Homemade Coffee Creamer

I love Saturdays; waking at my leisure, reading the paper, making breakfast, and enjoying several cups of COFFEE!  Coffee and I have been buddies since my college days. The caffine in coffee used to keep me awake so I could keep up with my reading, but I’m immune to the buzz now and it’s the flavor I enjoy day after day, especially on the weekends. I like to dress up my coffee with flavors. Vanilla and almond are my favorite, so those are the flavors I chose for my creamers. One recipes is a dry powdered creamer and the other a liquid creamer. Both Yummy!!

Homemade Powdered Creamer

  • 1 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup dry powdered milk
  • 1 teaspoon powdered vanilla
  • 1/3 cup xylitol OR 1/3 – 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Put all ingredients in a blender. Mix into a fine powder. Store in an airtight container. I use a jelly mason jar. This recipe can easily be doubled. My blender doesn’t mix well with mass, so I make small batches.

Three ingredients for a liquid homemade creamer.

Homemade Liquid Creamer

  • 1 1/2 cups of milk (your choice, my latest batch I made it from powdered milk by following the packaged directions)
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (I use fat-free)
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

Put all ingredients in a blender.  Mix until well incorporated.  Store it in the refrigerator.

I bought some oil and vinegar jars to store the creamer.  Looks so pretty when serving =)

Homemade liquid and powdered creamers can’t be any easier to make!  Give it a try =)

    Wow that was super easy! Thank you for sharing because I am definitely going to be using this. My hubby drinks coffee with cream/creamer often enough for me to want to find an alternative to those Baileys and CoffeeMate creamers he keeps picking up in the supermarket! The liquid one looks soooo delicious! Yum.

    • You can try different flavorings to mix it up,and unlike some of the ingredients listed on store bought creamers, we actually know wheat we’re putting in our body! I see on so many products ingredients with “dextra…something or another”.

    Definitely better than store bought creamers and you know what’s in it. Agree, those jars are perfect.

    Hi. I can not wait to make the powdered creamer. This posting was so well explained than the others I looked at, they also said coconut oil but it was confusing on how that would turn into powder. How long will the powder creamer last and does it need to be refrigerated?
