I was sent this coffee by Shuffle Bean in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.
Fall is so close I can feel it. Pumpkin flavors are officially out in stores and coffee shops nationwide, and that makes me a very happy girl. Fall is my favorite, and I am very basic when it comes to my love of pumpkin.
Pumpkin coffees can get expensive. It comes in K-cups, ground coffee, creamer, and many different coffee shop concoctions. I’ve teamed up with Shuffle Bean Coffee to bring you a recipe for a creamer you can make at home. It’s inexpensive, and it’s good!
For this recipe, you will need:
2 Cups milk (I used Lactaid Lactose Free Milk)
¼ Cup Pumpkin purée
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp sugar (or sugar substitute)
Add all of the ingredients to a pot (you can mix the milk and spices in a measuring cup first if desired). Whisk to combine. Cook 5-7 minutes on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Make sure the mixture is completely heated through.
Once the mixture is completely heated, pour the mixture into a glass measuring cup. Let the mixture completely cool. It can be left at room temperature or placed in the refrigerator, depending how quickly you need it cooled.
Once the mixture has completely cooled, whisk the mixture to disperse the spices back into the mixture. Transfer to a glass jar for storage (I keep all those iced coffee jars you can buy at the grocery for this kind of thing. They’re perfect for storing homemade creamers. Mason jars also work really well). Keep refrigerated until ready to pour.
When the creamer has completely cooled, pour a cup of coffee and add your perfect creamer amount (I like my coffee to be almost unrecognizable as coffee – AKA creamer with a hint of coffee). I love using Shuffle Bean Coffee. It’s Rainforest Alliance Certified and is made with beans grown in Costa Rica. It has a great taste (if you don’t agree, there’s a 100% money back guarantee).
If you try this recipe, make sure to let me know! I’m so excited for pumpkin everything, and coffee is a daily staple for me. Creamer is definitely a must, and I’m really excited to combine my love of pumpkin and coffee!
