  1. Stir coconut milk, almond milk, sugar, coconut oil, brown rice syrup, and vanilla extract together in a saucepan over medium-low heat until sugar is completely dissolved, 3 to 5 minutes; remove from heat.
  2. Blend coconut milk mixture with an immersion blender or in a blender until smooth and creamy. Cool to room temperature.
  3. Transfer whitener to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can substitute corn syrup or date syrup for the cane sugar.
  • The coconut oil gives this a rich texture but is optional. I prefer the creamier texture, but it will affect taste.
  • If gluten-free is not important to you, use a malted syrup instead of rice syrup as it will lend a nice flavor to the coffee.

I do not use cream in my coffee but my sister does. She uses the powered coffee creamer. I made this for her when she was visiting and she loved it and will not go back to the powered stuff. Mad...

This recipe is great! I used agave nectar instead of the rice syrup. This is a delicious alternative to dairy creamer.
