Pumpkin Spice Dairy Free Coffee Creamer


Going dairy free has been a bit harder than I had originally anticipated. I love coffee and I struggled with finding a dairy free alternative for my coffee. I love half and half and unfortunately for me, all the pre-made, pre-packaged dairy free coffee creamers out there weren’t cutting it.

I came across a recipe for homemade coconut coffee creamer – I admit I was skeptical but after I made it and used it for the past couple of weeks I ended up loving it. So I decided to start experimenting with different flavors. In honor of my favorite season, fall, I decided to try a pumpkin spice flavored coffee creamer!

Call me basic but I love everything pumpkin spice; candles, air fresheners, candy, coffee, the list goes on and on.  Since I love pumpkin flavored things, I was really nervous to try this homemade creamer. Was it going to be fake tasting? Not the right amount of spice? Not enough pumpkin flavoring? Was I going to waste my time? Well, there was no need to worry because it is so good. Rich, decadent, flavorful and best of all—dairy and vegan free!

I whipped this up on Sunday night and it took me about 15 minutes to prepare. In the past the coconut creamer has lasted about 5 days in the refrigerator (although mine never makes it that long!) It is so delicious and you don’t have to feel guilty about using it in the morning!

Without delay, the recipe is below! 

As a disclaimer, it is not half and half but it is a great alternative! I love to add some cinnamon to the top for a little something extra. Feel free to tweak the recipe to your liking. Add cinnamon, nutmeg or all spice if you would prefer! Any recipes for this newly dairy-free gal?
