Making your own DIY coffee creamer allows you to control the amount and type of sweetener, the kind of milk you use, and best of all the flavoring. So many nowadays are avoiding dairy for one reason or another and are looking for dairy free coffee creamers. Using almond milk as your base gives you a thick rich creamer without the dairy and you can still create your favorite flavors. So try our DIY Almond Milk Coffee Creamer!
During the holidays I like to indulge a little more (don’t we all) and create flavors that highlight the season’s best! It makes your morning coffee during the hectic season that much sweeter. You can also put your DIY Coffee Creamer into a pretty jar with a lid and gift it to your holiday hostess or tuck it into a coffee themed basket as a gift along with our DIY Flavored Coffee Syrup. Don’t forget to make and display several flavors on your holiday coffee bar for guests to enjoy.

DIY Almond Milk Coffee Creamer
Ingredients for DIY Almond Milk Coffee Creamer:
2 cups almond milk
3 T. honey or artificial sweetener of choice
1 tsp. Vanilla and/or other extracts
You will also need:
a hand mixer/blender
a jar or other container with a tight fitting lid for storing creamer
Whisk or blend ingredients together with a hand blender or standard blender to combine well, until your mixture is thick and frothy.
Using a funnel, carefully pour liquid into your glass jar with a tight fitting lid (be sure to sanitize the jar first). I used an upcycled jar from a tea that I purchased at a gas station of all places. You say hoarder, I say I’m frugal.
Place creamer in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Combine this creamer with our homemade simple syrup and you have a delicious coffee combo that everyone will love! To create foam on your morning coffee you grab one of these to whip it up and make your morning cup even better!
