Homemade pumpkin spice coffee creamer is the perfect addition to your fall morning.
Nothing says fall like sipping a cup of coffee outside in the crisp, cool air. There is just something about it that is so peaceful. Unfortunately, I don’t get to experience that very often. It stays fairly warm around Miami most of the year, but the heat does not keep us from enjoying the Fall season, especially when it comes to all things Pumpkin Spice! I’ve already made two pumpkin spice recipes this fall – Pumpkin Spice Mousse and Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Maple Bourbon Cream Cheese Icing!#PumpkinSpice Coffee Creamer is the perfect addition to your fall morning!

Pumpkin Spice is a combination of flavors that can give the feeling of fall any time of year. The combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice is quintessential of fall.
At this point of the year, I’m sure you have already seen the pumpkin spice coffee creamers coming out in waves. While they may taste good, they tend to have a lot of ingredients I can’t pronounce. While I am not the queen of eating healthy, I try to do my best where I can. This creamer is so easy to make that it just makes sense to skip the fake stuff and go for the real thing. Plus, I have a bonus gluten free pumpkin spice flan that uses this very creamer coming out this week. You do not want to miss it!
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer
This creamer is so easy you are going to wonder why you never made it yourself before. It’s just a few simple ingredients and viola! Pumpkin Spice Creamer that you want to eat with a spoon.
Cinnamon Sticks- I like the flavor that simmering whole cinnamon sticks infuses. It takes a bit more time, but I just set it on to simmer and made dinner while it was going.
Pumpkin Spice- I used a premade pumpkin spice mixture. I did notice that the spice grounds didn’t dissolve very well, but settled towards the bottom. This was fine for me, but the second time I made it I put them in a piece of cheesecloth, tied it up, and threw it in to the simmering milk and cream. This added all the flavor, without the spice grounds.
That is really it! Nothing more to it, be sure to come back tomorrow for my Pumpkin Spice Flan!
