Maple Vanilla Coffee Creamer



Please excuse the delay in posting! I teased this recipe on Facebook yesterday and then got busy and didn't get it written and posted. We have had a super busy weekend and this is the first time I've had a chance to actually sit down at the laptop! Yesterday, we spent the entire day (er, night I guess - we finished at 2:30am this morning...) rebuilding our pantry. I can't wait to show you - it looks SO good and is so much more functional! And of course Sundays are always busy days for me.

I don't know about you, but I'm a coffee addict. I used to only drink it black but in recent years, have seen the beauty in adding some flavored creamer to it as well. Just standing at the dairy section at the store can be incredibly overwhelming with all the flavors now available! Since mass produced flavored creamer has it's fair share of preservatives and ingredients you can't pronounce, I was pretty excited to try a homemade version!

Let me just go ahead and warn you now - you're gonna want to whip up a few batches because before you know it, it's gone. Especially if you drink iced coffee by the gallon like I do! This will last a couple of weeks in the fridge but I doubt it'll stick around that long.

The next time you find yourself out of flavored creamer, grab a few ingredients from your pantry and whip some up ~ just 4 ingredients {and delicious}!


Maple Vanilla Coffee Creamer
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup whole milk, half & half, or heavy cream (I used soy milk)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a mason jar, or other container with a tight lid, add all the ingredients. Close lid securely and shake well until blended. Refrigerate for at least an hour before enjoying. {you may need to shake it briefly before pouring each time - the condensed milk is thick and likes to sit near the bottom}

    1. Absolutely! I plan to play around with it myself. I think you could switch out any extract you want, tasting as you go. For instance, you could just hazelnut extract instead of vanilla if you're a hazelnut fan.

  3. Do you know how long this would last in your refrigerator?

    1. I would guess it would depend on the age of your milk/half in half, but I'm no expert. :( This makes a mason jar worth and it's never lasted longer than a week for me since I drink iced coffee like it's water. Sorry I couldn't be more specific!
