Pumpkin Spice Creamer Ingredients
There are just 5 ingredients needed to make up a batch of this easy pumpkin spice creamer recipe.
- Whole milk – I use whole milk as it is creamier, but you can substitute any milk you like.
- Sweetened condensed milk – you’ll need a 14oz can.
- Pumpkin puree – homemade puree or canned pumpkin – either is fine to use.
- Pumpkin spice blend – buy as a blend or make your own with common spices you may already have at home (see below).
- Vanilla extract – I have listed this as optional, but a good quality vanilla extract really lifts this creamer and enhances the flavor.
What’s In Pumpkin Spice?
Pumpkin spice is an aromatic spice blend of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves.
It is similar to mixed spice in the UK and is a popular spice blend for use in Fall recipes such as pumpkin pie and pumpkin spice lattes.
However it can be hard to find outside the US and often expensive to buy.
So if you don’t want to invest in a bottle, simply make your own by combining 1 tablespoon of cinnamon with 1 teaspoon each of ground ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Stir to combine and store in a airtight jar.

How To Make Pumpkin Spice Creamer
1. Warm Ingredients
Place the sweetened condensed milk, milk and pumpkin puree in a saucepan over medium heat and whisk to combine.
Heat gently (be careful not to boil) until warm.
2. Add Spices
Add the pumpkin spice and vanilla extract (if using) and whisk to combine.
Simmer gently for 5 minutes to allow the spices to infuse with the creamer. The mixture should be fragrant.
Remove the creamer mixture from the heat and once slightly cooled, strain the mixture through a sieve into a jar.
4. Serve Or Store
Use as little or as much pumpkin pie spice creamer as you like in your coffee. The serving size is 2-3 tablespoons, but I tend to add a little more for a super creamy coffee drink.
Store remaining coffee creamer in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.
Homemade Pumpkin Creamer Recipe Tips
- Shake before using after storing in the fridge – the ingredients will settle and separate when stored.
- Use any leftover pumpkin puree in this delicious pumpkin muffins recipe – perfect to enjoy with your morning coffee.
- Don’t let the mixture boil – a gentle simmer is all that is needed to combine and infuse the ingredients.
- If you want to reduce the sugar content, replace 1 can of sweetened condensed milk with 1/2 can of condensed milk and 1/2 cup heavy cream. It won’t be as thick but will still have a creamy texture.
