I don’t know about mornings in your household, but weekday mornings at ours tend to be a bit of a whirlwind. I’m right behind the thought that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but honestly, getting my two pre-schoolers and myself out the door in a presentable state is often enough of a challenge.

Pumpkin Pie Spiced Creamer--dairy and sugar free! Dairy-free coffee (and coffee substitute) lovers celebrate! Makes a great dessert or oatmeal drizzle too!

{Pumpkin Spice Creamer–yummo!  Tiffany is a new contributing writer on my blog.  This recipe for a non-dairy creamer is something that I have been working on on-and-off for awhile now, so I welcomed the chance to bring it to you now! Tiffany says it is soooo good that you won’t be able to not eat it all :).}

Those folks who don’t eat dairy, for whatever reason, must often feel left out of the pumpkin-filled fall festivities.

  • No pumpkin ice cream.
  • No traditional pumpkin pie.
  • No pumpkin pie spiced creamer.

My heart truly aches for you no-dairy-allowed-pumpkin-lovers. I adore the big orange squash too, and could easily keep Starbucks in the PSL business beyond November if they only gave me the chance.
