This Vanilla Bean Coffee Creamer could not be easier to throw together, but it is such a fun treat for your morning coffee. Pairs perfectly with Nature Valley™ Protein Soft Baked Granola Bites. Thanks Nature Valley for partnering with me for this delicious morning post!
How was your weekend? Mine was good, but BUSY! It is, unfortunately, coming to our attention that we need to act like adults. (WHOMP WHOMP) And when you are adults you can’t just play all weekend. You have to do nonsense. Like laundry.
Unfortunately, in addition to having to act like an adult, when you have kids, you have to make them act like adults. (I know that sounded confusing, but stick with me.) We had the conversation this weekend about how we really should make our kids put their shoes away and not allow them to leave chapstick uncapped under dressers because no one wants a 27 year old who leaves chapstick everywhere.
Thank goodness for my husband who took one for the team and cleaned the rooms of BOTH big kids with them. Seriously, walking in their rooms made my head want to explode. And the thought of standing in there with them and cleaning?? . . . I can’t even.
Husbands are the best.
Guess what else makes life easier?
These Nature Valley Granola Bites! I absolutely love snacks that I feel good about giving to my kids because they are high in fiber and packed with protein. Plus, these are soft, so even my littlest kiddo with her lack of teeth can dig into these! Seven grams of protein, zero trans fat, no artificial flavors, and no high fructose corn syrup! Winning.
And then you pair them with some coffee and this super simple to make homemade Vanilla Bean Coffee Creamer and your day is made.
This coffee creamer comes together so fast with just a few ingredients. And it makes your coffee feel like a dessert. Because I don’t love giving all my money over for a few vanilla beans, I made this with vanilla bean paste. Super handy and you can find it at stores like TJ Maxx for about $5 a bottle. So fun!
- 1/2 cup half and half
- 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Mix all the ingredients together.
- Store in the refrigerator and shake before use.
