Why make your own coffee creamer?
There are plenty of reasons to start making your own coffee creamer. Let's quickly go over why making your coffee creamer might be the better option.
- Additives, Oils, and Chemicals - For one thing, store-bought coffee creamers tend to have an extensive list of ingredients, many of which with names that are difficult to pronounce, much less identify. Preservatives, artificial flavorings, seed oils, and additives can make these creamers undesirable. By making your own creamer, you can avoid using ingredients that aren't ideal for your diet, lifestyle, or health.
- Sugar Content and Carbs - Store-bought coffee creamers are often sweetened with corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, and other inadequate ingredients. However, homemade creamer can be sweetened using agave syrup, coconut sugar, brown sugar, condensed milk, or whichever sweeteners you prefer. If you are following a low-carb or ketosis diet, a homemade coffee creamer can be the perfect solution.
- Taste the Difference - You will definitely be able to taste the difference when you make homemade coffee creamer versus using store-bought creamer. Not only does homemade coffee creamer made with condensed milk and real vanilla extract have an authentic and “real” taste, but it produces a smoother texture and a more palatable aftertaste.
What are some coffee creamer flavor options?
You can add all sorts of flavorings to these creamers! Extracts, spices, you name it! Or, you can just make simple vanilla coffee creamer and then add it to flavored coffee for an exemplary brew!
When will homemade creamer go bad?
Depending on the ingredients you have used in your homemade coffee creamer, you can usually expect it to last for about 2 weeks when refrigerated. However, if the primary ingredient of your homemade coffee creamer is heavy whipping cream, it may last a little bit longer in the fridge.
The high-fat content of heavy whipping cream helps keep cream from going bad shortly after being exposed to air. The reason that most heavy creams you buy at the grocery store have such a long shelf life, to begin with, is their Ultra-High Temperature (UHT) processing. Ergo, UHT heavy cream is pasteurized, which makes it especially stable without the need for preservatives or additives.
