Dairy-Free Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer

If you know me, you know I love my coffee. And I also happen to love pumpkin. I just had to create my own pumpkin spice creamer to make my own version of the famous pumpkin spice latte. Instead of heading out to my nearest Starbucks, I decided to tackle this one myself. It’s cheaper and healthier, so I figured that was a good enough reason to experiment.

Turns out it was a very good idea, as it tasted wonderful.

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer (Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup coconut milk (full fat, canned)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • about 20 stevia drops (or 2 tablespoons maple syrup)*

*adjust sweetness to your personal taste.

Directions:

  • Blend all ingredients together in a blender.
  • Add the mixture to a microwave safe mug or bowl and microwave for approximately 1 minute and 30 seconds (just to allow the pumpkin to dissolve a bit more).
  • Allow your creamer to cool completely before storing in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • Don’t forget to shake the container before you use it!
  • Then just add your desired amount of creamer to your coffee. And enjoy!

Lately this has been my go to drink of choice. It’s slightly sweet, creamy, healthy, and best of all delicious.

You can add this creamer to anything you’d like…of course there’s the go-to coffee, but you could try it in oatmeal, smoothies, and even homemade hot chocolate.

  1. YUM! i need to pick up a can of coconut milk! you always do the best things with it!

  2. I cannot wait to try this!!! It’s been pinned!!

  3. I’m sorry to hear you’re not feeling better yet. Fingers crossed a grocery store run will still happen today!
    No need to think at all: kabocha is my favourite orange food [okay, maybe it’s not technically orange but the really ripe ones are] – and you can clearly tell from my palms already ;). It’s also the one Fall food I’ve been experimenting with already.
    Such a coincidence you’re posting a Pumpkin Spice Latte just now that Starbucks announced they’ll start selling it over here for the first time. We never had it and as a non-coffee drinker I’m not sure I’ll try it in anyway but your recipe sounds great.
    I hope you’ll feel better soon!

  4. Amazing! Pumpkin coffee is my favorite but I hate when it is loaded with syrup. This recipe is perfect! Love it! Hope you’re feeling better Lisa!

  5. Your PSL recipe looks better than the Starbucks one to be honest!!! I think I need to add that creamer to David’s Pumpkin Chai Tea!!! Feel better soon Lisa.

  6. I have been all about the pumpkin lately. I love all the wonderful spices that go with pumpkin. This looks great – thanks for sharing!

  7. I guess that makes me a weirdo too- I’ve never tried their PSLs either- I’m not the biggest fan of pumpkin in sweet form so I always stay away… I know I know, what kinda HLB am I ;)! However fresh pumpkin roasted and paired with nut butter or balsamic & feta? To.die.for!

  8. I’ve pretty much already come to terms with the fact that I’ll probably turn orange this winter… between kabocha (looooooooove) and pumpkin, I’m well on my way to developing an orange hue… I just hope it won’t be too noticeable. As for PSLs, I’ve had them on a handful of occasions and I’m not really a huge fan. I don’t like the sweetened lattes in general, and find they usually have a really chemically aftertaste, so the idea of making a pumpkin creamer at home is pretty darn awesome :)

  9. Oh, I would (WILL) love this SO MUCH. I haven’t used canned coconut milk in tea/coffee yet – just my smoothies.

    I’ve tried the PSL a couple times, but Starbucks drinks give me massive headaches. And they’re WAY too effing sweet!!

  10. Oh wow! I’m not a big fan of dairy creamer so I usually just use almond or coconut milk so this sounds SO good!!! Yum!

  11. I have never tried the PSL, and I won’ t – cause I will make yours, it sounds wonderful!!
    I am definitely on a good way to turn orange. my pumpkin/kabocha obsession goes even stronger than last year. I can not get enough!

  12. This sounds amazing! I’m so excited to give it a try! Yum!!

  13. I also love my coffee and pumpkin, so I can’t wait to try this!!! :-) This looks delicious!

  14. I love the idea of making your own creamer at home! Considering my aversions to coffee, it’s no surprise that I’ve never tried a pumpkin spice latte. But I drink pumpkin spice tea in the Fall, do i get points for that? ;-)

  15. Oh what a great idea! i love this! and i’m sorry to hear you’re still a bit under the weather, I hope you feel better soon. also that baked banana bread oatmeal is looking especially delicious on this cool morning :)

  16. I haven’t started to experiment with Fall recipes yet but I am planning on doing it very very soon.
    Pumpkin Spice Coffee creamer sounds like a good way to get a jump start on the pumpkin craze for me too! ;)

  17. I’m going to have to try this pumpkin creamer! I usually add coconut milk to my coffee, I think it’s creamier than almond or cows milk. The addition if pumpkin and spices can only improve it. I hope you feel better soon!

