Homemade coffee creamers

I love the flavored coffee creamers, but can no longer afford to buy them. I’m looking for some recipes (preferably sugar-free) for some tried and true yummy coffee creamers.

Standing Up and Scotch Eggs – Whole 30 Day 3

I was busy working on today’s newsletter while I was drinking my coffee and kept breakfast simple. I had a beautiful large tomato ready from the garden and just fixed some scrambled eggs cooked in a little ghee to go with it. Sometimes simple meals are my favorites and it was hard to beat the […]

How To Make Ice Cream Without An Ice Cream Maker

If you don’t have an ice cream maker, don’t fret.  You can make ice cream at home without the aid of either a hand-cranked machine or an electric ice cream maker. How?  All you need is a freezer, and a little muscle. Here’s how to do it. This will work with any ice cream recipe. […]

    I don’t know about flavored coffee creamers, but I do know that you can experiment and make your own flavored coffees very cheaply. If you add cinnamon to the basket of grounds before brewing, you can have cinnamon coffee. One woman told me you can add a peppermint hard candy and make mint coffee. I’d imagine you could also try a butterscotch disc for a twist, too. I’ve also played around with other spices and made a nice pumpkin pie spice coffee with nutmeg and cinnamon. Maybe if you don’t get a creamer recipe, you could try flavoring the coffee instead, although i don’t know how to make hazelnut (my personal fave).

  2. Megan says

    Try non-fat dry milk powder mixed with splenda and cinnamon. The powder will dissolve in the coffee and create a nice creaminess.

  3. Joanne Jones says

    mix equal parts of plain creamer (the big containers of generic are equally good to use) and brown sugar. This will make like a caramel creamer. Just add however much to your coffee and you’re good to go. I like it alot.

        If we stopped eating everything bad, we would give our bodies a chance to really thrive by eating everything good. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, healthy things!

      • Jason says

        Seriously? If we stopped eating everything bad, we would starve? People these days have the most perverse logic. When your diet consists solely of bad foods, you’re actually starving yourself of healthful, nutritious stuff.

        • Rebecca says

          Hi Jason, there’s no doubt that it’s good to eat nutritious foods but there’s also no harm in eating some good old easy, fast junk food, too. And to put it in balance, just remember that without all of those nasty pesticides, you and me wouldn’t even be a live. : )

    ok Everyone. Heres a recipe I just came up with and it turned out great. This recipe would be for Strawberry Vanilla Liquid Creamer. In this recipe I will be making my own condensed milk and just adding the extra ingredients because store bought dairy creamer is bad for you. The ingredients are scary! More then likely you have these ingredients at home.


    1/2 cup boiling water
    1 cup sugar
    2-3 tablespoons of butter
    1 cup of powdered milk
    1 teaspoon of liquid Flavored Vanilla
    1 teaspoon of Liquid Flavored Strawberry


    1. Bring water to a boil
    2. Add butter
    3. Add sugar
    4. Add 1 cup Powdered milk
    5. Add teaspoon of vanilla & teaspoon of Strawberry
    6. Add 1 cup Cold Water

    Stir with wire mixer until dissolved and until is creamy and somewhat thick. Then refrigerate for 8 hours and shake before ever use.

    Enjoy. This Makes my mornings great! I have a sweet tooth so I love this creamer. Since I live in Serbia, Europe they dont have half and half, condensed milk, or flavored powder or liquid creamer, So this recipe came in handy! No crazy chemicals like the non dairy creamer sold in you local grocer.

    Someone please do try this recipe out and let me know what you think? any suggestions you nay have or tips are very welcome.. this is just my own personal blend. When I have the ladies over for coffee they always ask for this and they love it!

    The recipe I use is:
    1 cup instant dry milk
    1/2 cup powdered coffee creamer
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/4 to 1/3 cup store bought instant vanilla pudding mix (or your choice of flavor?)

    Blend ingredients well. Use 1 to 2 T per cup of coffee or to taste.

    I use a blender so everything is real powdery fine. I have also made batches of white chocolate creamer, but the french vanilla is still my favorite.

    • Tonya says

      You are brilliant! I tried it and it tastes so yummy! I am never buying store bought flavored creamer again. Thank you!

  6. Teresa says

    I use the blender. add 1 can evap. milk, 1 1/2 cups 2% milk, 2 Tbsp. cocoa, 1 tsp. vanilla and 1/2 cup sugar. Optional add: 1 tsp almond extract for a hint of Amaretto flavor. Whip it up in the blender and yummm!!! Also, I saw it mentioned that using brown sugar instead of white would add a bit of carmel flavor. Sounds tasty! This makes enough to fill two of the large size store bough creamer containers. I washed and saved a couple of those containers when I quit wasting money on the International Coffee brand creamers. Hope other will try and enjoy this. :)

    • Cora says

      Thank you!!!!! I make a great deal of all my foods from scratch and was feeling quite ‘decadent’ by allowing myself this ‘one’ no no of coffee creamer from the store. Only, the more I did the less good I felt about it. So I googled home made coffee creamer and by and by found your recipe! Gonna try it today as I have all the ingredients, with a change or two like using sucanot instead of sugar and my fresh whole milk instead of 2%. So excited to try!!!!!

      • BFW says

        Kathy, are you suggesting that people stop looking for healthier options? I’m a little confused by your responses. Of course no food is perfect, you’re right, but some foods are still much better than others.

  7. Robyn Lucas says

    If you buy unflavored powdered coffee creamer on sale, a bottle of your favorite bottle of liquid coffee syrup (like Torani or another brand) then you have what you need. The syrup comes sugarfree too.

    Boil 2 cups water, remove from burner, add 1 cup powdered creamer, mix, add flavored syrup to taste. Store in covered container in refrigerator. Add to coffee just as you would add regular coffee creamer.

  8. Melissa Johnson says

    I want to find or create a recipe that uses a sweetener that is natural and doesn’t effect blood sugar levels. Any advice? I thought about Stevia, but I read there were mixed studies about the side effects.
