Frozen Creamer

I love my coffee with some flavored liquid creamer. Hazelnut is my fave with a little cinnamon shaken on top when the mood strikes. For various reasons, I don't drink coffee as often as I used to. Since I'm the only coffee drinker in the house, I was throwing a lot of that expensive liquid creamer down the drain.

I knew the creamer could be frozen, so I had the bright idea of freezing it in ice cube trays. I thought after they were frozen that I could put them in a freezer bag and use as needed. Well, that didn't work so well. They are too soft and just caused a mess every time I tried to get a cube out of the bag. 

My mind wouldn't let go of the idea though. The next time I had a bottle of creamer, I froze it in a container.

I used a cookie scoop and just scooped out what I needed. It worked great!  Now, if you like really hot coffee like I do, just scoop out what you want before you get everything going in the coffeemaker.   It loses some of the chill that way and won't chill your brew.  Or zap it in the microwave for a few seconds.  This method works wonders for me and I hope it does for you too.  I love that I'm saving money and that I always have creamer when I need it. Win, win!
