DIY Coconut Coffee Creamer

Coconut creamer

While I am more of a tea drinker, I still enjoy the occasional cup of coffee. No matter which beverage I choose, I'm a sucker for those flavored creamers. It never occurred to me that I could make my own creamer, so I just continued to purchase the plastic containers at the grocery store. Then one morning I was scrolling through Pinterest (surprise, surprise) and found a recipe for homemade flavored creamer. It seemed way too easy not to try. Rather than using dairy milk, like the original recipe called for, I decided to use coconut milk because I had an open can that I had used for a different recipe, and I thought it would add some flavor. The result tastes just like the Almond Joy flavored creamer you can buy from the store! I'll probably continue to buy the pre-made flavored creamers from the store from time to time, but it is nice to know that there is a homemade alternative that takes absolutely no effort to make. 

14 ounce can Sweetened Condensed Milk
14 ounce can Coconut Milk
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Pour the ingredients into a quart-sized jar with a tight fitting lid. Screw the lid on tightly and shake vigorously until well combined. Keep refrigerated.
