Pumpkin Spice Latte- A sure sign it’s fall!

Well, kicking and screaming, summer has ended! And I can honestly say I’m embracing fall (it is truly my FAVORITE season-just not a fan of the season it leads too 😉). With the school year starting for Ms. L and already a handful of cooler mornings (rushing in the frenzy of what pants/long sleeves fit the girls), it really feels like autumn!


As promised, I found and have made a Starbucks Copycat Pumpkin. Spiced. Latte! Yes, nothing says fall like a PSL in my book! And friends, I have yet to buy one from sbucks!!

Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe
4 oz Espresso or strongly brewed Coffee
1 cup steamed milk
2 TB Pumpkin Syrup (recipe below)

Pumpkin Syrup
1 1/2 c water
1 1-2 c super fine sugar ( I just used food processor)
4 cinnamon sticks
2 heaping TB pumpkin purée
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp nutmeg


Heat water and sugar over medium-high heat until sugar is dissolved. Stir frequently. Add in all the spices and pumpkin purée. Simmer for 8 minutes, stirring frequently.

Remove from heat and strain using a mesh strainer. Once liquid has cooled
Place in an airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to one month.


Once your syrup has been made pour two tablespoons into the bottom of your mug. Pour espresso on top and stir. Froth milk and pour over your espresso. Sprinkle a little nutmeg on top and there ya go! ( you could also add whip cream).


This recipe will not only save you a lot of $$$ you’d otherwise be throwing away at Starbucks, it also isn’t filled with all the yucky mystery ingredients the other PSLs have in them! Enjoy this sure sign of fall.
