Dairy Free Pumpkin Spice Creamer

I have a confession. I love coffee. Yes, you read that right. Coffee! I try not to drink it everyday because I don’t feel well when I do. Now that the weather is cool I find myself needing a cup everyday. Of course, I always add cream, virgin coconut oil and honey (sometimes coconut sugar) to my coffee. It’s like having dessert first thing in the morning!

The last few weeks I’ve been enjoying pumpkin spice coffee and it is delicious! I’ve made this with raw milk and coconut milk and I’ve decided coconut milk is the winner. I tell myself that I’m burning a bunch of fat with every sip (because coconut oil speeds up your metabolism). 😉

Now I have a question for all you coffee lovers out there.

Do you have any recommendations for an alternative to coffee? Other than decaf. I’ve tried Teeccino, which is okay, but I’m looking for something closer to real coffee. Let me know in the comments if you have any recommendations! Thanks 🙂

    Have you tried not putting anything in your coffee? Maybe it is not the coffee that makes you feel sick but all the things you put in combining with it. Maybe try just a little butter and a quick blend to make it creamy. Perhaps your body doesn’t like liquid sweet in the morning. Mine doesn’t.

    Tiffany,

    E.O. is right, if you want to change to a different, more natural type of “coffee”, take a break from the real stuff first and then start something new. I drink Pero, which is a chickory/barley blend, or dandelion coffee. Add your yummy little creamer recipe here and it’s an excellent and nutritious drink. Thanks for sharing this with us!

    If you’re looking for a coffee that is good try Longevity Coffee. Health Guru David Wolfe is the one we heard about it from. Longevity Coffee is alkaline, yes, alkaline unlike regular coffee that is acidic. I drink the Longevity some mornings just for a wee boost and there’s no crash with this coffee. I can’t drink regular coffee it really bothers my digestion. I’m going to make your Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer at Thanksgiving and add it to my Longevity Coffee. You can google this, it’s from Longevity Warehouse. Mind you the coffee is $20.00 a pound but it’s worth it if you use it occasionally.

    I use roasted chicory root with just a tiny bit of coffee in it for the flavor. So like 1Tablespoon to 1/2 tsp.

    The chicory root offers an amazing bonus in that it has Inulin which is like a pre-biotic. It feeds the probiotics and allows for a more stable gut environment. Has helped me tremendously with getting over candida!!!

    In the south, we drink chicory. During the slave era, coffee was not available to the workers but chicory was a wild root that when roasted and ground tasted very much like coffee. Ironically, it became a favorite with the white population as well. During the war, chicory was also used to make coffee go further. Now you know

          The cans of coconut milk she suggests are 13.5 ounces. You’re only using 1 whole can for the recipe, and then the fat on the top from the 2nd can. I’m not sure how many ounces the cream from the 2nd can is..so I’m not sure how much raw cream you’d need.. I’d try around 14 oz maybe (That’s 1 and 3/4 cup).

      I plan to make this with raw milk and raw cream. I freeze raw milk all the time, so any beyond what I think I can use within a week I will freeze. I would think you could freeze coconut milk and coconut cream also. I buy one pint and half pint milk bottles and freeze in those, with at least 1/2 – 3/4 inch headspace. I just take a bottle out of the freezer about 2 days before I plan to use it and put it in the refrigerator. It’s ready when I am. That way, not a DROP of my precious (and expensive!) raw milk goes to waste. I would think the experiment with coconut milk would be worth it. Oh — I see now your inquiry was 11 months ago. Presume you already have the answer to your question. Well, maybe someone else will benefit from my information. Cheers!

    Research swiss water decaf….it is truly a naturally decaffeinated coffee. Also essential eating author discussed coffee that is cold brewed. It digests differently and should not have the side effects that many people have with regular coffee. I personally am not a die hard coffee drinker but I have tried both things mentioned above and was satisfied, although I now am off coffee altogether.

    I gave up coffee several months ago and spent a lot of time searching for something to replace the coffee with. The only thing that gave me nearly the same sense of satisfaction in the morning was milk heated on the stove with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, vanilla and honey in it, but then I had to give that up too because the milk was causing me issues (we can’t get raw milk up here in Canuckistan). 🙁

    I wonder if it’s mold in the particular coffee beans you are using that is causing the issue..? I came across this guy who calls himself the Bulletproof Exec (I have absolutely no affiliation with this guy or his products, aside to say I agree with some of the things he has to say and others, not so much. lol), who talked about what he called (of course) Bulletproof Coffee. He sells his own brand of coffee, but he also details specific things you should look for if you’re sourcing your own coffee. IIRC, he states that 100% arabica, high-altitude grown, wet-processed beans are the least likely to have mold on them, and it’s this mold that causes a lot of people issues. Then again, some people just have issues with coffee, period, so your mileage may vary on this… I found when I tracked down some Mexican beans that had the qualities he mentioned, I did feel differently when drinking that coffee than when I’d been drinking the crap from the grocery store. He also suggests blenderizing some grassfed butter into your coffee also, which I have been doing, and it’s been surprisingly delicious – never thought I’d like coffee without any sweetener, but the butter somehow takes the bitter edge off the coffee, go figure. 🙂 That said, having found your recipe above, I will be very happy to try it since a) I love coconut milk, and b) it fits right in with the Primal diet we’ve switched to in our house. Yay!

