You guys.  I did it.  I waited patiently until it was officially, unequivocally fall before I went all pumpkin spice on you.  I’ve secretly been enjoying this creamer in my coffee for weeks, weeks!  And now that fall is here, I get to share it with you!

Healthy, homemade pumpkin spice creamer.  What could be better?  Have you ever read the plethora of ingredients that together comprise a traditional coffee creamer?  When I did last year I was appalled!  I couldn’t pronounce most of them!  I’ve since switched to this creamer for my store-bought favorite but also enjoy mixing up my own, personal concoctions with which to sweeten my morning cup of coffee that I love oh-so-much.  With only a few ingredients, this one comes together in a flash.  I make mine on Sunday and keep it in a sealed, glass container in the fridge all week.  I typically soak the dates in warm water for about ten minutes to soften them and then blend everything together in food processor or high-speed blender until the mixture reaches a smooth consistency. 

I also have a revelation to share today that will shock anyone who knows me well, I am certain.  As fall rolled around this year and my Instagram feed surrendered to all things PSL I realized I had never had one.  I know!  All the fuss that surrounds this particular piece of fall, voodoo magic paired with my well-acknowledged coffee addiction I couldn’t believe I’d never ordered a PSL.  Add in my love of all things basic and I knew I had to try one.  ASAP.  Cameron was there to document the first sip.  Verdict?  (Please don’t kill me all the PSL lovers out there.) Meh.  It was okay but I much prefer my homemade pumpkin creamer 🙂 

If you want a healthy, homemade alternative to the deliciousness of the season give this recipe a try.  I hope you enjoy and happy first day of fall!  I’m very excited to share some seasonly festive content next week.
