I was looking for a way to indulge my husband’s habit for those expensive creamers without the price tag and the hydrogenated fats and fillers that go along with it. I looked for recipes online but only found them recipes calling for a base of a can of sweetened condensed milk and 1 1/2 cups regular milk. That was still too much money for this tightwad. I finally just got in the kitchen and started doing some concocting of my own. I fooled around and came up with a recipe that is cheap (I like it) and quite tasty (my husband likes it). Check it out!
3 cups milk (I used vanilla soy milk)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup dry milk
2 tsp liquid flavoring*
Put all ingredients into a glass jar and shake well. Store in the fridge and shake well before using.
* I used vanilla, butter and nut flavoring, but you can also use almond extract, vanilla extract, peppermint, or anything else you may stumble across in the spice aisle. Try something new and see if you like it! If it doesn’t turn out to be a good coffee creamer, you can always mix it with some eggs and try a new recipe for french toast.
