Why Make Your Own Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer?
When you have a yen for creamy pumpkin spice coffee you can make it at home with just a few ingredients. No need for a trip to starbucks or the gorcery store. PLUS, you can have your pumpkin spiced coffee clear through the winter.
Commercial Creamer Facts:
It’s so very easy to grab a pumpkin coffee creamer when you’re at Starbucks or in the grocery store. But it is a better idea to make your own pumpkin spice creamer when you can.
Commercial Pumpkin Spice Creamer Season:
Your Fall season may not line up with when the stores decide to carry, or discontinue seasonal items like specialty creamers. If your in an area where summer stays late into the Fall months you may miss it altogether since it’s kinda wierd to be wearing shorts and halter tops in 90 degree weather while your sipping a pumpkin coffee drink.
When Does Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer come out for the Fall season?
Actually, starbucks and the other pumpkin coffee creamers usually come out around the end of August. Maybe a bit earlier than most of us want it. And…Starbucks stop serving their pumpkin spice latte November 1. Now I call that downright stingy. I want pumpkin at LEAST until Thanksgiving. So homemade it is. And Yummm.
Does Coffee Mate Have Pumpkin Spice?
Yes it does. You can buy it in almost any grocery when it’s stocked for the season. Does Coffee mate Pumpkin spice creamer need to be refrigerated? The large liquid coffee mate pumpkin spice creamers can sit out for up to two hours on the counter at room temperature, and possibly longer, and still be safe to drink. However, to maintain its flavor and fresh taste store it in the fridge after every use. It should last about 2 weeks or until the expiration date on its container.
Different rules for the singles. The single serving pumpkin creamers do not require refrigeration and have a long shelf life of up to nine months according to the Nestle company. This is due to the unique way single serving coffee creamers are manufactured.
Is Coffee Mate Vegan Friendly? No. Like most commercial coffee creamers, Coffee-Mate’s regular creamers contain either sodium caseinate or micellar casein. Both are milk derivatives that make them non-dairy but not dairy-free.
There are several commercially made vegan coffee creamers, Steph sunshine has more on this. Coffee mate is not a good vegan choice. Look for Silk, Chobani, Nutpods, Planet Oat and other specialty brands for vegan creamers. There are some good choices. but we offer you a vegan option further down this post too. Give it a try!
What are the ingredients in Coffee-Mate pumpkin? Want more reasons to make your own coffee creamer? Look at the ingredients list on coffee mate pumpkin creamer:
Water, Sugar, Vegetable Oil (High Oleic Soybean And/or High Oleic Canola), And Less Than 2% Of Micellar Casein (a Milk Derivative) (Not A Source Of Lactose), Natural And Artificial Flavor, Mono- And Diglycerides, Dipotassium Phosphate, Cellulose Gel, Cellulose Gum, Carrageenan.
Your rule of thumb for label reading is: If you cannot understand the ingredients you probably should not be consuming them. Even an indulgence like coffee creamer can be so much better and more wholesome when you make it at home. And where is the pumpkin in this creamer? Its just chemical flavoring.
Does Starbucks have pumpkin creamer? It does. Stabucks coffee creamer ingredients are some better than coffee mate with mostly real ingredients.
Here are the ingredients for Starbucks pumpkin coffee creamer: Nonfat milk, sugar, heavy cream, buttermilk, vegetable oil (high oleic soybean oil), natural flavor, gellan gum. Contains: Milk.
We think our recipe is better with better ingredients and it will last up to two weeks in the fridge when properly stored. You deserve the best. Make your own. 🙂
