A recipe for homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer made with all-natural ingredients and no refined sugar. Make your own pumpkin spice lattes or fall flavored coffee or tea right at home. Ready in 5 minutes!
After recently returning from a fabulous (kid free!) vacation to Napa Valley, I feel like I should be detoxing and juice cleansing and eating super healthy. I spent several days drinking wine and eating my weight in carbs (and cheese. and chocolate.) It was glorious, but now I’m feeling a bit sluggish. It doesn’t help that laundry, chores, and the demands of two little ones are blaring reminders that my days of wining and dining are O.V.E.R. Ha!
Although I’m trying to eat a little healthier this week, I can’t be left out of the pumpkin spice craze. I whipped up this simple All-Natural Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer so I could get my pumpkin fix guilt free.
This creamer is made with real pumpkin puree, pure maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, and the milk of your choice (make it as light or indulgent as you’d like). No hydrogenated oil, no refined sugar, no corn syrup, and no artificial flavors or colors! Just good stuff.
Of course you can pour it right into black coffee, but if you want to feel a little fancy you can add frothed milk and/or whipped cream. This creamer is also fabulous in hot tea. My favorite teas to pair it with are Chai, Earl Grey and English Breakfast.
Want to make your own pumpkin spice latte? Strong coffee (or espresso), steamed milk and a generous splash of this creamer and you have a drink that’s as good as the ones from fancy coffee shops!
NEVER MISS A RECIPE!
- 1 cup milk or half and half, or a combination of both (see note)
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking frequently. Once all ingredients are combined, remove from heat. Use immediately or tranfer to a container and refrigerate (see note).
After chilling, the pumpkin and spices will settle slightly at the bottom of the creamer. Just give it a shake or stir right before using.
