You will never want to purchase another store-bought pumpkin coffee creamer again after you try this homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer recipe. It is super simple and 0h-so-delicious.
I had so much fun making and perfecting this recipe. I had to make (and sample) several different batches until I got it to my liking. There are so many variations you could do to this. More pumpkin or less pumpkin… more maple syrup or less maple syrup… coconut milk instead of heavy cream. You get the point.
I had originally planned on putting in one drop of Nutmeg essential oil. But after I added the Cinnamon Bark essential oil, it was perfect! I didn’t think it needed nutmeg.
Caution… You can easily overdo Cinnamon Bark essential oil. A little goes a very long way. This stuff is super potent. I never drop it directly into recipes because it is sometimes hard to control how much comes out. Therefore, I just put a drop on a spoon and then stir it into the recipe. Wait until the recipe cools off before adding the cinnamon bark to preserve the therapeutic qualities.
Pure maple syrup is key! I’ve seen other Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer recipes floating around out there. Some of them call for simple syrup or even a can of sweetened condensed milk. Oh no! Not in Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer. Pure maple syrup is a must. I picked up this bottle of Maple Syrup on our last trip to Upstate New York. I highly recommend it if you can find it.
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 4 tablespoons pureed pumpkin

Go easy on the essential oil. A little goes a LONG WAY. To help make sure I don't get more drops than I need, I never drop directly into my recipes. Instead, I put the correct amount of drops in a teaspoon and then stir into my recipes.
You can also add 1-2 tablespoons of organic coconut oil for its health benefits.
