It’s fall, it’s morning…..Vegan Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer in my coffee.
There’s just something about the way it smells and tastes that speaks cool, cozy, fresh fall mornings. Comfy socks, pajamas, perfect morning light pouring into your perfectly sized living room window as you snuggle up with a blanket and watch the perfectly browned leaves fall off of the trees outside.
ALL of that in this one cup of jo!
I actually tried to create this moment pretty recently, but it was a total fail (so sad). A small cold front had come in, and I was like AHHHH….fall! I had just sent Cody off to work and I thought, “It would be awesomely refreshing to work from the guest bedroom bed today”. That bed sits next to a window that gets decent morning light, so in my head I pretty much had the above scenario perfectly planned out + a laptop.
I opened the window, set up my workstation, put some comfy socks on, and went to make my cup of coffee. As I went to sit on the bed, I spilled that cup of coffee all over our WHITE comforter. After cleaning up the mess and putting the comforter in the washer, I sat down (coffee-less) to start writing, and my “leaves falling off of trees” view was actually….the apartments across the street. With a million cars driving by. And the greenest trees ever because it’s not cold enough. And then a knock on my door. And then the washer started spinning out of control. And then Cody came home early to fix some things we’ve been having problems with at our house. And there I was…in a t-shirt, shorts, messy hair, no makeup…and random socks.
Gotta love those moments in life. Nailed it!
I actually got more of that fall dream moment in this Vegan Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer than I did in real life.
This stuff is so good! And healthy, as in not filled with preservatives, chemicals, and sugar/dairy overload. If you have leftover pumpkin puree, you can also use it to make these Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats for breakfast the next day!
Each serving is about 1/4 Cup. However, you can adjust the serving size depending on how sweet or strong you like your coffee! Somedays I like less, somedays it’s just the right amount. Once you make the creamer, you can store it in the fridge for about 1.5 weeks! These vintage glass milk bottles are a great and adorable way to store it!
