Homemade Pumpkin Coffee Creamer

Made with real pumpkin puree, not pumpkin flavoring. You can now have your pumpkin lattes at home with this easy to add creamer with ingredients you can trust. 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 and 1/2 cups (360ml) heavy cream, half-and-half, or whole milk or your favorite dairy free milk alternative
  • 2 Tablespoons (30g) organic pumpkin puree
  • 2 Tablespoons (30ml) pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice2
  • 1 - 2 cinnamon sticks

DIRECTIONS

  1. In small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together heavy cream, pumpkin, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice. Add cinnamon sticks and increase heat to medium-high. Bring to boil, whisking occasionally, for 1 minute, then remove from heat and let creamer cool in pan 5 minutes before using in your coffee. Add sugar to your coffee if you take it that way. You can also add whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon too.
  2. Store leftovers in refrigerator for up to 1 week. Shake well before using.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

  1. For a dairy-free version, try coconut, cashew, or almond milk.
  2. I like a lot of spice, so I add close to 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Taste and add however much you like. You can make your own 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice by blending a pinch each of ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground cloves, and ground allspice.
