Homemade Coffee Creamer – Over 2 Dozen Flavor Varieties!
Love coffee but don’t love the price of buying flavored coffees? If you’re a coffee fan who loves to switch things up, then this is for you! I’ve got 2 dozen coffee creamer ideas and recipes for you all made from one base recipe so that you can add unique flavors to your next cup of coffee!
Way back in 2011, I posted a recipe for Homemade French Vanilla Coffee Creamer, and it’s still one of my most popular recipes. People all over the world wrote to me telling me how great this homemade creamer was and to ask for more flavor variations.
I didn’t realize people would be so interested! I have been making dozens of coffee creamer flavor variations for years and decided to put them all down into one handy post so that people could find what they want or try something new.
It all starts with the base recipe. This basic coffee creamer recipe uses 2 ingredients, but you can adjust them to suit your taste. If you scroll down to the bottom of this page, you’ll find the complete recipe and list of amounts to make my famous coffee creamer.
What You’ll Need:
- Sweetened condensed milk – they’re shelf-stable, so grab a few cans from the store
- Milk or cream – see my notes below for suggestions
What Kind of Milk to Use in Coffee Creamer?
You can use pretty much any kind of milk or cream, including whole, low-fat, skim, almond, soy, half & half, heavy cream, and so on. Just remember, the higher the fat content, the more creamy your creamer will be!
How to Make Basic Homemade Creamer Recipe
It’s pretty simple: Put the sweetened condensed milk and your milk of choice into a large jar and shake it like crazy! You can repurpose an old creamer container, use a large jar, or use a separate jug for it. Just remember it needs to stay in the fridge, so make sure your container will fit.
What About Sugar-Free Creamer?
You can make your own sugar-free coffee creamer if you start with sugar-free condensed milk with the sugar substitute of your choice. This recipe shows you how.
How Long Does Coffee Creamer Keep in the Fridge?
Normally, this coffee creamer should be consumed within 7 days. However, very fresh milk might extend the time by a few days. Keep your creamer in an airtight container in the fridge and give it a bit of a shake before using it.
How To Make Different Flavors of Coffee Creamer
- Always start with the base recipe.
- Pick your flavor and add those ingredients to the base recipe.
- Mix well and enjoy!
Tips To Making The Best Homemade Coffee Creamer
- If the recipe calls for a dry or thick ingredient (like cinnamon or honey), mix it first with a few tablespoons of the base creamer and heat it in the microwave to dissolve it. Then, mix that warmed mixture into the rest of the base, and this will ensure it’s not grainy and well mixed.
- Love a creamy creamer? Use heavy whipping cream instead of milk in the base recipe.
- I write the expiry date on a piece of tape and stick that to the lid of my creamer container, so I don’t have to wonder if it is still fresh or not.
- Mix and match! Experiment with different amounts of extracts and flavorings to discover all your favorites.
- Use my suggestions below as inspiration and create your own combinations! Let me know what you come up with!

It doesn’t get much better than this! Stop paying big bucks for a vanilla caramel coffee at your coffee shop and make it at home, instead! Just add 2 tablespoons of caramel ice cream topping and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract to the base creamer recipe and shake well.

I love peppermint and coffee, and this delish coffee is so simple! Just add 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup and 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract to the base creamer recipe.

Soothing, delicious, and lightly sweetened, Honey Vanilla Coffee is so good! Mix ¼ cup honey and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract into your base recipe and shake well.

Just like the candy bar, this tasty creamer has 1-2 teaspoons of coconut extract, 1 teaspoon of almond extract and 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup in it. Mix well and enjoy!
Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer
Extra indulgent and oh-so-good, this treat is made by using heavy cream instead of milk in the base recipe. Then, add 2 teaspoons of vanilla (or the scraped insides of 1 vanilla bean) plus 1 teaspoon almond extract. Pair this decadent coffee with a slice of MawMaw’s Chocolate Pecan Pie.
Chocolate-Orange Coffee Creamer
Chocolate, orange, and coffee are such a wonderful combination! Add 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup and 1-2 teaspoons of orange extract to the base creamer and sip on a delicious dessert coffee.

Nutty and rich, if you love hazelnut, you’ll love this hazelnut creamer! Add 2 teaspoons of hazelnut extract to the base and enjoy!

