Homemade Coffee Creamer makes a quick, easy, and delicious treat for your coffee! Made with just four ingredients and ready in minutes!
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.
Here’s my homemade coffee creamer recipe. I hope you love it as much as I do!
