Drop that phone, we’re not ordering out – we’re grabbing a handful of ingredients out of the pantry and fridge and making it happen in our own kitchens!
Honestly, have you ever read most of the labels on store-bought coffee creamers? I’m not a fan of artificial flavors if I can avoid them, and those bottles are chock full of them! I promise after you try this homemade pumpkin spice coffee creamer, you’ll not only feel better about your java choices, you’ll be able to drink your PSLs all year long!
Since we’re all feeling good about our creamer, why don’t we chat about our coffee choice as well?
As a rule, I am incredibly brand loyal when it comes to food. When I fall in love with a product, I stick with it and figure out all kinds of ways to use it; I love finding versatility.
That said, by being a brand loyalist some might think that I’m a food snob…which isn’t that far from the truth. I like what I like, but that doesn’t mean I’m not willing to try other things!
Coffee falls into that category – I have my favorite, but when a reinvented brand like NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® piqued my curiosity, I knew had to give it a go.
My Nana was a big time coffee drinker, and she often had a jar of NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® in the cupboard. Of course, I had no interest in sharing a mug with her at that point in my life, but I think if she were alive now, she would definitely appreciate how far their flavors have come.
Instead of the old-timey plastic canisters of Nana’s day, they’ve switched over to classy glass jars to lock in the flavors of their responsibly sourced, roasted, brewed, flash frozen beans. So not only has their quality improved, they look super snazzy on the shelf!
Everyone knows that people shop with their eyes, first.
I’m not at all an instant coffee drinker. I love my coffee maker so much, I’ll be late to work just to have a cup on the way. My day just cannot start without it.
The convenience of both the NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® 8-ounce stick packs and the 7oz. jars were the biggest draw for me, since popping a mug of water into the microwave while I get ready to start my day is something I can totally do while half asleep.
So, I tucked my normal brand of coffee away for the week and switched over to NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® completely, taking on their challenge.
Some days I’d drink it hot, or poured over ice, but I also used the beautiful jar of NESCAFÉ® Taster’s Choice® House Blend and made up a more time-consuming Vanilla Coconut Licuado (a Latin American smoothie of sorts) on my days off that I am now totally obsessed with (and can’t wait to share with you all in a few weeks!)
With 6 varieties of roasts and flavors from 100% Colombian to French Roast to Hazelnut, there is a coffee for everyone. It is truly a well-crafted coffee made simple! Aaaaand also a perfect vehicle for this splendidly easy, 5-ingredient pumpkin spice coffee creamer.
