Homemade French Vanilla Coffee Creamer

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

I’m the one that heads to the grocery store for milk and coffee creamer. We run out of store bought coffee creamer as often as we run out of milk!

And I’m not particular about my creamer. I’ll purchase whatever coffee creamer flavors are on sale. I’m willing to try any taste 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.

Anyway, 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?

Homemade Coffee Creamer 3 Ingredients

Three ingredients for french vanilla coffee creamer.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk– you can use any variety, including fat free!
  • Milk- use what you love. Keep it fat free and use skim milk, make it creamier and use whole milk or heavy whipping cream!
  • Vanilla Extract– adds the right amount of rich, vanilla flavor to the creamer! Almond extract adds a delicious depth of flavor too!

By using fat free sweetened condensed milk with fat free milk…you got it, you now have Fat Free French Vanilla Coffee Creamer.

  • Combine all 3 ingredients in large mason jar. Shake vigourously. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • I keep mine in quart mason jars, great for storing in the fridge.
  • You should mix this creamer before using it because the sweet milk settles at the bottom. Using a mason jar can make it easier to mix.
  • 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??).

  • 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.
  • Use regular sweetened condensed milk and whole milk for a thicker, creamier coffee creamer if desired.

  1. Aimee, I’m so happy to have found you🤗 I’ve just made your French vanilla coffee creamer OMG! Honey, your recipe is delicious and to say thanks for the $$$ I will be saving for this alone. I drink a lot of coffee maybe too much 😉 and to think it’s homemade but I will not be running to the store when I run out😊 thanks to you! Take care will be trying out some more of your delicious recipes 🙏🏾❤️😊

  2. 5 stars
    Just made this for the first time. It’s so yummy and definitely better than the other stuff. Can’t wait to have it in my coffee tomorrow.

    1. Just use peppermint extract instead of vanilla extract. Mocha is chocolate and vanilla. Do you want chocolate in your coffee?

  3. Thanks so much for this recipe! I don’t use creamer in my coffee so never have it on hand. I have made this creamer several times when we have guests who are into creamy coffee and they always love it! I make it in a shaker with a blender ball. This keeps it evenly mixed and the drink spout makes it easy to poor.

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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^

  8. 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.

  9. 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 🙂

  10. 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!

  11. 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 !!!
