Why Make Homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer?
I love making my own coffee creamer because I can hand-select the ingredients I want. I like to use natural ingredients and avoid artificial flavors. I also love to play around with the flavors of pumpkin available to us this time of year! One ingredient with so many uses? Count me in!
And, adding a little bit to my morning coffee is a great way to consume a little more of this great food. Pumpkin is an incredible source of vitamins and fiber.
Can I make this a dairy-free pumpkin spice creamer?
You can make this with any non-dairy milk you would like! However, please note that this recipe was created using heavy whipping cream. So if you create this with something like coconut milk, whole milk, almond milk. nonfat milk, or any other non-dairy milk, the recipe may not render the same results as if you were to use heavy whipping cream like encouraged.
How is this pumpkin spice coffee creamer different from store-bought pumpkin spice creamer?
Store-bought pumpkin spice creamer may have a thicker consistency and a longer shelf life. This homemade creamer is thin and has simple ingredients. You don’t even need something like a small saucepan to create it! Simply add your ingredients to a glass mason jar, shake, and store in your refrigerator for up to a week.

Please note that this recipe was created with specific ingredients, and should you deviate from this recipe, your results may be different from the results in this blog post.
There are several ways you can alter this recipe to fit your dietary needs. I used store-bought pumpkin pie spice because that’s what I had on hand. But you could use homemade pumpkin pie spice. I used brown sugar and pure maple syrup to sweeten my creamer. But you could easily try something like coconut sugar. I used heavy whipping cream, but I would also be excited to try coconut cream for an added layer of sweetness.
For more flavor, consider topping your morning cup of joe with whipped cream and ground cinnamon! Yum!
I will caution you against using pumpkin pie filling in this recipe. If you take a look at the ingredients in pumpkin pie filling, you will find most of them come pre-seasoned and pre-sweetened. In pumpkin puree, you know you’re getting real pumpkin. And that’s the only ingredient!
If you have the time to tend to a stovetop, you can combine all of your ingredients together and heat them until your heavy whipping cream is just simmering. This will give your sugars a chance to dissolve, making an even smoother coffee creamer.
Please note that anything left to simmer on the stovetop must be stirred constantly! You don’t want to scorch your heavy whipping cream!
Do you love fall?
When the heat of summer subsides and the leaves start to change, that’s when my heart does a little pitter-patter. Fall is on its way! This homemade pumpkin spice coffee creamer recipe is a great way to embrace all things pumpkin. The pumpkin pie spice blend has those warm spices, like clove, ginger, and cinnamon. I love that you can use natural flavors and truly enjoy how God made fall!
I also love that in the fall, we’re still able to enjoy the community that’s around us. Remember to look for ways to grow those connections! I love going on hayrides, attending late-season farmer’s markets, and enjoying smores and hotdogs over a backyard bonfire.
