DIY Cinnamon Bun Coffee Creamer

Finally. It’s FINALLY less than 90 degrees in the southeast. Nothing says “fall” like cinnamon, am I right?

I don’t know about you, but I enjoy my morning (and afternoon) coffee with some sweetened coffee creamer. But we all know: things are just better homemade.

Making your own coffee creamer is just so easy. There are so many things you can do once you figure out a good base. I don’t like to rant too much, so I’ll get on with it. A couple of notes first, though.

  • I did not want my creamer to have a syrup-like consistency. However, if you’d like a thicker coffee creamer, I recommend adding sweetened condensed milk and removing the white sugar.
  • You can make this diet-compatible by using alternative sweeteners and/or almond milk. It’s literally melting some things in some milk and adding cream to it. The possibilities are endless.
  • I like my coffee creamer sweet, but not too sweet. That being said, if you’d like a sweeter coffee creamer, add a bit more sugar!

Alright good beans, let’s jump right in.

DIY Cinnamon Bun Coffee Creamer


  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (use dark brown sugar for a more authentic cinnamon bun flavor, but light will work fine)
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Heat the milk in a saucepan gently (a medium-low heat works fine). You aren’t aiming for scalding, just enough to melt the sugars and marry the flavors.
  2. Add the cinnamon, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla. Stir your mixture often as it heats.
  3. Once your sugars have dissolved, remove the mixture from heat, and stir in your cream.
  4. As a storing suggestion, check out these milk bottles. This recipe will yield about 24 fluid ounces. Be sure to give a gentle shake to disperse the cinnamon before use!

Give it a try! Make it your own! Try it in a chai tea latte!
