I love baking with pumpkin, but I always seem to have some leftover! Not enough to bake something else, but too much to throw away. Enter this homemade pumpkin spice coffee creamer.
With a mild spice and pumpkin flavor, a cup of coffee with this creamer has become my daily afternoon treat (made even better with these pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies!). The flavor is similar to commercially flavored creamers, but not as sweet. So, if you are a person who likes your coffee sweetened (I am), then you will still want to add a bit of sugar or other sweetener.
Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3 tablespoons pureed pumpkin
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 4 tablespoons real maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium saucepan, whisk together milk, heavy cream, pumpkin, spices and maple syrup. Heat on medium heat, stirring frequently until mixture begins to steam. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Strain through a fine mesh seive, and store in the refrigerator.