Cinnamon Cake Coffee Creamer
I can’t get enough cinnamon, and I LOVE this cinnamon creamer recipe. I make it by adding 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 2 teaspoons of vanilla to the base creamer. Shake well and add a generous amount to a freshly-brewed cup of coffee.
Salted Caramel Coffee Creamer
This has been one of my favorites for a long time. Just add 2-3 tablespoons of caramel ice cream topping plus ½ teaspoon of salt to the base creamer. You can also use my recipe for homemade salted caramel in this. Delish!
Eggnog Coffee Creamer
This is the best around the holidays, and it’s so easy to make! Start by making the base creamer recipe but use heavy cream instead of milk. Then, add 1 teaspoon each of vanilla extract and ground nutmeg, and 2 teaspoons rum extract. Fabulous!
Toasted Almond Coffee Creamer
Almond fans love this simple recipe! Just add 2 teaspoons of almond extract to the base recipe and that’s it!
Homemade Coffee Creamer
- 14 oz 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
- Pour into a large mason jar and shake, shake, shake until combined.
- Refer to blog post on MrsHappyHomemaker.com for flavor combinations!
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.

How long will the creamer last?
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.
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.
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.
Get the Torani Brand White Chocolate Syrup, like what’s in a Starbucks drink.
Oh, me toooo!
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
thanks for the tip
LOVE it! Thanks

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!
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 🙂
Thanks very much for these delicious recipes!
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
ac mOORE OR mICHAELS IN THE CAKE DECORATING SUPPLY DEPT SELLS EVERY TYPE OF PURE EXTRACT YOU CAN THINK OF..DESIGNED FOR CAKES AND FROSTINGS. tEY AL TASTE YUMMY AND THE AE CONCENTRATED SO JUST A FW DROPS IS ALL YOU NEED
For pure extracts, check out Whole Foods or an organic grocery store in your area.
Check out Watkins brand, pure and reasonable.
I used Watkins but it was imitation. Didn’t taste very good. The recipe called for 2 TSP and I had to use 4 and it still doesn’t taste that good. This was my first time making my own creamer though.
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.
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.
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.
Target sells different flavors of coffee syrup. They might have white chocolate.
Yes Starbucks actually sells all the theyre syrups and chocolate sauces (milk chocolate, bitter sweet chocolate and white chocolate) in they’re website store. Just go to Starbucks.com. It’s all very reasonably priced considering the large amounts you get for the money. Much better deal than Torani’s when given price per ounce! I’ve been buying they’re products for a long time as I keep my own coffee bar well stocked so I can make all they’re drinks at home and save tons of money! 🙂
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.
you can but the Ghirardelli white chocolate sauce to use in this. turns out great.
I have not tried this but I will,…
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?
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?
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!
I love the Coffemate Creme Brulee…….anyone know what flavors I could use to make that?

does anyone know how to make an amaretto one? I love that recipe.
You can buy Amaretto extracts online, like this one: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/amaretto-flavor-1-oz
It’s an Italian liquor based on Almond and Apricot, so perhaps a combination of those too?
I use 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of almond extract.
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!!!
they have low fat condensed milk, I even think they have it sugar free
If it’s sugar free than it’s just Evaporated Milk.
No, it has sugar substitute.
I think I’ve seen SF condensed milk.
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.
Cherise, I get the fat free condensed milk. I hope that helps.
For a sugar free condensed milk substitute. http://www.food.com/recipe/sweetened-condensed-milk-sugar-free-substitute-323456

Does anyone know how to make s’more creamer? Would love to have a recipe.
I think you could use chocolate syrup and marshmallow extract or syrup. They also make graham cracker extract and shortbread coffee syrup.
any idea on Italian sweet cream?
The recipe I found for the Italian sweet creme was just the sweetened condensed milk/milk base. That’s actually what I use.
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!
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
I love this idea, I have icecube trays with lids on them and as I am the only one drinking coffee with creamer I don’t think I would get through it before the expiration date 🙂
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?
Heat it until warm & then use a fine mesh strainer to strain 🙂
What about a salted caramel mocha creamer? That is my boyfriends fav!
If you are looking for different extract favors, try your local cake decorating stores! They have many favors of extracts and emulsions.
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 🙂
any progress on that one???
I just got a bottle of blueberry flavor syrup so I’ll test it out and report back
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?
If you have a Keurig, there is a Wild Mountain Blueberry flavored coffee by Green Mountain that is fantastic with the Sweet Cream recipe on this blog.
That’s actually my favorite coffee & creamer combo!
I’m going to try this with blueberry powder.
It’s very good! I made just Cajeta Vanilla.
thanks for helping me add a little variety to my coffee obsession 🙂
Love all of the creamer recipes, but I am loving the coffee cup more!!!!! Lol. My grandchildren call me “Sassy” . Do you know where I can get one of these cups??? I would greatly appreciate the info. My email is [email protected]. Thanks……….
It came from The Disney Store several years ago, and actually has Tinkerbell on the opposite side. You could try Ebay or Amazon to see if you could find it! 🙂
I use Southern butter pecan. That’s my favorite. How do you think you could copy that?
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! 🙂
My favorite is the Coffeemate Italian Sweet Cream. Does anyone know how I would make that?
That is listed above, it’s one of my favorites as well
Yay, thanks for doing this!! I love my creamers and this will be very fun to try!
Would it be possible to freeze these creamer….my hubby is the only one that uses creamer and he’s never drink that much coffee in 7 days! Thanks 🙂

