Homemade Coffee Creamer

Since we were out of the chemical coffee creamer 
{read the ingredients on your bottle}
this morning, I decided to tap into my trusty go-to 
place for a good recipe.


I found a coffee creamer that was quick to make and 
one for which I had the ingredients.
And, being a lover of Vanilla,
I {once again} modified the recipe.
~insert big cheesy grin~

I was also curious about what is
considered French Vanilla, so I looked it up:
According to the Chicago Tribune,
"The name refers not to a vanilla variety 
but to the classic French way of making ice cream using an egg-custard base."

Although I'd like to call it French, we cannot for the above reason. 

Here's what you'll need:

One storage bottle or mason jar with lid, large enough to hold 2.5 cups
One can of condensed milk
1.5 cups of milk {I used 1 cup whipping cream, 1/2 cup milk}
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon of FPH Baker's Vanilla
{I love the vanilla bean flecks in my creamer}


Pour all ingredients into bottle/jar and shake!
It doesn't taste exactly like the chemical kind
but it is VERY good {I'm picky}!
This will keep for about 2 weeks but I'm sure it won't last that long.
I'll be making Amaretto next!

Here's what I was looking out to from the kitchen window this morning 
as I enjoyed my yummy coffee...


See you soon. xo

  1. I'm going to have to make that for my Husband! I'm not a coffee drinker but he LOVES his coffee! How do I get some of your vanilla?

    1. You are welcome! I suggest adding a bit more milk to thin it out a bit. Sometimes these yummy things need a little tweak to our individual taste. I will tell you adding a drop or two of Almond extract to your creamer (in the cup you are drinking) is SO good! Even my husband likes it and he's not much of an Amaretto lover.
