I live on coffee. You may think I am exaggerating but I’m not. It is an addiction. If drinking coffee is wrong then I don’t want to be right. Here’s the catch. I really only drink iced coffee. Even in the winter I will always choose iced. I don’t love any hot beverages, really. Don’t get me wrong, if my choice is no coffee of hot coffee I will choose hot, of course.
I like some sugar and creamer in that iced coffee and I can sip on it all day. I make it extra special with my DIY homemade caramel sauce, too. Delish! This recipe came up when I reached for my coffee creamer and found that it had been finished off! Eeek! Luckily, this recipe is super simple and versatile.
You will need:
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
1 and 3/4 cup milk (whole, skim whatever you have on hand works!)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
This recipe is for a french vanilla flavor but, like I said, this is a versatile recipe. Instead of the vanilla extract you can add cinnamon, chocolate, caramel or a combination of any of these. Seriously, the options are endless.
Also, if your sweetened condensed milk comes in a different size can; no worries! Basically, it’s one part milk and one part sweetened condensed milk plus some flavoring. Pour into a glass container (a mason or canning jar is perfect) and shake what your Momma gave you. You can use this in hot or iced coffee. It’s inexpensive and really good. I don’t even have to add sugar when using this creamer.
Do you prefer cold or hot coffee?
