Important Things You Should Know Before Making French Vanilla Coffee Creamer

There are five important bits of info behind every successfully-whipped french vanilla coffee creamer. Take notes of them below:

  • If you want to make your blend taste exceptional, make use of a high-quality vanilla extract.
  • When it comes to french vanilla coffee creamer, less is more. In other words, you need just three ingredients to make the perfect blend. Don’t be tempted to go overboard.
  • It takes a maximum of 5 minutes to whip a french vanilla coffee creamer. Don’t overheat it.
  • When buying a vanilla extract, choose according to the taste you want out of your coffee. For a sweet, mellow taste, opt for Madagascar Bourbon vanilla. For a spicy sweet taste, go for Mexican vanilla. And for fruity, floral taste, use Tahitian vanilla.
  • After whipping this creamer, you can convert it into hot chocolate by mixing it with cocoa powder and hot milk.

Do you get it? If yes, below is the list of ingredients you need to make a homemade french vanilla coffee creamer.


  • Milk: The type of milk you use is up to you. If you want your cup to taste really creamy, go for whole milk. But if you want yours fat-free and smooth, use skim milk. And for those of you who want it extraordinarily creamy, go for heavy whipping cream.
  • Sweetened condensed milk: Yes, another milk on the list. The purpose of sweetened condensed milk in every creamer is to give them more richness and sweetness than ordinary milk is capable of.
  • Vanilla extract: Remember that this is what accounts for the rich vanilla taste of every delicious cup of french vanilla creamed coffee. So, choosing one of good quality is the step that will set your homemade creamer apart from the store-bought creamers.
