There are few things in this world that scream “Autumn” quite so much as Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Unfortunately, because we try to refrain from ingesting cow’s milk and refined sugars, our options for this tasty Fall beverage are quite limited.
Well, as it turns out, necessity is, indeed, the mother of invention and we NEEDED to get our pumpkin fix on so I came up with this Healthier Pumpkin Spice Creamer recipe. With a soy milk base, natural sugar sources, and the healthy benefits of coconut oil, I can now enjoy my Pumpkin Spice latte at home and feel good about it too!
The ingredients for this Healthier Pumpkin Spice Creamer are really easy and straight forward; Silk Soymilk, Organic Pumpkin Puree, Dates, Maple Syrup, Spices, and Coconut Oil. Click here to read more about the health benefits Silk Soymilk.
I highly suggest using Medjool Dates because of their softer texture and wonderfully sweet flavor but in a pinch, any date will do. Definitely don’t skip out on soaking them for about 20 minutes though. After soaking, the date skins will be easier to remove and blending will be much smoother.
Once the dates have been soaked and their skins removed, place all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and pulse until completely pulverized. I blended mine for a full minute and then another minute more to be safe. There’s nothing worse than gritty creamer!
You can either use the creamer right away or place in the fridge to thicken up a bit. We’ve been cutting back on our coffee consumption at home so I added mine to huge mug of black tea. It tasted absolutely amazing and even though it was 95 degrees outside, made me feel like I was celebrating Autumn!
If you put the creamer in a well-sealed container, it should last about a week in the fridge but really, this creamer is so good there’s no way it’ll last that long!
