Homemade Tastes better than Store-bought Coffee Creamer

It’s no secret that homemade always tastes better.

I love figuring out how to make something homemade. Doing this helps me cut out as much processed foods from my family’s diet as possible.

So when I had a craving for french pressed coffee this weekend, I also wanted to make some homemade coffee creamer to go along with it.

My husband and I have quite the sweet tooth. After tons of research on different variations of homemade coffee creamer, I put together this coffee creamer recipe that we are both currently obsessed with.

What to store your homemade coffee creamer in?

This homemade coffee creamer is best stored in an airtight container in the fridge. I prefer to use a glass carafe to store my creamer in the fridge.

If you prefer a less sweet creamer, you can whisk in additional cups of whole milk. If adding additional cups of milk, a larger glass pitcher with lid may be best for storing your homemade coffee creamer in the fridge.

How long until this coffee creamer recipe expires?

This all depends on the expiration date of the milk that you used. When making this coffee creamer, take note of the expiration date on the milk used because this is when your coffee creamer will expire.

Because we are using fresh ingredients, your expiration date will be shorter than that of store-bought coffee creamer that is full of unhealthy preservatives and other weird ingredients.

  1. i typically just use a little milk in my coffee, but i am obsessed with sweetened condensed milk, so i bet i would love this creamer

  2. Yum this sounds amazing! I am sure it is a lot better for you than buying store bought creamer.

  3. oh wow this sounds amazing! I love to be able to make instead of buy at the store!

  4. Woah! I never actually thought to make coffee creamer from condense milk! This would be a much healthier additive than those coffee creamers from the store! And so versatile :)

  5. Just made this today and it is fantastic!

  6. Is it 8cups of milk or 8oz?

    1. The recipe calls for 8 CUPS of milk. This recipe makes a lot of coffee creamer to enjoy with your morning coffee.

  7. Amber Myers says:

    This sounds and looks like a tasty creamer. I will have to keep it in mind!

  8. I do like my coffee with creamer. I will have to make this.

  9. Monica Simpson says:

    I just recently switched to the brands that use real cream instead of oil. A friend pointed out to me that I was consuming so much oil. It grossed me out! I’d love to make my own though. That’ll be my next step.

  10. This sounds great. I’ve never even tried making creamer before. I’m going to have to try this.

  11. Richelle Milar says:

    This looks absolutely delicious! Can’t wait to try this out! My husband would love this for sure!

  12. Oh yum!!! This is so much cheaper than buying it at the store and tastes just as good.

  13. This sounds tasty, I should share this with my son and DiL!!

  14. This sounds so good! I’m not a fan of store bought creamers because so many have an artificial taste. I’ll have to try your recipe.

  15. I love sweet cream coffee creamer. But making a batch is a bit much and I would have to at least divide it into 4 so I can make a smaller batch.

  16. This cofee creamer recipe looks so great. Would love to try it out.

  17. Marie Gizelle says:

    I’ve only used lactose-free milk and heavy cream. looks and sounds yum!

  18. I did this as it’s so much healthier but it’s not sweet enough for me. Add another can of sweetened condensed milk? Can you use half and half or heavy whipping cream?

    1. If it is not sweet enough you could certainly add another can of sweetened condensed milk. Doing so would make the creamer thicker and a lot more sweet for sure. I would not use half and half or heavy whipping cream, I think those would make the creamer very thick and heavy.

      If you don’t want to use another can of sweetened condensed milk you could just add a bit of sugar or your sweetener of choice directly to your prepared cup of coffee along with the creamer. Sometimes when I need a bit more sweetness I just add sugar or brown sugar directly to my coffee, depending on what I’m making.

      Hope this helps. If you decide to change up the recipe a bit, I’d love to hear what you did and how it turned out. Enjoy your coffee!

  19. How long before it goes bad? Also, what size can of condensed milk?
    Thank you!

    1. It will expire on whatever date the milk you use expires. Be sure to make note of that date when making your homemade creamer. The size can of condensed milk used in this recipe is a small 14 oz can.
