Homemade Pumpkin Pie Creamer

How do you take your coffee? I love mine with a little cream and sugar. There are tons of flavored creamers in yummy flavors like pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha, but most have some questionable, unpronounceable ingredients. Instead I usually opt for plain old half and half or milk, but every once in a while it’s fun to try something new and different.

I’ve seen homemade creamer recipes around Pinterest for a while, and finally decided to make my own in one of the best fall flavors: pumpkin spice. It’s incredibly easy – you just take 4 all natural ingredients, heat them all up and then strain them. That’s it! Pour it into a container, pop it in your fridge, and use it every morning for a sweet start to the day. It tastes like pumpkin pie (how can you beat that?) and makes the morning routine a little more delicious.

I can’t wait to try making other flavored creamers. Peppermint mocha is definitely on my short list (that is another flavor I wish was available year round!). What is your favorite creamer flavor?

Pumpkin Pie Creamer


  • 2 cups half and half (or 1 cup half and half + 1 cup of milk)
  • 4 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 3-5 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk all the ingredients together.
  2. Heat until the mixture begins to steam, stirring occasionally, then remove from heat.
  3. Pour the creamer through a fine mesh strainer.
  4. Let it cool, then store in an air-tight container in the fridge.

      Kristy, the great thing about making your own creamer is you can make it as sweet (or not sweet) as you want. You could make this without any maple syrup and just have a hint of pumpkin spice added to your coffee.

      Ruth, I’d check the expiration date on the half and half – it should last at least that long. After that, smell/taste to see if it’s still good.
