{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.

Ingredients:
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!!!

Enjoy!

Note:
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.
