Amaretto Coffee Creamer Recipe

What is Amaretto?

Amaretto is actually a well-known liqueur with a bittersweet almond flavor and cherry undertones. It’s described as having a similar flavor to marzipan, which is often used in baking cakes and similar desserts.

This slightly sweet and nutty flavor is popular in coffee and for good reason! The almond taste can really bring out certain notes in some coffee, or even complement others.

What is Amaretto Coffee Creamer?

Since many people have enjoyed amaretto in their coffee, the flavor can be found in the form of coffee syrups. However, it’s most commonly found in coffee creamers, as popular brands such as International Delight have an amaretto selection.

Amaretto really gives any coffee a nutty, warm, and baked sort of taste. With our recipe, you can use the coffee creamer in many different ways and create a delicious moment in your cup every time.

How to Make Your Own Amaretto Coffee Creamer

Amaretto Coffee Creamer Ingredients

You’ll Need:

  • 1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 ½ cups of milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • sealable container

The Process:

Step One:

pouring the sweetened condensed milk into a mason jar

First, you want to pour the can of sweetened condensed milk into your container of choice.

We used a mason jar for easier shaking and storing, we highly recommend doing this!

Step Two:

adding the liquid milk to your jar

Next, you can add the liquid milk to your jar. We used whole milk for our creamer, but if you’d prefer to use any milk substitute, that’s perfectly fine.

You could even use almond milk if you really wanted to add even more almond flavor to your amaretto creamer.

Step Three:

add the almond extract and cinnamon powder to the mixture

Finally, add the almond extract and cinnamon powder to the mixture. Once every ingredient is in, you can then close your container and shake it up to ensure that the sweetened condensed milk is combined.

Step Four:

putting a little of the creamer in two shots of espresso

Now that you’ve made your nutty amaretto coffee creamer, you can add it to whatever type of coffee you desire!

When we made this, we put just a little of the creamer in two shots of espresso and it was amazing! Later on, we also tried steaming a bit for some dark roast and that made the baked, nutty, and cinnamon flavors really come out.

The baked cinnamon and almond flavor makes for a comforting taste that’s not too sweet and not too bitter.
