Irish Cream Coffee Creamer from @thegabels #recipe

With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I have Irish cream on the brain.   My homemade Irish cream is a favorite adult beverage, but I wanted something the kids could enjoy, too.

One of my favorite flavors is Irish cream and every March, I find myself trying to find fun ways to incorporate in to pretty much everything.  I’m not really in to dying food green, but Irish cream I can get behind!

Homemade Irish Cream Recipe from Growing Up Gabel @thegabels #recipe

A few years ago I made my first batch of homemade Irish cream, which is basically a homemade version of Bailey’s.  It’s so good, but it does contain alcohol so it isn’t for the whole family. I wanted to make the recipe in to an Irish Cream coffee creamer so the kids could enjoy a little Irish cream for St. Patrick’s Day, too.    I’m a major coffee drinker of all kinds like cardamom coffee and iced coffee. I also like my tea with a little cream and I’m thinking this Irish Cream coffee creamer would be an interesting addition to tea.

This coffee creamer comes together really quickly and just store it in the fridge.  Make sure to shake it up before using it because the chocolate sauce tends to settle to the bottom.

Don’t drink coffee? Use the creamer to make Irish Cream French Toast instead!
