Vanilla Coffee Creamer


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.

Hey!! I came across this post via Pinterest. I am currently in Madagascar for several months and have greatly missed good coffee creamer. They don't have creamer here...only milk. I never thought of making my own! :) It turned out great!! I actually used the non sweetened condensed milk and added some splenda to the mixture. It is so yummy!!! Thank you so much!!!!

What is "non" sweetened condensed milk? Do you mean Evaporated Milk?

You need sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated. I'm not sure where you see "non" unless I'm blind, which is certainly a possibility! :)

Never heard of non-sweetened condensed milk either. I think she meant something else. Anyway ...thanks for this tip on making creamer.
