Happy Wednesday! It is Pumpkin Season!!! There are pumpkin items everywhere! I recently had to break up with a seasonal icon that signified fall for me. 🙁 For many years when this latte came out I knew it was fall! Due to the ingredients used by said company and becuase they possibly contain gluten and not to mention gross chemicals I had to call it quits.

Here is my take on Pumpkin Pie Coffee Creamer. It is not as sweet as said company’s but I don’t like sweet coffee. If you like your coffee sweeter you can add more honey 🙂 Happy Pumpkin Season!
Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Coffee Creamer:
1 can coconut milk (full fat)
2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1/2 can pure pumpkin
3 – 4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2-1/3 cup honey
2 vanilla bean pods split and seeded with a knife.
Heat all ingredients in a pot until warmed. The honey should melt and the vanilla should fragrance the milk mixture. I wisked to combine as it got warm. Place in a BPA free container and store in your fridge!
I made enough for 2 mason jars. I decided to keep one and give one to a friend for taste testing. I am thankful she does not like sweet coffee as well!
