Allspice isn’t something I normally keep on hand. When a recipe calls for it, I mix up this quick homemade allspice alternative, instead!
Allspice is one of those spices that I use so infrequently that it doesn’t really make sense for me to keep it on hand. Instead, I make my own allspice alternative! This homemade “allspice” works in recipes just as well as the real thing. It’s easy to mix up in a matter of minutes!

Here are some other homemade spice and herb mixes you might enjoy:
All Purpose Seasoning for Meat and Veggies

This mix would be great in pies or chai, anywhere else it calls for pumpkin pie spice! Great combo.
You probably already know this… BUT, allspice isn’t a blend of spices, it is one spice, and a wonderful one to keep around. The flavor is unmatchable. Plus it’s great for improving blood flow, especially blood flow to the pelvic region-boosts fertility!
Thanks for the info on allspice. I knew it was a single spice, but I had no idea how many wonderful benefits were in it! Hmmmm….I may have to buy it after all…and only use my alternative in a real pinch. 🙂
looks easy enough, thanks for sharing 🙂
I buy the organic powder by the lb and put it in my health drink everyday…not for its good taste, but for all its wonderful health benefits. I also add lots of cinnamon.
Just be careful with too much cinnamon. Make sure it is true cinnamon and not cassia cinnamon if you are consuming large amount regularly. Cassia cinnamon, which makes up most cinnamon because it is more affordable that true cinnamon, contains coumarin which is actually toxic. True cinnamon has it too, but in much smaller doses. Truthfully I don’t use true cinnamon because I don’t do the shopping, but just keep this in mind if you start using cinnamon on a regular basis and in large amounts.
Why don’t you buy whole allspice berries and grate them? The taste is different from your combination and still would be healthy.
This is just for when people are in a pinch (i.e. in the middle of cooking and realize they are out of it! lol!).
Awesome information. Thank you. God Bless You !!!
My wife is deathly allergic to cinnamon. Is there an allspice substitute that does not include cinnamon?
My husband is as well, we use allspice instead of cinnamon and it has helped a lot! But the ratio is 1/4 part allspice instead of 1 part cinnamon. So if it calls for 1 tsp cinnamon you are supposed to only use 1/4 tsp allspice. Hope this helps 🙂
