Cinnamon and coffee creamer

Cinnamon is a little different than the typical flavors that we add to our Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer base. In recipes such as our Vanilla or Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamers, we use extract or flavored syrups to add flavor to the cream base.

Cinnamon, however, is not easily found in extract form. You can use powdered cinnamon OR you can go the extra step by cooking in cinnamon flavor with cinnamon sticks.

Both methods are given below and each results in a delicious homemade coffee creamer. We also list alternative ways to get the cinnamon flavor in, but we think this is the easiest and best way to do it.

Ground Cinnamon

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups Half & Half
  • 0.5 cups Heavy Cream
  • 7 oz Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon (or 2 Cinnamon sticks)
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Cinnamon Coffee Creamer Recipe

For the ground cinnamon method:

Add all ingredients into a mason jar and shake thoroughly until combined. Use a hand blender or milk frother to further mix in the cinnamon if needed.

The cinnamon will separate and fall to the bottom of the jar when stored in the fridge, so shake thoroughly before each use to evenly distribute before pouring.

For the cinnamon stick method:

Add all ingredients to a saucepan. Turn the heat on low and simmer for 30-45 minutes until the creamer reaches the desired flavor. Remove cinnamon sticks. Let cool and then add to a mason jar.

Alternatives

Of course, ground cinnamon isn’t the only way to get your cinnamon flavor into your creamer. If you’re able to find cinnamon extract, that’s a great alternative option! It will better blend into your creamer evenly and you won’t have the visible cinnamon flecks.

Another option for getting your cinnamon flavor is to use cinnamon syrup. This will also double as a sweetener. Check out our Hazelnut Coffee Creamer Recipe for precise measurements when using syrup as your flavor.

If you’re looking for a dairy-free option, try using oat milk. It’s smoother and thicker than other milk alternatives, and you can even get oat creamer that will add more richness.

Other dairy-free options would be using Lactaid-free milk with dairy-free creamers like Silk’s Dairy Free Heavy Cream.

Wanting to make it sugar-free? Consider using a sugar-free cinnamon-infused syrup! Or, use stevia extract for a more natural sweetener. Splenda is another sugar alternative that also works well in creamers.
