I decided to take on a little kitchen challenge: homemade coffee creamer.

I figured if store-bought coffee creamer is good, then homemade has to be better.

Guess what? It is.

My favorite coffee shop creation is the caramel macchiato. Rich, dark caramel floating atop strong coffee. I can’t get enough. At five bucks a pop, I’m afraid that’s a bit too rich for my blood.

So, I did the next best thing, I brought the coffee shop to me.

Making homemade creamer is unbelievably easy. All you’ll need is milk, half and half, caramel (homemade or store-bought), and almond extract. Mix all of the ingredients together in a large measuring cup and, viola, you have homemade coffee creamer.

The combination of milk and half and half creates a thick, silky base for the creamer. I used a generous amount of homemade caramel, because we can’t have a caramel macchiato without gobs of sweet, buttery caramel. A touch of almond extract is added to create that signature macchiato flavor that I love so much.

I tend to go a bit overboard and drown my coffee with this rich creamer. You can swirl as much or as little as you like in your morning coffee. It’s delicious in both hot and iced coffee.
