French vanilla coffee creamer
I have often asked myself, “how do they make French Vanilla coffee creamer?”. I walk by those fancy creamers in the grocery store. I won’t put them in my basket because I feel like store-bought coffee creamers have artificial flavors and are filled with a lot of different chemicals.
I want fancy flavors in my coffee from time to time. When I have guests, I like to offer something unique. This homemade creamer is all of that and more.
What makes homemade French vanilla creamer so good?
The delicate sweetness of this creamer is sure to impress anyone who tries it. You can enjoy it in both hot and iced coffees.
It’s perfect for adding to a coffee bar when you have guests over, whether they’re just visiting or you’re hosting a party. Everyone loves the indulgent taste it adds to their coffee!
Some creamer recipes use half-and-half or even fresh milk. However, this one uses condensed and evaporated milk, which is the perfect consistency and doesn’t water your coffee down!
It is also easily adjustable if you want to try adding other flavored extracts, such as almond or maple.
Why you’ll love this recipe
You don’t need to cook this creamer on the stovetop; all you need is a blender to make it. It only takes 5 minutes to whip up. Now, there is no reason why you shouldn’t make your own creamer. After all, it saves money, too!
By using canned milk, the flavors you create will be rich and very satisfying.
Moreover, since the condensed milk is already sweetened, you don’t need to add any sugar. The vanilla extract perfectly complements it.

Dairy-free evaporated milk is also really simple. Let your favorite milk alternative (oat milk, soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk) simmer on the stove until it is reduced by half.
