Homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer - the easiest way to have a delicious cup of your favorite pumpkin spice latte made in your own kitchen! This creamer is crazy good!
PUMPKIN SPICE COFFEE CREAMER
If you know me, you know that I am a huge coffee fan. And so is my Hubby. Each morning, before the kiddos wake up, we dedicate time to enjoy coffee together. Since I started making my own coffee creamer, the cup of joe is even sweeter. If I don't use my Cinnamon Roll Coffee Creamer, I add a splash of this Pumpkin Spice version. This coffee creamer will get you in the mood for fall and everything that comes with it.
This coffee creamer is crazy good! I used my homemade pumpkin pie spice (also crazy easy to make!), toasted it up in the saucepan, added pumpkin puree and milk with cream. Oh my! The fragrance of warm spices got me so excited for fall! I have to admit I took a sip of this creamer while still warm and it was everything I wanted it to be. Sweet, creamy and full of flavor.
HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN SPICE COFFEE CREAMER?
In a medium saucepan, toast up spices for 1 minute over medium heat.
Using a whisk, mix in pumpkin puree and brown sugar. Let it all heat up for about 30 seconds.
Remove from the heat.
Add milk and cream (or half and half). Whisk until well mixed.
Pour into a heat-proof glass bottle or cool to room temperature and pour into a container with lid.
Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
If you love quiet mornings disrupted only by the sounds of your coffee machine brewing your favorite coffee, whip up this creamer and swirl into your drink. Then enjoy it on your couch, or back in bed, or wrapped in your favorite sweater on your patio and soak up the moment. Best yet, if shared with your love.

Where did you get your glass containers to store it though?
Hi Kira! Thank you! You can find this carafe at Target. It's called Glass Carafe with Lid from Threshold. I hope this helps!
Anna: This recipe is so easy and so delicious in my coffee. Now, able to have Pumpkin Spice Creamer for my coffee, any time of the year, perfection. Thank you for posting this recipe on line.

Laura Kochajda says
I used heavy cream and it is delicious!!
Thank you, Laura!
This was delicious! I love frothing my creamer any recommendations on how to get a thicker creamer?
Theresa Mayo says
I thought this recipe was good. Not really sweet enough for me so I increased the amount of sugar. I wonder what would happen if I substituted sweetened condensed milk? It’s used to make pumpkin pie and perhaps it’ll boost the sweetness…? Also, I didn’t have allspice so I added ginger, cloves, (I like ginger and cloves a lot!) nutmeg and I used cinnamon sticks instead of ground cinnamon and 1/8 tsp of vanilla.
Hello, I was wondering if you can use just half and half for this recipe?

I've buying pumpking spice creamer all of a sudden no more shelf empty. So I'm thinking to make my own. So i went went to Google and i enter pumpkin spice creamer so i found few recipes. I don't use it my wife does
Thank you, John!
Di Lemberger says
This is the best recipe I've found. I do add vanilla extract and a cinnamon stick but that's personal preference. Thanks!
Packed with flavor! The only thing I did differently was strain my mixture with a mesh strainer! I just can’t stand drinking coffee with ingredients floating around lol
Thank you so much, Britt! Enjoy the creamer!
This sounds amazing and I can't wait to try it but do you know of a substitute for the pumpkin puree?
Another recipe perhaps. THis is pumpkin creamer
Sweet Potato Purée
Sandra Kipp says
This is really delicious! It's not hot though, so a heat proof container to keep it in isn't required. You recipe says to remove from heat and add the milk and cream, which cool it down substantially. I find it needs less milk, which I will try next time.
This is delicious, however I do like my cream more sweet. Would you recommend just adding more brown sugar, or something else?
I'm not the recipe blogger, but you could try adding a spoon more brown sugar or a pinch of vanilla powder. **Like they have at coffee shops. (I use the vanilla extract for baking, but it has an alcohol aftertaste I do not like in my drinks.)
Theresa M says
Maybe try sweetened condensed milk? My pumpkin pie recipe calls for it so it would make sense to use it as creamer. I haven’t tried it yet but it might work. I have the same problem. I need way more sugar! I don’t know exactly how healthy it would be…
Jo Ann Blagg says
Hey there. Did u try this with the sweetened condensed milk?? Just curious ! Lol
Hey this sounds amazing but is there a way to make it lactose free? I'm guessing I could use almonds milk in place of regular milk but I'm not sure what to use to substitute the cream. Would condensed coconut milk be too thick?
Hi Jessica! I made this coffee creamer with just almond milk and it was delicious. I did not try it with coconut milk so I can't say what the final result would be like. Definitely let me know if you try it!
Did you just omit the heavy cream and replace the milk with almond milk or did you replace both with almond milk?
I'm trying to make a vegan version and can not use either sources, but I don't know how much almond milk to use.
Hi Maria! I would replace both with almond milk or a mix of coconut milk and almond milk. Hope this helps!
TANYA M ARMENTI says
Hi! I use organic valley lactose free milk and 1/2 and 1/2.
Laura La Fontsee says
Toasting the spices is Brilliant!! I grated fresh nutmeg and cinnamon and added all spice. Oh my LOVE! It really enhances the Pumpkin..thank you...
That is the secret! 😀 Thank you for trying the recipe, Laura!
I would love to try this recipe for the pumpkin spice creamer but I can't seem to find the ingredients list.

