Homemade Coffee Mix and Creamer

Several months ago I set out to try to make some homemade powdered coffee creamer since I was not able to find any recipes online and the store bought stuff is filled with some super gross stuff. I mean how can a powder make froth? That just scares me folks. Anyway I kept tweaking and tweaking to try to get the same taste but was never able to duplicate it however the one I was able to come up with is pretty good and taste as if fresh milk with a hint of vanilla was added to your coffee which is great for those times when you’re traveling or out of milk, right?

My homemade coffee mixture has been something that I have also been working on for a while as well. All of the current recipes I saw online would say that you have to add at least 5-6 tablespoons to get a good cup, that’s insane and I was content on making it normal you know maybe 1 spoonful. I would make and test and either it would end up having too much sugar, to milky or the coffee was too weak. After many test and mixes I finally found the perfect combination. Also one thing I noticed was that no one adds a bit of cream of tartar to their mixes which are a must for stabilizing the powders. Coffee mixes are perfect when you’re in a hurry to add to boiling water or hot milk and they also make pretty cool gifts.

Coffee Mix:
9 tablespoons instant coffee
6 tablespoons milk powder
3-1/2 tablespoons of powdered coffee creamer
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon cream of tartar

1. In a food processor add instant coffee, milk power, coffee creamer, sugar, cocoa powder and cream of tartar. Pulse until combined into a powder.

Yields: approximately 1-1/2 cups

Coffee Creamer:
1 cup milk powder
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 tablespoon powdered vanilla

1. In a jar add milk powder, cream of tartar and powdered vanilla. Close lid tightly and shake.
