Homemade ALMOND JOY coffee creamer! So easy to make at home with a few ingredients!

Selling your house is stressful. 

I seem to have forgotten this part of moving. Keeping the house clean is one thing, but having my counters and house bare is another. Not bare of furniture, but of photos, knick knacks, and extras!

You know what else is bare? My kitchen. Prior to putting the house on the market, I kept quite a few small appliances out on my counters. I have a decent sized kitchen so it wasn’t necessarily cluttered, but there were a few things out at all times.

  • coffee pot
  • Keurig (yes, I keep both out, used daily)
  • toaster
  • utensil holder
  • blender (daily smoothies)
  • Kitchen Aid mixer (used almost daily, too heavy to put anywhere)
  • spoon rack
  • coffee supplies (cup rack, sugar, creamer, tea bowl)

Now, I’ve trimmed down to the bare essentials. Kitchen Aid mixer (I’m telling you it’s too heavy to put anywhere). Keurig. It’s a must. I put away my coffee pot. Do you know how many k-cups I consume in one day? It’s pretty ridiculous. (thank goodness for Costco K-cups)

Know what else is ridiculous? The amount of coffee creamer I seem to consume in a week. 

Homemade ALMOND JOY coffee creamer! So easy to make at home with a few ingredients!

While I’ve been making my own creamer from time to time, I do still buy the store bought stuff. However, since I’ve already admitted my numerous amounts of coffee each day, the creamer goes fast! It’s a good thing I always have ingredients on hand to make my own!

Almond Joy Coffee Creamer is one of my favorites to buy! So good. Now, we call all make it home!! This easy recipe can also be made using FAT FREE sweetened condensed milk and fat free (skim) milk. Hey, anyway I can shave a few fat grams I’m game! Means one less tire I have to flip!

What’s YOUR favorite way to enjoy coffee? Do you have a favorite coffee creamer? Leave me a comment, maybe it will be next on my list to re-create!

Yield: 3/4 quart

Almond Joy Coffee Creamer

Prep Time 5 minutes


  • 1 1/2 cup milk (I use fat free)
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp coconut flavoring


  1. In a small saucepan, whisk together 1/2 cup of the fat free milk and the cocoa powder.
  2. Heat on low, whisking continuously until combined (about 3 minutes).
  3. Whisk in remaining ingredients. Pour into a quart sized mason jar, with lid.
  4. Shake vigorously before serving!


  • Store jar of creamer in refrigerator. When determining how long it is good for, I go by the date on my milk carton.
  • you may substitute fat free sweetened condensed milk too
  • for an even CREAMIER version, use heavy cream instead of the fat free milk.

I have quite the coffee addiction! If you do too, you may enjoy following this Pinterest board:

  1. 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.

  2. 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).

  3. 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?

  4. 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 🙂

  5. 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?!
