Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer {for Chai Tea or Coffee}

Pin It
It has been such a great fall, weather was a little abnormal, but it's been a lot of fun. For some reason though, I am having a lot of trouble let go of the tastes of fall {aka the delicious pumpkin}!

I mean, I just had so much fun this fall with all things pumpkin. There was Gnocchi, lattes, whoopie pies, granola, spicy soup, popsicles, delicious breakfast cakes and so much more that I hate to see it all go.
I had already made a pumpkin syrup for lattes and other drinks but being that I am a black coffee and tea drinker, I wanted a creamer for those special weekend mornings when I woke up late and didn't get out of my jambes till after noon.

Chai tea was fantastic with this creamer and not too heavy in taste that overwhelmed the tea taste. Paul had this with his ritual morning coffee and loved it. It was the perfect way to end my harvest season {probably a little too late} but I am happy to end with a delicious creamy creamer.

Till next year....
