        We go through a lot of coffee, will these freeze well if I made extra?
      1. Teenieg's Avatar
        I find using my own taste much better, I will have to try the other variations beside my standard vanilla!

        I love hazelnut creamer with my hazelnut flavored coffee, will try this!

        Example flavorings:
        ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
        Salted Caramel: 2-3 Tbs Caramel Ice cream topping, 1/2 tsp salt( or use torani salted caramel or caramel sauce with sea salt)
        White Chocolate- (powder 1 cup of white chocolate chips in a blender by pulsing)- you'll need to heat this one with the other ingredients in a saucepan until combined ( Or buy white chocolate sauce and skip needing to heat anything up.)

        I have also used fat free/low fat heavy whipping cream and warmed it up in my microwave, adding the coffee syrups from Torani & Davinci, then whipping it with a handheld frother tool (bed bath and beyond) or a regular whisk to make my drinks lattes.

        I did the pulsing of the white chocolate chips and heated all the ingredients, anxiously waiting to try my White Chocolate Raspberry creamer I love. Unfortunately the melted chocolate chips leaves a 'greasy' film on top of my coffee. I also used 4T of sugar free raspberry Toriani syrup and it was too much. I should have only used 2T. Next time I will use the sugar Free Toriani White Chocolate Syrup and try using soy milk..

        Instead of skim milk, would it be possible to use raw milk?
      1. besklow's Avatar
        I've been wondering.... would evaporated milk work in the basic mix? I am diabetic and any way to cut down on the calories would be very helpful.

        Love flavored creamers but not the price. Can't wait to try the french vanilla.

        I have been making this French vanilla creamer can't keep enough in the house. I am saving so much money. Even if our prices are higher in hawaii the price of a store brought creamer is 20x more than if I just buy the condense milk and make my own...thank you

        I actually quit drinking coffee for a couple of weeks; but I enjoy it soooo much that I don't stay away for long. I just made the French Vanilla this morning & I am in love!!!!!! I used Vanilla flavored Almond Milk instead of the skim milk, the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract and it was perfect. Great recipe - would never know it is not store bought creamer.

      A nice touch for privacy is a hula hoop with a shower curtain attached with rings and hung from a low branch of a tree. It works around a one ring baby swim pool for bathing privacy as well.

      Can't wait to try this. I'm trying to get plastic out of my life, so storing in glass is optimal for me.
