Pumpkin Spice + Vanilla + Amaretto + Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer

DIY Coffee Creamer - pumpkin spice, vanilla, amaretto, peppermint mocha ... via the Prairie Cottage

I get a lot of questions on the pumpkin spice coffee creamer, but not too many of you find the post of these other creamer recipes… so I decided to combine them all in one post!

That, and answer some of the questions I get related to these recipes.  Which reminds me – please, please, please make sure you have enabled your email so that I can respond to you!!  If not, I have no way to contact you to answer your questions, which is very frustrating!

So anyway.  In no particular order, here are the answers to frequently asked coffee creamer questions:

1.  These recipes use powder coffee creamer. One national brand is called “Coffeemate,” but there are also generic and store brands of powdered coffee creamer.
2.  Any brand of powder coffee creamer can be used.  It is not necessary to use the Coffeemate brand.  Just make sure it is plain, unflavored powder creamer.
3.  Pumpkin pie spice is a blend of spices that is sold in the same section where you find cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.  There are also DIY recipes for making your own… a quick search on Google or Pinterest will find you a recipe for pumpkin pie spice. 
4.  These creamers are added into a cup of already brewed coffee, to add flavor.  It is not the kind of mix that is used with hot water alone. 
5.  It keeps well and does not need to be refrigerated. 
6.  It is fine to use more (or less!) sugar, extracts, spices, etc.  Adjust to your personal tastes :)
7.  Splenda may be used in place of sugar.

AND here are the recipes:

(Directions are the same for all flavors and are at the end of the post).

VANILLA
3/4 cup powdered coffee creamer
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract

AMARETTO
3/4 cup powdered coffee creamer
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

PEPPERMINT MOCHA
3/4 cup powdered coffee creamer
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

PUMPKIN SPICE
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup powdered coffee creamer
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon vanilla

DIRECTIONS:  Place all of the ingredients for the flavor you are making into a food processor.  Process for about a minute, or until it is powdery smooth and the texture is even.  Store in a glass jar or other airtight container that has a lid.

Add 1-2 tablespoons of flavored creamer to each 6-8 ounce cup of coffee. 

**Don’t forget that flavored creamers make great gifts!!

**Double, triple or quadruple the ingredients, so you don’t have to make it as often. Just sayin’.

 Also.  A little whipped cream on top makes it even better!

Thanks so much for the recipes! I think the creamer packed in those cute quilted looking canning jars with a couple of dollar store mugs would make a super gift!

Do the tablespoon / teaspoons mix well with all the dry ingredients? I haven't tried it yet,& it doesn't sound like it would flavor all the dry ingredients

Shelley said...

Yep, they sure do. You can always add more spices, vanilla and/or mint, if you like it stronger :)
