{ pumpkin spice creamer }

It just happens to be the start of our very favorite time of year, which means it is time for one of our {well, the lady of the blog} very favorite guilty pleasures...pumpkin spice! You don't have to be a coffee drinker to enjoy this stuff. We have tried using in hot chocolate, and making regular pumpkin steamers {just milk and creamer}, so try it! Fall heaven in a cup...Enjoy!

  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 can of organic canned coconut milk, shaken!
  • 4 tablespoons of organic pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoons of pumpkin spice
  • 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • {We also added 1 extra teaspoon of cinnamon...}
1. Whisk almond milk, coconut milk, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and pumpkin spice together over medium heat. When it gets steamy {almost to a boil---and you can actually see the steam coming up from it} remove from heat and add in the vanilla.

2. Using a fine mesh strainer--transfer the cream into a container... do not skip this step, trust me. Let it cool down and chill it the refrigerator before using. We have found that the flavor is stronger the next day. Add to coffee as a creamer or create your own pumpkin spiced latte--like we did and indulge! {recipe below}

  • 1 cup pumpkin spice creamer
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of espresso--or 1/2 to 1 cup strong brewed coffee {<--all depends on how strong of a coffee flavor you like}
  • dollop of coconut whipped cream, optional {recipe here}
  • pumpkin pie spice for topping
1. In a small pan heat the creamer until it begins to boil. Remove from heat. Pour into two mugs, add the hot espresso or coffee, and top with coconut whipped cream and a dash of pumpkin pie spice on top. Then stir all together. MMM...
