Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup
Latte season is right around the corner. My favorite fall latte is, you guessed it, the pumpkin spice latte. It’s so rich, creamy, and full of warm fall spices–I can’t get enough of them during the cooler months.
Why spend close to five dollars for a latte at your local coffee shop when you can make your own at home for pennies. This homemade pumpkin spice syrup will provide you with cup after cup of homemade coffee goodness.
This syrup only takes a total of 12 minutes to make from start to finish, and you can find most–if not all–the ingredients in your pantry.
I used a combination of brown sugar and granulated sugar to make the syrup. I love the caramel notes that the brown sugar adds.
Just about every fall spice you can think of goes into this syrup: cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg. The smell that fills your kitchen as the syrup simmers is amazing.
Let’s not forget about the star of the show here: the pumpkin! It’s what we all want, love, and crave this time of year. A 1/4 cup gets swirled in, adding a rich, creamy texture to the syrup…not to mention the vibrant burnt orange hue.
This syrup can be used for more than just cawfee. Add it to maple syrup to jazz up your pancakes. Swirl it in tea. Drizzle it over vanilla ice cream. Stir it in your morning oatmeal. Spoon it over some roasted figs.
Add instant fall with every spoonful.
