This past month, we bought ourselves a French press (check my post on my favorites) and haven’t looked back. Every day we make ourselves either an iced coffee or a hot latte. We also have been trying out many different coffee blends, syrups and creamers. Some creamers are amazing, whereas others taste too sugary or fake. Looking at the ingredient list, I am shocked by how many chemicals and other ingredients are in there. So, I thought there must be a way to make your own creamer at home. And to make it extra special, I decided to make a homemade pumpkin spice creamer.
I watched many YouTube videos and read a ton of blog posts about how to make coffee in a french press. There are even ways to make latte art using a french press at home! (This I’m still learning and trying to perfect). There is a whole other world out there all about making coffee at home. Although I’m not a coffee connoisseur, I do enjoy myself an iced coffee daily and a latte a couple of times a week. In terms of creamers, there are a ton of recipes out there. This recipe is a combination of what I learned as well as what I think should go into a homemade pumpkin spice creamer. I think it tastes pretty amazing, but if you try it, let me know what you think!
Okay, now on to the recipe:
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer Recipe
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cup milk of choice (we used almond milk)
2 tbsp pumpkin puree
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cardamom
1 jar to hold the homemade pumpkin spice creamer
spoon to mix
- In a jar, add the entire can of the sweetened condensed milk.
- Next, add the milk. To make it less messy and less cleanup, pour the milk into the can of the condensed milk to measure and pour into the jar. You want a 1:1 ratio of sweetened condensed milk to milk.
- Stir to mix using the spoon, or you can use the shaking method.
- Now add in the pumpkin puree, cinnamon and cardamom.
- Stir or shake to mix.
- Use a strainer to strain out any lumps or clumps.
There you have it! Your homemade pumpkin spice creamer. You can keep this in the fridge for up to a week. Our lasted 5 days – we made 2 iced coffees with the creamer every day. To make your own iced coffee, add in cold brew (you can do this at home using a French press), ice and top it up with however much creamer you prefer. And now you have yourself a pumpkin spice iced coffee!
