Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed to make almond joy coffee creamer.

Here’s what you need to make this coffee creamer recipe:

  • Milk. I use fat free but any milk you like will do (skim, whole or even nondairy).
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder. Use a high quality cocoa for richest taste.
  • Sweetened condensed milk.
  • Almond extract.
  • Coconut extract. You can buy coconut extract online if you prefer. Also great addition to coconut biscotti and coconut cake!

Tips and Tricks

Homemade almond joy coffee creamer being poured into a mug of coffee.
  • Whisk together half a cup of the milk with the cocoa powder first. This step (while heating on the stove) helps the cocoa fully dissolve into the creamer so you don’t wind up with clumps.
  • Whisk remaining ingredients into the cocoa milk vigorously. Be sure they are fully incorporated.
  • Store in a mason jar. Don’t forget the lid!
  • Shake before serving. The ingredients may separate the longer the almond joy coffee creamer sits. Give everything a good shake to reincorporate.
  • Serve warm or cold. You can add this right to your coffee while it’s still warm or let it chill up in the refrigerator.

Recipe FAQs

How do you store homemade coffee creamer?

Store this coffee creamer in the refrigerator. Make sure to keep it in a container with a lid, like a mason jar or reusable glass bottle.

How long does homemade coffee creamer keep?

I recommend using your homemade coffee creamer within a week.

My creamer separated in the jar! What do I do?

This happens when the sugar begins to settle and is completely normal. Shake the jar vigorously and everything should combine again.

Can I substitute half and half or heavy cream for the condensed milk?

No, the sweetened condensed milk adds the sugar to this coffee creamer. Without it, all you’ll get is the bitter cocoa and extract taste (not exactly appealing).

  1. When I enter the ingredients into my calorie app I get 50 calories for 2 tbs (1serving according to your nutrition guide) and that’s using fat free condensed milk and almond milk. What am I doing wrong?!?

  2. 5 stars
    Thank you thank you thank you! I’ve been buying this and have been wanting to try a recipe for it and I LOOOVE this one!

  3. Yummy! This is such a big hit! My hubby and I are put much of creamer people, but my daughter loves it! Such a great way to start the morning!

  4. I just now made this recipe for the first time. I was out of cocoa powder (lol) but did have chocolate milk on hand so made that substitution without damaging the final product. I had SCM and Almond & coconut extract and it came out great! Just as good as the store bought perhaps even better and was easy and fast to make.
    I’ll try it w/cocoa powder one day, I promise lol.

  5. We have cut our addiction to k cups, too expensive and too pollutioning. There is a separate cup you can buy to go into your Keurig, then you can buy little paper filters that fit Inside that, use your favorite brand of coffee. The plastic insert cup can be used forever, not a throw away, the paper filters go into my compost pile. I buy the insert cup and filters at Walmart, for some unknown reason they are in the new coffee pot department. Have enjoyed reading your coffee creamer creations, but I like a powered one, cold ones cool my coffee off too much. Have a nice day.

  6. MMM…Almond Joy is my favourite coffee creamer too. Unfortunately we do not have that flavour here in Canada, so I have to stock up when over the border! MMM…Can’t wit to make some! (I go through so much coffee creamer in a week too).

  7. I usually just use hot chocolate mix in my coffee but these sound great. Could you freeze the milk mixture in ice cube trays and then add flavors to keep the milk longer?

  8. just made this and omg! i love it!! it makes my already special morning cup of coffee so much more special. thank you for sharing! 🙂

    1. Whoohoo, so glad you enjoyed the coffee creamer. Be sure to try some of the other varieties I’ve got on the blog 🙂

  9. I can’t wait to try this except I think I will Silk almond-coconut milk which is what I drink instead of cows milk. Less calories and better for you. How much more perfect could it get?!
