It’s that time of year. You see it everywhere already “PSL” Pumpkin Spice Latte. Starbucks brought it out even earlier this year due to its popularity. I love it and have bought me a few. There is a video going around thou that shows how many chemicals and crap that they really put in it.
So I’m all into making my own.
♥ It’s cheaper
♥ You know what ingredients are going in it
♥ You can make it for gifts 🙂
I will give you the recipe for the Pumpkin Spice Syrup then the recipe for the Pumpkin Spice Latte
Pumpkin Spice Syrup Ingredients:
♦ 1 cup water
♦ 2/3 cup brown sugar (you can use white sugar, honey,maple syrup)
♦ 1/3 cup pumpkin puree (canned pie mix)
♦ 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
♦ 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions: Whisk together water, brown sugar, pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice together in a small saucepan over medium high hear. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 3-4 minutes until slightly thickened. Stir in vanilla extract, and remove from heat. Use immediately, or cool and refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 1 week.
Now you have your syrup, onto your Latte

I have already had my first one for the year
- Brown sugar is the choice of sweetener because it tastes most like the traditional coffee shop version. Experiment with other kinds if you prefer.
- What a great hostess gift this will make for your PSL lover. Enjoy!
