If you’re a pumpkin spice fan, you’re going to love this Sugar Free Pumpkin Spice Coffee creamer – it has all of your favorite flavors of fall but without all of the sugar!
It’s no surprise to anyone who’s been reading the blog for more than a week that I am obsessed with all things pumpkin spice. Call me #basic, but I do not even care. For the past month I’ve been dreaming up pumpkin spice treats to share with you all, but we all know that one pumpkin spice treat reigns supreme this time of year: the Pumpkin Spice Latte. From Pumpkin Spice Glazed Croissants to Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese, I’m dreaming of the iconic flavor of fall.
But let’s be honest -no one is ordering a pumpkin spice latte and thinking the sugary treat is good for them. The sugar content is definitely pretty extreme, and considering that I try to keep my own intake down due to my skin reacting to it, I found myself trying to find out how to make my beloved drink without all of the sugar.
Low and behold – sugar-free pumpkin spice coffee creamer! This perfectly spiced addition to your morning (or afternoon or evening..) cup is the best way to get in a fix of your favorite fall flavor without all the sugar.
I like to add mine to some steamed milk and half a cup of warmed cold brew coffee, but any strong coffee will do – obviously espresso is the best choice if you have the means! Oh, and if you’re looking for a quick way to make frothy milk without a milk steamer, warm up a bunch of milk and then blend it up in your blender – it aerates it and foams it perfectly to make an amazing latte.
Sugar-Free Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer
2 cups milk of choice – I used half and half
2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
.5 cup pumpkin puree
Vanilla stevia (or other sweetener + about 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla) to taste
Heat the milk, pumpkin, and pumpkin spice until hot – not boiling – and pour into blender and liquefy until smooth.
Strain through cheese cloth. This step isn’t 100% necessary, but it helps to ensure a very smooth creamer that isn’t crazy thick. Stir in sweetener and enjoy in your favorite coffee!
