I know I’m not alone in my obsession with pumpkin-everything this time of year. And what better way to start a crisp fall morning than with a mug of hot coffee & pumpkin spice creamer? But have you ever turned the bottle around and looked at the ingredient list?
Yuck! I feel like it’s disease in a bottle. Full of artificial ingredients and partially hydrogenated oils – this is not a healthy start to your day. Thanks to my friend, Amie, I have a delicious recipe for a healthy Pumpkin Spice Creamer to share with you! Nothing artificial here – just real, wholesome goodness.
Pumpkin Spice Creamer
- 2 c. vanilla almond milk*
- 1/4 c. pure pumpkin puree
- 3 tbsp. pure maple syrup
- 1 tbsp. agave nectar
- 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
Combine ingredients in a mason jar (or 2, depending on the size you have). Whisk together, or be sure the lid is on tight and shake well. Keeps in the refrigerator for about a week.
Note: Separation is natural. Shake well before each use.
* I use unsweetened almond milk because I like to be in control of my sweeteners – I usually add a bit of Stevia to my coffee – but feel free to use sweetened almond milk, if you prefer. I’ve also used Original instead of Vanilla because it’s what I had on hand, in which case I just add a splash of vanilla extract.
Which would you rather have?
