Can You Make This Coffee Creamer Without Dairy?

Swap out the milk and the cream for your dairy-free milk of choice. Almond, soy, rice and coconut milk are popular choices. Just keep in mind that some of those dairy-free options do have a slight flavor to them.

How Long Does This Coffee Creamer Last In The Fridge?

You can enjoy this creamer for up to a week in the refrigerator. Make sure to store it in an air tight container or mason jar so that it stays fresh and doesn’t absorb other flavors from the refrigerator.

Give the creamer a quick shake before using as the spices will settle at the bottom while sitting.

    What an interesting idea! I go on creamer kicks from time to time, but I always wonder what’s in them. I’d much rather have one I made myself. And also, thanks for all those pumpkin cocktail inks!
