So I wanted to make all these lovely pumpkin recipes for the fall season and an ingredient I needed was pumpkin pie spice!
So off I went to buy some. And lo and behold, none to be found!
Maybe this spice blend is only found in America? I dunno! But if you’re like me and can’t find it in your supermarket, then maybe you just want to make your own!
Or maybe you just have the ingredients on hand so might as well make your own, rather than traipsing off to spend time and money.
And it’s so easy, so why not.
This homemade pumpkin pie spice is a blend of 5 spices. There are heaps of pumpkin pie spice recipes available online and they’re mostly the same, some just add in a little something extra like cardamom and some don’t.
I thought it was fine with just the 5 spices: cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cloves.
Is it weird that pumpkin pie spice doesn’t have any pumpkin in it? I don’t know what I thought, but maybe I thought some dehydrated pumpkin would find its way in there. Like you know celery salt actually has celery in it. But no, pumpkin pie spice just goes ridiculously well WITH pumpkin recipes, it doesn’t actually contain any pumpkin.
Simply measure out your spices, mix them together and store in an airtight jar and you’ll have pumpkin pie spice for whenever you require it. Like for making that awesome pumpkin pie recipe for Thanksgiving!
Other recipes you can use your homemade pumpkin pie spice in are some delicious vegan pumpkin cupcakes, vegan pumpkin muffins, vegan pumpkin ice cream, a pumpkin pie smoothie or some vegan pumpkin fudge!
