Milk of Choice

To make your homemade coffee creamer extra creamy and delicious, feel free to use whatever milk product you prefer! I personally like to use half and half, but you might find that whole milk, skim milk, heavy cream, almond milk, coconut milk, or another option works best for you. Have fun experimenting and figuring out which taste you love the most!

Sweetened Condensed Milk

Sweetened condensed milk is how you make this simple recipe sweet. You can get canned sweetened condensed milk from your local grocery store, or make this homemade coffee creamer recipe even more custom by making your own sweetened condensed milk.  If you're looking for a way to customize your sweetener to fit your dietary needs then this recipe for sweetened condensed milk is perfect and super easy to follow!

Vanilla Extract

Vanilla is definitely one of my favorite flavors! It's so versatile and can be used in a variety of recipes. From cakes to cookies, its natural sweetness pairs perfectly with coffee to create a delicious blend of flavors. That's why I love using it in this simple homemade coffee creamer recipe. It makes the perfect addition to my morning cup of joe and adds a lovely sweetness without overpowering the flavor of the coffee. Plus, I can customize the creamer just the way I like it! Whether I want to add a little more sweetness or a little more flavor, this recipe lets me do just that. I'm sure you'll love this homemade creamer recipe with its hint of vanilla as much as I do!

How to make homemade coffee creamer

This coffee creamer is probably one of the simplest things to make. All you have to do is put all the ingredients together in a 32-oz mason jar, and shake. I don't think it could get more simple than that! You can use whatever container is easiest for you, my preference is mason jars. With a recipe such as this, a mason jar is easiest because it allows you to mix everything quickly.
