Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix Recipe

If youโ€™re all in on the anti-inflammatory diet, and itโ€™s finally fall, then Pumpkin Spice Mix definitely needs to be one of your pantry staples.

Not only is it delicious, but itโ€™s also made of super anti-inflammatory ingredients.

So, what happens regularly around our house is that Iโ€™m looking for my spice mix, andโ€ฆ. Itโ€™s been all used up by my kids, and they also conveniently forget to tell me weโ€™re out of it.

So I started keeping spice mix recipes so I can make my own any time that happens.

Hereโ€™s how to make your own pumpkin spice mix to keep in your pantry.

Our ingredients are :

  • Ground cinnamon
  • Ground ginger
  • Ground nutmeg
  • Ground cloves
  • Ground allspice
  • And our last surprise ingredient is a pinch of ground black pepper.

The reason I love adding in ground black pepper is that all the other spices already have mega anti-inflammatory properties, but black pepper has a compound in it that boosts absorption of the nutrients in the other ingredients.

Now when Iโ€™m making spice mixes, I like to just use a measuring cup that has a spout like this one so I can pour it into the container without a funnel.

So I add all the spices into the measuring cup, no special order, then stir really well. You want to make sure to get everything mixed really really well, then pour into your storage container.
