How To Make Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice
This fall favorite is naturally vegan and plant-based. It is simple and easy to make.
Each year before I begin my pumpkin baking journey, I like to whip up a batch of homemade pumpkin pie spice. It is made using only four ingredients you probably already have in your cupboard or pantry and takes less than 5 minutes to make.
If you are a fan of all things pumpkin like myself, then you will want to have this Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice on hand.
You can use your homemade pumpkin pie spice blend to flavor your vegan and plant-based dishes including pumpkin pie, lattes, smoothies, pumpkin energy balls, soups, and even sprinkled on your roasted veggies including acorn squash.
Making your own homemade pumpkin spice not only saves you time, it can be more cost effective then buying it in the store. It is also a great idea to make your own that way you can control the ratio of ingredients.
Pumpkin Pie Spice Ingredients
Making your own homemade pumpkin spice is as simple as blending together these four ingredients:
Cinnamon- Cinnamon is a highly delicious spice. Cinnamons distinct flavor is loaded with antioxidants and not only has great ant inflammatory properties, it adds great flavors to pancake and waffle mixes, coffee, and granola.
There are two types of cinnamon.
Ceylon– or also known as “true” cinnamon and
Cassia– or the cinnamon that is most commonly used today and what people refer to as cinnamon.
Ginger- Ginger is one of my new favorite spices. It is among one of the healthiest and most delicious spices out there. It goes great with roasted carrots and can be found as ginger root or in ground form.
Nutmeg– Nutmeg has a warm and slightly nutty flavor, often used in desserts and drinks. Another one of my favorite spices. I have to admit, I love making cauliflower alfredo and sprinkling a little nutmeg as a garnish. Its flavor adds a little something extra to the dish.
Cloves: Cloves can be found both in whole and ground. Cloves are a sweet and aromatic spice that is one of the main ingredients in gingerbread cookies. It is a versatile spice you can use also to season hot beverages and fall dishes.
