I’m a big fan of non dairy coffee creamers. I’ve tried many but lately I’ve been trying to cut back on my sugar intake and the store brands of coffee creamers are loaded with sugar and preservatives. Since I’m not ready to give up my coffee, I’ve decided to make my own healthy chocolate coffee creamer and now, I don’t think I’ll ever go back to the store brands.

Homemade Coffee Creamer

The small batch coffee creamer recipe I’m sharing here today is fantastic! Simple, pure ingredients that taste delicious together.

Coffee creamers that I find in the grocery come in such large bottles. It takes so long for me to finish them off. In fact, by the time I get half-way through the bottle, I’m always afraid that the coffee creamer may have gone sour or I’m tired of the flavor by then.

This small batch chocolate coffee creamer is the perfect size if you’re cooking in a household with one or two people. You aren’t left with a huge amount that can easily go to waste. This non dairy creamer recipe will make a little over a cup of creamer, just the right amount to last anywhere from a few days to about a week, depending on how much creamer you use in your coffee.

Non Dairy Coffee Creamer Ingredients

The ingredient list for making homemade chocolate coffee creamer is short.

I use:

  • unsweetened coconut milk
  • honey
  • unsweetened cocoa powder
  • vanilla

You can use regular milk or almond milk if you prefer but I really love the taste that the coconut milk adds to the creamer. It reminds me a little of a caffè mocha.

How To Make Chocolate Coffee Creamer

Step 1

Combine the unsweetened coconut milk and the honey in a small pot set over medium heat. When the milk begins to simmer, remove the pot from the heat and whisk in a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder and a half of a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Step 2

Allow the chocolate coffee creamer to cool to room temperature, then transfer to a jar or bottle.

How Long Does Homemade Coffee Creamer Last?

Store homemade coffee creamer in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will keep for a week, just give it a shake before you use it in your coffee.

Homemade healthy coffee creamer is so much better than any store-bought creamer. With this healthy chocolate coffee creamer you know exactly what’s in it. There are no artificial ingredients and no sugar added.
