So who’s a fan of frou-frou coffee? I have to admit that I can’t really stomach my coffee black. On the other hand, I consider a daily mug or two of lightly sweetened, cream-swirled coffee to be just the how-to-fake-enough-sleep boost that I need.

As some of you already know, we moved into our new house about a week ago, and we were sadly unable to locate our coffee maker (along with pretty much everything else) for the first few days. Let’s just say that, after a few mornings of choosing between caffeine withdrawals or Starbucks runs, I was beyond elated when our trusty coffee maker was finally located.

Now that I’ve unpacked enough of my kitchen to lay my hands on a small pot, a measuring cup, and a spoon, you can bet I’ll be whipping up a batch of homemade coffee creamer to celebrate! Because it’s only right that I get reacquainted with my morning addiction in style, don’t you think? I’ve always loved flavored coffee creamers, but all of the artificial ingredients and additives in store-bought creamers have turned me to making my own homemade versions. And believe you me…once you discover how quick and easy it is to whip up your own all-natural coffee creamer — and once you taste how yummy it is — there’s no turning back!

This Chocolate Almond variation is my latest favorite. Starting with a base of whole milk and heavy cream, it’s naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup (which happens to be my unrefined sweetener of choice when making coffee creamers). This creamer is also full of flavor thanks to cocoa powder, almond extract, and vanilla extract. The almond flavor beautifully complements the rich chocolate, and the vanilla smooths everything out.

But who really cares about all of that jibberish. Bottom line? All-Natural Chocolate Almond Coffee Creamer is a total breakfast (or any time of day) treat! It may even make going without your coffee maker for 4 1/2 days (almost) worth it. 😉

All-Natural Chocolate Almond Coffee Creamer

Yield: about 2 1/2 cups

All-Natural Chocolate Almond Coffee Creamer

All-natural Chocolate Almond Coffee Creamer is sweetened with pure maple syrup and flavored with cocoa powder, almond extract, and vanilla extract for a decadent, delicious way to dress up your morning cup 'o joe!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Combine cream, milk, and maple syrup in a small pot set over medium heat. Stir together until bubbles start forming around the edges of the pot and mixture is very warm. Remove pot from heat and whisk in cocoa powder, almond extract, and vanilla extract until cocoa powder is completely dissolved. Allow to cool at room temperature for about 30 minutes before transferring to a tightly-sealed jar or bottle and storing in the refrigerator for 7 to 10 days. Shake well before using.

Notes

Feel free to adjust the milk-to-cream ratio if you prefer your creamer lighter or richer, and you may also tweak the amount of maple syrup depending on how sweet you like your coffee.

If you are bothered by the skin that forms on top of the creamer while it sits at room temperature, you may strain the creamer through a fine mesh sieve before storing.
