Why add coffee creamer to coffee?

Coffee creamer is added to coffee to give it a sweeter taste and it make the coffee less bitter. Homemade creamer is typically healthier than store bought since it can be easily customized.

3 – Add 1 cup of water to the bottom of your instant pot. Place the trivet inside with the two mason jars on the trivet.

4 – Set your Instant Pot to high pressure for 1 minute. This will make sure that all of the ingredients solidify together, especially the two extracts.

5 – Place in the fridge, or transfer to a larger container, for two hours or until ready to serve!

You can use this creamer in hot cocoa, or over iced coffee! I strongly encourage whipped cream!

Kept stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container, the coffee creamer should last up to two weeks.

Instant Pot Homemade Peppermint Mocha Creamer

Instant Pot homemade peppermint mocha creamer is a must this season! Peppermint and mocha are a great combo and pair great with any coffee of your choice.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups 1% milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 3 tablespoons baking cocoa

Instructions

  1. Mix all of your ingredients in a blender, or whisk. If you use a whisk, make sure everything is well incorporated.
  2. Add your blended ingredients to 2-pint size mason jars. Close them with canning jar lids. (Do not use plastic mason jar lids in the Instant Pot!)

  5. Place in the refrigerator, or transfer to a larger container, for two hours or until ready to serve!

Notes

You can use this creamer in hot cocoa, or over iced coffee! I strongly encourage whipped cream!

The Instant Pot needs to come to pressure before the cooking time starts, similar to an oven that needs to preheat. The cooking time doesn't actually start until pressure builds, which can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes, sometimes longer depending on how full the pot is and how much liquid there is inside. Once it reaches pressure the Instant Pot will beep, and the cook time will begin to count down. Please, make sure to consider that extra time when planning your meal.

Looks great and so easy! Two questions- how many servings did you use to caculate nutritional values. Also, I don’t have 2 pint mason jars- can I do this in a pot in pot (covered with tin foil?)

Hi Karen, there are 14 servings at 1/4 cup per serving. I haven't tried making this without the mason jars, but if you try this way let me know how it goes.

Great idea using Instant pot to melt the flavors together easily!! Can I sub the milk and condensed milk with vegan options too?

Hi Brenda, You can try subbing canned coconut milk for the condensed milk, but it will change the flavor. You can also use a plant based milk. Let me know how you like it if you make the changes. :)
