As I’m sure most of my regular readers know, I love coffee. I love it even more in the fall when I can add pumpkin cream to it. Normally, I have iced coffee with 2% milk and one sweet n’ low. I stay away from creamers except for over the holidays. Last year, I bought flavored beans and used 2% milk, but this year I have been getting into making my own coffee creamers.
If you look at the ingredient list in Coffee-Mate or International Delight, you’ll see that most of the ingredients are unrecognizable. I’m by no means the healthiest eater in the world, but I do want to at least know and understand what’s going into my body. The exception to the unheard of ingredients in coffee creamers is Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss. The ingredients are milk, cream, sugar and a natural flavoring. This is by-far my favorite creamer and is the one I used in the recipe you’re about to read. Next time, I plan on making my own base, too.
Homemade Pumpkin Vanilla Spice Creamer
recipe adapted from one cheap utah chick
- 1 Bottle Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss Cinnamon Cream
- 1/4 c. Pumpkin Puree
- 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
- Place all ingredients into a bowl or blender and mix or blend (I used a whisk in a big bowl).
- Carefully pour back into the Natural Bliss cream container (I carefully removed the label) and enjoy.
Seriously you guys, this was so good. I may or may not have had a few spoonfuls of straight cream, and had a cup of coffee at 7:00 pm to try it out…two nights in a row.
You’ll have to shake it before each use. I’ve been adding it to my pecan pie flavored beans and it’s just fall heaven in a cup. Getting up is easier knowing that I have such a yummy treat awaiting me downstairs.
Have you ever made homemade coffee creamer?

Yum, this looks SO awesome!! I am totally going to give this a try out. I actually just discovered natural bliss too because I’ve been trying to stay away from coffee mate for all the reasons you mentioned above. I am loving this adaptation to make my coffee fall flavored. Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂
