Homemade Irish cream

By Julie Van Rosendaal on February 24, 2013
If you're looking for a special St. Patrick's Day sipper, here it is - homemade Irish Cream takes about 5 minutes in the blender - all you need is whisky, sweetened condensed milk, espresso powder, cocoa and cream. Blend and chill. (And while the blender is all Irish cream-y, you could add a scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream too…)

Note: To be truly an Irish cream, this would be made with whiskey – the preferred Irish spelling – but here in Canada it’s spelled whisky.


1 can sweetened condensed milk
the empty milk can full of whisky
half a can full of whipping or 18% cream
1 Tbsp. espresso powder
1 Tbsp. cocoa
2 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond extract


1. Blend everything in a blender, then transfer into a glass jar, pitcher or bottle. Refrigerate for 2 hours; shake before serving.
