Homemade Vanilla Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer

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!

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.

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.

Oh, and this darling jar? I got it at Michael’s for like $5 bucks. It holds enough for almost a week of coffee creamer for my husband and me, and I love that I can reuse it every week.

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.

YUM! I made this with skim instead of whole milk because that's what I had on hand, and it is *still* delicious. Can't imagine how it'd taste with whole. <3 I think I've just developed a very bad coffee habit. XD

Can you offer your idea or opinion on adding chocolate to this? I was thinking of offering vanilla cream and mocha cream at a breakfast.

I think that would be awesome! Personally, I'd use something like ovaltine or nesquick and then omit some of the sugar in the recipe. Great idea!

Can I half this recipe? Does it turn out the same deliciousness?

what is the serving size? I see that it servers 24 and it's one serving, but one serving of what? Tablespoons, teaspoons, cups. How many of each? 114 calories for 2 tablespoons or 1 or 114 calories for 1 cup?

I haven't measured the final volume that this makes. If the nutrition information is ultra important to you, I might just go with a commercially prepared coffee creamer. :D The final count also depends on if you use cream or half-and-half. Hope that helps!

I will be making this this week and although I’m afraid to ask, lol, and it can’t be worse than the crap sold in stores, do you have the nutrition facts of this by any chance?

I don't off-hand, but I'll try and put those in there shortly!
