This recipe evolved from the pandemic shortages. For quite a long time, my favorite coffee creamer was not to be found anywhere around where we live. I thought we were prepared for just about anything, but I was NOT prepared to go without my coffee creamer, LOL. So, I made my own and it's even better than the stuff I used to buy!
