Cinnamon Coffee Creamer Recipe Tips & Variations

Cinnamon coffee creamer is surprisingly easy to make, and the homemade version does not contain any preservatives or unexpected sweeteners. Here are a few ways you can make this recipe your own:

The Milk

Our base recipe uses a can of sweetened condensed milk and an equal amount of regular milk. Sweetened condensed milk is concentrated milk that has had most of the water removed and some sugar added. It is easy to work with because the cans are shelf-stable — so all you have to pick up at the store is a quart of milk. But it is high in calories, so you can feel free to substitute half-and-half or cream. You can also make coffee creamer with almond milk or coconut milk!

Adding Sugar

Sweetened condensed milk already has sugar in it, so we don’t add any more to our creamer. But if you’re using a different kind of milk or prefer your creamer extra sweet, you can try mixing in honey, agave, or simple syrup. If you want to use regular white sugar, we recommend heating the milk first to help the sugar dissolve.

Going Beyond Cinnamon

We’re talking about cinnamon coffee creamer, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop at one spice! Add a pumpkin spice blend for a fall twist, or mix in cocoa powder for a Mexican mocha creamer. You can also experiment with nutmeg, turmeric, or ginger.
