“And all at once Summer collapsed into Fall.” – Oscar Wilde
Happy October, everyone!
One thing at the top of everyone’s Autumn Bucket List is to enjoy some of that Pumpkin Spice!
Last year I reviewed Califia Pumpkin Spice Latte Cold Brew Coffee with Almond Milk and Silk Pumpkin Spice Almond Creamer. Both are excellent products – and both are back in stores again! I thought the Califia Pumpkin Spice Latte tasted best icy cold. The Silk Pumpkin Spice Almond Creamer was great in hot coffee (of course), but was a little on the sweet side for me.
Which is why I’m so excited about this new product – Califia Farms Pumpkin Spice No Sugar Added Better Half – Coconut Cream and Almond Milk.
It is super-creamy due to the blend of coconut cream and almond milk (yet not too coconut-y tasting).
It is slightly sweet due to the coconut, but there’s no added sugar. Perfect if, like me, you don’t like your coffee too sweet. (This also means less calories – 15 calories per TWO tablespoons, versus 25 calories per ONE tablespoon of the Silk creamer. Or – 15 verus 50 calories for the same amount!)
The ginger and cinnamon are perfectly balanced. And yes, there is real pumpkin puree! (Third ingredient.)
Califia gave it a nice little boost of calcium too – 4% DV in one serving of 2 tablespoons.
Finally, it does really well in coffee – it doesn’t curdle, clot or separate. It also works in hot tea!
It retails for about $4.99.
Here’s the nutrition info.
And the ingredients.
Disclaimer: This is not a paid opinion piece, nor has Califia Farms ever contacted me for reviews. I purchased this in a store, myself, because I was intrigued.
Where can I purchase?
Hi, Tammy! I’m not sure where you’re located, but in Charlotte I found it at Harris Teeter (in special display end cases) and I’ve also seen it in Whole Foods. Friends have told me they’ve bought it from Thrive.
Where did you get the cool coffee cup?
Hi, Lyn! I purchased the cup at Homegoods about two years ago. They usually have a wide varierty of cute Autumn/Halloween dishes that you can buy in singles.
