Why This Creamer is Best

I try to always keep a jar or two of homemade coffee creamer in my fridge. All it takes is a splash or two to turn a simple cup of coffee into a special treat.

  • This coffee creamer is smooth and creamy, never gritty!
  • Makes your coffee taste like a cinnamon roll.
  • Better than a fancy coffeehouse drink–and less pricey!
  • Made with ingredients you recognize. No preservatives or high fructose corn syrup like store bought versions.
  • It takes just a few minutes to make!

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed to make cinnamon coffee creamer.

Here’s what you need for this creamer recipe.

  • Sweetened condensed milk
  • Whole milk – You can use skim milk too but it won’t be as creamy.
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Light brown sugar
  • Vanilla extract – I love using my homemade vanilla here.
  • Butter extract – Gives the creamer a cinnamon roll-like flavor!

Easy Instructions

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.

The sugar dissolves, but flecks of cinnamon still separate out of the cream when the mixture is stored in the fridge.

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. Helps make your coffee creamer taste more like a cinnamon roll.

Recipe FAQs

How long does homemade coffee creamer keep?

Look at the expiration date on your milk. Use that to determine how long you can store the coffee creamer.

Can I use this coffee creamer recipe for iced coffee?

Yes, homemade cinnamon coffee creamer is a delicious addition to any hot OR iced coffee!

How can I make this lower fat?

You can make a lower fat version of today’s creamer recipe by using skim milk instead of whole milk. It will be thinner but still taste good!

How can I make this nondairy?

I haven’t tested the recipe with nondairy versions so I can’t speak to the results.
You could use any plant based milk in place of the whole milk (soy, almond, oat etc). For the sweetened canned milk, I would try sweetened condensed coconut milk (if you don’t mind a little coconut flavor in your creamer).

I don’t have butter extract. Will the creamer still taste good?

Yes! The butter extract heightens the cinnamon and adds a richness reminiscent of freshly baked cinnamon rolls. You can leave it out and still have a delicious cinnamon creamer to add to your coffee.

  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!
