I love a cup of rich, delicious coffee in the mornings! There’s just nothing like it. And being able to make my own homemade coffee creamer is just about the best thing ever!

You see, when I was a little girl, my grandmother would let me have a little cup of coffee in the mornings with her for breakfast. She enjoyed her coffee on the lighter side, with plenty of cream and sugar. For my cup, she’d start it like her own, but then add even more cream so that I had we jokingly call a little coffee with my cream!

A few years ago, I decided enough was enough. I cut out my beloved creamer with my morning coffee to have more control over what I was drinking. I went cold turkey and did great for months. Right up until I tasted a cup of coffee at my sister’s house. She’d added just a dash of creamer to my cup and with one sip I knew I’d been missing that rich, creamy flavor for too long.

Yes, I can still have a cup of coffee without adding creamer to it from time to time – especially iced – but truth be told, there’s still too much of that little girl that sat at my grandmother’s kitchen table sipping on coffee so light you’d swear it just barely even had a splash of coffee in it!

But that day at my sister’s, I decided right then and there that I would start making my own flavored creamers. I tried so many combinations, but finally settled on this homemade coffee creamer recipe that I make most often.

  1. OMGosh! I LOVE this simple recipe. I can’t wait to try it! And its also super easy to make this NON-GMO, by buying organic milk and heavy cream. Thank you so much for sharing this. I’m definitely going to try it! I already KNOW this will be five stars, so I’m rating it now. 🙂

  2. This sounds really good, but I’m lactose intolerant. I can use lactose-free milk, but what can I do about the cream? I’m not familiar with a cream that comes lactose-free. I also like the fact that you can control the sweetness of this. I usually use regular Coffee-Mate as opposed to the flavored ones because they are too sweet.
    Thanks for all your recipes.

    • Hi Joanna,
      I have a couple of options for you that I think would work well. First, you can use all milk (lactose-free) in place of the milk and the cream. The consistency won’t be as thick as if using cream, but it works well. Also, I actually also make a dairy-free version from time to time! To make it, I use almond milk and the thick, creamy portion from a can of coconut milk. You’ll save the liquid, watery portion from the can for other uses. I add these to a small saucepan over medium heat, along with the maple syrup. Stir until well combined and creamy. Then, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour into a glass jar with a tight fitting lid and store in the refrigerator for up to a week! I hope you these work for you! xo

  3. Can the maple syrup but substituted with honey? Can I use both?0

    • Hi Stacey,
      It can! I would recommend heating it if you use honey as it is a bit thicker than the maple syrup. To heat, add the milk, cream, and honey to a small saucepan over medium heat. Stirring constantly until the honey has “melted” and is well combined with the liquid ingredients. Then, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. I also noticed that the weight of the honey would cause it to settle to the bottom in the refrigerator throughout the week. A good vigorous shake of the bottle takes care of it, but did find that with using the maple syrup I didn’t have to do that as much. I hope that helps!

  4. Does this have a strong maple flavor? I’ve been making creamer for my husband for about a year and he loves anything maple.

  5. How would sweetened condensed milk work in recipe for coffee creamer? Would you use the heavy cream or milk?

    • Hi Peggy,
      Great question! I love my homemade sweetened condensed milk in coffee creamer, too! It works fabulously and is my sister’s favorite way for my homemade coffee creamer! Just use it in place of the maple syrup called for in this recipe (or to your desired level of sweetness). I don’t reduce the amount of milk or cream in the recipe. Of course, you could also just use the sweetened condensed milk right by itself if you like!

  6. Will this taste anything like the liquid French Vanilla creamer I love so much, but need to stop using?

  7. THANKS ROBYN, I USE COFFE CREAMERS AND THIS WILL BE A NICE REPLACEMENT.

  8. What if we don’t like vanilla flavor would you be able to put like caramel to make a Caramel version

  9. very nice recipe. Thanks for sharing it.

  10. Been making this since I first found it hubby loves daughter made it make it all the just love it

  11. This recipe sounds awesome. I want to make my own coffee creamer instead of using coffee mate. But I just wondered how many calories it has per serving. Would you please let me know? I will look forward to hearing from you

  12. Would you happen to know the carb count per tablespoon or how I would figure it out.