  18. I had a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks the other day, actually! I only wish it wasn’t so sweet. I know you can get their drinks half sweet or request a certain amount of syrup in it, but there’s something about making my own drink at home to not only save on cash but on all those unnecessary calories too!

    favourite orange food would have to be sweet potatoes and carrots! love any kind of root veggies :)

    my sister & i made pumpkin scones the other day! they were super tasty and not too sweet!

    • Oh yes, I totally find a lot of their drinks just way too sweet – which is why I love recreating them at home!
      Pumpkin scones sound amazing!

  19. I love Fall recipes and this one seems like a goodie! I can’t believe you’ve never had a pumpkin spice latte. I would definitely recommend it! If you don’t like your coffee too sweet, opt for one pump of the syrup! I think it gives it just enough! It’s totally worth a try :D My favorite orange food has to be pumpkin with sweet potato a close second!

  20. Your coffee recipe looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it at home. My favorite orange food is sweet potato, but love pumpkin and butternut squash, too! I have definitely been incorporating pumpkin into my breakfasts for the past week in honor of the cooler temps.

  21. YES, and it is so over the top sweet, I never had another one. I love carrots. And candy corn!

  22. LOVE this idea!! I’m going to have to try this asap :)

  23. Oh this looks heavenly. Coffee and pumpkin have to be my two favorite things. Oh, and I guess mint chocolate is somewhere up there too. Great creamer recipe, I need to try! :)

  24. Sounds absolutely delish! I love that you made enough to really use for awhile, not just for a couple cups of coffee. Tis the season for pumpkin lattes!

  25. I have been mostly dairy free for so long I’ve forgotten what real creamer tastes like and have been experimenting with alternatives for years. I have never really made my own though, so this is a good incentive! Pumpkin spice is one of the flavors of creamers I’ve always missed around the holidays.

    • Same here! I don’t even think I’ve ever tried real creamer in my life to be honest haha. I always hated any sort of milk product as a kid and just refused to eat them.

  26. That’s so brilliant! I rarely ever put creamer in my coffee…I’ve been limiting myself to one cup per day (with my breakfast) and I really like it black first thing in the morning. But I may have to make an exception for this!

  27. Favorite orange food would be pumpkin probably because my stomach can handle that sometimes :D For the most delicious though I would go with sweet potatoes or roasted butternut squash (with the skin!!).

    Sorry to hear that you are still not feeling well. You’re probably getting that a lot but there’s not much else to say… I would if I could whip you up a nice pot of chicken soup :)

    This creamer is PERFECT. Really, just what I need to show my mother that she can stop getting those cups of iced coffee at Starbucks and McDonalds that mess up her stomach so much. Haha.

  28. Ahhh I am so excited about this recipe! I wish I had some coconut milk so I could make it right now in time for my morning coffee… but I guess it’ll have to wait. :P

    As much as I love pumpkin, I’m actually not a fan of Starbucks PSLs – they taste like chemicals to me!

    • I was pretty stoked about this recipe too! I’m kind of obsessed!
      Yah, I agree that a lot of their syrups just taste like straight up chemicals. Not really a fan of that!

  29. i am loving this recipe so much, you have no idea! i’ve tried using almond milk on its own and i just don’t like the way it sits. but this..omg! with the coconut milk..brilliant!! i used to drink psl’s every now and then but that was a long time ago. my tummy is way too sensitive for them now. thanks so much for this recipe !! :))

  30. I have a jar of homemade pumpkin spice creamer in my fridge right now! I just used light coconut milk and didn’t add any sweetener. Although I should add some stevia to make it more like the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte I love!

  31. Rumor har it there will finally be Pumpkin Spice Latte in Germany as well. Can’t wait to try it. Sounds so good! My favorite orange food is pumpkin and sweetpotato.So good. At the moment fall unlashes his full impact on my cooking. I had a fab stuffed pumpkin yesterday featured in my WIAW post. Check it out if you’re interested :-)

  32. This sounds delicious. I bet I could drink the creamer on it’s own. ;)

  33. I still haven’t had my pumpkin spice latte from starbucks yet….hopefully this weekend will finally be the day.

  34. I Googled Pumpkin spice creamer and found exactly what I needed (plus a new blog to read)! Thanks!

  35. Thank you so much for pumpkin spice creamer it’s so delicious. I’ve had a craving for it but am lactose intolerant so I can’t … but now I can thanks to you!

  36. awesome recipe Lisa! I made this yesterday and was so impressed with the results. thank you. coffee shops totally need something like this on their menu.