    Why do you want an alternative to coffee? That bs about coffee being bad for you was debunked years ago. It’s GOOD for you.
    @ 3 cups a day. It’s full if antioxidants and other good stuff.
    Organic free trade is best. Cow milk makes me nauseous, soy is GMO, so I use rice milk, cinnamon and sometimes dark chocolate which is ALSO good for you! I’m looking forward to the pumpkin flavoring.

    Yum! This looks awesome!! My kids have a dairy allergy so we don’t keep it in the house. I normally make cashew and almond milk for my decaf coffee but I’ve been dreaming of my very own pumpkin spice latte 🙂 Can’t wait to try this! Oh, and I recommend dandy blend for a coffee alternative.

    Roasted dandelion root! It’s a great substitute for coffee–toasty, rich, and full bodied–and is a great liver cleanser as well.

    I didn’t care for Teeccino either . The best substitute I have found for coffee is Cafe Du monde one, which has chicory in it which reduces the negative effects of coffee. Hope that helps. This tastes better with coconut milk in it though. Not coffee free but better than drinking just coffee 🙂

      I have a good alternative to coffee. It also has Chicory in it. It is called Pero. It is very close to tasting like coffee and it is totally good for you with no negative effects. I love it and hope you do too. : )

    Can’t wait to try this recipe! As far as coffee goes, there really is nothing (to me) that tastes like real coffee. 🙁

    I just discovered (but haven’t tried it yet) a special single source organic coffee that is only treated with water, instead of being left to mildew and stripped with chemicals. http://www.bulletproofexec.com/coffee/ Looking forward to treating my husband and I to it soon!

    Coincidentally, there is this coffee recipe called “Bulletproof Coffee” and one variation is to make it with grass fed butter and coconut oil. Oh my. It is like THEE most divine coffee I have ever had. Creamy, rich, YUM!

    I really like Dandy Blend that you can buy online at their website. I use cream or coconut cream in it. When I have regular coffee, I make sure that it’s organic and buy my cream from a farmer.

    I used to use Pero, but it’s not low carb. Now I’ve bought organic coffee, to try to be healthier and still have a cup of coffee a day.

    Don’t give up coffee! Just switch to a HEALTHY coffee! I used to have health issues related to coffee until I took the 30-day challenge and tried this coffee exclusively. Health issues are gone and I feel great! Feel free to go to my website and read the testimonials and try some for yourself.

    I had to give up coffee this year because it was making me feel so bad! I REALLY miss it, especially when my husband brews some at home. But I feel so much better, so its worth it! I too have tried to satisfied with Teeccino, but I find I never finish my cup (guess its just not close enough to coffee). I recently found a naturally decaffinated black tea by Stash called Chocolate Hazelnut and I’m really enjoying it. Even though its a tea, I think it comes closer to coffee than Teeccino. Now I just have to research about the “naturally decaffinated” process and see if its something I really want to be drinking.

    Question: can I use lite coconut milk?? Been looking for something like this!!
    I was very addicted to Frappuccino’s (I know…bad!) But! the thing that got me off them was white tea. I steep it and drink it just like coffee…with the creamer and all. Love it! Much healthier 🙂

    I drink Mate Chocolatte (http://guayaki.com/product/51/Mate-Chocolatte.html) once in awhile as a coffee substitute. It’s organic, free trade, gluten free & super yummy.

    This looks amazingly delicious! Have GOT to try this sometime soon!

    Is there a place to buy just the coconut cream/fat? I go through so many cans of coconut milk and fat! And if I want to just make coconut whipped cream?….Oi.

      Thanks for the recipe. Yum, yum! As with all substitutes, I find not eating or drinking the item your trying to mock for a considerable time makes the gluten-free bread, the meat-analog, dairy or coffee substitutes taste a whole lot better when it has been a while since you last ate the item your trying to substitute. I try to go a good month or more with out the beloved item before switching to a substitute for it and find my taste buds adapt and transition to the new item more readily. Chai Tea is a good coffee substitute as it tastes wonderful warm with cream and stevia in it but it already has flavoring so something like this recipe wouldn’t work well with it. Dandelion root tea is one you can grow/grind yourself or buy prepackaged which doesn’t have a lot of flavor that can easily take the flavor of a creamer like this recipe.
