Peppermint Mocha Creamer

Have you found yourself staring at the shelves wondering “why can’t I find peppermint mocha creamer?” It seems like the seasonal creamers are hit or miss when I am at the store. Or they are in stock for such a short time, and not when I am craving them.

As a result, I have made it my mission to be able to make my own favorites when the craving hits, and I am sharing them all with you! Have you tried my eggnog creamer from a few weeks ago yet? Sooo good!

Creating creamers without condensed milk has become a personal challenge of mine. I find I can control the sugar and the flavor so much easier with just cream and whole milk. Sometimes condensed milk just gets too syrupy and sweet for me.

Worth mentioning is that by not using condensed milk but heavy cream and whole milk you can use a frother to create an AMAZING cold foam for your coffee. This has become my wintertime treat!

When you make your own creamer using real sugar you can create versions and substitutes that work for you. I have a friend that prefers monk fruit sweeteners.

You can make this with a 1:1 exchange for the sugar and it’s delicious. I enjoy learning how people customize things for their diets and preferences.

When making peppermint mocha creamer you will want to warm all of the ingredients together in a saucepan to dissolve the sugar and cocoa powder. You don’t need to bring it to a rolling boil or anything crazy just enough to incorporate everything smoothly.

My kids have discovered this creamer and love to pour it into their hot chocolate. The combination of heavy cream and peppermint gives it a rich, delicious flavor and heavenly scent!

Homemade Coffee Creamers

Homemade coffee creamers with simple ingredients are one of my favorite winter time treats. While they can be enjoyed year-round, there is something about fall and winter that has me craving them more often.

There is no better season than sweater weather and pumpkin spice time. Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer is the perfect at-home fall treat.

Italian Cream Liqueur is perfect for sipping, for stirring into hot coffee or tea, for drizzling over a rich cake, or even for serving with berries.

      This will keep nicely for a week at least, Teresa. The creamer will be good for however long the dairy ingredients are fresh.
