DIY Coffee Creamer

Coffee is one of my favorite things in life. Hot coffee, iced coffee, black coffee, coffee with cream: You name it, I love it. Typically, I'll buy flavored creamer to add a little somethin-somethin to the coffee I make at home. The holidays are great because there's a ton of seasonal flavors (pumpkin and peppermint, anyone??), but once March rolls around, there are only, like, 4 flavors to choose from. I didn't want to buy hazelnut again, so I started researching my options to make my own creamer.

I found this base recipe for homemade coffee creamer, and I decided to try creating recipes for a couple different flavors. I decided on raspberry mocha and raspberry mint, and they were both super easy to make! The best part about this base recipe is that it can be customized about a billion different ways.

Raspberry Mocha Coffee Creamer
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
1 3/4 cups half and half
3 tablespoons chocolate syrup
1 tablespoon raspberry syrup

Raspberry Mint Coffee Creamer
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
1 3/4 cups half and half
2 tablespoons raspberry syrup
1 teaspoon mint extract

Both of the creamers were deeeee-licious! Personally, I liked the raspberry mocha a bit better than the mint, but I was happy to add variety to my morning, either way. This is a really fun way to customize your coffee drinks, and I like knowing exactly what is in it - no more preservatives!

These minty-fresh creamers are making me crave springtime more than ever!
