I came across a recipe to make coffee creamer. It is super simple, takes about 2 minutes to make, and tastes so REAL. Not that I mind ummy, yummy fake creamer, but having pronounceable ingredients is always a plus as well. I was hoping it would be a frugal replacement to our regular creamer. I think the ingredients cost about $2 total, and didn't even fill my $3 coffee creamer container, so that didn't really work out. I randomly picked up the sweetened condensed milk at Target, though, so I'm hoping I can get it cheaper at Walmart or Winco next time.
Put the following ingredients into a sealed container and shake, shake, shake:
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups skim milk
1 T vanilla
I found sweetened condensed milk at Winco for $1.09. I also don't measure the milk anymore, but just fill the container all the way up. It didn't seem too thin at all. I figure that much milk to be about $.25, so with the vanilla that puts a 32oz container of creamer under $1.50.
