French Vanilla Coffee Creamer

Making homemade coffee creamer is a cinch! Especially when it comes to French Vanilla Coffee Creamer recipe. Only three ingredients, ready in minutes, and you can make it FAT FREE!

I’m no stranger to homemade coffee creamer recipes. If you want to try some new flavors, this Creme Brulee Coffee Creamer is rich and inviting. Another favorite is Chocolate Marshmallow Coffee Creamer. As delicious as it sounds!

Why Make your Own Creamers

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?

Tips and Tricks

Step by step photos showing how to make french vanilla 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??).

Recipe FAQs

What is the difference between vanilla and french vanilla?

Typically it refers to ice cream, and the custard like finish. You can add a touch of Hazelnut syrup to this french vanilla creamer recipe for that rich flavor.

How long does coffee creamer last in the refrigerator?

Typically I would recommend using within 7 days.

Why did my homemade creamer separate in the jar?

This happens as the sugars begin to settle. No worries, just shake it up before using in your coffee!

  1. I love your idea about making this part of a coffee gift basket idea for neighbors and friends. I know a few who would definitely enjoy this. Thanks!

  2. FYI ~~ true ‘French Vanilla’ has a sweet, buttery taste that is easily identified and quite different from regular vanilla. Although the vanilla flavor is slightly predominant, the butter taste is right there as well and they blend beautifully!

  3. Love this!!! I made some of this yesterday and loved it so much that I decided to put it in the freezer is ice cubes so that I could keep it longer. I only use around 2 tablespoons at a time so they ask you to make perfect sense. Thank you so much. I will definitely be checking out your other recipes.

  4. Thanks for posting this! I really like vanilla creamer with my coffee, but my mom only ever drinks BLACK coffee and never keeps creamer around. This stuff is delicious, and I can have some creamer around for my coffee! I might be able to actually drink some coffee with her now! ^U^

  5. I made the creamer but the condensed milk was like fudge consistency and it never miseducating all the way in what do I do?

    1. Sounds like you have a bad can of condensed milk. It will be thick, but not so thick as fudge.

  6. 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 🙂

  7. 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!

  8. 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 !!!
