Homemade Gourmet Coffee Creamer

Nothing beats a perfect cup of coffee!  Learn to make your own gourmet coffee creamer and enjoy your coffee on the cheap!

We love our coffee! I tend to drink mine
black but every other family member
likes to drink their coffee with creamer.
Liquid creamer is fairly expensive,
especially when seven people are
using it each day.

Our 11-yr-old daughter, Caylie, wanted
to be our "Vanna White" for this
tutorial in which we will show
you how to make our homemade
gourmet coffee creamer for much
less than commercial creamer.

You will need a few simple 
ingredients from your pantry for this
delicious recipe

1) 12 ounce can of evaporated milk 

2) 1/2 to 3/4 cup packed brown sugar

3) 1 to 2 tsp cinnamon and
1 tsp vanilla extract.

4) Mix ingredients in a medium saucepan.

5) Blend over medium heat until steamy.

6) Recipe makes approximately
1 1/2 cups.  Store in refrigerator
and use as desired. 
You can use white sugar instead
of brown and use a different flavor
of extract if you prefer.
We like this version a lot; the kids
think that it tastes and smells
like a cinnamon roll.

This recipe costs less than $1 to
make.  Cheap and Yummy!

Spoon some of the foam from the whisked
creamer on top of your coffee for an
extra special touch!

  1. Not heard of kids drinking coffee. I wasn't allowed when I was growing up.

    Your creamer sounds decadent indeed! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    1. Your quite welcome LindaG! It is very rich tasting.

      Yes, my children drink coffee, of course the younger ones of the bunch have more milk or cream than coffee but by the time they have turned ten years old or so, they've all seemed to transition into "grown up" coffee.

      We do limit them to a cup or two a day but if truth be known, it's more to make sure there is enough left for the grown ups!

      Thanks for visiting! Have a great night!

    2. I never received your reply for some reason, but thank you!
      Hope you have a blessed week. ♥
