DIY Coffee Creamer

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.

DIY Coffee Creamer

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?
