It’s easy to make homemade cinnamon coffee creamer, but it’s not easy to find a great recipe. The reason is that most store-bought versions contain questionable ingredients.
That’s why I went ahead and made my own homemade cinnamon coffee creamer with real ingredients.
In this article, you’ll find a great-tasting recipe for cinnamon coffee creamer that you can make in just five minutes!
What is cinnamon coffee creamer?
The only thing that’s really noteworthy about this specific flavor is that it features cinnamon as an additional ingredient, which begs the question of how does it taste, and what is it exactly?
Cinnamon coffee creamer is made using sweetened condensed milk, whole milk, and ground cinnamon. It tastes slightly spicy with enough sweetness to flavor your favorite coffee!
I drink coffee mostly black without any additions because I enjoy the taste.
But for people who prefer a little extra flavor variety in their life or those who want to give their body an extra kick of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits – personal preference aside – cinnamon coffee creamer is worth checking out.
What ingredients are needed for this coffee creamer?
I wanted this homemade cinnamon coffee creamer to be simple to make, so you have more time left over to enjoy your day. For this recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- Sweetened condensed milk
- Whole milk
- Ground cinnamon
Using whole milk in this recipe will give it its full flavor, but you can also use lower-fat milk instead.
You can also incorporate some dairy-free milk in this recipe to change up the flavor and make it taste however you want.
Because the condensed milk is already sweet, you won’t add sugar to the coffee creamer, which saves time.

Which cinnamon is best used?
Because the main flavor of this coffee creamer is cinnamon, it’s essential to use a good quality one.
There are many different kinds of cinnamon, but the ones to pick would be Ceylon or Cassia for their bold flavor.
For this recipe, it’s best to use ground cinnamon, as this is easily mixed with the rest of the ingredients so that you can make this coffee creamer in just a few minutes.
If you only have cinnamon sticks and would like to use them instead, it’s best to let it steep with condensed milk and whole milk. Have a look below at how to do so:
- Simply add two cinnamon sticks, along with the sweetened condensed milk and whole milk, to a small saucepan.
- Heat the mixture until it’s hot but not boiling, and lower the heat.
- Let the cinnamon steep for five minutes. After that, remove it from the heat and let it cool completely.
- Then, remove the cinnamon sticks from the coffee creamer and store the coffee creamer in the fridge.

Which coffees go well with this cinnamon coffee creamer?
Once you’ve made this coffee creamer, you can use it for any coffee you like. It works well with all coffees, like your morning cup of coffee.
You might want to try a dark roast coffee. Dark roasts offer a fuller flavor and sometimes even chocolate undertones.
They can be too strong for some people, though; “light” roasts are the way to go if that’s an issue. Full-bodied coffees like heavy or espresso roasts without any robusta or other additives also go well with this cinnamon creamer.
You could also try using a medium roast, a great in-between flavor of the dark and light roasts. If you want to get more information about medium roasted coffee, you can find all the information about it here.
Depending on your flavor preference, you can use a French press, Chemex, or Hario V60 for your daily coffee.
