I am ALWAYS running out of coffee creamer! I try to only buy it when it is on sale and I have a good coupon. Because that is not as often as I’d like, I frequently run out. I have a pretty adequate stockpile of many things but creamer…not so much. Heading to the store just to get coffee creamer costs on gas and I end up buying more at the store than what I really need so I decided to try to make my own coffee creamer and see how it compared to the store bought kind I’m always running out of.
It was really easy. This is what the recipe called for:
14 ounce can of low fat sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups of milk ( I used skim)
1 tablespoon vanilla
(this recipe called for vanilla, but I used some caramel flavoring I picked up on clearance for $.50)
Pour all the ingredients in a mason jar and shake well. Store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Ok, so I am sort of a newbie at coffee…consequently, I am somewhat particular about the coffee and creamer I use and this was pretty good. I’m not sure that skim milk is the best choice…I’m sure it would be creamier if it was 2% or whole but this is a good low fat option. Enjoy!
