricey though. It would be less expensive to buy your own coffee creamer at that point.

          • Ashley

            Target sells different flavors of coffee syrup. They might have white chocolate.

      • kgm

        There’s a difference between the syrup and the sauce – if you want the thick creamy white chocolate Torani then get the sauce, they make it in a sugar free variety. The syrup is the thin transparent and light amber colored. I used to buy mine on eBay in gallon jugs – it lasts forever and it is great – it is the same as Starbuck’s uses. I’ve found a new source to buy at a kitchen/restaurant supply place in Branson, MO also.

      • Christina Stahler

        you can but the Ghirardelli white chocolate sauce to use in this. turns out great.

    • sharon cecil
      • sharon cecil

        I have not tried this but I will,…

    • Patrick Lawrence McCormack

      World Market sells a SF White Chocolate syrup. Brand name is: Torani. 750 ml for about $6.50. Torani has about 80 different flavors. That includes 36 sugar free flavors. Free shipping if you buy about 7 – 8 bottles.

  • how long does the creamer last?

    • Kate

      I use about a tablespoon or tad more daily, and it made a somewhat large amount (like a bigger bottle of coffeemate. I’m the only one in my house that uses creamer) and it was fresh until I finished: about 3wks? maybe tad longer?

  • Heather Moss

    Thank you thank you! My family wanted a real creamer and stores in our area don’t seem to carry the real deal. This is a life saver!

    does anyone know how to make an amaretto one? I love that recipe.

  • Would evaporated milk work in place of the condensed milk? I’m trying to make it as low fat and low sugar as possible. TIA!!!

    • Alma

      they have low fat condensed milk, I even think they have it sugar free

      • Kevin

        If it’s sugar free than it’s just Evaporated Milk.

        • No, it has sugar substitute.

      • chris

        I think I’ve seen SF condensed milk.

    • Britt

      I did. I looked it up and it said to add 1 cup sugar to every 1 cup evaporated milk. I know it sounds ridiculous, but that’s what it said.

  • Jamie Dal Cero

    any idea on Italian sweet cream?

    • Faith D.

      The recipe I found for the Italian sweet creme was just the sweetened condensed milk/milk base. That’s actually what I use.

  • Rachel

    Thank you! Coffee “creamer” at the store is so disgusting. I looked at the ingredients after my family accidentally left the container out for 6 hours and noticed there’s no cream in it at all… just sugar, water, and a bunch of other icky stuff. Thank you so much for posting a REAL recipe!

  • KimberRN

    If you plan on using this for iced coffee, I’d strongly suggest not using the coconut milk method. I tried it, and heating/straining or not, it left me with very unpleasant results- chunky creamer and not very coconut-flavored.

    That being said, I have a variation to share: Cinnamon Vanilla Orange. Just add orange extract to the above cinnamon variations. I once bought whole-bean coffee that was this flavor and it was fab. I just mixed up a batch of this creamer flavor and will be drinking it tomorrow in my iced cinnamon that I take to work.

    I’d like to try to come up with a variation that tastes like Bailey’s Toffee Almond creamer. The obvious ingredients are toffee syrup and almond extract, but I’d like to try to come up with something that doesn’t rely on store-bought syrup. Any thoughts?

  • tracyanne

    I’m dying to know! Where did you find the creamer, cup, spoon and saucer set? I’ve looked high and low for one and can’t seem to find anything similar!

    • They are from the line ‘Temp-tations’ from QVC in the old world pattern.

    • Suzi Schumann

      that looks like something called Temptations that they sell on QVC. I’m not positive, but the pattern looks like it. Beware, once you buy one piece, you keep wanting to buy other pieces to match.

  • Jo Ann Simmons

    Make a double batch and pour half into ice cube trays, cover tightly with plastic wrap and freeze. You can remove them one at a time and keep the rest frozen. Great if you have an unpredictable schedule, or are going for portion control. Put a cube into a 6-8 oz cup and gently melt it in the microwave, or pour just enough hot coffee over it to melt it, then top off with more hot coffee. I don’ recommend dropping a frozen cube into a cup of hot coffe unmelted. It drops the temp of the hot coffee too fast and that first sip is not nearly as satsfying.

    JO ANN

    • Rhonda

      Great idea because I don’t like my coffee piping hot. Just barely hotter than warm. I work in a very fast pace Dr’s office and get too hot if I drink HOT coffee.

