I love coffee. My husband tells me I’m addicted to it. I just think the world starts a little bit better with a few cups of coffee. Way back before I started worrying about what was in the food I ate, coffee meant about half a cup of coffee and half a cup of one of those store bought coffee creamers. You know, the ones with genetically modified corn syrup solids and trans-fats. Once I realized exactly what I was stirring into my fair trade, organic coffee, I stopped, reluctantly. Now, I drink my coffee black with organic stevia but I still miss the taste of the creamy flavored coffee creamers I used to drink.
Pumpkin Spice Paleo Coffee Creamer
It seems like everywhere I look someone is posting about their seasonally flavored coffee and I’m missing flavored coffee creamers even more than ever before. I decided that the next time I made myself a cup of coffee in my Keurig 2.0, I would figure out how to make a Paleo coffee creamer that was pumpkin spice flavored.
This Paleo coffee creamer has coconut milk as a base. You should get the full fat kind because that is what gives the creamer a creamy texture. It’s not a super sweet coffee creamer so if you are still trying to kick your sugar habit or you don’t follow the Paleo diet and just want a dairy free coffee creamer, double the amount of maple syrup you use in this recipe. This Pumpkin Spice Paleo Coffee Creamer will give your coffee a hint of pumpkin spice without the super sweetness of traditional coffee creamers.
- 1 can full fat, organic, unsweetened coconut milk
- 2 tbsp real Vermont maple syrup
- 2 tbsp pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract (optional)
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- Put all of the ingredients in a blender & blend.
- Good for 4 days in the refrigerator.
If you’re going to make a great cup of coffee, and that’s really the only kind to drink, make sure you do it in a Keurig coffee maker. Walmart has a great selection of Keurig coffee makers including the new 2.0 that I’m in love with. Did you know they’re on rollback right now? Check out the prices!
I’m the first person to admit that I don’t function without coffee. I love the convenience of my Keurig but I hate the waste of traditional k-cups and the mess of reusable filters. At Intelligent Blends, you can get eco-friendly recyclable pods! Use my referral link and save 5% on your first order!
