Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

This is one of the ‘bucks’ most popular drink offerings. The recent “there’s no pumpkin in my latte” controversy was short lived, and fans flocked for a gulp of the fall-friendly PSL as early as August. Make your own at home with some pumpkin pie spice and fortified pumpkin simple syrup that will last in the fridge for three weeks.

Ingredients

For Pumpkin Spice Latte

  • 2 Cups milk
  • 1 Teaspoon pumpkin pie syrup
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
  • ½ Teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, plus more to garnish
  • 1 to 2 shots espresso, or ½ cup of strong black coffee
  • Whipped cream, to garnish

For Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup

  • 1½ Cup sugar
  • 1½ Cup water
  • 3 Tablespoons canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1½ to 2 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

Directions

For Pumpkin Spice Latte

In a saucepan, whisk together milk, pumpkin, and sugar and cook on medium heat, stirring, until steaming. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and spice, and whisk well until slightly frothy. You can use a blender if you prefer.

Add mixture to a mug and top with coffee. Garnish with whipped cream and sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.

For Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup

In 2-quart saucepan, stir together sugar and water. Cook until sugar is dissolved (do not boil).

Beat in pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice with whisk. Cook (do not boil) 5 minutes longer.

Remove from heat. Cool at least 30 minutes. Pour syrup into bottle, jar or storage container. Store in refrigerator for up to two weeks. Makes 24 servings.
