It’s freezing here in Utah!  I don’t think I’m ever going to leave my comfy spot in front of the fire with my book and a warm creamy cup of coffee. Not just any cream, but homemade vanilla cream! I’m always looking for fun new options to add to my yummy vanilla. And this one is a gem! 

What I love about this recipe is that you can choose your favorite dairy/nondairy option. Whole milk, half and half. Even almond milk works! So to all those creamy coffee vanilla lovers, you got this!


  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Cup Cane Sugar ( or try agave)
  • 1 1/4 Cup Half & Half
  • 1 Tbsp Vanillapura Madagasgar/rum extract


  1. Dissolve sugar in water over medium heat.
  2. Remove from heat and add in vanilla extract
  3. Allow to cool completely.
  4. Stir in 1/2 & 1/2.
  5. Store in a jar or other airtight container.

 A serving size is 2 Tbsp. but more or less can be used, nutrition facts should be adjusted as necessary.

Thanks to Far From Normal for the great idea!
