I went to the blog and found a source for many more coffee creamer recipes! Deliciously Organic has a list of great sounding coffee creamers, and I believe they are all organic! I decided to try the Honey Vanilla Creamer and share it with you all today.
Here's the recipe I used
1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup raw honey
2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine the milk, heavy cream and honey in a pan whisking until it starts to steam. Pull off the heat and add the vanilla extract. Pour into a jar and chill in the fridge.
That's it! Can you believe it, so so simple. I also made the pumpkin spice creamer from her blog and they both turned out so delicious!!
Next time I make them I'll try and cut out some of the fat by using skim milk, etc. I'm not sure how it will turn out, but I love being able to make my own creamer. It's a huge MUST have in our house so any way to make it fresher and cheaper I'm all over it!
Another recipe I wanted to share with you all was also something I came across on pinterest. It's called Pumpkin Cream Cheese!
I saw this recipe and had to try it since my husband and I both love anything pumpkin. This is definitely a keeper. It almost tastes like pumpkin pie filling on a bagel. Goes great in the mornings with a pumpkin spice coffee! I originally got the recipe from this blog. Here's how I made it.
8 oz of 1/3 less fat cream cheese softened
1/2 cup pumpkin puree - not pumpkin pie filling, make sure you get the plain puree
1/4 cup granulated sugar (I used a little more after tasting it. I wanted mine sweet.)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
Combine cream cheese and pumpkin puree in a mixer (or use a hand mixer) until uniform in color and there are no more cream cheese clumps. Add sugar until dissolved/incorporated. Then add the rest of the spices. Make sure you scrape the sides of the bowl and give it another spin. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.
I love to eat mine on those bagel thins toasted lightly. So good and tastes like fall!!
