You know those flavored coffee creamers at the grocery?  French vanilla, Hazelnut, Irish Creme, Chocolate caramel…they all look delicious. Unless you’re like me, and you read the fine print. No, thanks.

And no problem. Here’s how I make my own.

1 cup milk, heavy cream or almond milk (depending on how creamy or how parve you want it)
1t vanilla extract
1t almond extract
1T maple syrup
1t cocoa powder
dash cinnamon
1 TJ’s vanilla cinnamon tea bag (optional)

Add the cocoa powder and cinnamon to coffee grinds and brew as usual. Mix the other ingredients into the milk and microwave for two minutes (cover with syran wrap to avoid a microwave explosion). Let it brew for another 3 minutes if you’re using the tea bag. Use as much as desired immediately and save the rest in the fridge for later.
