How to make your own flavored coffee creamer

Updated April 17, 2017

Coffee creamers are a popular additive to morning coffee to add flavour and to help make coffee creamier. These creamers can be expensive to buy, especially if you purchase creamers weekly or use them liberally. There are two different types of creamers -- powdered and liquid. Powdered creamers can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature, but liquid creamers should be stored covered in the refrigerator.

Blend 3/4 cup of confectioner's sugar and 3/4 cup non-dairy creamer or powdered milk.

Add 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.

Mix in 1 teaspoon almond extract. Blend well.

Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
