Homemade Coffee Cream Liqueur (Vegan Baileys) silky smooth, rich and creamy. Enjoy over ice, blended in hot chocolate or shared festive gift.


vegan baileys over ice

Our homemade Coffee Cream Liqueur is silky smooth and quick, easy and plant-based. We’ve wanted to recreate vegan Baileys for ages! We’ve tried the branded vegan version and we found it overly sickly sweet (sorry Baileys).

Easy to make

You will need 6 ingredients – it’s that simple to create this velvety smooth delight. The joy of making your own version is that you can tweak the strength of the coffee or add a little more of a glug less whisky to suit your taste.

Drink (responsibly) on its own, over ice or add a splash to your hot chocolate. Also makes a perfect festive gift for anyone who enjoys a festive tipple.

Can I use decaffeinated Coffee?

I have a confession (Hi, Claire here) I don’t like coffee and I react badly to caffeine; it really doesn’t do me any good.  But I used to love a Baileys and this homemade version is delightful, when I make my version, I use decaf coffee. The joy of making it yourself is you can decide the type of coffee you’d like to use and how strong it is within the blend. Sarah does love a good coffee and so do our friends and husbands and we all agreed this Coffee Cream Liqueur is spot on.

How to make sure the Coffee Cream Liqueur is silky smooth

Make sure you stir the condensed milk on its own until it is smooth, before whisking it into the other ingredients. If you have a blender, put all the ingredients in and blend until smooth. If you don’t have a blender a large bowl and a good whisk will work a treat.

Coconut Condensed & Evaporated Coconut Milk

Yes! Absolutely and no, you do not taste the coconut when the ingredients are blended together unless you add extra evaporated coconut milk, then there might be a slight after taste. Do not try making this with coconut milk from a carton, it won’t be creamy or sweet enough.

We have used Nature’s Charm Evaporated Coconut Milk (360ml) and Biona organic Condensed Coconut Milk (210g) – other brands are available.


Choice of Whisky

This is entirely up to you but we chose to use a traditional Irish whisky.

How to Store the Coffee Cream Liqueur

Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. It is common for the liquid to separate slightly – be sure to shake the bottle before drinking, this will restore the Coffee Cream Liqueurs silky smooth texture.
