Homemade Pumpkin Spice CreamerThis is the real thing, no artificial ingredients.  Pumpkin, spice and cream, all blended together and “yummified”.

As a young adult I actually LOVED non dairy creamer.  I have no idea why, but I thought it was so good, no half aand half for me.  As I have gotten older and eat mostly non processed foods I have really developed a distaste for it.  So for me it is all about 1/2 and 1/2 or milk in my coffee and tea.

I’m sure you don’t know this (just kidding) but anything Pumpkin Spice is all the rage right now.  So, I decided to see if I could put together a natural Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer recipe.  And I really think it works.  It tasted great and it was all real.

What could be better?

For this recipe you are also going to need a coffee filter to make a little sachet for the spices.  My guess (but I have not tried it) is that if you had a spicy herbal tea you probably could use a bag of that instead.

You will also need to strain it prior to using.  I use a paint strainer bag.  But you can also use nut bag, clean nylons or a t-shirt to remove the pumpkin pulp.

    I made this using 2 spice tea bags instead of spices as you suggested and can I say delish!! So much better knowing where everything comes from:)

    I made this the other day. Instead of straining the pumpkin, I just added the steeped half & half and the pumpkin to my Magic Bullet and blended it all together. The aroma and the taste was AMAZING…until I added it to my coffee. I couldn’t taste any hint of the creamer at all and I ended up adding quite a bit to even get a small taste of it and nothing. :(
