This recipe below is the perfect way to enjoy the taste of creamer without worrying too much about what's in it. Let's go!
Coffee Creamer Recipe
Condensed Milk Ingredients
2 cups organic whole milk
1 cup raisins or dried figs
Healthy Coffee Creamer Ingredients
1 1/2 cups condensed milk from above
1 cup organic whole milk
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
Condensed Milk Instructions
Add the milk, coffee, and raisins into a heavy saucepan.
Warm it up on low heat, and stir occasionally (8 - 10 minutes). The low heat allows the sugars in the raisins to dissolve as well as the coffee to extract.
Simmer the milk mixture on medium-to-low heat for roughly 30 minutes or until the milk has darkened to an almost grey color, reduced by half, and thickened. If you notice foam building on top, scoop it out with spoon.
When ready, remove from the heat and allow it to cool completely.
Strain the condensed milk to remove any raisin bits and coffee grounds.

Let it cool down and store in the refrigerator.
If you want to add additional flavor you can add a couple of drops of hazelnut extract, peppermint extract, or any pure flavoring of your choice.
