Author: Kim Lange


  • 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.


You 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!
