Coffee Creamer

For years I have been on the hunt for the perfect coffee creamer.  I LOVE flavored coffee but do not love the trans fat that comes in the store bought creamers.  I had a brief affair with flavored Splenda but now that I am expecting, I stay away from artificial sweeteners.  I actually quit drinking coffee because I couldn't find anything that I liked enough to bother.  Enter this recipe...  It has revolutionized my coffee drinking.  I have cracked out the decaf and am back to my soothing morning ritual of a hot cup of coffee.  I also love taking my travel mug with me on the way to work in the afternoon.  There is something so comforting in the ritual of coffee preparation and drinking.  I'm weird.  I know.

Coffee Creamer
(recipe from Saving 4 Six)
  • 1.5 cups of milk (skim, whole, whatever you prefer)
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (300ml)
  • your choice of flavoring:
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa & 1 tsp. almond extract
*Mix the two kinds of milk together and add your choice of flavoring.
*Add to your coffee and ENJOY!

I am sure that there are other add ins but those two are my favorite.  I usually split my batch in half and add vanilla to half and the cocoa and almond extract to the other.  Yummy!
