How to make homemade Coffee Creamer

In past recipes, I’ve used the stove top to help combine the brown sugar and seasonings to the milk. This helps the flavors combine evenly, no one wants a gritty creamer.

Unfortunately, cinnamon is a bark. And it doesn’t combine very well.

I tried several suggestions according to Google…including whisking the extracts with the cinnamon (supposedly the alcohol content helps dissolve the cinnamon). Well. It doesn’t work. At least it didn’t work for me.

So….I still heat the seasonings and sugar with the milk on the stove top. I do this because you want to make sure your brown sugar dissolves completely.

I store this creamer in a mason jar with a tight lid. That way I can give it a good shake before each serving, this helps evenly disperse all the cinnamon that inevitably falls to the bottom of the jar!

One more secret? I used butter flavoring. It comes in a little bottle like vanilla extract and can be found on the same shelf in the grocery store.

It takes this creamer to the next level. This isn’t just Cinnamon Coffee Creamer….nope. Now it’s Cinnamon ROLL coffee creamer. You’re welcome.

Want to lighten this up, or following a low carb diet? Try using this sugar free condensed milk recipe instead!

How do you like YOUR coffee? (and don’t even tell me you don’t like coffee….we can’t be friends. Kidding. Kinda.)

  1. Hi Aimee, I may have a solution to your gritty Cinnamon dilemma! LorAnn Oils make a Cinnamon Oil. Maybe along with the butter and vanilla extract you can add a drop or two to the creamer. They are very intense so you wouldn’t need allot. I purchased mine  at Walmart. There are all kinds of flavors and I think they are intended for candy making. Give it a go, I think you’ll be surprised. I think you can google LorAnn Oils if you can’t find it locally….. Good Luck OBTW the coconut is divine?

    1. You can use whatever you like. For a thinner, healthier version use skim. For a thicker creamer, use whole milk.

  2. Put the cinnamon in your coffeemaker with a clean filter. Add .5 to 1cup water. Remove pot and hit start and let sit for a few min and then place the pot back and the filter will keep the cinnamon and give the flavor out into the water. Make it strong and then add to the milk to taste.

  3. Hi there. I would love to make coffee creamer, but with powdered milk. Do you have a recipe for cinnamon powdered coffee creamer for me. Thank you

  4. Any idea how many calories is in a serving?? Just wonder trying to count them. I love the sound of your recipe. 

  5. This creamer sounds so delicious! I am one of those heathens who doesn’t like coffee, though, so I would maybe use it in a chai tea or, as someone else suggested, as a drizzle on coffee cake or something. 

  6. I would love to make these for the house as my daughter and I both are coffee fanatics, BUT she’s lactose intolerant! Do you know what I could substitute so I could make this? Thank you so much!

  7. Ever tried freezing these into ice cube trays to extend the shelf life?  In thinking just pop a couple out of the freezer when I have a cup of coffee.  I love the idea of homemade creamer.  Have you ever read the ingredients list on the store stuff?? yikes!

    1. I haven’t tried freezing them, but that sounds pretty awesome. If you do it, let me know how it turns out!!

  8. Couldn’t a cinnamon stick be used? I’m thinking, if allowed to steep for a while, it might impart some flavor but way less grit. 

  9. I tried this one and must say I’m disappointed 🙁 I love cinnamon and just couldn’t get it to dissolve, so sad! I love all your other coffee creamers, maybe it’s just a fluke!
