So you all know I’m completely addicted to coffee. But did you know I also have a coffee creamer addiction?

No joke. I’m the one that heads to the grocery store for milk and coffee creamer. We run out of creamer as often as we run out of milk!

And I’m not picky when it comes to my creamer. I’ll buy whatever is on sale. I’ll buy any flavor (at least once)!

But, while I may have three different flavors creamer on hand at any one time, French Vanilla coffee creamer is always in my fridge.

It’s my “stand by” creamer. It goes with all flavors of coffee. It satisfies that crazy sweet tooth of mine. It’s the jelly to my peanut butter. Too far?

Anyways, last year I shared my favorite homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer. And it occurred to me, why haven’t I shared the easiest flavor, French Vanilla?

Seriously, three ingredients. Done. And by using fat free sweetened condensed milk with fat free milk…you got it, you now have Fat Free French Vanilla Coffee Creamer.

Actually, I’m not sure what makes this “french.” I get the vanilla part. But why is it called french vanilla? I’m not quite sure. I suppose I could google it for all of you, but you all probably don’t care either!

How to make homemade coffee creamer:

  • Combine all 3 ingredients in large mason jar. Shake vigourously. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • I like to store mine in quart size mason jars. Perfect for keeping in the fridge. You do need to stir or shake this creamer before each use, as the sugary milk sinks to the bottom (which makes a mason jar all that more useful)! I found some cute chalkboard label stickers at Target and use them on my jars. If company comes over, pouring into a cute pitchers is simple!
  • This also makes a great gift idea for that coffee addict friend or hostess. Maybe with a cute mug and specialty bag of coffee (do you need my address??).

    I save my creamer containers and use them for dry goods such as rice and small grain cereals instead of keeping them in boxes. (Seen this on Pinterest ).
    So instead of using a Mason jar, would the creamer stay just as fresh in the plastic creamer container or would you suggest just getting the mason jars?
    This sounds great and can’t wait to try it!!

  5. I just need some good quality vanilla extract.

    French vanilla is called “French” because of the way the French prepared vanilla ice cream using a custard base.  I’ve found a French Vanilla Blend extract that I always substitute for plain vanilla extract and it’s a wonderful improvement (a teaspoon in pancake batter is heavenly).

    OMG, Aimee! I ran out of creamer and I had seen this on your page. I usually have a can of condensed milk so I thought I would give this a try. It is so good and so easy! Thanks

  8. Robyn

    Hey there! We loved the vanilla creamer. Any idea if you can use coconut milk and coconut condensed mil to make it dairy free!?! Thanks!! 

  9. Karen Sabbah

    Is there a way I can make it dairy free? Using shot or almonds milk instead of cows milk?

  10. This is an excellent recipe – however instead of the skim milk, I substituted any variety of non-dairy coffee creamer -for the skim milk and achieved the same results and a longer shelf life. There’s also a frozen non-dairy coffee creamer that is less expensive. Try it !!!

    Aimee, I bought the sweetened condensed milk several weeks ago and never got around to making this recipe till this morning. OMG, this is the BEST creamer I have had in my life…EVER!!! Thanks for posting this recipe, it’ll make me get out of bed easier every morning!

    It is Feb. 2018 and I am just reading this post! First thanks for this post. the photos and accompanying blog post were refreshing! I just made this recipe and tweaked it to my preference and dietary needs. I always love my creamers but hated the lack of nutrition. I always have evaporated and sweetened condensed milk on hand. I did a can of the sweetened condensed milk, 1/2 cup of hot water, 1 cup of 2% milk half of a split vanilla bean, 1 tsp each of vanilla and almond extract and about a tsp of cinnamon. Delicious perfection!!! The vanilla bean makes me feel fancy! I put it into Myfitnesspal the serving size of 3.2 tbsp (I like a lot of creamer) is only 72 calories with 12 grams of sugar. Per tablespoon it is 24 calories per tablespoon and 4 grams of sugar much less than the hazelnut coffeemate in my fridge! I based it off of a 32 ounce mason jar having 20 servings. Of course if you only add 1 tablespoon of it you could get 64 servings…. but it is too delicious for just a tablespoon!!! GREAT recipe Thanks so much…. sorry if this sounded nerdy 🙂
