So I have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting for Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice Creamer to hit the shelves where I’m at, but it doesn’t look like it’s happening. I love their pumpkin creamer because it’s not too sweet and just the right amount of pumpkin flavor.
Pumpkin spice creamer is like a Fall ritual for me. Without it I feel like I’m not celebrating the season appropriately. So, I decided to do a homemade pumpkin spice creamer to hold me over — until Bailey’s gets here (crossing fingers it does come). If it doesn’t hit the shelves, no need to cry — because this pumpkin spice creamer is delicious! It’s got the perfect amount of pumpkin flavor and it’s not too rich.
This homemade pumpkin spice creamer is super easy. I’m using CoffeeMate Natural Bliss in Cinnamon — my year-round go-to creamer by the way — pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. Just as a side note, never buy pumpkin pie spice. It’s super easy to make (check out The Kitchn’s recipe for it here).

I only drink Natural Bliss creamer. It has sugar, milk, cream and natural flavors — not all the fake dairy and nasty crap regular CoffeeMate is notorious for. Plus, I LOVE the flavor of their cinnamon one. Sure, it’s more expensive and yes, there are like no coupons out there for it, but I don’t care. I don’t like sickly sweet coffee — I don’t like sickly sweet anything. So I’ll gladly pay a little more for the good stuff.
Note the ingredients. Real milk, heavy cream, and sugar. Read the back of a normal coffee creamer and you might gag. Yeah, it may say “creamer”, but other coffee creamers don’t have anything close to cream. In fact, they have:
Imitation dairy, corn syrup, partially hydrogenated cottonseed and/or soybean oil, sodium caseinate, and assorted fats. Need I say more?
I’m not going to label this coffee creamer as “clean”, because it was still purchased and made commercially. Plus, I have a huge pet peeve with food being labeled as “clean”. I’ll get to that another day.
Don’t get me wrong though. The second Bailey’s pumpkin creamer does come out, I’m going to buy like 12 of them. I don’t care what crap is in them — it’s my seasonal splurge!
So I made this coffee creamer and tested it with San Francisco Bay Coffee Fog Chaser. This is by far one of my favorite coffees for the Keurig — and it’s cheap! Do you have to use this one? No. But was just telling you what I drank it with.
OK, are you ready for how super easy this is? Pumpkin spice, pumpkin puree and Natural Bliss creamer. That’s right. OK you need a blender too, but if you’re feeling lazy, break out a bowl and a whisk. Make sure to use 100% Pure Pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling. Yes, there’s a difference.
I just love the color of this creamer! And, when you open the bottle (yes, I just removed the label of the old creamer), it has a creamy, heavenly pumpkin scent!
Now, I didn’t add sweeteners to this recipe, but if you absolutely must have a sweet coffee creamer, then add some maple syrup. Because Natural Bliss already has sugar, I didn’t feel it was necessary.
What is your favorite Fall coffee creamer? Do you make your own or buy it?
