It has simple ingredients that are healthier than the store-bought brands and is a great low-fat option if you are looking for a healthy alternative from the local coffee shop.

Before I lost 125 pounds  I would drink more creamer than coffee. Actually, the coffee was just the best way to get the flavored creamer into my system. I loved all of the creamers that were for the holiday season, like eggnog, sugar cookie, and of course, gingerbread. Now that I pay attention to what I put into my body, I know the chemicals in those creamers are terrible, so I decided to make my homemade gingerbread creamer.

Ingredients

Copycat Starbucks Gingerbread Syrup recipe ingredients

  • Maple Syrup – go for the real stuff and not the pancake syrup.
  • Molasses – I like to use blackstrap molasses for a deep rich flavor.
  • Vanilla extract – get the best your budget will allow.
  • Cinnamon – get the best your budget will allow.
  • Cloves – just a pinch because they are potent.
  • Nutmeg – grate your own for the ultimate flavor.
  • Ginger – a pinch of ground ginger is the star of this syrup.
  • Non-dairy milk – pick your milk of choice -cashew milk, coconut milk, soy milk, oat milk, or almond milk – they are all delicious.

Pro-Tip – You can opt to use 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice instead of the spice mixture above.

How to Make This Gingerbread Coffee Creamer Recipe

In a small saucepan, over medium heat, combine all of the ingredients and whisk together.

Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, then quickly lower the heat to a simmer over medium-low. Simmer for 5 minutes or until the creamer thickens.

Allow it to cool, store it in an airtight container, and keep it refrigerated.  Shake before using. The creamer should last as long as the best-by date of the non-dairy milk you used. Always trust your senses and discard the creamer if you notice any signs of spoilage. Click here for more info about food safety.
