Make it Yourself Monday: Coffee Creamer

This weekend I did something that I have been avoiding for a long time: I read the label on my coffee creamer. It was worse than I thought, there were probably 10 times as many ingredients that I didn’t recognize to all the ones I did.

Edit 1

I know in the past I had used raisins to make condensed milk and really enjoyed the flavor so I figured that this would be a really good base for coffee creamer.

Condensed Milk Recipe

1 cup Milk of Choice (I use almond)

1/2 cup Raisins

To Make: 

  1. Combine ingredients in air-tight container
  2. Leave to thicken in fridge for 24-36 hours
  3. Strain out raisins
  4. Enjoy!

Basic Coffee Creamer

1/3 cup Condensed Milk

1 cup Milk of Choice (I use almond for this as well)

All-Natural Maple Syrup to Sweeten (Optional)

To Make:

  1. Combine all ingredients and enjoy OR combine all in saucepan over low heat for about five minutes until desired thickness.
  2. Seal in air-tight container
  3. Enjoy for up to a week!

This delicious recipe can be shaped into almost any flavor; mocha with a little cocoa powder, french vanilla with a little vanilla extract, even fund flavors like peppermint.

As always, I hope everyone has a good week and let me know what I should try to make next!
