Whether you're adding them to your morning coffee, or making that post-dinner cup extra special, my Homemade Coffee Creamer in 3 Flavors will do the trick.

Hi Bold Bakers!

Who out there just can’t start their day with out the perfect cup of coffee?

My husband, Kevin, and I NEED our coffee each day, and we need it to taste every bit as good as it makes us feel. My recipe for Homemade Coffee Creamer In 3 Flavors has been highly requested, and for good reason — it seems we all love coffee!

While I have respect for all you black coffee drinkers out there, there is something so special about having that extra hit of richness. My Bailey’s, French Vanilla, and Pumpkin Spice creamer recipes have something for everyone. Whether you’re adding them to your morning coffee, or making that post-dinner cup extra special, you’ll be glad you know how to make your own creamer right at home.

What is coffee creamer?

Believe it or not, coffee creamer is not just cream with added flavor.

Coffee creamer is a combination of flavoring and spices, sweetened condensed milk, and milk OR cream. The sweetened condensed milk and milk combine to give the creamer its richness, and this is what makes it so extra special once it gets mixed into your favorite coffee. If you can’t find sweetened condensed milk, you’re still in luck — because I have you covered with my Bold Baking Basic recipe for sweetened condensed milk.

I even have a dairy-free condensed milk recipe for those who are looking to cut back on dairy!

How to Make Coffee Creamer

I’m excited to tell you that this really could not be easier, because to make all 3 of these coffee creamer flavors you simply whisk together the ingredients.

For the Vanilla (and the Pumpkin Spice) creamer, I like to simmer everything together over low heat to really infuse the milk. I do the same for the Bailey’s flavor, but for a slightly different reason, as this will gently cook off the alcohol content, but leave that rich flavor. The result for all 3 is the perfect thick rich coffee creamer dressed up with loads of flavor — so no matter your mood, you can have a coffee flavor to match!

When do you add creamer? Before the coffee hits the mug or after?

I add my coffee creamer after my coffee is brewed, this way I can stir it in and know the heat of the coffee will warm it through allowing it to fully favor the coffee. That said I don’t really think there’s a right or wrong to this. In other words, once you make these coffee creamers, feel free to use as much or as little as you want to make coffee taste the way you like.

Does coffee creamer last longer than half and half?

Since this coffee creamer is homemade and has no artificial ingredients or preservatives, it lasts the same amount of time as cream would in your fridge. I suggest keeping your homemade coffee creamer in an airtight jar or container in the fridge for up to 6-7 days. BUT, I can almost bet you it wont last that long!

Would the non dairy version of these need to be kept in the refrigerator and how long do you think they would keep??

Thanks for recipes. To make bailey’s creamer do you add Irish whiskey or baileys Irish cream?

2nd question. When making home made vanilla extract when do you discard beans?

Enjoy your recipes and videos!!

Hi gemma I’m happy to tell ya that ur my go to lady for many recipes, and thank u for sharing great ideas all the time, I made the creamer, but I used homemade hazelnut milk with the condensed milk and vanilla extract it’s really yummy, next I will use home made coconut condensed Milk instead and I’m sure it will be even more delicious.

Hi Gemma,
I was wondering if I can keep those creamers sugar free; if it’s possible how can I modify the recipe?

Hi Gemma, my absolute favorite coffee creamer is Italian Sweet Cream, can you tell me a way to make that? I don’t really care for the other flavors you mention but hoping you can help me out.
