‘Tis the season, friends! We’ve taken inspiration from the ever-classic Pumpkin Spice Latte and put our own twist on it with this super simple homemade coffee creamer. The result: dairy-free, naturally sweetened pumpkin spice lattes FAST.
This ultra creamy and perfectly-spiced coffee companion adds the dreamiest touch of fall to hot or iced coffee or tea! And it comes together in just 5 minutes with 8 ingredients you probably have around right now. Let us show you how it’s done!
How to Make Pumpkin Spice Creamer
What do we want? A flavorful, sweet, and luscious creamer that’s perfect for hot or iced coffee. When do we want it?! As soon as humanly possible (please and thank you)!
This EASY, dairy-free creamer starts with a base of coconut milk, cashew butter, and water. Using cashew butter rather than whole cashews is the ultimate hack for getting a whipped cream level of creaminess without any soaking, waiting, or vigorous blending. We love it.
Next up, FLAVOR. For a perfectly punchy pumpkin spice taste, we rely on vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and fresh ginger. A pinch of sea salt adds balance while maple syrup adds natural sweetness! Then blend and get ready for magic.
We hope you LOVE this pumpkin spiced coffee creamer! It’s:
Quick & easy
& PERFECT for fall!
It’s the dreamiest fall-infused treat that’s ready and waiting to be added to your morning cup of joe. Add a splash and enjoy it with other fall-forward treats, like our Best Vegan Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread, Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites, or 1-Bowl Vegan Coffee Cake (GF, Oil-Free).

Servings 10 (3 ½ Tbsp servings)
- 1 cup water
- 3/4 cup canned full-fat coconut milk
- 1/4 cup raw cashew butter
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 ½ Tbsp fresh ginger, finely chopped (1 ½ -inch piece yields ~1 ½ Tbsp or 10 g)
- 1/8 heaping tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 pinch sea salt
Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Strain (optional) to remove any stringy bits of ginger, and transfer to an airtight container or bottle. Shake before using to distribute the spices.
Enjoy in hot or iced coffee or in steeped black tea. We like ~3 ½ Tbsp creamer for an 8 oz. coffee. Leftover creamer keeps for 4-5 days in the refrigerator or can be frozen in an ice cube tray for easy pumpkin spice iced coffee!
