(photo: loveveggiesandyoga.com)

Around this time of year the coffee loving world goes crazy for the Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte. For years that wasn't available in Poland, and now that it finally is... well it's just too expensive for my liking. This year i found a great solution... make your own Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup! Here is the recipe that i am making and love! (* keep in the fridge)

Pumpkin Spice Syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp pumpkin purée
  • 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon (or 3 cinnamon sticks)
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cloves

For the latte:

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1-2 shots espresso
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp pumpkin spice syrup
  • Whipped cream (optional)

(* because it contains pumpkin puree i recommend keeping it in the fridge... at our house it doesn't stay around longer than a week!)
