Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer Recipe

Shares

I love the flavors and scents that fall brings, especially pumpkin.  Lately on Facebook everyone has been talking about pumpkin lattes and pumpkin coffee, pumpkin creamer and all things coffee and pumpkin together.

YUM!

But I have two problems with this.

First, I hardly ever go out so I rarely have the chance to order a pumpkin coffee.

Second, I am a purist with respect to my diet and try to make as much as I can from scratch. I think people don’t realize how easy it really is to make some of their favorite things instead of buying it pre-made.

So I figured I would try to make my own pumpkin creamer, and it was pretty easy.  My version is also healthy too!

I used these ingredients:

Heated the half & half, pumpkin and Truvia on the stove until bubbling.

Then I added in everything else, whisked until mixed and chilled.

Quick easy and healthy pumpkin creamer recipe
Author:
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 1 cup fat free half & half (skim milk works better because the pumpkin will thicken it up significantly)
  • ½ cup pumpkin
  • Truvia or sugar to taste (1-2 tbsp)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Heat half & half, pumpkin and sugar (or Truvia) over medium heat until bubbling and sugar is dissolved.
  2. Remove from heat.
  3. Wisk vanilla and spices into warm mixtures until well blended.
  4. Cool.
  5. Serve.
Notes
You can use full fat creamer or even milk with this recipe. It will affect the consistency. With the half & half, the creamer was thicker than normal. I think skim milk is probably the ideal for the right consistency with traditional creamer. If you want your creamer sweeter, you can add more sugar to the recipe, or just add it in later so the whole family can enjoy and sweeten it to their preferences. Calorie info is based upon fat free half and half and Truvia.

You can choose to top it off with some whipped cream and cinnamon or nutmeg sprinkled on top!  Real whipped cream has around 25 calories so it’s actually a guilt-free treat.
