Homemade Coconut Milk Coffee Creamer {Dairy-Free}

I've really began to cherish mornings and the moments of quiet that I have before heading off to work. It's so great to have a little bit of time to myself, not being rushed or stressed. Just time to breathe. Almost always, those moments are spent with a coffee cup in my hand.

Ever since I stopped {minus a few occasions} drinking dairy milk last summer, I've been craving a delicious non-dairy coffee creamer that wasn't full of sugar and ingredients I couldn't pronounce. Those are hard to find at my grocery store! My do-it-yourself spirit decided to make my own and I was so happy with the results. This three-ingredient Homemade Coconut Milk Coffee Creamer is creamy, flavorful, and delicious! Give this homemade coffee creamer a try even if you're not dairy-free!



This delicious homemade coffee creamer starts with light coconut milk. Feel free to use the full-fat version if you would like. It would be even creamier!


Homemade Coconut Milk Coffee Creamer

Ingredients:

1 14-ounce can light coconut milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3-4 tablespoons organic honey

Directions:

In a saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the can of light coconut milk, vanilla, and honey and stir. Continue to stir occasionally for about five minutes, until the mixture is well combined.

Pour the mixture into a mason jar (pint) and let it cool before transferring it to the refrigerator.

*This homemade coffee creamer keeps for about a week.
