This Whole30 pumpkin spice creamer is creamy, smooth, and perfectly spiced. Vegan and unsweetened (but with an option for sweetening!), this creamer is such a great Whole30 fall recipe and the perfect way to start your autumn mornings.
What Makes This Recipe So Good
Are you a PSL lover or PSL hater? Actually, don’t tell me, ’cause this one’s for the PSL lovers. My late-night radio call-in Whitney Houston dedication to y’all, because you’re the ones who choke down steaming hot lattes in 90º weather the moment Starbucks chalks #PSL on their menu boards. The ones who go without for 9 months of the year, just waiting to see what the mega-chain is going to do to your beloved orange beverage this year.
The ones who are finally free from that $4.43 per cup habit.
That’s right, my friends. I’ve tested approximately four thousand unsweetened Whole30 pumpkin spice creamer recipes and finally found one that’s worthy of your love.
It’s easy and creamy and smooth and spiced and pumpkinny but not too pumpkinny, and I really, really think you’re going to love it. Especially since it’s fall Whole30 season, and we’re all gearing up for cookies-every-day November and December, right? So now is the perfect time to get your Whole30 pumpkin spice creamer on: all of the flavor, none of the questionable ingredients, nada sugar, zip dairy.
It’s actually just so much like a regular creamer, none of the clumpiness you get from a purely cashew creamer, none of the separation you get from a purely coconut creamer. It’s not too heavy on any one spice (I’m looking at you, 95%-ground-clove pumpkin spice blend), but the perfect blend to start your fall mornings. Or at least those morning when you really, really wish it were fall… but it’s still 9000º. It’s for those mornings, too!
Can I use all coconut milk?
Eh….. I really wish you wouldn’t. I’ve tested it with all coconut and with all cashew both, and it’s by far the best with the blend. However, if you have a nut allergy, you could likely sub more coconut milk for the nuts, replacing them with about 2-2 1/2 cups coconut milk. If you don’t have a nut allergy, though, I really want you to try it as written!
Can I skip the coconut milk?
Totally. Simply substitute almond milk for the coconut milk, or add 2 more tablespoons cashews + 1/3 cup water to the blended mixture. You might have to thin the mixture just a bit, but it’ll be a good place to start.
How long does this creamer last?
This vegan Whole30 pumpkin spice creamer should last about a week in the fridge.
Can I sweeten this creamer?
Totally! As long as you’re not actually on a Whole30, you can absolutely sweeten this vegan pumpkin spice creamer. I’d simply start with about 1/3 cup maple syrup and add more to taste.
Do I need to strain it?
Nah, but you can! It’ll make the creamer even smoother, but it’s not totally necessary. It’s great either way.
- Try adding 1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder to this vegan pumpkin spice creamer for a pumpkin chocolate variation.
- Add about 1/3 cup real maple syrup, plus more to taste, to this vegan pumpkin spice creamer (if you’re not on a Whole30!) for a sweetened version.
- Make your own pumpkin pie spice blend! It’s SO easy to do, and pretty cost-effective, too.
