Make your own coffee creamer for pennies and it’s easy!

homemade french vanilla coffee creamer so simple and inexpensive

I’ve been wanting to try this for awhile. Since I’ve given up my sodas I need coffee to help fill that void. It’s doing a great job. I prefer it iced and with creamer though. So I thought I’d make my own and see if it was as good as store bought. It certainly costs. much less!

The first creamer I made was the french vanilla coffee creamer. 

Check out how easy the recipe is.

My UN-Entitled Life
I will never buy creamer again. To me it tasted just like the stuff I buy in expensive bottles at the store. This was so inexpensive. I paid $1.50 for the condensed milk. I always have milk on hand so I don’t really even count that expense. I also always have vanilla and sugar. So to me the condensed creamer will be used again for the next batch. That’s like .75 for a 16 oz bottle of creamer. Super inexpensive and so quickly made. The next time I make it I’m going to try a mocha. Who doesn’t love chocolate and coffee? I’ll post the recipe as soon as I try it out…oh and I have to run out of the first one. So it’ll probably take me about a week! Check back!

I drank a whole lot of iced coffee in the making of this blog post. Pray for my family as I’m not used to drinking this much caffeine. LOL What kind of creamer would you like to see me make next time? Leave me a comment and let me know!

    I’ve been seeing a lot of foodies talking about making their own coffee creamer. I saved one of my old bottles just for this purpose and have yet to do it. One of these days! I love that you can easily make whatever flavor you want. Great budget friendly recipe! Thanks for linking at Tasty Tuesdays!

  8. I’m going to need to try this. I love creamer in my coffee but some months I can’t justify buying it. This looks easy enough.

  9. Yum, I want to try to make this! Those creamers can be so expensive. You also reminded me that I have some french vanilla left over in the fridge that I now want to add to my iced coffee 😉

  10. Jenni E. {Sweet Pennies from Heaven} says:

    I’ll be trying your recipe, for SURE! I love the idea of saving that much money. I love iced coffee too….I tend to drink it more in the summer. So yummmmm.

    That is simple! I could see adding some flavorings too for extra yum!

  26. casavilorainteriors says:

    very simple to make! I don’t drink coffee, but I know it’s fun making something and saving cash

    While I’m not a big coffee drinker my mom and sister both make up for that! I’ll have to pass this on to them; I’m sure they’ll appreciate it 🙂

  28. Carly from The Puzzled Palate says:

    I am not a coffee drinker… so I am not sure I would try this. It sounds like a great idea to save $!

  29. Liz Mays says:

    Now that is a good idea. There have been days when we’re out and we can’t brew coffee without creamer!

  30. Amanda says:

    I looooooove coffee! 🙂 I will have to try this!

  31. My husband is the coffee drinker around here. He could really use this!

  32. edwardsmom says:

    THANK YOU FOR THIS. You have no idea how much I have spent on creamer

  33. Amanda says:

    I’m a french vanilla fan! I’d love to make my own creamer!

  34. I’ve been making my own creamer for awhile now too. I’m a huge French Vanilla fan.

  35. Candy @ Candypolooza says:

    Nice! I will have to make this. Love creamer in my coffee!

  36. What an awesome idea. I am all about saving money, with three boys every penny counts.

  37. And yours doesn’t have any artificial stuff in it. Definitely trying this!

  38. Krissy Higgins (@Krissy_r) says:

    I drink iced mocha like it’s going out of style, so I’d love to see a semi-HEALTHY (low calorie) mocha mix!

    • I’m working on the mocha. I can’t do low cal for myself because it has bad side effects on me. 🙁 But I’m working on it for this week, I promise.

  39. Tried this yesterday for the first time – and I couldn’t figure out why it tasted “off” to me and then it dawned on me…this is coffee WHITENER – not CREAMER! There’s no cream in it whatsoever and frankly I’m one of those who despise milk in coffee (won’t even consider trying a latte because of it). I’ll try this again but instead of milk I’ll use table cream or half and half or something to boost the creamy flavor of it. Its a good idea in theory
