Homemade Coffee Creamer from Weelicious.comPin

How often do you wake up in the morning, pour your first cup of coffee and reach for the coffee creamer in the fridge? For me (even though I drink decaf) it’s 365 days a year. What kind of coffee creamer do you usually add to your coffee? Fresh? Powdered? Milk? 

Even though I eat as clean as possible I found myself reaching for flavored creamers with tons of junky ingredients in them. Just read the labels to see! Half of the ingredients you probably can’t even pronounce. This Homemade Coffee Creamer is so fresh tasting, incredibly easy to make and stays fresh in your fridge for weeks.

  1. So excited to try this!! Do you think you could use dates instead of raisins to make the sweetened condensed milk? I have a surpluse of dates hanging out in my pantry!

  2. Is there any way you could figure out the nutritional values (estimates) of the homemade condensed milk? Thanks!
