Dairy-Free Pumpkin Coffee Creamer
The base of pumpkin spice coffee creamer is obviously cream. I recommend heavy cream for the richest flavor and texture, but half-and-half or whole milk can be used instead. For a dairy-free alternative, try using coconut milk, cashew milk, or almond milk.
One favorite way to enjoy coffee in the fall? Add a splash of homemade pumpkin creamer, then top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. Talk about dreamy. I also enjoy a few lighter pumpkin frappuccinos every season!
PS: Since this recipe uses such a small amount of pumpkin puree, you may have extras to use up. Here are recipes to make with leftover pumpkin puree. Enjoy!Print

- Dairy Free Creamer: Try using coconut, cashew, or almond milk.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice: I like a lot of spice, so I add close to 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Taste and add however much you like. You can buy pumpkin pie spice from the store or use homemade pumpkin pie spice. If you don’t have either and wish to use the individual spices in this recipe, use a pinch each of ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground cloves, and ground allspice.
