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!

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
Would you happen to know the carb count per tablespoon or how I would figure it out.
I use an app to count nutritional values, such as My Fitness Pal and would recommend it or a similar one. I hope you enjoy it! Thanks!
This is actually very good. I added a spoon of stevia to my cup and it’s amazing. I drink so much coffee and coffee mate that it’s unhealthy so hopefully once I compare the two nutritional values this is significantly less in calories and such that I use this on the regular.
I’m glad you like it, Brittany! Sounds good with the stevia added.
Hello very helpful
would almond milk work in this recipe
Theresa, I actually 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 enjoy!
Love this recipe! Just made it this morning as I remembered a little too late that I was out of my usual creamer. This is fantastic! Since I love my coffee on the sweet side, I did add a few scoops of sugar to a smaller amount, mixed we’ll, then mixed it into the whole creamer container. But even without the added sugar (and really I need to cut back) this recipe is great! Thank you for making my morning enjoyable 😁!
I’m so glad you could have your coffee creamer this morning, Melis. I must have my creamer with coffee, too.
Love this Recipe. Definitely gonna give it a try
I ran out of creamer this morning but wasn’t to worried as the internet has everything 😊 I made your recipe and it is delish. No more store bought creamer for this house.
I’m so glad you found the recipe, Suzanne! I want creamer with my coffee, too.
Do you think this creamer mixture can be frozen?
I haven’t tried freezing this coffee creamer but you should be able to.
I made this recipe this morning and found it very enjoyable! Thank you!
I decided to add one teaspoon of cinnamon to the quart mason jar that I made it in (because I add cinnamon to everything).
I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Lisa. Thanks!
This was delicious!😋 Now with fall right around the corner I can’t wait to start mixing up other recipes for the holidays! I’m really glad I ran out of creamer this morning -Thanks Robyn – do you have any similar recipes using different extracts??? I would love to hear them and give it a try! Thanks again for making my morning!
Thanks, Queenie, I’m so glad you loved this creamer. I haven’t made any other flavors but you can use your favorite flavored extracts to make your own. Just add the same amount as I did with the vanilla extract.
