Have you ever made homemade coffee creamer? I make creamers occasionally (mostly when I want to try a new flavor). I recently made a delicious Cinnamon Roll Coffee Creamer. Yum! It was the perfect addition to make my beloved coffee NOT taste like coffee!

I found this particular recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try as I am a HUGE fan of cinnamon rolls. And coffee. Seriously… how could you go wrong mixing the two tastes together… in an easy to prepare coffee creamer?

How To Make Cinnamon Roll Coffee Creamer

Combine milk and half and half in a saucepan. Whisk in the brown sugar. Heat this up a little bit on LOW heat, but DO NOT BOIL.  Remove from heat.

Milk and half and half are heated to make coffee creamer.

Add the cinnamon and vanilla extract to the slightly heated milk mixture. Whisk to combine. The cinnamon will incorporate itself better into the creamer when the milk is warm.

Cinnamon and vanilla are added to milk mixture for creamer..

Once mixture has cooled slightly, you can add this cinnamon roll coffee creamer to your cup of coffee or store in refrigerator until ready to use.

How Much Creamer Does This Recipe Make?

This recipe makes approximately 2 cups of creamer, which fills a standard size creamer bottle up about half way. If you want to make more, simply double the recipe… easy!

How Do I Store Cinnamon Roll Coffee Creamer?

To store, simply pour the mixture into a covered container.  I like using empty, clean creamer bottles when I make homemade coffee creamer. Using a funnel really helps get it into the container! If you peel off the old labels from used creamer bottles, you can see your beautiful homemade cinnamon roll coffee creamer inside!

Pouring the creamer through a funnel into bottle.

Cinnamon roll coffee creamer can be stored in refrigerator for 5-6 days once prepared. Be sure to give the bottle a good shake to re-mix ingredients before each use.

Why I Use Half and Half For This Recipe

The original recipe called for heavy cream, and I tried it that way the first time I made this. The next time I ended up replacing the heavy cream with half and half. I did that because the whipping cream thickened over time from shaking the bottle each time before adding it to my coffee. It simply got way too thick over the course of a few days.

Guess what? This cinnamon roll coffee creamer tastes great when made with half and half! Problem solved! That’s how I’ve made it ever since!

Servings: 32 (2 cups total)

Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup Half and Half
  • 2 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (use pure vanilla extract for the best taste!)
  • 4 Tablespoons packed brown sugar (light or dark-I used dark)
  1. Pour the milk and half and half into a medium sized pan; add the brown sugar. Whisk to combine ingredients. Warm up the milk mixture on low, but do NOT let it come to a boil. When milk mixture is heated through, but NOT boiling, remove pan from heat.
  2. Add cinnamon and vanilla extract; whisk these into the milk mixture until fully integrated. Let creamer cool to room temperature, then pour into a large bottle or jar (I used an old, clean and empty "store bought" creamer container). Make sure the container you select has a lid.
  3. Cover the bottle and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  4. Before using, give the bottle a little shake each time to redistribute the ingredients. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

*You MAY substitute heavy whipped cream for the Half and Half for a "creamier" creamer. I also tried it that way first, but found I didn't like the way the cream eventually "firmed or clumped up" after being shaken each time before using.

    Sounds yummy but I have a question. I can store it for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. 2 cups of creamer is a lot to use in 5 days, that’s almost a half cup a day. Is this the maximum store time?

  2. It sounds yummy, I’ll be making it soon! I think it’s not just “clumping”, the cream could be turning into butter!

    I just finished making this recipe I have tried other recipes that have powdered cinnamon this time I used cinnamon sticks I infused the flavor of the sticks in the cooking of the milk. Yum this reminds me of arroz con leche maybe because I used the cinnamon sticks but I did take the sticks out at the end and strained the remain sticks at the end. Can’t wait to use this tomorrow.

  4. Any recommendations on how to get the cinnamon to dissolve better? I followed the directions to a T and at the bottom of every cup of coffee, I had to chew the last few sips because all of the cinnamon settled to the bottom.

    Lol. Shaking whipping cream makes an awesome cinnamon roll butter.
    But anywho, I used your recipe and altered it a bit.
    I used dry milk, coffee creamer, vanilla powder to make it portable and longer lasting.
    My goodness we have every yummy recipe
    I did add it to my hot chocolate and wowsers
    Thank you for sharing.

    • I have not used it for this creamer, but am positive you could use it. The end result won’t be as creamy, but it will sure taste good! Have a wonderful day, Lisa!

    • Good morning, Abby! I have never made this creamer with almond milk, but I don’t see any reason you could not substitute it. The creamer will probably have a slightly different taste, but if you like it that way, then I truly hope you enjoy it! If you try it made that way, I hope you will re-comment on how it was, because a lot of viewers may appreciate knowing your results! Have a great day!

    • Good morning, Jennifer! Thanks for writing, and I hope you are happy with the results for this coffee creamer! Have a wonderful day!
