It’s day three of Pumpkin Week here at That Oven Feelin’ and I thought about mixing it up a bit with a seasonal latte recipe. Instead of buying pumpkin syrup, you can make your own!
Pumpkin spice lattes are extremely popular during the fall season and I can understand why. They are sweet, a little spicy, but can make you go broke if you drink as much coffee as I do. The cost of daily pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks add up, so why not find a more affordable alternative?
The solution: Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup.
This syrup keeps for a few weeks in the refrigerator, but I doubt that it will last that long. Just mix about 1/2 tablespoon to a full tablespoon into a cup of coffee with some milk, and you have a perfect homemade latte! Or for a little extra indulgence, top with whipped cream. Yum!

- 2 tbs pumpkin puree
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ tsp vanilla
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- ¼ tsp ground cloves
- Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add all of the ingredients to the saucepan and stir to combine. Continue cooking the mixture for 10 to 15 minutes, until it begins to thicken and will coat a spoon.
- Once thickened, remove from heat. Refrigerate syrup for future use, just heat before adding to coffee.
