Pumpkin Spice Syrup

I love this time of year... love the change of colours and the cool crisp air.  Best of all is that it is pumpkin season.  I know that you could have pumpkins all year round as all you have to do is buy a can of pumpkin puree... but pumpkin is the best when fall is in the air.
I also love pumpkin flavour in my tea and coffee.. Nothing beats a Pumpkin Spice Latte or even a Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte..and I have been even drinking more since I made this Pumpkin  Spice Syrup.Lately I have been coming home from work,  making myself a coffee and adding some pumpkin spice syrup , no wonder I don't sleep.

Pumpkin Spice Syrup 

1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup sugar ( I used 1/2 cup honey powder and 1/2 cup Zulka  pure cane sugar)
1 1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp vanilla

Combine ingredients in saucepan.  Bring to boil and continue to cook over medium heat.  Stirring frequently to prevent  the syrup from burning.  Let boil for approximately 10 -15 minutes until mixture becomes thick and coats spoon.  Pour into heat proof container and refrigerate between uses.  Stir or shake before using.

A great book and a great cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte on a crisp fall day ~ Perfection.
To Make a Latte
Mix 2-3 Tablespoons of Pumpkin Spice Syrup into approximately 1/2 cup of milk.  Either place in microwave in microwave safe cup and cook for about a minute or so, or cook on stove until warm.  Whisk until milk is frothy and slowly pour in 1/2 cup of strong coffee or chia and enjoy.  I don't have a milk frother but this would be perfect to make a great latte.  Add whip cream and sprinkle cinnamon and you will have a Pumpkin or Chai Latte that is just as good or better then Starbucks and much cheaper... 

Last Fall I was making my Pumpkin Spice Lattes this way.  Still good but this recipe may have slightly less calories.
