I found a recipe on Pinterest for Homemade Coffee Creamer not too long ago. I finally got around to giving it a whirl and WOWZERS. It was SO good. And can I just tell you how incredible SIMPLE it was to make? It took all of five minutes. Seriously, for reals. So now we drink creamer that only has THREE ingredients instead of twenty-three. Have you looked at the ingredient list for those store bought creamers??? Yikes, bikes. (WHAT MOVIE??! Please, someone guess it!) But for reals, it’s kinda gross all the preserves they put in that stuff. So this is an easy alternative if you’re into homemade stuff. I love things that are organic and clean but also simple and fast! I don’t have loads of time to spend in the kitchen, friends.
Here’s the dish. This is the easiest thing you’ll ever make from scratch. So whip it up and ENJOY.
1. ¼ cup brown sugar
2. 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract (use real vanilla, not the imitation – have you read the ingredients on that?!)
3. approx. 2 cups of half and half
1. Combine brown sugar and vanilla in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat. Heat gently, stirring occasionally until sugar is melted. Don’t let it get to hot or bubbly or it will solidify and you won’t be able to mix in your creamer.
2. Turn burner off and slowly wisk in half and half, letting the residual heat help the sugar mixture and the creamer to combine. Use immediately, or store in a glass container in your fridge.
