DIY Almond Milk Coffee Creamer

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.

Ingredients for DIY Almond Milk Coffee Creamer:

2 cups

3 T. or artificial sweetener of choice

Directions:

Whisk or blend ingredients together with a hand blender or standard blender  to combine well, until your mixture is thick and frothy.

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!

You will need:

1 cup Water

1 cup Sugar

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

A small pot

Glass bottle

Directions for Easy Homemade Flavored Coffee Syrups:

Place water and sugar in the small pot and simmer on medium heat, stirring frequently until sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat to low and stir occasionally for 10 more minutes, allowing syrup to thicken.

Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract, this is a good base for most syrup flavors as it combines well with mint, butter, cinnamon, and other seasonal spices. Or get creative and swap out the vanilla extract for any other extract to create an entire line of homemade coffee syrups to enjoy year round.

Once your syrup is completely cooled, transfer it to a glass bottle with a pump or a spout, use a funnel to pour without spilling into a bottle. This olive oil bottle from Dollar Tree is the perfect size and dispenses the syrup perfectly into coffees, hot cocoa, or over ice cream.
