Homemade Vanilla Cinnamon Coffee Creamer

I've always loved my morning coffee, and even more so since becoming a mom. The other day I was in the grocery store and the coffee creamer section caught my eye. It's not something I'm usually drawn to, but for some reason it sounded good. That is, until I took a look at the label. Holy number of ingredients I can't pronounce! Since I wasn't about to drink that, I decided to make my own healthy coffee creamer option.

A lot of homemade coffee creamer recipes use condensed milk, which I also wanted to avoid. So I made this creamer using half and half. If you want to opt for a dairy-free or vegan option, you can totally replace the half and half with almond or coconut milk.

The first time I experimented with this, I used cinnamon sticks to infuse the flavor into the half and half. It totally worked, but using ground cinnamon was quicker and easier. With the ground cinnamon you just need to shake the creamer before using it - easy enough!

You'll notice that I've listed sweetener as optional below. I don't use it personally, but that's just a matter of personal preference and you totally can add to taste.

1 Pint Half and Half (or milk of choice)
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp ground cinnamon
Agave, honey or sugar (optional)

Combine the ingredients in a container and shake. I like to just add the ingredients to the half and half container. Make the creamer at least a few hours before you need it to give the flavors a chance to come together.

That's it! Healthy, easy and way more affordable than store-bought creamers. Win, win, win!
