How To Make Your Own Non Dairy Flavored Coffee Creamers

I am a very much a coffee drinker.  Obsessed actually. Addicted, whatever you would like to call it. I literally can not function in the morning without it, I know I know, so not healthy.  I like an afternoon coffee, but usually only because I want to make a latte or espresso.  Or Mocha Cappuccino.  Or Caramel Pumpkin iced Coffee.  Ok ….  I’m losing myself.  Come back.  Whew, I almost walked away to make a coffee.

Alright, so with all the coffee we drink, we go through a lot of creamer. I use non dairy creamer in my coffee. I know a lot of people prefer half and half or milk, but I hate the taste. If I buy my coffee from a cafe, that is different.  At home, I like the non dairy creamer.  We usually buy flavored coffee and regular creamer, but let’s face it anything flavored is more expensive. So I started buying regular coffee and decided to make my own flavored creamers.  It is so easy and I am quite surprised more people do not do it.

The best part about these,  they are non dairy. People who can not have dairy can now have flavored creamers, CHEAP.

Walmart has a brand of creamer that is $1. I made Mocha, Pumpkin Spice and Vanilla Bean & Nutmeg.  All of which I already had in my cabinet.  I now have 3  - 16 oz. jars of flavored creamer for  $3   compared to one store bought starting at $2.19 for the small one. 

Here is what to do : 

Mocha -  Add 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder and 2 tablespoons of sugar (optional)  to about 16 oz. of non dairy, powdered coffee creamer.  Shake well to mix.  These canning jars come in handy for this.  Use your normal amount in your coffee.  Adjust to taste.

Pumpkin Spice-   Same as above, except omit the cocoa and use 1 teaspoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice.

Vanilla Bean and Nutmeg-  Since the vanilla bean is moist you will have to dry it out first.  Split the vanilla bean down the middle and open it up (as if butterflying) .  Leave out on the counter over night to dry. Depending on how much is in the bean pod, it may take a second day.  After it is dried, scrape the vanilla bean into a canning jar ( or container of your choice) add 1 teaspoon of nutmeg.  Shake to mix well.

   

Simple.

Also makes a great gift!

Enjoy!

  1. I am one that has to be careful when drinking coffee because I love it, but can’t handle dairy. If I have more than one cup with it, it makes me have some serious issues. And my boyfriend can always tell. If I say, “Ugh! My stomach is doing funky things”, he will say to me, “Did you have any dairy?”

    Now that I see how cheap and easy making your own creamer is, I definitely need to try it.

    Thanks for sharing, Melissa.

  2. The thing is that the powdered “non dairy” creamers still have a milk derivative in them so people with milk allergies still cannot have them. :(

  3. Does the all spice dissolve or does it stick around at the bottom of the glass?

  4. Thanks for this info. I will be making some of this in the coming weeks as I like to make my own hot cocoa mix and use the flavored powder creamers to make different flavors of coco but I’m limited to what the stores carry. Now I can make flavors of my choice!!
