Make Your Own Flavored Coffee Creamers


Hi everyone!

Do you like all those different flavored creamers? Do you like the price? Of course not! I don’t really use these commercial creamers very often. I have to have a really good coupon and a sale going. But, I like to have a variety of flavors on hand in case I want a cup of something different.

Any of these creamer recipes can be made into an instant flavored coffee mix by adding a 1/2 cup (more or less) instant coffee to the mix. And you can use those leftover frozen coffee cubes to make blended flavored cold coffee treats!

I like to store these mixes in canning jars with labels. But, whatever thrifty airtight containers you find is just fine.

Another yummy thing to do with these flavored creamers is to add to ice cream and milk in a blender for tasty shakes!

Mocha Coffee Creamer
1/2 C Splenda
1 C nonfat dry milk
2 Tb cocoa

Cappuccino Coffee Creamer
1 C hot cocoa mix (I used sugar free cocoa)
3/4 C dry non-dairy creamer
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

A Snowy Night Coffee Creamer
2 C hot cocoa mix
2 C dry non-dairy creamer
1/2 C Splenda
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground nutmeg

 
Amaretto Coffee Creamer
3/4 C powdered non-dairy creamer
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 C Splenda

Cinnamon Coffee Creamer
2/3 C Splenda
2/3 C nonfat dry milk
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Toffee Coffee
1 C powdered non-dairy creamer
1/2 C brown sugar

You can play around with flavors by adding a small drop of different extracts to your coffee.
