{Recipe} Vanilla Coffee Creamer

I love me some Vanilla creamer for my coffee, but when I read the ingredients I was a little freaked out.
It's filled with things I cannot pronounce. No bueno!

I played around and came up with a recipe that I love and that doesn't gross me out.

2 cups Milk
1 1/2 TBS Vanilla
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk

Yep. 3 ingredients. 

I removed the label from an empty creamer container and washed it really well.

Poor all 3 ingredients into bottle and shake shake shake!!!

I love the pour spout and the easy close lid.

This is my new favorite mug.
L.O.V.E. Owls!!!


This does not last as long as store bought creamer because it is made with real ingredients and has no preservatives, so use it up within a few weeks. I go by the expiration date on the milk that I use.

Wow, I love this idea! I purchase so much creamer and I'm not too thrilled about all the crazy ingredients either... you've got a great solution I must try!

How smart! My husband loves creamer in his hot chocolate, so we'll have to give this a try.

You just became my hero! Pinning this for sure. We go through WAY too much creamer in this house and I hate all of the extra "yuck" in the store bought stuff. And it looks like a cost savings to boot! Not a big fan of vanilla, but I could use ANY extract with this recipe. Thank you so much!

Perfect! Thanks.
Just so you know the creamer I just bought says use within two weeks of opening on the bottle. So I assume it would last about the same.
