53 New Recipes Week 4: Cinnamon Strudel Coffee Creamer

One thing I used to love was flavored coffee creamers.  When I started cutting back on processed foods, those coffee creamers were one of the first things to go.  I do miss them from time to time.  This week's recipe is a simple but yummy one.  I made Homemade Cinnamon Strudel Coffee Creamer.

I do not have a picture as coffee creamer is not particularly exciting.  I will tell you that it was easy to make.  I did a half recipe of half & half, maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla. (I did not have any almond extract so I just omitted it.)

The smell of the cinnamon mixture hitting the hot coffee is heavenly.  I normally skip sugar in my coffee, but the maple syrup has just the tiniest bit of sweetness.  The above link takes you to a page with several options if cinnamon is not your thing.  Once I get some almond extract I will definitely be trying the chocolate almond coffee creamer.

I doubt I will make this an everyday addition to my coffee.  I will make it an occasional treat though. Are you a fan of flavored coffees?

Well before I was diagnosed with Diabetes II I disliked the heavy sweetness of coffee creamers even while I loved the flavors otherwise. Then of course so many of the creamers (and creams and other dairy products) have carrageenan. I search hard for creamers with out that. I will try some of these. Wish you lived nearer. I think I have three bottles of almond extract!
