There are a lot of recipes available for the Pumpkin Spice Latte that was made famous by a little coffee chain you made of heard of called Starbucks. This seasonal favorite comes back every Fall and for good reason! It’s creamy, flavorful and delicious.
What’s not to love? Well, maybe the artificial ingredients, the cost, and the fact that you have to leave your cozy house on a Sunday morning to get your “fix”!Jump to Recipe
Making a natural Pumpkin Spice Latte
After lots of experimenting, we developed our own recipe by first making an all-purpose Pumpkin Pie Spice. This spice mix can be used all season for pies, bread, scones, and muffins, but we started off by using it in our Pumpkin Spice Syrup. The syrup is easy to make and is honestly just liquid gold! Pour it on pancakes and waffles, or use as a base for a pumpkin glaze on cakes. It makes a fun mixer in a cocktail, as well.
Making your own lattes is easy!
