Why you’ll love this recipe
Ease – It comes together in about 5 minutes with minimal effort.
Flavor – Sweet, creamy, and filled with the flavors of pumpkin spice, pumpkin, and vanilla.
Refined sugar free – This creamer is sweetened with pure maple syrup, making it refined sugar free.
All-natural ingredients – No artificial flavors or colors. This creamer is filled with real all-natural ingredients.
One of the perks of making creamer at home is that you can make it just the way you want it. Here are some ingredient swaps that you can easily make:
Half and half: Swap 1:1 for milk, cream, or plant-based milk.
Maple syrup: Swap 1:1 for brown sugar or granulated sugar. You can also use honey but the flavor will be quite strong. If you choose to use a sugar substitute (such as Stevia) you will need much less. I recommend adding a little (maybe 1 teaspoon), tasting it, and going from there.
Pumpkin pie spice: Swap 1:1 for ground cinnamon, or use ¾ teaspoon cinnamon + ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg + ⅛ teaspoon ground ginger.
Store this creamer in the refrigerator for up to one week. I like to store it in a mason jar so that I can shake it up before using it. The pumpkin and spices will settle, so just give it a quick shake or stir before adding it to your coffee.
