Homemade Vanilla Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer is super simple to make, has only 4 ingredients, and can totally replace the store-bought versions in your fridge. I love whipping up a batch of this to use all week in my coffee!
Homemade Vanilla Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer
I can’t even tell you how much I love flavored coffee creamers because it would be embarrassing. It isn’t quite as much as I love coffee, but pretty close. I was pretty excited when they came out with the “real cream” kinds – but even those don’t compare to what you can do with this recipe.
Enjoy in our Cold Brew Coffee!
Why make your own coffee creamer?
The real beauty of this is how simple it is. Only 4 ingredients, and amazingly customizable. If vanilla isn’t your thing, substitute some other extract. Hazelnut would be amazing. Add a touch of almond extract. You decide!
I stuck with plain old vanilla for mine because that is my very favorite. I even prefer vanilla ice cream.
I’m weird, I know. Embrace it.
Try this Copycat Reese’s Coffee Creamer too!
Do you know what goes great with this coffee creamer? My homemade cold brew coffee, that’s what. And when you put those two things together do you know what you get? A pretty good copycat, and my version of my new favorite Starbucks drink – my Homemade Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew.
“This recipe is my go-to for coffee creamer and the only recipe you need for having the most delicious iced coffee at home! I make a large pitcher of it every week. I fill a cup to the top with ice, brew Green Mountain iced vanilla caramel coffee on the iced setting of my keurig, and add a good splash of this creamer…best iced coffee ever. First to get me to kick my expensive Starbucks habit!”-Brittany (from Pinterest)
