Remember that time I made Homemade Dulce de Leche? Well, I had 3 jars in my fridge that needed using. One, I ate with a spoon. One went into this pie. The third? Became DIY Homemade Dulce de Leche Coffee Creamer!

Dulce de Leche Coffee Creamer

So you remember when I made homemade dulce de leche, right? Y’all loved that I made it in a slow cooker. When I was trying to figure out what to make with it, I remembered my funfetti coffee creamer and the lightbulb went on.

I’m a girl that loves her coffee creamer. I love it in coffee, I love it in desserts like cheesecake dip or drinks like sugar cookie martinis. And I really love making it homemade because I can make flavors I can’t buy in the store.

Did you know that coffee creamer is super easy to make? Really, it only has two base ingredients: sweetened condensed milk and milk. Then you add your favorite extracts or flavorings. And dulce de leche is just thick sweetened condensed milk which makes it the perfect caramel coffee creamer!

  1. One I ate with a spoon…haaa! haaaa! This looks so incredibly delicious. I know what I’m doing the next time I make dulce de leche!

  2. Thanks! Great recipe. I’ve been bringing different chilled coffees to work in mason jars. This will be a great addition.

  3. 1) I have a dental apt. next month where I have to have tissue grafting done. So looking forward to that. NOT. 2) Fellow germaphobe here *raises hand* …Howard Hughes ain’t got nothin’ on me, and 3) coffee is optional with this creamer, right? Because I’d just drink it on its own.

    1. 1. OH I’m so sorry. That’s worse than a physical. I’ll commiserate with you. And bring you pudding! 2. LOL, I get it from my dad and when I get really bad I just stop and say “WWDD?” and dial it back 10 degrees. 3. THANK YOU!

  4. Physicals SUCK! Dulce de leche helps!! My co worker would be allll over this!! Must make for her sometime!! 🙂

  5. Making your homemade dulce de leche tonight so I can use it in an ice cream recipe later this week. I’ll have to set aside enough for this creamer. It looks absolutely divine!

  6. I love your homemade coffee creamer recipes, so delicious! I could probably just drink this dulce le leche coffee creamer 😉

  7. Oh my word, you know how much I love this right? My coffee thanks you!! And as for doctors, one word: UGH.
