Make Your Own Coffee Creamer
This morning started out with a experiment in my kitchen that included cinnamon and coffee. What a wonderful way to wake up! I can hardly wait 10 months of the year for the delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte. So I decided to make my own Pumpkin Spice Creamer with no idea how it would turn out. I am happy to report that the experiment was a success and I am drinking some Pumpkin Spice Coffee at this very moment.
I’ve had cans of fat-free sweetened condensed milk in my baking cupboard for about a year with no idea what to use them for. Into the creamer they went!
In a medium saucepan, heat 7 oz. fat-free sweetened condensed milk with 3/4 cup non-fat milk until well-blended.
Next, add in a dash of nutmeg, a pinch of cloves, 1/2 tsp. all-spice, and 1 tsp cinnamon. YUM! Smells like Autumn…
Continue to whisk together and allow to heat until it begins to steam (not boil!). Cool for 5-10 minutes before pouring into container and refrigerating. Lasts in fridge approx. 10 days.
Pay no attention to the fact that it is August and I am already bringing out Fall decorations ;)
I used an emptied water bottle for my creamer container, and this recipe makes about 1 1/4 cups of creamer (10 servings of 2 Tbs). Though it is fat-free, there is still a significant sugar content because of the sweetened ccondensed milk. A serving of 2 tbs is 60 calories, 13 grams of sugar and 0 grams of fat. A homemade pumpkin treat? Priceless.
I would imagine this would be pretty darn tasty in a bowl of oatmeal too…There will be more creamer flavor experiments in the future!

This looks amazing! Not only am I now dreaming of recreating your coffee creamer, but pumpkin spice OATMEAL? Yum! :D
I would eat everything pumpkin flavor, sooo comforting :)
Nice! Perfect timing, too! This is the first morning that I woke up freezing and everything about it is pretty much screaming autumn haha
Isn’t it nice waking up chilly as opposed to blasting the air conditioner at 6am?! :)
This is genius!! Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer? Love it! :)
Thank You! I was surprised at how good it came out myself! :)
That looks awesome!! I had a friend make pumpkin spice coffee yesterday, she said she just sprinkled pumpkin pie spice in the coffee grinds before brewing it and voila! When I’m over my coffee aversion I’m going to have to give it a try ;)
Thanks! Your friend’s version sounds a lot less time-consuming/sugary/messy…I will have to try that too :) This was fun though, I do recommend. Maybe the fall weather will have you craving coffee again!
I’m definitely going to try this for tomorrow morning! It’s raining like crazy and my creamer just ran out
This sounds yummy and really easy! However I didn’t see you list pumpkin in the ingredients? Did I miss it? I’ve got about a cup of pumpkin purée I need I use and thought coffee creamer would be perfect!
