If you like a little cream in your coffee, it's easy enough to make your own. Skip the store-bought stuff and make this instead.

All you need is condensed milk and regular milk -- almond, soy, full cream, any of it will do. Over at CNET, Taylor Martin explains how it's done.
A standard can of condensed milk is 4 ounces [396g], so you'll need approximately 1.75 cups of your choice of milk to create the mixture.
Empty the condensed milk from the can into a jar. Add the milk to the jar, as well as any flavoring. Secure the lid on the jar and shake for 10 to 20 seconds, or until the cream is thoroughly mixed and the texture is consistent.
If you've ever had Vietnamese iced coffee, you may already know how tasty this is, because it's often served with condensed milk. If you want to add some flavour, that's easy enough, too -- for more detail, check out Martin's full post at the link below.
