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. 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. 😀

  2. 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! =)

    1. Hmmm agave…I just bought some, I need to play around with that to make some healthier creamer recipes!!!

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

  4. 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. 😉

    1. 4 cups?? Oh girl that ain’t nothing. 🙂 I don’t even want to admit how much I drink….but let’s just say it’s more than that most days!! PS..thanks for pinning 🙂

  5. 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!

  6. 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 !

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

  9. 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!

  10. 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! 🙂

    1. You don’t drink coffee??? I thought I said not to tell me that, LOL. It would make a delicious glaze…whisk in some powdered sugar and you’re set!

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

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