Ingredients and substitutions
Here are a few quick notes about the ingredients in this recipe. You can see a complete list of ingredients and instructions in the recipe card below.
No artificial flavors or unwanted vegetable oil in this pumpkin spice creamer recipe. Just wholesome ingredients for a delicious morning cup. Add a pumpkin breakfast cookie and you are in full fall mode!
Full-fat Coconut Milk or Almond milk - Reach for a can of this creamy milk as your base or you can use any non-dairy milk you'd like. No heavy cream or dairy whole milk here.
Pumpkin Puree - Make sure you use pureed pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling! You can even roast your own pumpkin.
Pumpkin Pie Spice - This is what really brings the feeling of fall to your coffee! Ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves bring together that fall-inspired flavor. Pick up a jar of pumpkin pie spice blend or combine spices and make your own.
Pure Maple Syrup - This natural sweetener reminds me of fall and I love being able to customize the sweetness in my creamer.
Before you start: Get out your non-dairy milk of choice, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
Step 1: Combine coconut milk, maple syrup, real pumpkin puree, and pumpkin spice in a medium saucepan, and cook over medium heat.
Step 2: Add vanilla extract and whisk to combine. Remove the saucepan from heat and allow it to cool before transferring it to an airtight bottle, mason jar, or container.
- Leftover homemade pumpkin spice creamer? It can do so much more than flavor your morning coffee. Try using it in place of milk in quick icings and glazes. Also, try using it in waffle batter and to make oatmeal.
- Heating in a saucepan is crucial to making a homogeneous mixture. The pumpkin and coconut milk are both thick and need to be gently heated in order to whisk them together.
- Store in a bottle that has easy pouring, and is leakproof for shaking!
Yes! Coconut milk is the perfect option for making non-dairy coffee creamer. You can also use almond milk, cashew milk, oat milk, soy milk... the options are endless! Just keep in mind that each milk has its own flavor and thickness. And because we are adding maple syrup, look for unsweetened milk options.
Look for a convenient bottle or jar that has leakproof lids since you'll want to shake things up before each pour. A spout or smaller mouth will help you pour without spilling.
Individual spices are generally gluten-free, but depending on how and where they are processed additional gluten agents may be added. This could be from added wheat starch or wheat flour. Or, from cross-contamination in the facility the spice was processed and packaged. Check labels before purchasing.
