It was only a matter of time before I made this popular creamer recipe for the blog!

There are so many great ways to enjoy cinnamon in your coffee. Some people add it to their coffee grounds. Some people add a cinnamon stick to the pot. Me? I make sweet Cinnamon Coffee Creamer!

It’s no secret I am a coffee addict. In addition to my love of coffee…I love all the flavors of coffee creamers. At any given time I could have anywhere from one to half a dozen different flavors of creamers in my refrigerator. So creating my own version is not only easy, but cost effective too!

Homemade Cinnamon Coffee Creamer: so easy to make and you only need a couple of ingredients!

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.

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. It was only a matter of time before another fabulous Shugary Sweets creamer was launched 🙂 Love cinnamon and this would be so good!

  2. I love flavored creamer. I bet this would be delicious in my coffee.

  3. I’ve always wanted to make this! It seems so simple and I much prefer that I know the ingredient list!

  4. I don’t drink coffee, but I bet this would taste amazing as a glaze on some pastries or cake! Or even swirled into some homemade ice cream! 🙂

  5. Cinnamon and coffee is an amazing combination! Usually I use cinnamon when having an instant coffee, but here you gave a great recipe for the espresso :)) Thanks!

  6. I generally drink my coffee black, but this looks delicious! I love adding cinnamon into my coffee beans before grinding!

  7. I love coffee also but it has to have creamer! I’m like you, I often stock up on my favorite flavors and it can get expensive. I will have to try my hand at making my own!

  8. You make the best coffee creamers! I love the cinnamon flavor in my coffee!

  9. I am such a fan of coffee and I love this idea!!! Can’t wait to try it!

  10. Wow. I mean, this is amazing with coffee. And then if that coffee were accompanying, say, a cinnamon bun or crumb cake, you could then hide in a closet for a while and have a private moment. Love it !

  11. You’re the coffee creamer queen! (Among other things, your sash is getting quite long!) What a great addition to a Valentine’s Day breakfast in bed!

  12. I heart coffee and creamer is a must! This looks delicious! Can I tell you a secret? I think I am probably a worse coffee addict then you. I had 4 cups this morning. I couldn’t stop myself. I just love the flavor. I wish I could drink it like water, hehe. I need to make my own coffee creamer. Gonna make this asap! Pinned. 😉

  13. I love all your creamer recipes, especially this one. I’m a huge sucker for cinnamon anything!

  14. I am SO glad you made a Cinnamon coffee creamer!! I have loved all the ones you’ve made so far! Recently I’ve gotten into coffee with Almond milk, cinnamon and Agave. I will definitely have to try this creamer recipe! =)

  15. Charlotte

    Thanks so much for the recipes. I to am a coffee addict and creamer lover. I can’t wait to try them all

  16. Whoaaaa. You are pretty much just the queen of coffee creamers! I don’t even know where to begin, so I guess I”ll just have to try ALL of these. Problem solved. 😀

  17. I have always wanted to make homemade creamer. This one looks so good.

  18. Cinnamon coffee creamer is totally the best! I tried it and it is amazing <3

  19. I like a taste of cinnamon in my coffee. Will try your recipe for sure

  20. Karen

    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!

  21. Mimzy Girl

    This looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing and please tell me where to get a cup like the one shown!

  22. Katie

    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. 

  23. K Rose

    This has a bitter taste, too much cinnamon for me.  

  24. Stanford Turner

    Use Lactose Free milk to greatly extend the use by date.

  25. Anonymous

    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!

  26. Mrs. Mel

    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!

  27. Lila Salvador

    Freezing would cool your coffee down

  28. Cyndi

    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. 

  29. NanaBB

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

  30. Joanne Burgess

    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

  31. Gabi

    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.

  37. Alice

    What percentage of milk did you use?  This sounds delicious!

    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😇
