Creamer Concoctions

22 July 2008

I love coffee. I love flavored coffee creamers. Flavored creamers can be quite costly, and I don't do quite costly. So, I've been experimenting with making my own. I took a recipe my mom had and used it as a base.

Here is Mom's recipe-
1 cup non dairy coffee creamer
1-1/4 tsp. almond extract
1-1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup powdered sugar

Place all ingredients in a quart size Ziploc bag or a jar with a screw on lid. You want something that will close securely. Then just shake it all up until it's mixed thoroughly. Add about a tablespoon per cup of coffee.

Now this is good, but I've been playing with it a bit:
I've tried replacing the almond extract with coconut, both with and without the cinnamon.
I've done rum extract instead of almond.
I've used peppermint extract and replaced the cinnamon with cocoa.

It's been fun trying all the different combos out! So, by using Mom's recipe as a base, I've come up with several "keeper" concoctions and have lots more ideas to try.

Try it yourself and let me know what you come up with!
