In our house, we can’t start our day off without a good cup of coffee, maybe two or three, depending on how good or bad our previous nights sleep was. We’ve tried just about every flavored creamer there is on the market and realized that when we finally found one that we really loved, we were spending a lot of money on something we could easily make ourselves. With just a few ingredient changes, you can make a number of different flavored homemade creamers. You’ll be surprised how easy it really is!

Our easy to follow recipe for homemade creamer in 10 flavors, including french vanilla, almond joy, pumpkin spice, and peppermint mocha.

The idea is to get creative and create your own homemade creamer flavors! The possibilities are endless. You can also adjust the ingredients based on how sweet you like your coffee. Love it sweet? Use a sweetened condensed milk and sweetened almond milk. Prefer it less sweet, get the unsweetened condensed milk and an unflavored milk.  I’ve actually found that I no longer need to add sugar to my coffee, if my creamer is already sweet!

And some of our favorite holiday and fall flavors:

Pumpkin Spice:
1 3/4 cups milk of your choice (almond milk, whole, fat free, etc.)
14 oz condensed milk (sweetened or unsweetened)
3 tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla extract

Peppermint Mocha:
1 3/4 cups milk of your choice (almond milk, whole, fat free, etc.)
14 oz condensed milk (sweetened or unsweetened)
2 tbsp chocolate syrup or cocoa powder
1 tsp peppermint extract

Eggnog:
1 3/4 cups milk of your choice (almond milk, whole, fat free, etc.)
14 oz condensed milk (sweetened or unsweetened)
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp rum extract
1 tsp vanilla extract

Once you create your homemade creamers, they can be stored in glass bottles (we actually reuse bottles from drinks we pick up at the grocery store when we’re in a hurry). Although we go through creamer pretty quickly in our house, I recommend using a marker to write the expiration date on each bottle (I use the date from the milk we use). Also, if you want to get fancy, you can get this adorable label maker on Amazon for less than $10 and create your own labels for each flavor!

Which flavor is your favorite?

    My husband prefers homemade creamer. It is healthier and makes a cup of coffee more special.

      Yes! That’s what I love about making my own. I can control the sweetness and I know exactly what’s going into them!

    Chocolate Hazelnut and Coconut Caramel sounds delicious. I will make those two first. I have to make sure I make large batches of them. I know even my kids would be wanting to try those home made creamers.

    I love this and already sent it to my friends! I am a coffee addict and I love flavors, but I can’t do traditional creamers. They taste weird to me, but I also grew up with just sugar and milk in my coffee. I adore the natural variety I can find in stores now, however they are pricey! I am going to have to try this, thank you so much for sharing!
