Powdered Coffee Creamer Recipe Variations

Wondering how you can customize this recipe? There are quite a few options, from base ingredients to flavorings. Here are our simple tips!


You can add liquid flavorings like vanilla or hazelnut extract, but we find that powdered flavors work much better. Add powdered vanilla to your creamer, or blend almonds or hazelnuts into a fine powder. Spices are especially easy to add — think cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, or pumpkin pie spice — and taste pretty darn delicious, too. And if you’re a chocolate lover, try a spoonful or two of cocoa powder!

Powdered Milk

You can find powdered milk at many grocery stores and health food stores, or try looking online. If you prefer a non-dairy option, coconut milk powder can be a delicious substitute.


If you like your coffee creamer to be sweet, why not add a little powdered sugar to the mix? You can also try alternative sweeteners like stevia for a low-calorie option. And regular white or brown sugar will work in a pinch, too.
