But here us out: this recipe is easy, affordable, and so much more delicious than the store-bought kind.
Ready to get started? Here’s what you need to do for the best pumpkin spice coffee creamer at home!
Step 1: Buy the Ingredients.
There are only 5 ingredients in the recipe, and several are probably things you already have on hand! You’ll need 1.5 cups of heavy cream, 2 T. pumpkin puree, 2 T. pure maple syrup, 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, and 2 cinnamon sticks. If you want to have a lower fat option, feel free to substitute out the heavy cream for half and half or lowfat milk, just know the flavor won’t be as rich. You can also go dairy free with almond milk or coconut milk!
Step 2: Cook the Ingredients.
Grab a small saucepan and combine the cream or milk you are using, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice over medium heat. Once warmed, add the cinnamon sticks and increase the heat to high until the mixture is boiling. Boil for 1 minute, whisking continuously as not to burn it, then remove from heat. Once the creamer has cooled, you’re ready to use it!
Step 3: Spice it Up!
To use the creamer, add it as you would normal creamer. You’ll want to add sugar too if that’s your jam. Depending on our mood, sometimes we like to add a little whipped cream or cinnamon too!
Step 4: Store for Later!
You don’t have to use all of this pumpkin spice coffee creamer in one day! You can simply put it in the refrigerator and store it for up to a week – if it lasts that long!