    • CM

      That would work well for replacing regular ice cubes in iced coffee (that is, if you like cream in your iced coffee).

    What’s the process for heating/straining the cream of coconut?

    What about blueberry creamer? Coffeemate use to make a a creamer called blueberry cobbler but quit. It was great, reminded me of blueberry muffins more than cobbler..

    • That is one I’m working on – stay tuned 🙂

      • Kristi Sollosi

        any progress on that one???

    • bleunoko

      I just got a bottle of blueberry flavor syrup so I’ll test it out and report back

      • deb

        Try add equal amounts of vanilla and hazelnut syrups (1/4 each) along w/ the blueberry syrup (1/2), I suspect this will give the “cobbler or pie” type flavor. We do this in our java bar as flavoring w/ any many fruit syrups. Could also add just a hint of cinnamon?

  • bryan

    It’s very good! I made just Cajeta Vanilla.

  • Debra

  • Sherry

    I use Southern butter pecan. That’s my favorite. How do you think you could copy that?

    • leeci

      You’d have to use the cooking method, but maybe make the base, pour some into a pan, and cook chopped pecans and butter at a simmer in the base for 15 minutes or so, then strain with a cheesecloth to get the flavor but not the bits of pecan.

      • Great suggestion, thank you Leeci! 🙂

  • Laurel Carlson

    My favorite is the Coffeemate Italian Sweet Cream. Does anyone know how I would make that?

    • I don’t think they would fare well in the freezer with the dairy factor. I would just cut the recipe in half instead.

      • bleunoko

        Actually dairy freezes quite well. Just freeze in an ice cube tray then pop into a container and take out as needed.

    The pumpkin spice coffee creamer tastes like Dunkin Donut’s pumpkin spice. I love that. I split the recipe in half and made pumpkin spice and almond joy.

  • Korryn

    This will be so much cheaper and yummier than buying a bunch of creamer every month! I found this by searching the internet thanks for the recipe!

  • Kathy

    Good, but make it with half and half instead of heavy whipping cream (if you were going that route). Reason is when you shake up the mixture using heavy cream, you end up with whipped topping! Better to use something else…

    • Sandra

      When I use heavy cream I don’t shake vigorously, I just tip the bottle back and forth until incorporated. That way I do not make whipping cream 😀

    • Liz Harrington

      It would take A LOT of vigorous shaking to make it whip up like a whipped topping.

  • Tearesa Tokvam

      Trying putting some of the base in a pan, then adding butter (maybe 1/2 stick salted) and chopped pecans in to the mix, bring to near boil, then drop and put on a low simmer for 15-20 minutes. Cool the mixture then strain in a cheesecloth. Will need tweaking but it’s a start.

    Can anybody tell me how to make Toffee Almond and Heath bar creamers? The rest are pretty easy to figure out.

    FYI, those concerned with using canned sweetened condensed milk, Trader Joe’s now sells bottles of organic SCM!

    Hi! Thank you so much for sharing your recipes 🙂 I’m planning on making a choc caramel… I have a question though. I already have some chocolate and caramel syrup on hand, can I use that instead of going out and buying the ice cream topping stuff? If so, do I use the same amounts? Thank you!!

  • Jodilynn Bednarski-Wozniak

    Has anyone actually compared the difference in price to the coffee creamer homemade to the coffee creamer bought at the store? just wondering,i love to make anything home made and this is great to add to my small baking business too.and i love to make up Christmas baskets for my family since its so large,this would be a great addition to my baskets along with my homemade blanket,wreathes,caramel apples,and now the creamers along with other stuff I put in for each family member,sounds like a great gift to me and I always personalize each basket for the family,sports,animals,kiddies,wine..etc each family is always personalized..Im so excited for the new addition!!!!

    Just made a half batch using FF sweetened condensed milk and half n half plus liquid Stevia vanilla drops. really good thank you!

  • walkinaz

    Tried this with hazelnut. I added an extra teaspoon of hazelnut extract and it doesn’t taste like hazelnut creamer at all. It’s still good creamer. Maybe I’ll try vanilla next.

  • JKD

    I tried this, it was terrible! Do not like the condensed milk after taste ! 🙁

  • KonstantKarmabyMissi

    Made the cinnamon vanilla this morning when I realized I was out of creamer. I may never buy it again! Thanks for the recipes!

    I made the peppermint patty recipe and, wowza, the peppermint was so over-powering. 1 tsp is too much, in my opinion. I’ve tried diluting it down with more chocolate and more milk and it helped a little. If I make that flavor again, I will use much less peppermint extract.

