I love coffee but even more, I love my sweetened coffee cream. Waking up and having a warm mug between my hands is such a comfortable feeling. Sometimes I wonder if I crave the warm routine or the coffee itself.
Over a year ago, I parted ways with my chemical creamer that I loved oh so much. Since I started this health journey the past year, I've decided that if I can't pronounce all the ingredients then I shouldn't have it. Needless to say, my Coffeemate cream was one of the first things to go. Lately, half and half has been a bit boring so I finally decided to make my own French vanilla coffee cream.
I had it this morning and boy is it yummy.
French Vanilla Coffee Cream
1 TBSP = 55 calories
14oz Fat Free Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 3/4 Cup Milk or Cream* (I used 1% milk)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
*(whole, lowfat, skim, almond, soy, heavy cream, half & half etc. The more fat, the more creaminess)
1. In a bowl, add all the ingredients.
2. Using an immersion blender, blend for about 30 seconds.
3. Pour mixture into a mason jar or old coffee container, cover and date.
The mixture should be used within a week of making the creamer.
