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!

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!

Here are some of our favorites:

Chocolate Almond:
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
1/2 tsp almond extract

Coconut Caramel:
1 3/4 cups coconut milk
14 oz condensed milk (sweetened or unsweetened)
2 tbsp caramel sauce/topping
1 tsp coconut extract
1 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate Hazelnut:
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 hazelnut extract
1 tsp vanilla extract

Almond Joy:
1 3/4 cups coconut milk
14 oz condensed milk (sweetened or unsweetened)
2 tbsp chocolate syrup or cocoa powder
1/2 tsp almond extract
*If you love Almond Joy, try our ice cream pie!

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

Chocolate Caramel Coconut:
1 3/4 cups coconut milk
14 oz condensed milk (sweetened or unsweetened)
1 tbsp caramel sauce/topping
1 tbsp chocolate syrup or cocoa powder
1 tsp coconut extract

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

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?

  1. I am glad I came across this post. I have not tried making my own creamer, but you made it look so easy. I am going to try making the chocolate hazelnut one first. That has always been a favorite flavor of mine.

  2. What brand of coconut milk do you recommend for the Almond Joy? I can’t seem to find a brand with enough flavor!

    1. Post

      Hi Jamie! The canned coconut milk tends to have the most coconut flavor to me. You can also add a little coconut extract if you want more of a coconut flavor.

  3. Wow! This is such a eeally great idea! It is so perfect I really want to try this!

  4. This is so great. I don’t really drink coffee or use creamer, but I know many who do. This would even make for a wonderful gift this year. I love it.

  5. I’m pinning this because I recently found out “I thought I loved coffee turns out I love creamer.” =)

  6. I will have to share this with my mom. She drinks coffee and uses creamer. I never got a taste for coffee!

  7. I’d love to try to make these homemade creamers. We love coffee but we sometimes get tired of the store-bought creamers that we have.

  8. I have never tried to make a homemade vanilla creamer and I am glad to find this to your article. Thank you!

  9. Holy cow. I ran out of coffee creamer this morning and wanted to try making my own so I went to Pinterest and found this blog. I made the almond joy one because I really like almond and I really like coconut (and I had all the ingredients for this at home already 🙂). I haven’t put it in coffee yet but, whoa, I could drink this plain it is so good! I used the cocoa powder and ended up having to blend it in my Nutribullet to get the chunks out of it but it’s perfect now! It is sitting in my fridge tonight and will be putting it in my coffee tomorrow morning and I cannot wait!!

      Hi Holly! Thanks so much for stopping by! Almond Joy is one of my faves! So glad you loved it! I usually use chocolate syrup which doesn’t get chunky. You could try to heat up the coconut milk a bit first, add the cocoa and whisk and then once it’s cooled down a bit, add the other ingredients. Can’t wait to hear what you think!

  10. The store is out of my favorite creamer, and I never thought to make my own! Thanks for sharing these recipes. I do have sweetened condensed milk!

  11. I love the French Vanilla recipe! I should do this at home soon! Thanks for sharing the info!

  12. Coconut caramel sounds so good. I must give all these creamers a try. I’ll just stop buying creamers at stores.

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

  14. This is really interesting, not a huge cream fan but maybe flavouring might change that

  15. I would definitely love coffee more if I had all these creamers to choose from. So easy to make too!

  16. French vanilla sounds delicious although the rest of the flavours must be amazing as well. Thanks for these tips!

  17. Ohhhhhh this is amazing! I’ve never thought about making my own creamer, love this! I find the store bought ones to be full of crap I don’t want in there, and way too sweet.

    1. Post

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

  18. 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.

  19. This is new to me. I havent tried making my own creamer. Peppermint and pumpkin spice sounds so exciting.

  20. YUM!!! I need to try some of these since I’m now a coffee drinker! These look delicious!!

  21. I don’t drink coffee, but these would be great to add to a light hot chocolate!!! I would love to learn to make vegan friendly options.

  22. Yay! I’m going to try all of these! I love creamer in my coffee, and the idea of being able to make my own sounds fantastic.

  23. Umm these sound incredible! I’ve tried to make a pumpkin spice one once… it was eh. But I’m going to try this recipe!

  24. What?!! How have I never thought to do this before. I love this idea and can’t wait to experiment in the kitchen. Thank you!

  25. I love this homemade creamer so much! Every single ingredient sounds amazing, I’ll definitely be adding this to my list of things to try!

  26. Oh wow! Thanks so much for this. I never thought to make my own creamer. This just gave me an idea to make an almond creamer.

  27. I so don’t like the ready made creamers that are available in the market, they just taste awful. I had no idea it was so easy to make coffee creamers at home. Awesome post and thanks for sharing.

  28. i am so trying this ! it looks so simple yet it gives you the opportunity to play with flavors

  29. Now that would actually be a lot of fun. My husband drinks creamer with his coffee every morning.

  30. Ooh, these sound absolutely divine! I may have to have a go at making the pumpkin spice one myself as I love a good flavoured coffee in the winter months 🙂

  31. These all sound so good!! I think the chocolate almond or chocolate hazelnut is calling my name!

  32. You made it easy and appealing. I love all the flavors you’ve described. And now debate on which to start.

  33. A homemade creamer sounds so delicious! I saved your recipe and I will try making 2 at a time. This got me all excited to try all these different flavors!

  34. Wow this is really useful! I would love try making creamer myself so I’ll have to try this out soon.

  35. You had me at homemade creamer! Can’t wait to try your recipes! So perfect for the fall!

  37. I never thought this can be accomplished just at home. At least I don’t need spending too much buying some outside. This is super good!

  38. This is such a cool idea to make not only for your own use at home, but when entertaining guests! So very unique.

  39. You are creative, for sure! I really love your bottles and labels. What a thrill to do it with your kiddo!

  44. I am going to be trying a few of these recipes, thank you so much for sharing! I’m such a coffee addict and having a easy and cheaper alternative will be so helpful.

  45. Coffee is our jam first thing in the morning. Even the kids like a little cup! These are a time-saver, and, you can make more then one for a variety. Great ideas!

  46. 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!
