Coffee. Sweet, coffee. It's my favorite part of the day! But sometimes you need something more than just milk or cream in your cup of joe. This cinnamon coffee creamer recipe is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! It's also really easy to make. With fall just around the corner, it's the perfect time to learn how to make homemade coffee creamer. Then you can hoard it all to yourself or share it with your friends. Totally up to you.This is the homemade coffee creamer that my friend, Kristin, used in the geometric brunch shoot that I shared as a fun back to school idea for moms. Because this creamer is the perfect way to treat yo self. And sometimes moms need help doing that. Adding this creamer to your coffee instantly makes you feel like putting on your slippers, finding a cozy blanket and watching your favorite TV shows all day. This homemade flavored creamer recipe served as the base and then was modified, by Kristin, to feature cinnamon and vanilla flavors. Because, yum. There really are an endless varieties that you can make following this basic recipe. I intend to make all different kinds. Except that I will probably gain, like a million pounds (I don't blame the creamer – I have a terrible diet in general, I love me a bag of Trader Joe's Kettle Corn). The key here is good quality ingredients to really let the flavors come through.
How to Make Homemade Coffee Creamer
First you will add the condensed milk and Half & Half to a blender to combine. I have used condensed milk before but never really paid attention to it. I was surprised by the smell. I figured it would smell sweeter or something. But it is a milk based product after all and it smelled, well, milky. Next, add the spices and vanilla to the milks and blend again until well combined. At this point inhale deeply. It smells amazing. And imagine you are swimming in it. Pour your finished homemade coffee creamer in to whatever jar you want to store it in. If you put it in one of these super fancy mason jars it is also ready to gift. Take some to the neighbor. Take some to a teacher. Or hoard it for yourself like I did. I won't judge. Just don't eat it with a spoon. That's crossing the line (but you'll be tempted to I promise!)I am so in love with this cinnamon coffee creamer recipe. I'm almost out and plan on making some more tomorrow. It takes next to no time at all and is crazy good and so worth the calories in my opinion. And when I used it in my iced coffee at the geometric brunch photo shoot, it tasted just like my fave Mocha Cappuccino Blast from Baskin Robbins!!! YUM!That's it. Easy. Kristin says you can also add 1/2 tsp of butter extract (did you know that was a thing?!) to make it taste more like a cinnamon roll!!! No matter what flavor you make, just be sure to shake it up really well before you use it. The cinnamon tends to settle at the bottom of the jar.
