Homemade Pumpkin Coffee Creamer

Imagine waking on a crisp autumn morning, with a view of colorful red and golden leaves dancing against the backdrop of a cloudless azure sky. Could anything possibly be more perfect? Actually...yes! Add a steamy cup of pumpkin spice coffee to this picture, warming your slightly chilled hands, and filling your entire home with its magical fragrance.

This idyllic scene can become your reality in just minutes—without the expense or questionable ingredients that often come with commercially flavored coffee preparations. This vegan, gut-healthy creamer’s base is rich in prebiotics, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Pumpkin puree adds additional prebiotics, along with vital nutrients, including vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, B vitamins, iron, manganese, and pantothenic acid.

Enjoy this creamer while you transform your morning coffee into a pumpkin-y treat, or get creative and add it to chai tea, oatmeal, smoothies, or even homemade granola. Whichever way you serve it, it’s sure to be a hit that colors all the best memories of this beautiful season.
