She {hearts} homemade coffee creamer

I really enjoy coffee!

There is something about that first sip in the morning that just warms me all over.

I recently looked at the ingredients in my creamer and wow! I couldn’t even pronounce several of the items listed.  After reading that, I was on a mission to make my own creamer!  I was so happy when I came across Deliciously Organic! She had a huge variety of choices, so I started with Chocolate Almond.  It reminded me of an Almond Joy, perfect!

Ingredients needed:

1 cup whole milk

1 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

Called for maple syrup as a sweetener, but I used 2 droppers of liquid stevia cause I’m not a fan of maple syrup.

1 teaspoon almond extract

Over medium heat in a mid-sized saucepan, whisk together whole milk, cream, cocoa powder, and liquid stevia.  Once it begins to steam, remove from heat and whisk in almond extract.  Store in glass container in the fridge.  It is sooooooooo good!

    The ingredient list on our flavored creamer is long and scary; it has never dawned on me that we could make our own. What is the purpose of the steaming step? What happens if someone goes too far and the mixture comes to a boil? I’m remembering there is a point where you end up with a skim forming on the top.
    Anyway, thank you for posting this. Hazelnut is our flavor of choice and I would use the stevia also.

      Hey Betty! I know that list is very scary! I was shocked when I read it. I am assuming the steam is just to give it time to cook together and then take it off the heat. You can burn milk very easily if you are not careful. Yum, love hazelnut as well! You could really choose any flavor with that base of cream and milk! Maybe even add coconut extract….
