Easy Pumpkin Spice Creamer

So, does anyone else have the same pumpkin spice fever that I do? I go through waves in the fall when I want pumpkin spice everything - oatmeal, coffee, smoothies - and I am certainly in the PSL phase right now. However, I wanted to make my own version of pumpkin spice creamer since the typical Starbucks variety is loaded with sugar and ingredients I can't pronounce. You know me and needing to know what's in my food ; ) So, I conjured up this super easy pumpkin spice creamer and am currently drinking it in my coffee this morning. Tasty, tasty.

You will need:
Pumpkin spice (cloves, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, in case you don't have a blend of spices)
Extra cinnamon, add to your liking
2 spoonfuls of pumpkin puree
Honey (or sweetener of your choice)
Cashew milk (or use actual creamer to get a thicker consistency)

To make:

- In a medium pot toast your pumpkin spice and cinnamon until it is nice and fragrant. Be sure to have your element on low heat to ensure nothing gets burned : ) 
- Add in your pumpkin puree and vanilla, and mix until the spices are combined. By this time it will be smelling like fall in your kitchen!
- Next, add your cashew milk or cream. I used about a cup of this, though use as much as you'd like!
- Whisk the creamer mixture and add in your honey/sweetener and vanilla
- Allow this to get warm on the stove before pouring it into a glass jar, or let it cool and put it into a container of your choice

VOILA! Super, super easy. I added a little bit more honey in the morning to make it a touch bit sweeter in my coffee.

The very last step, of course, is to make some coffee and pour yourself a big ol' mug! It makes a nice accompaniment to pumpkin spice oats, too ; ) 


There we have it. Easy pumpkin spice creamer you can make at home. Let me know in the comments if you try it or if you are a PSL lover!
