Home-Made Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup
Something about Pumpkin Spice Latte screams fall! People go crazy, mad for this Home-Made Pumpkin Spice Syrup & Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe. Fragrant spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves are happily wafting together in this robust pumpkin-flavored syrup. It's got real pumpkin in it, it's easy to make and it tastes so amazing.
- 1/3 cup pumpkin puree fresh or canned
- 1 cup sugar or splenda
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally to keep syrup from burning.
Let mixture cook together like syrup and begins to coat the spoon (for about 10-15 minutes), then remove from heat.
Refrigerate in a heat-proof container.
The syrup will thicken a bit in the refrigerator, but will become syrup again when heated.
To make Pumpkin Spice Latte
Heat 3-4 tablespoons syrup with 2 cups milk in microwave (adjust milk depending on pumpkin flavor desired)
Pour into a blender or whisk until frothy, for about ten seconds (to make it thick and prevent the pumpkin from settling on the bottom).
Pour 1/2 cup of the pumpkin spice mixture into a large mug.
Top it off with strong, hot coffee.
Add some whipped cream, a drizzle of caramel sauce, and a pinch of cinnamon.
Store the rest of the latte mixture in the fridge for up to a week, sealed. Shake before using.
Recipe NotesYou can also use 2 tablespoons syrup + 2-3 tablespoons of heavy cream instead of 1/2 cup of latte if you want another option, cutting down the fat.
Add a couple more tablespoons to the syrup mixture, if you want more pumpkin-y flavor.
If you use the best of spices, you even get more fragrant flavors. Yum!
For more fall Pumpkin Delights!
