A R Caswell Recipe

Makes a little over 2 cups of liquid non-dairy creamer
5 Min
10 Min

This recipe is from a container of generic plain powdered non-dairy creamer.

It is a refrigerated, liquid non-dairy creamer, and can be used in coffee, tea, cocoa, or any beverage that you would add a creamer to.

1 c
powdered non-dairy creamer (plain or flavored)
1 c
very hot water (not boiling)
1 c
cold water
1/2 - 1 tsp
*if so desired, flavoring or extract of your choice

Directions Step-By-Step

In a oven-proof glass Pyrex type measuring cup with a handle, heat 1 cup of water in microwave until very HOT (but not boiling) approximately 30-45 seconds.

Depending on the type of microwave, it could require a few seconds longer.
After removing the heated water from the microwave oven, slowly add 1 cup of the powdered non-dairy creamer to the heated water and stir to mix thoroughly.

If the creamer does not readily dissolve or mix well, reheat the water. The hot mixture should not have any lumps in it.
After the powder has mixed well with the heated water, add 1 cup of COLD water and stir to mix thoroughly.

Let cool slightly, and store in airtight container in refrigerator. This is now a liquid non-dairy creamer, equivalent to the liquid non-dairy creamer sold in the refrigerated section of the grocery.
If desired, 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of a liquid extract or flavoring such as vanilla could be added if you used the plain non-dairy creamer powder.

Flavorings or extracts should be added after the liquid has cooled.
This recipe is basically a ratio. Larger amounts could be mixed by this ratio:

1 part of very hot water
1 part non-dairy creamer
1 part cold water

Just remember to MIX WELL, and I hope you enjoy it! :-)

my husband goes through so much creamer that I am going to try this to see if we can cut some of the cost. Thank you for sharing.

I have seen a person scoop out or pour nearly half a small container of powdered creamer into their coffee at a time, no measuring at all! So perhaps this premixed version will limit their "help yourself" behavior.

Also, a lot of people, myself included, still need the little bit of cooling off that comes from adding a refrigerated creamer. Or else I put the powdered creamer in and then a small ice cube so it doesn't scald my mouth with the first sip. This solves that problem. :)

What I like about this recipe is the ability to make it your own "favorite flavor" liquid coffee creamer.
