I have searched far and wide compliments of the www.com however I have yet to find a recipe for homemade CoffeeMate. Any recipes or links to a recipe would be tremendously appreciated.

Thank you so much.

Looking at the ingredients (vegetable oil, corn syrup, casein - milk protein), it seems unlikely that you will be able to make it yourself.

Yeah, there's some things added I don't believe most people would be able to have...

Mix powdered milk, powdered sugar, hot chocolate mix and cinnamon or something powdered that adds the flavors you seek. I used to have a recipe for something like this but now I can't find it.

Thank you and if you do come across the recipe you have I would like to see it if you don't mind and have the time to post.

I found one idea ...


Quote:
It's very easy to make a good, dairy-powdered creamer. The secret is to add some fat to get the same mouth-feel you expect from, say, half and half or cream. I don't prefer this recipe over straight cream, but it's a good substitute if you run out, is shelf-stable and versatile. Use it also for making cocoa, chai and other mixes.

8 parts part skim milk powder
1-2 parts powdered sugar (I don't like my coffee at all sweet, so you can use even less, but there is a little sweetness in natural cream)
3 cereal spoonfuls of coconut oil, melted (I stick the glass jar in micro for a few seconds)

Combine first two ingredients in a bowl with a fork. Slowly add coconut oil, drizzling it over the top with a spoon. Mix well with a fork. There should be no clumps. Store in a jar with a lid in the pantry. To use, try a few spoonfuls in a cup then add your coffee while stirring until you get the color/flavor you want. The oil adds the mouthfeel that you expect from cream. Coconut oil is a healthy fat as well. It stays solid in the powder mix but will melt into your coffee as soon as you pour it. I would make mine with less sugar next time, but I would say 1 part sugar to 8 parts milk powder is about right :-) Enjoy

Interesting. I was thinking the oil would be difficult to substitute for. The question will be whether this is any less expensive than CoffeeMate.

It's problematic if you are trying to avoid dairy, though.

If any oil will withstand long periods without going bad, it's coconut oil. I never use powdered creamer because of the additives as mentioned in previous posts. Surprisingly, I'm lactose intolerant but I'm okay if I use half n half, which is what I use in my coffee. No sugar, just cream.
