I like to add flavored coffee creamer to my morning coffee, but I’m not so fond of all the funky ingredients in the commercial versions. I figure if I can’t pronounce an ingredient then it surely can’t be very healthy. Don’t believe me? Check the ingredient label next time you shop.
My Homemade Vanilla Creamer satisfies my desire for a flavored creamer without all the mystery ingredients. All it takes is 3 ingredients and 5 minutes – seriously, that’s it! And, I can pronounce every single ingredient! And the taste – rich, creamy and delicious.
With the holiday baking season nearly upon us, now is the time to stock up on sweetened condensed milk. I’ve seen it on sale for as low as $1 a can. If you pick up a few extra cans, you can always make my Homemade Slow Cooker Dulce de Leche. I usually purchase the vanilla and Half & Half at Costco for the best pricing.
HOMEMADE VANILLA CREAMER
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups Half & Half
4 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 pint-sized mason jars (or container of choice)
1. Divide the sweetened condensed milk evenly between the 2 mason jars.
2. Add 2 Tbsp. vanilla extract to each jar.
3. Add 1 cup Half & Half to each jar.
4. Stir until mixture is blended completely.
5. Store in refrigerator. May need to stir or shake before using.
