Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer

I am so excited to share this recipe for homemade pumpkin spice creamer with you. If you follow me on Facebook, I’m sorry I teased you with it last week! Since I normally drink my coffee in the morning while it’s still dark out, I had to set up a special photo shoot just so I could get some natural light. Luckily I am obsessed with this stuff, so drinking a second cup of coffee in the evening wasn’t too much of a hardship. :)

I hope you’re prepared because after seeing just how easy homemade creamers are, you can expect many more to come. I’m thinking maybe a peppermint flavored one for Christmas, and of course a classic French vanilla. But at the moment I am all about this pumpkin spice version. It tastes so good! It is full of Fall flavor and makes me think about pumpkin pie, and cinnamon, and spice cake all while I’m drinking my coffee. Now that I think of it, this could get dangerous. :) But seriously, give this a try. It takes about 5 minutes to make, tastes amazing, and gives a nice hint of pumpkin spice to your morning coffee.

*Note: Mike is once again claiming to not like pumpkin. Plus he also says he is “too lazy” to put creamer in his coffee.  That doesn’t even make sense, but that’s all right – more creamer for me! :)

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer

Ingredients:

1 cup milk (I used skim to keep it at least a little healthy)
1 cup of heavy whipping cream
4 Tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
4 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the milk, cream, pumpkin, maple syrup, and pumpkin spice. Heat over medium heat until it just begins to bubble around the edges. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Strain through a fine mesh strainer and refrigerate before using.

    Oh man… I almost wish I hadn’t seen this. Almost. I could probably use a gallon of this in my coffee!

    I bit the bullet and got a pumpkin spice latte last week from Starbucks. It was $5.17. I cried a little. Can’t wait to try this creamer as a substitute!

    instead of milk and cream, what about plain nondairy creamer? i think i may try that. it would last longer too, not spoil as fast. sounds delish!

    OMG – I would buy as much of the Coffeemate version of this as I could the short time it was available (mid Oct – mid Dec). Now I can make my own anytime AND it does not have artifical “stuff” in it :) I CANNOT wait to make this. Thank you SO much for sharing this recipe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m not much of a coffee drinker but can totally see myself enjoying a cup or two if it had this creamer in it. Sounds super delish.

    I am trying to give up dairy (lactose intolerant); so I am going to make this with coconut milk for the milk part and CANNED full fat coconut milk for the heavy cream (it is very thick and creamy). I am going to make this over the weekend, CAN’T WAIT TO TRY! WOn’t be the same, non-dairy, but it will still be good I bet, coconut milk isn’t really coconutty, but you can also you almond or hazelnut milk instead. Thank you for posting! The Starbucks PSL is my downfall!!!

    I have left over pumpkin purée in the freeze from making pumpkin granola. So excited to make this tomorrow! Could not find pumpkin creamer last year at the grocery. It’s makes me so happy! Thanks for developing such a treat and sharing!

    I’m so excited to make this! My hubby and I are stationed overseas so our creamer choices are a total of 4! Vanilla, hazelnut, original and the big kahuna for us white chocolate macadamia nut. I am the kinda gal who like to change up her coffee often so these choices get boring quick! As soon as the kids get up from naps we are off to the store for ingredients!

    Yum! To anyone worried about how long this keeps, just make pumpkin syrup by cooking down water, pumpkin puree, spices and maple syrup. I do that so it lasts much longer in my fridge. :)

    Not sure about the maple syrup… but this would be really good made with raw pumpkin seed milk instead of dairy milk.

Thanks for giving me hope!!! I dont think I could have made it 3 years without Pumpkin Spice in my life!!!

    I made this last night and only used skim milk (no cream). I also added about a quarter cup of splenda to make it a little sweeter. I served it in mugs with a dollop of whipped cream on top. It was wonderful. When I make it again I will probably half the pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon and add a TBS more of pumpkin. Thanks for sharing!

    • megan replied: — November 17th, 2012 @ 7:36 pm

      Yum, this version sounds great!

    Sarah — November 18, 2012 @ 8:52 am

    Have you ever thought of making a homemade peppermint creamer? That would be great in coffee and hot chocolate! Maybe you already do? I think I would know, I have a mental file drawer for your blog! As always, thank you! Have a blessed Sunday!

    • megan replied: — November 20th, 2012 @ 8:38 pm

      I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s on my list to try before Christmas! Thanks so much for your kind comment :)

    Kristina — November 29, 2012 @ 3:04 pm

    I am making my grocery list now and planning on stocking up on pumpkin specifically for this! YUM! Any thoughts on if it would freeze well?

    • megan replied: — November 30th, 2012 @ 8:28 am

      I don’t think it would freeze well, since you’re not supposed to freeze cream. If you’re worried about it going bad before you use it all, I would just cut the recipe in half. That’s what we did and it worked great. I hope you like it! :)

    Kristina — December 3, 2012 @ 10:00 am

    Thanks or your quick response! Definitely not worried about it going to waste, I drink a LOT of coffee. ;) just thought I’d stock up and then I wouldn’t have to make it every week. I might try with coconut milk next time (refrigerate and then open the bottom of the can first to drain out the water, you’re left with the thick creamy part) I used that to make whipped cream for thanksgiving and it was awesome!

    • megan replied: — December 3rd, 2012 @ 11:24 am

      Great idea on the coconut milk! I bet that would taste great in coffee!

    Hi! Aussie girl here, what is pumpkin spice? Is it like mixed spice??

    • megan replied: — July 20th, 2013 @ 10:14 am

      yes, it is some combination of “fall” spices – cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, etc. If you search the internet, I’m guessing you might be able to find a homemade version that tells you what spices to use.

    When you make this how long does it keep?

    • megan replied: — October 19th, 2013 @ 7:02 am

      I keep it for a week or two. I figure it’s good for as long as the cream would have lasted on its own.