    Does anyone know how to make amaretto?

    What ever the date is on the milk or cream carton, that is your expiry date! Get it?

  • Jason

    Just for information, you can verify if you’d like, but the “expiration” date on milk isn’t that significant. Milk, once container is opened and seal is broken, should be used within 7 days. Learned that on a hazard walk through for a fire service inspection.

    Made the hazelnut creamer with evaporated milk in place of milk or cream and added 1 tsp of cinnamon extract. Sooooo good.

  • morphiaflow

    Anyone else have issue with dissolving the cinnamon? I put two teaspoons in the pan with a maybe an 1/8 cup of nonfat milk and it turned into cinnamon sludge. I tried straining what I could out of the sludge through a coffee filter, but I did end up throwing most of it away.

    • Dani Ballou

      This is kind of an old comment, but if you haven’t figured anything out, I suggest trying a coffee filter. 🙂

  • Samantha Judd

    Hi! I tried the recipe with skim milk, sweet condensed milk, and vanilla and almond extract and it tastes wonderful by itself. But when I put it in my coffee it curdles???? Any idea how to get around this?

    Can you freeze the coffee cream after making and if how long is freezer time good.

    I just need some good quality vanilla extract. I’ve been using some K-Cup coffee in Chicago and want some high quality creamer in it.

    I figured the nutritional info for this. I used 1 cup of 2% milk, 3/4 cup of heavy cream, and the 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk. I figured this to equal 24 fluid ounces, with the serving size being 1TBS, or 48 servings per batch. The 14 ounces of sweetened condensed milk is equal to 10 fluid ounces. For one tablespoon the calories are 36, total fat 1.5g, saturated fat 0.9g, sugar 4.7g and carbs 4.8g. I used a calorie count website to enter the recipe info. I am by no means a nutritionist so if this is incorrect, speak up!

  • Emily Taylor

    Also, does anyone know how to make a sugar cookie flavor? I use this creamer recipe in a cup of black tea, delicious!!

  • Kelsey Michelle Fry

    Expiration date? Should you use the second ingredient’s date?

  • Barb Schreiber Gookin

    Love your Temp-tations! I have many patterns in their collection. So much fun to see your creamer and sugar set with your homemade creamer.

    Just made your sweet cream recipe. In order to get it more like the Italian sweet cream flavor from coffeemate, I used 3t vanilla extract and 2t almond extract rather than your 2/1 in the recipe. Good stuff!!!

  • Jamie Turney

    Mixed some of this up with whole milk and found it to be too sweet but not creamy enough for my taste. Also found that the flavor of the sweetened condensed milk is a bit too “dulce de leche”. Not a flavor I like in my coffee.

    Has anyone been able to make a coconut flavor that uses Cream of Coconut (like Coco Lopez) instead of the sweetened condensed milk? I tolerate dairy just fine, but would like to get away from that caramel-like flavor.

  • Tried the sweet cream recipe. DELICIOUS!! While I was shopping for my ingredients I ran across some caramel flavored sweetened condensed milk. YUM! Picked up some of it and used it in place of caramel ice cream syrup to make vanilla caramel creamer and it is FABULOUS!! Says it is a limited edition. Must get more of this before it is gone. Thanks for your recipes. They are AWESOME!!

  • Corina

    I mixed a 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon in 1/4 cup of my Half & Half, warmed it for 20 seconds and whisked it. Then I added 4 Tbsp Smuckers Caramel Topping, blending it well. Then finally 2 tsp vanilla and whisked it lightly. I added this to the Sweetened Condensed Milk and 1 1/2 cups Half & Half. It turned out great!

    It seems as though ID has discontinued the York Peppermint Patty flavor. Which is how my morning got started for years 🙁 Its been a rough 4 weeks without it lol. Consumers are lighting up ID’s FB page asking why they can’t find it! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing the recipe!!! No one needs all the chemicals in the store brands anyway. Yours is the “cleaner” version! Happy mama=happy home! THANK YOU!!!!!

    Hi there, I just made my first creamer I was trying to make the French Vanilla, but someone else had said you needed to use hazelnut. Well, I had no hazelnut, but I didn’t care, because it was SO GOOD!!

    Ok, so my question about the base recipe? How do I make it to be 32oz? I have a bottle of creamer I just finished. I need fill it to the brim, so it will last till next payday!!
