Make Starbucks vanilla creamer at home!

This post would of made no sense for me to do 2 years ago when I didn’t drink coffee… I drink it quite often now though… Enough that I make creamer. Let me tell you, it’s a lot easier to make this creamer than to drive to a Starbucks and pay too much for a coffee, because more than likely you already have all the ingredients in your home already.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 quart & Half pint Mason jars
  • 4 cups of half and half
  • 14 ounces of sweetened condensed milk (one can)
  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
  • Measuring cups & spoons
  • Medium pouring bowl
  • Whisk

Directions:

  • Add half and half and vanilla extract to the bowl and while whisking, slowing pour in sweetened condensed milk.
  • Whisk for about one minute; until condensed milk is broken up.
  • Use creamer, or transfer to Mason jars for long term storage.
  • It can be stored in the refrigerator for 5 days. Shake before each use to recombine ingredients.

I use this with ice coffee because I prefer cold drinks, but it’s delicious with hot coffee too! Enjoy.

Please take my survey below. I’d love to hear your feedback!

17 reasons why you are winning at MOMing.

20180429_102217_0001

We all have days where we feel like horrible moms. Where nothing is going right and we feel like we are just failing at everything we do. Can’t seem to calm your kids down. Lunch consists of cheese and French fries. Just everything seems to be going wrong, but I am here to tell you how you are actually winning at MOMing. Here is 17 things that prove that you got this mom thing down!

  1. Giving Birth. – This alone deserves an award.
  2. Coming home with the same amount of kids you left with.
  3. Not killing someone when you receive unwanted parenting advice.
  4. Moving the clothes from the washer to the dryer.
  5. Remembering to turn the dryer on.
  6. Drinking an entire cup of coffee, HOT!
  7. Refraining from offering unsolicited advice to a new parent.200-10
  8. Getting a break that isn’t in the bathroom.
  9. Catching your kids puke in your bare hands with no second thought. This is always a mom’s first thought when their kids puke… I’m going to catch this sh*t in my hands.
  10. Not puking when you just caught your kids puke in your hands.th
  11. Showering. We can be honest here, since becoming a mom, you find yourself taking less showers.
  12. Showering alone. We hardly get to do this anymore, that and going pee by ourselves.
  13. At the end of the day, your kids are still alive. It’s hard work keeping little humans alive. Go you!
  14. You feed your kids 3 meals a day. Regardless if it’s French fries and cheese. It’s still food.
  15. Remembering to buy diapers BEFORE you run out.
  16. Despite your lack of sleep, social skills and the fact that you have no life, you didn’t run away.jfgj
  17. You actually got to eat a full meal without having it picked at by your little humans. – This is probably the rarest thing to ever happen because your food is always better than their food even though it’s the same food. So even if this only happens once in a blue moon, you are still winning!
