Are you a morning person?  Do you jump out of bed as soon as the alarm goes off and start whistling happy tunes?  I wish I did, but I don’t.  The alarm goes off and I pull the covers over my head lingering for at least 20 minutes longer than I should.

You know what gets me out of bed?  The smell of fresh brewed coffee!  See, Alan is the kind of guy that pops out of bed and gets busy with a morning routine.  He feeds all three of our needy little furry love bugs (Abby the canine, and Jem & Scout our felines), and makes coffee before hitting the shower.

Fresh brewed coffee with homemade pumpkin spice coffee creamer is a great way to start the day!

That bold smell of coffee that drifts throughout the house gets me motivated to grab a cup!  After giving up the powdered creamers I always add a little heavy cream, but for the fall I thought I would make homemade pumpkin spice coffee creamer.  I’m in love with the stuff and I have Alan hooked on it too.

The best part of making your own flavored creamer is having complete control of the ingredients that go into the mix.

If you’ve been following The Foodie Affair for awhile, then you know that I cut back on granulated sugar as often as I can, so when I was offered an opportunity to try Whole Earth Sweetener products with zero and lower calorie sweetener blends I couldn’t wait to start sampling.

This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of Whole Earth Sweetener Company though.  I noticed the Nature Sweet® packets at Starbucks near the condiment bar.  Each packet has zero calories per serving and is made with a blend of monk fruit and stevia.  The perfect amount of sweetness without any bitter aftertaste that stevia can leave on its own.

Whole Earth Sweetener Co. products are Non-GMO Verified.

Whole Earth Sweetener Co. has a variety of products like Nature Sweet® packets which are zero calories and Non-GMO.  They also have Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50, Turbinado Raw Cane 50, Baking Blend, and Whole Earth Sweetener Honey 50 that are all Non-GMO Project Verified and 50% fewer calories per serving than their traditional counterparts.

I sweetened the Pumpkin Spice Creamer with just four Nature Sweet® packets, which is perfect for Alan and me.  The packets are convenient to use so feel free to add more sweetener to each cup of coffee if you would like.

With your tasty coffee may I suggest adding Whole Earth Sweetener Honey 50 to toast with peanut butter?  I found that you just need a little (half) as much for the same sweetness as traditional honey and it has 50% fewer calories than traditional honey.  It’s also tastes delicious over plain Greek yogurt.

    I’m definitely going to have to try this sweetner. Stevia does have a bitter taste to me. John loves to flavor his coffee but doesn’t want the extra calories of commercial creamers so I’m definitely going to have to make this!

    We ae huge fans of coffee creamer and try to use only those with low-sugar. Pumpkin and pumpkin spice rank very highly on our list of most-loved fall flavors; can’t wait to try this one!

    I drink LOTS of coffee! And as a special treat I put creamer in sometimes. This is a great way to lower my sugar intake. Thanks for the info – I’ll keep an eye out for it. Oh, an that toast looks amazing!

    Pumpkin spice creamer is one of the few I love, but I don’t usually treat myself. I love that this is lower in sugar and calories! Thank you!
