Have you caught the pumpkin spice bug too? As soon as September hits and all the way through the holidays, I am all about pumpkin flavored everything: cakes, cookies, breads, and, of course, the infamous pumpkin spice latte! Unfortunately, I can’t afford a delectable $5 Starbucks creation everyday. This spiced pumpkin coffee creamer is the solution to all my woes.
The ingredients in this homemade creamer are simple and make me feel better about what I’m putting in my body than that icky orange coffee from Starbucks. It’s a wonderfully delicious way to welcome autumn!
You can adjust the ingredients to suit your taste, but here’s what you’ll need to get started:
2 cups half and half
3 tbs. pumpkin puree
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
4 tbs. maple syrup
3 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
- Whisk the half and half, pumpkin, syrup, and pumpkin pie spice together over medium heat.
- Once combined and warmed through, remove from heat and add vanilla. Pour into covered bowl and let set for 3 to 6 hours in fridge.
- Using a strainer or sieve, transfer the cream into a jar, pitcher, or bottle of your choice. (Don’t skip this! It’s important!)
And there you have it! It’s quick and easy and will last quite a while in the fridge.
