Homemade Red Velvet Coffee Creamer
I’m obsessed with red velvet. Absolutely. I’m very thankful that there are actually 2! holidays that you can sneak red velvet in for, and that one of them (ahem!… Valentine’s Day is just ONE MONTH away!) is right around the corner. It gives me an excuse to make (more of ) this Homemade Red Velvet Coffee Creamer.
To me, this Red Velvet Creamer makes your coffee taste a little like mocha. Except… Redder. And Velvetier (pronounced Velvety-er. Yes, that’s a word now.) Super delicious, like a cake in a cup!
