I have known/met a few people who are Vegetarian, Vegan, 100% Organic and/or Raw eaters, etc, etc… but I myself have not become one of them. Not yet at least 🙂
However, I am overly freaked out about feeding my family, or myself, something that has been covered in pesticides or packed full of artificial chemicals to extend it’s shelf life.
By all means, I am no expert on what you should or should not eat, but I do know there are countless products on the market that are packed full of ingredients that are unknown to me. Most of which I can’t even pronounce. My beloved coffee creamer is one of them.
So I decided to try and make my own. I mean really… how hard could it be?
French Vanilla Creamer
1 cup 2% milk (That is what I had on hand. You can use whole milk. I think I’ll try it with non-fat next time. I’ll post the results)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
4 Tbsp pure maple syrup (I was 1 Tbsp short so I added 1 Tbsp on honey)
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
Whisk together all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until milk & cream are warmed (few minutes only, do not let it boil).
Remove pan from heat, cover & let it sit for 30 minutes.
Pour creamer into a glass bottle or plastic as shown in the picture. Should last 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator.
