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.
