Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer

Weather: 46 and drizzly
What I’m listening to: All I Want, Kodaline

You may have heard that there’s a Pumpkin Spice Latte shortage at Starbucks this year. Gasp! So, the first thing I want to say to say to you is that I think it’s time to make some homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup, one of the very first things I ever posted to the blog a year ago after weathering my very own personal version of a Starbucks shortage.

The next thing I want to say to you is that I’m a coffee creamer junkie. It’s the truth. We go through large quantities of the bottled sweet stuff in our house, mostly because I can’t drink my coffee without it. And it’s not just a little splash. It’s of the “would you like a little coffee with your creamer?” variety. People make fun of me for it – those coffee purists out there – you know who they are.

So, I woke up one morning recently to a freshly brewed pot of coffee and not a drop of creamer. Blast! Pastor Alaska was out of town and in what must have been a moment of exhaustion, I had completely overlooked the fact that we were out of the creamy liquid that makes every cup of coffee drinkable for me. Suddenly, I had an idea. A wonderful, terrific, morning-rectifying, sanity-saving idea. I had a batch of homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup sitting in a jar in the refrigerator. And I had a carton of half-and-half. Eureka! I’ve found it. Syrup, cream, vanilla + coffee and I was one happy girl again. And let me tell you, I made two big batches of this homemade creamer back to back, and when it was all gone and I went back to the bottled sweet stuff, I had a hard time transitioning back. Because this homemade stuff is that good. In fact, I made sure I had all the ingredients on hand this week to make up another batch.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Stir the ingredients together until well combined. Use as you would regular coffee creamer. Store in a jar or sealed container in the refrigerator. Shake before each use (as the pumpkin will settle to the bottom).

Notes

You can adjust this entirely to suit your preference. Like your coffee more sweet, but less creamy? Add more syrup and less cream. Or vice-versa. Tweak it until you find your ideal combination.

Just made this up and it is amazing!!! We did 1.5 cups of syrup because we like our creamer a little sweeter.  Thanks for a great recipe!!

I had a dream that Momma was here, we were out of creamer, so we started making this. I woke up before the coffee was ready though,LOL

I was in the mood for Pumpkin Scones so I googled it and found a nice sounding recipe. But, I used your pumpkin spice latte creamer and your pumpkin spice syrup in place of the spices listed. Very yummy!  Mixed together 2 C flour, 7 T sugar, 1 T baking powder. Cut 6 T butter in with dry ingred. Mix in a sep bowl - 2 T of the pumpkin latte syrup, 1 egg, 1/2 canned pumpkin, and 3 T of the pumpkin spice latte creamer. Fold the wet stuff in with the dry. Make a ball, pat out into a 9ish X 3ish rectangle. Divide that in to 3 and then cut those into 3 triangles. Bake at 425 for 14-16 mins (til light brown). I place my scones on parchment paper to bake.  For the drizzle, if so inclined, 1 cup powdered sugar and 2 T of the pumpkin spice latte creamer.

Such a great idea making this at home because it's got to save you a ton of money! I order mine with soy which costs extra so I always cringe when I fork over close to $4 for a dang coffee! BUT I love them. :)

It does look tempting... and handy :-) Believe it or not, some of us live very happily in a Starbucks-free environment. Yes, it is possible.

Had to make a second batch of your PSL syrup yesterday because the natives were getting restless. ;) The creamer sounds yummy! I'm a creamer gal too.

I can't wait to try this. My husband and I cannot have our coffee without creamer. I'd rather make this at home than have to go to Starbucks for it.

 @ErinHollyMcCoy That sounds happy! :) Too bad you didn't get to try the coffee in your dream. It would have been yummy. LOL.

 @nutritiouseats You're absolutely right about the money! :) And yes, I love them, too, $4 and all (actually here in Alaska they're often more than that!). Yikes.
