Chocolatey goodness that’s easily made in the comfort of your own home? Sign me up! There’s simply nothing better than a nice yummy mocha, but everyone makes their mocha differently.
Moreover, at a lot of coffee shops, they can be on the pricier side of the menu. So many things can be done with mocha, as well. Mocha is delicious on its own, but you can add so many different flavors to create a new drink every time, from caramel to peppermint.
While an easy way to get mocha in your daily cup of joe may be a mocha coffee creamer from your local supermarket, an even easier way is to make your own! This recipe I have here for a homemade mocha coffee creamer is so easy to make and allows you to make any adjustments you’d like.
What is Mocha Coffee Creamer?
Store-bought coffee creamers in the flavor mocha are very popular, as brands from Coffee-Mate to International Delight have mocha coffee creamers in their range. There are also many variations, ranging from salted caramel to the fan-favorite peppermint mocha during the holiday season.
Using a mocha coffee creamer can make your cup of coffee a chocolatey dream. Mocha-flavored coffee is considered one of the most popular types of coffee, which is why you’ll see it available at many different coffee shops.
How to Make Your Own Mocha Coffee Creamer
So, without further ado, allow me to show you just how to make your own mocha coffee creamer right from home. This recipe is simply sweet, full of chocolatey goodness, and super easy to make.
- 1/2 cup of sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- sealable airtight container
First, you’ll want to put the sweetened condensed milk in a small bowl and add the cocoa powder to it. Stir the ingredients together until thoroughly combined. This is important because you want to make sure that the cocoa powder gets entirely mixed in before you add it to your coffee creamer container.
Next, you can pour the cocoa powder and sweetened condensed milk mixture into your sealable airtight container. I used a mason jar for easier mixing and storing.
Now you can add the milk and vanilla to the container, close it up, and shake until completely combined. And that’s it! Your mocha coffee creamer is now ready for use!
Some Tips and Tricks
For this recipe I decided to make a hot latte by putting a bit of the mocha coffee creamer in a cup, adding some espresso, and just a bit of steamed milk. This made it taste almost like hot chocolate; sweet, comforting, and warm!
As this is a coffee creamer, you could just add it to any coffee or espresso and it would work perfectly fine, still giving you that flavor of chocolate. An even further yummy step would be to steam up a bit of this cream, add it to your favorite drip coffee, and enjoy a heavenly chocolate dream. Of course, this mocha creamer can also be used in iced drinks, or whatever you prefer!
As I mentioned earlier, you can always add any other flavors, such as peppermint extract or some salted caramel syrup to this homemade creamer to amp up your mocha coffee beverage. Just keep in mind that this coffee creamer is good in the refrigerator for up to a week and remember to shake it up before each use!
