With the fun of Fall Cookie Week happening all last week on the blog, I’m a bit behind in updating you with IBC happenings and other fun projects I’ve been working on. My hope is to get you completely caught up this week. Let’s start with this Homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer.
As you know, I’ve been super fortunate to work with HomeGoods for most of this year. Twice a month I share ideas, projects, or recipes on their Design Happy blog. (You can find all of my posts here.) It’s an exciting space where I get to hang out with a great group of bloggers. Plus, it gives me another reason to shop at HomeGoods, and I’ll take any excuse to shop, right?
For my most recent post, I decided to make Homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer. Those of you who know me well know that one of my favorite things about fall is the chance to eat everything and anything that’s pumpkin flavored. That includes pumpkin donuts, pumpkin cinnamon rolls, a pumpkin pie martini, and even pumpkin mac and cheese!
Of course, if there was a way for me to include pumpkin in the first hours of my day, I’d be on board immediately. Well, there is: Homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer.
Recently, I’ve become a big fan of the natural-type of coffee creamers. My favorite is Vanilla Natural Bliss from Coffee-mate. These creamers only use natural ingredients like milk, cream, and sugar rather than all of the weird stuff that goes into traditional store-bought coffee creamers. Unfortunately, these natural creamers aren’t available in seasonal flavors. Whomp. Whomp.
My solution? Make my own. And that’s exactly what I did. Because I found some gorgeous gold coffee mugs at HomeGoods, I decided to share my recipe for Homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer in a post on HomeGoods Design Happy Blog. If you’re interested in getting that recipe and learning how to make the creamer yourself, click here.
However, before you leave, I have one other quick recommendation. If you’re a fan of flavored coffee and happen to be in HomeGoods (or T.J. Maxx), keep your eye out for this Fall in Love Ground Coffee in Vanilla Nut Cream flavor. I think it’s only $6 a bag, and it’s so seasonally delicious. Plus, it makes you’re house smell amazing. Just an extra little tip for my fellow coffee lovers.
I love it so much that I’m hoarding 12 bags in hopes that amount will get me through the winter. Fingers crossed.
