Hi friends! Well today we have a St. Patrick’s Day-related recipe for you – how to make your very own Homemade Irish Cream! It’s actually quite easy – and so tasty! And while you can buy it by the bottle, it’s sometimes fun to make your own – and save a few bucks doing it, right? So let’s get down to it…
Homemade Irish Cream
- 1 cup light cream
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 oz.
- 1 2/3 cups Irish whiskey
- 1 teaspoon instant coffee
- 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend at high speed for about 20 seconds.
Transfer to a clean bottle with a tightly fitting cap.
Store, refrigerated, and shake well before using.
Doesn’t that Homemade Irish Cream sound easy? It is! And really tasty too. You can serve it over ice or in your favorite mixed drinks!
What do you think? Will you give Homemade Irish Cream a try this year? There are so many drinks you could try it in, like these amazing-sounding Baileys Recipes from She Knows! Let me know if you DO give it a try, I’d love to hear what you think!

YUM! I had no idea you could make Bailey’s at home so I’ll have to give this a try! I love it in my coffee!
Pinned and shared on my FB page! This looks amazing! I love Kahlua and Irish Cream! 🙂

Thank you for sharing, Kelsey!!
That looks divine……we just submitted a grant proposal – the deadline was today at 4, I think we made it with 20 minutes to spare….I may be making this tonight.
This sounds DELICIOUS, yum!
Sounds and looks yummy!!
Definitely going to have to give this a try. c:
Hey sounds great, but does it have a shelf life?
Kimberly Sneed says
Great question Jaz! Light cream typically lasts for 7-10 days refrigerated, so I would stick to that guideline!
I’ve made this many, many, many times (added 50 lbs to my body from partaking too much). It’s THAT good! Be aware of the calories and that cream only lasts so long in the fridge (thus the reason I packed on the pounds, I couldn’t let my heavenly Bailey’s go bad!). You will definitely enjoy!
