Homemade Coffee Creamer

 How do you like your coffee?  I am a cream and sugar kind of gal.    I love powdered creamer but I don’t like all the ugly ingredients that are listed on it so I have just actually just been using plain fat-free or 1% milk for years.

Have you read what’s on the label of the store bought powdered creamer?  Yuck!

So I started doing some research and playing around with making my own and I am so happy with this 3 ingredient Homemade Coffee Creamer!!


1 Cup Powdered Milk

1/3 Cup Powdered Sugar

1 TBSP melted coconut oil

If you like more flavored creamer then you can add a teaspoon of powdered vanilla or cocoa powder too :-)

Ingredients of homemade coffee creamer


1.  Mix together the powdered milk and powdered sugar.

2.  Drizzle the melted coconut oil over the dry ingredients.

3.  Pulse in a food processor for about 1 minute.   Or you can put it in your jar and shake vigorously.   You can even put it in a food processor and pulse until fine.

If there are any slightly bigger pieces, don’t worry.  They melt perfectly in your coffee. :-)

I love creamer, it wasn’t part of my diet until I moved to a new work place where there is free coffee and creamer. I know of its lack of nutritional value – so I stopped alltogether – but now that I see this recipe I am definitely going to pin it and save it for further use!

Thank you so much ’cause I was just about to ask about the nutritional value of this new creamer. And you say it right there! Thank you so much again!!

You are so welcome :-) I was the same. Once I paid attention to the ingredients of the store bought, I stopped using it. I am thrilled with making it myself!

Love this idea! Curious as to what the oil does? I’m not a big fan of coconut oil, was wondering if I could leave it out or should I substitute another fat?


Sherri April 26, 2014 at 10:07 am

The oils makes it taste “creamier”. i have friends that use butter too. I chose coconut oil because it’s a healthier fat. :-)

Coconut oil isn’t just a fat that’s better than the junk in creamer, it’s a GOOD FOR YOU food. It actually HELPS you stay healthier and lose weight. Look it up!

Does this need to be refrigerated?


Sherri April 27, 2014 at 8:17 am

No, I have mine just on the counter. :-)

You don’t mention if the one you’re replacing is supposed to be non-dairy or not. I mean, most people use “creamer” because they have dairy issues, which is why (I’m supposing) the store bought stuff doesn’t have powdered milk in it but a “milk derivative”. I could be wrong though, I often am, esp when not presented with all the facts. ^_^

Is the powdered sugar crucial to this recipe? I prefer to use maple syrup or honey as a sweetener…. Thanks! :)


Sherri September 27, 2014 at 9:12 am

Not at all. I have actually made it with none at all and it’s great. I use organic coconut sugar as my sweetner too. :-)

Can this be made lactose free?


Sherri October 17, 2014 at 8:03 am

Yes, you could buy Soy Milk Powder to use instead. Here are several on Amazon – http://amzn.to/1tzlUMa

How would you go about using this if you wanted hazelnut flavored creamer. I am really wanting to try this but I like my creamer flavored. Thanks for sharing I will still try the recipe.


Sherri January 9, 2015 at 9:19 am

I would think that a few drops of hazelnut extract would work. :-)

Ok thanks cant wait to try

Can you substitute Splenda for the powdered sugar?


Sherri January 10, 2015 at 12:25 pm

You probably could use Splenda but you would probably need less. Then add more if you need to.

Do you have a home made or copy cat recipe for liquid coffee creamer? My husband loves Coffeemate Natural Bliss. Any ideas?


Sherri January 26, 2015 at 1:14 pm

Yes! A great homemade recipe is:

1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons maple syrup
