Homemade Cinnamon Coffee Creamer


It was an early predawn hour as I sat drinking a cup of hot coffee in front of a roaring fire in the woodstove. I was thinking of all the chores I needed to get done around the farm when I absent mindedly read the ingredients on back of the coffee creamer label. It read “Sugar, water, partially hydrogenated soybean and /or cottonseed oil, sodium caseinate, and less than 2% of propylene glycol, dipotassium phosphate, natural and artificial flavors, polysorbate 60, sodium stearoyl lactylate, color added, sucrolose (non-nutritive sweetener)”.

Glory be! I didn’t know coffee creamer was made out of that! My coffee did not seem so appetizing after reading all of that. I decided to begin experimenting with making my own homemade coffee creamer with more natural ingredients.

Thanks - I just made some hot chocolate mix with my powdered milk for the same reasons. Will be trying this next!

I thought also about sometimes substituting the cinnamon for pumpkin spice. I think that would be good as well.

I'm glad you are enjoying it. It makes me feel better knowing I'm not putting so many unknowns into my food. Now if only I could eat less food I'll really be doing good!
