Coffee Creamer Base


Start saving money with a basic coffee creamer that can be flavored any way you like.


1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk

1¾ cup milk, half-and-half, or cream

Pour ingredients into a quart container with a tight-fitting lid.

Shake vigorously until milks are thoroughly combined.

Use the expiration date on the milk container to gauge how long to keep your coffee creamer.

Almond or soy milk may be substituted. The final product will be thinner, but will last longer in the refrigerator.


Optional flavor add-ins can be added to the container before shaking:

French Vanilla – Add 2 tsp. vanilla extract

Chocolate – Add 3 Tbs. chocolate syrup

Mocha Candy Cane – Add 2 Tbs. chocolate syrup and 1 tsp. peppermint extract

Hazelnut – Add 2 tsp. hazelnut extract