Is the pumpkin puree something you bought from the store or did you make yourself? If it was DIY, how'd you do that? Also, I always try to reduce the sugar in recipes to keep that down a bit, I wonder how the stevia/lt brown sugar blend would do in this recipe?
Hi Lisa! I used store-bought pumpkin puree from a can. Substituting stevia for brown sugar should work just fine. Whatever you use to sweeten your coffee will work. You can skip the sugar completely and just make the creamer with pumpkin and spices. Then add sweetener to your coffee. I often find that using vanilla extract adds sweet flavor and I don't add sugar. I hope this helps! Let me know if you make it! Thank you!
yummy mummy kitchen says
Oh my gosh, my little one is home from school today and I NEED this coffee!
Carolyn Ingram says
It's not fall without pumpkin spice coffee! This is an awesome recipe!
Yay! Thank you, Carolyn!
I love pumpkin spice creamer since last fall LOL! I bet your homemade version is to die for, can't wait to try it!
Perfect seasonal addition to my daily cup of joe!!
What is the purpose of toasting the spices first? This recipe is awesome. I made it last year but I missed the toasting part.
Hi Fran! Thank you for the comment and the question! Toasting the spices sort of activates them. Makes them more fragrant and stronger. I hope this helps! I am so happy to know you made this recipe! Have a beautiful week! -Anna
I love pumpkin spice anything! Unfortunately I wouldn't be able to use that much in 5 days, could I freeze half?
Hi Kim! I am so glad to know you are a fellow pumpkin spice lover! 😀 I would suggest just making half of the recipe instead of freezing half because the fat in the creamer will separate during freezing and it will not be good for coffee. Hope this helps! Let me know if you make it! have a beautiful day! -Anna
Jennifer Smith says
I hope you don't mind, but I enjoyed your pumpkin recipe so much, that I put a link to it on my new blog. I can't wait for Autumn 🙂
hi anna -
well, I finally got around to trying this recipe and everyone (including all my 20 somethings) gave it a big thumbs up! (I even used your homemade pumpkin pie spice recipe)
we liked it even better than starbucks because it was not as cloyingly sweet and had a nice full "real pumpkin" nicely spiced flavor. thanks for sharing this winner...
Hi Jodi! I am so happy to hear that! I had other readers compare it to Starbucks and say the same thing - the sweetness level is better! Thank you so much for trying the recipe and letting me know!
Have a wonderful holidays!
PS: I have a new coffee creamer recipe coming later this week! 🙂
Pumpkin spice is my whole reason for waking up in the Autumn haha!! But I can't always be bothered to go to Starbucks, so this homemade version is fabulous!!
I made it this afternoon and posted about you on my blog today! We loved it!
Yay! That's fantastic! Thank you so much, Patty!!
Yes! I so love this - as much as I love my alone time with my coffee in the a.m. 😉
I'm excited that this will last for about 5 days. What a great treat!
Thank you, Patricia!
This looks delicious- I need this with a cup of coffee 🙂
Marla Meridith says
Isn't pumpkin season the best?! This creamer is a genius recipe...must try!
YES! Thanks, Marla!
This coffee creamer sounds like the perfect way to get my pumpkin spice fix in my morning coffee, without having to spend a gazillion dollars (and calories) at a coffee shop. Yum! Also, I love your little coffee ritual with your husband!
Oh... how fun that you and the hubs have morning coffee time! I wish we could do that, but my husband wakes up at like 5am and that is WAY to early for this girl! But at least I can enjoy this creamer, love me some pumpkin!
Cathy Pollak says
Oh my gosh this sounds perfect!!
Becky Hardin says
Um...GENIUS!! This looks divine and is a must make this season!
Yummy, I'd love to add this to my hot chocolate!
I love the idea of spending time with your hubby before the kids wake up...too bad my kids are up at 5am. I just can't make it any earlier than that! This creamer looks wonderful! Nothing better than homemade!!
