Most of us can't get ourselves motivated in the morning without a cup of coffee or three. I take mine with cream and sugar. I also really like some of the flavored creamers that are out there. Me being
A couple of things here. I tried this as written and I didn't care for it one little bit. I added more milk (Like to the rim of the jar) I used some Vanilla Coffee Syrup the first time. It was wayyy to sweet.
I should have let Mikey try it, he likes everything. (For those too young to remember - there was a commercial for Life cereal a few years ago "Let Mikey try it, he likes everything") Good grief I feel older than dirt for having to explain that one.!
Back to you Jane..... :-)
I would recommend using the vanilla extract instead of the syrup. It's much better and besides this recipe is already pretty sweet because of the condensed milk. You might even want to add more milk. I think next time I'll make my own sweetened condensed milk as it's pretty simpe to make too.
I had to make this a couple of times, playing with the measurements but for all this build-up its a recipe as easy as it gets.
Here's the original link
And here's mine
14oz sweetened condensed milk
2 cups milk (any kind will do)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract OR Vanilla Coffee Syrup(if you like it ultra sweet try using the syrup)
1 quart mason jar
Pour it all in a mason jar and shake shake shake.
Add it to your coffee! How simple is that?
So there you have it. I can't afford to buy fancy creamers for my coffee but when I can find the condensed milk on sale I'll sure grab a couple of cans and whip up some fancy coffee creamer! You can also make a host of different flavors using this as a base. You might even want to add more milk. Or dream up your own! I think next time I'll make my own sweetened condensed milk as it's pretty simple too.
Here's a link for some ideas.
Who knows....one day I might make some ice cream too.
