Store bought coffee creamer has never been my thing. I’ve never truly liked the taste of it. It’s no secret that homemade always tastes better. I love figuring out how to make something homemade to cut out as much processed foods from my families 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. This recipe only requires a few ingredients. It is both satisfyingly sweet and creamy with a hint of vanilla goodness that will have you looking forward to your next morning cup of joe.
Homemade Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer Recipe
- 5 cups whole milk
- 2 cans sweetened condensed milk
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
In a large bowl, whisk together whole milk, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla extract until thoroughly combined. Transfer to a container with a lid. Store in the refrigerator. Add as little or as much as you like to your favorite brewed coffee.
*Make note of the expiration date on the whole milk, this is how long your homemade sweet cream coffee creamer will be good for as well.
I find that when I use this coffee creamer in my brewed coffee that I don’t have to add any additional sweetness because this recipe contains just the right amount of sweetness that I crave on groggy mornings. If you prefer a less sweet creamer, you can whisk in additional cups of whole milk.
