Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk (regular almond, coconut or soy milk will work–no added sugar of course)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, optional almond extract
  • 2/3 cup raisins OR 10 dates cut in half

Directions

Combine milk with either raisins or dates, cover and refrigerate 24 hours. Remove raisins or dates from milk and discard, cover and keep refrigerated until ready to use. The result is some very sweet milk, perfect for that morning cup of Joe.

If you use milk other than skim, you can also make a nice form or froth by whipping.

    Wendy, We didn't calculate the data as the milk used will depend on the calorie count.

    Does the natural sugar from the raisin increase the calorie count of the milk?

      Natasha, Yes it would. This is just a healthier version of those commercially made creamers w/o the refined sugar. :)

    *I am going to make this with dates and skim milk. I know that milk and dates tastes delicious together, so I'm pretty excited about that!

    *I wanted to try to do it with almond milk. I never had almond milk before and thought it would be interesting to try something new. When I went to the supermarket to buy almond milk, I saw a brand called Silk pure almond milk- original. Suprisingly, when I read the ingredients, It has cane sugar in it and sea salt. Do you know a healthier brand with no sugar added?

    I would be tempted to rinse off the raisins, soak them in the same amount of rum, and make a dynamite rum-raisin ice cream later on. I mean, why discard the raisins? Surely not ALL the flavor is gone!

    Does this change the expiration date of the milk?

    Reply
    • Skinny Ms.  August 16, 2013

      Amy, The creamer will stay fresh for a few days. Without preservatives, it doesn’t keep long term.

    At what point do you add the vanilla extract? When adding the fruit or just before using?

    Reply
    • Skinny Ms.  August 16, 2013

      Just before using is best.

        Do you add the 1/2t extract to the entire cup of 'creamer' you just made or to each cup of coffee you're just about to drink and put the creamer into? Thank you.
