Easy Pumpkin Spice Syrup

Easy Pumpkin Spice Syrup

Ready to start making your own easy pumpkin spice syrup?

The world is crazy for Pumpkin Spice Lattes so I started researching the ingredients to make them at home. Sometimes that craving hits but you just don’t want to get out of your pajamas!

I love homemade cappuccinos and lattes because they are so easy and economical to make in your own kitchen. Pumpkin Spice Lattes are super simple too after you make this syrup.

Making your own is a healthier option than store-bought brands. There are no artificial ingredients in this 5 ingredient syrup, whereas commercial products have high fructose corn syrup as the main ingredient.

Ingredients for Pumpkin Spice Syrup:

  • Brown Sugar
  • Pumpkin Puree (be sure to use puree, not pumpkin pie mix)
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Water
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice – homemade (see below) or purchase a good quality store version.

I like to make my own Pumpkin Pie Spice blend every Fall. It’s easy with just 6 spices blended together that you likely have on hand. It’s like Fall in a jar!

How to make Pumpkin Spice Syrup:

This recipe could not be easier to put together because it takes just 5 minutes to gather the ingredients and 5 minutes to cook.

  • Gather all ingredients and add everything (except vanilla) to a medium saucepan
  • Bring to a quick boil and simmer over medium heat for 4 minutes
  • Stir until all of the brown sugar is dissolved
  • Add vanilla and whisk well, simmering for an additional 1 minute
  • Remove from the heat and cool for 5 minutes
  • Whisk again and strain to remove any solids
  • Cool completely and store in a glass jar, refrigerated, for up to 2 months

Combine all ingredients together (except vanilla) and cook

Strain the solids after cooking the syrup

Making a thicker Syrup:

If you want a thicker syrup to use for pancakes, waffles or french toast just return to a clean pan, heat, and reduce down to the desired thickness

Using Pumpkin Spice Syrup in recipes:

The possibilities are endless but here are some of my favorite ways to use this syrup:

This syrup would make an excellent little gift for a pumpkin loving friend, in a small bottle, with a ribbon.

Once cooked and cooled you can keep the syrup in the refrigerator, sealed in a glass jar, for at least 2 months.
