Coffee creamer is a staple recipe that every home cook should have in their repertoire. The base is easy, and you can control the flavoring and sweetness levels, which is something I really enjoy because I find that store-bought creamers are often overpowering. The simplicity of this recipe will allow you to focus on the fun part: dreaming up delicious flavors that will bring your morning cup of joe to a whole new level.

This spiced vanilla creamer is sweet, rich, and addictive, while I like to describe my frazier fir creamer as a pine forest in a mug. It’s a wintry creamer packed with the fresh and bright flavors of fragrant frazier fir and has the subtle sweetness of coconut sugar. Here's the best part: If you haven't tossed your Christmas tree yet, snag a few branches, rinse them off, and get to work on this recipe (or just go foraging in the nearest wooded area). It's so easy.
