    Default What would do with flavored coffee creamer

    I have a bunch of liquid flavored coffee creamers left that are coming up on their dates. Has anyone ever used them in a recipe in baking or cooking? A flavoring in something besides coffee/tea?

    Have
    gingerbread
    Apple caramel
    Irish creme
    chocolate truffle
    vanilla caramel
    christmas peppermint
    pumpkin spice

    Think there's more. They were really cheap on clearance AND with a coupon. Most were Christmas flavors if that helps

    If you can freeze do you have to open the container and freeze then put the lid back on?

    I haven't but I think the apple carmel one would be great in a apple crumb coffee cake. One of the ones with sliced apples.

    The pumpkin spice and gingerbread ones I'd try those in old fashioned tomato soup cake recipe. The pumpkin pie one could even be used in pumpkin pie instead of evaporated milk.

    Christmas peppermint & chocolate truffle I'd use in a chocolate cake recipe. I'd use it to make the icing too.

    the vanilla carmel & Irish cream would be good made as puddings and used as filling between cake layers before they were iced.

    Flavored Creamer Icing

    2 cups of powdered sugar
    cup of liquid creamer
    2 tablespoons of butter or margarine, melted

    In a large mixing bowl beat all ingredients together until creamy. Spread on top of dessert. Makes enough to cover a 9 x 13-inch dessert.

    Flavored Creamer Dream Bars

    1 stick ( cup) butter or margarine, softened
    2/3 cup of packed brown sugar(divided)
    1 cups of all-purpose flour (divided)
    cup of flavored liquid creamer
    3 large eggs
    teaspoon salt
    1 cup of shredded coconut
    1 cup of chopped pecans
    cup of chopped dates
    1 recipe of icing




    Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and 1/3 cup of your brown sugar until creamy. Add 1 cups of the flour; beat just until mixed. Set remaining brown sugar and flour aside. Press the mixture into the bottom of your greased baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

    In a large mixing bowl, beat liquid creamer, eggs, the remaining brown sugar, remaining flour and salt until mixed. Stir in the coconut, pecans and dates. When well combined, spread the mixture evenly over the cooled crust. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the top turns golden brown. Remove and cool completely on a wire rack. Make the icing recipe and spread evenly over the top. Cut into bars the size you like.

    Other Ideas

    cookies, muffins, carrot cake, chocolate cake, muffins, any bread recipe that called for milk


    If you had the room for it, I would make some cookie mixes and freeze them.

    Great ideas so far! I like it on cold cereal. Basically any recipe that calls for cream or half and half could use your flavored creamers. I've not tried freezing them.

    I have used regular powdered creamer to replace milk when I had no milk in the house. Never a problem using it. So the flavored creamers could make some interesting pancakes, muffins, scones, cakes, cookies. May want to reduce the amount of sugar.

    For me, flavored creamer NEVER gets close to the expiration date. lol

    Can you use it in warm milk to flavour it - great if you have kids Kick up some vanilla pudding, I second the french toast thing from Grainlady - or flavoured pancakes YUM!! OR how about adding it to ice cream to make flavoured milkshakes or spicing up plain yoghurt w/granola-cereal.

    Have to try the oatmeal and yogurt ideas. I freeze my creamers when thet are on sale. I must have 6-8 on hand right now. I take them out the night before I need them and put them in the fridge. They have never seemed any different from unfrozen.

    I freeze them all the time......bought a few of the Xmas selections to freeze as that is the only time they offer them.

    I remove the lid and take out about 1/4 (1/2) cup or so. Put lid back on and freeze. This allows for expansion in freezing. They won't explode without doing this but the bottom of the container may bulge.

    Have used them on cereal when I was out of milk....they were good - but pretty expensive milk!!

    The french toast recipe sounds yummy.....will have to try that one!