I don’t think they would fare well in the freezer with the dairy factor. I would just cut the recipe in half instead.
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.
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!
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…
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 😀
It would take A LOT of vigorous shaking to make it whip up like a whipped topping.
I just made the pumpkin spice. Delicious I will never buy it from the store again. Thank You for sharing. Also what about Peppermint mochoa?

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.

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!!
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!
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.
I tried this, it was terrible! Do not like the condensed milk after taste ! 🙁
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.
your post because I like the way you collaborate and share your opinions,
great blog, carry on.
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?
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.
Thankfulness to my father who informed me on the topic of
this web site, this webpage is really remarkable.
I love this recipe. I make a bottle for home and one for work. Has anyone calculated the calorie count?

Made the hazelnut creamer with evaporated milk in place of milk or cream and added 1 tsp of cinnamon extract. Sooooo good.
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.
This is kind of an old comment, but if you haven’t figured anything out, I suggest trying a coffee filter. 🙂
Cinnamon doesn’t dissolve so maybe seeping a cinnamon stick in hot liquid like heated condensed milk before cooling it in fridge? I haven’t tried it but that may be the best bet to not have cinnamon silt and still get the cinnamon flavor. Hope it helps
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?

How long does the creamer last for?
I made this today for the first time, I had to use 3 tablespoons of Vanilla syrup (coffee flavoring) and 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract.
I have to

Can you freeze the coffee cream after making and if how long is freezer time good.
No, I wouldn’t advice that.
amazing information is really a good idea. I want to appreciate you on this.

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!
Also, does anyone know how to make a sugar cookie flavor? I use this creamer recipe in a cup of black tea, delicious!!
I would like to know too! Sugar cookie is my absolute favorite and it is only seasonal.
Expiration date? Should you use the second ingredient’s date?

Any ideas on how to make a mudslide 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!!!
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!!

I shared your site on my blog post today. I love the vanilla recipe and can’t wait to try the pumpkin spice one in the fall! Thanks! https://lagunalane.com/a-healthier-coffee-creamer/
So, I’m new to the homemade creamer party. I’ve loved this post for all the different recipe variations. The pumpkin spice has been my favorite thus far.
But I really wanted to come here and share my own variation that I haven’t seen anyone else do yet: Horchata. My husband LOVES Horchata so I thought I’d create my own version as a coffee creamer. It’s a bit more involved as it requires a blender and a fine mesh strainer but, if you also love Horchata, you won’t be disappointed.
You will need:
2 cups of milk (or milk substitute)
1/2 cup of cooked white rice
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp rum extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Start by blending 1/2 cup of cooked rice with 1 cup of milk. Blend to a fine purée. Strain mixture. Return puréed rice to blender and set “rice” milk aside. Add remaining ingredients (sweetened condensed milk, 1 cup of milk, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and rum extract) to puréed rice and blend until combined. Strain again to remove any large chunks. Add to “rice” milk you set aside and shake in a quart sized mason jar. Serve in a hot cup of your favorite coffee. Enjoy!
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!
THIS is DELICIOUS!! My hubby loved it and asked for me to make it again and again.,… Thank you!!

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!!!!!
I made the Sweet Cream and vanilla caramel tonight. I found caramel flavored eagle brand sweetened condensed milk and used it instead of the caramel sauce. They are both fabulous!
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!!

Another good way to make vanilla caramel is to make Dulce De Leche from a can of condensed milk then add your vanilla.
Or just make caramel flavor.

I decided to try this recipe by cutting it in half. I opened a 14 oz can of Condensed Milk, poured it into a measuring cup, only to find out that there is only 10 oz.
You Literally saved humanity today.Me without coffee is dangerous….woke up with no creamer and I knew I had heard about home made creamers with condensed milk..which I had in the pantry….As I sip my coffee, with Vanilla Creamer , that I whipped up..I want to say AHHHHHHHHHHHHH….Thank You !!!!

This highly valuable thought about homemade coffee creamer. The ingredients you shared sounds delicious.
Times are tight, so I found your recipe for French vanilla. OMG I’ll never buy premade creamer again!! I think I might add a little cinnamon for extra flavor. Thank you.
The creamers that called for chocolate syrup, instead I used
pure chocolate extract instead. They tasted just like creamers I would buy in the stores.
