{Clean Eating Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup}

Pumpkin Spice Lattes are my favorite hot drink from Starbucks! I mean who doesn't love pumpkin spice anything!! The only problem with the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes are a.) they are expensive, b.) I don't live super close to a Starbucks and c.) who knows what all is in that syrup they use!! The only way I can control what I put in my body and have it any time I want is to make up my own syrup!! So that is just what I did!!



Clean Eating Pumpkin Spice Latte

adapted from: Annies Eats
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups Sucanat (any organic, unprocessed sugar will do)
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin spice 
  • 3 tbsp. pumpkin puree
Combine water and Sucanat in small sauce pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until sucanat is dissolved. Add cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin puree and stir to combine. Let simmer for about 5 minutes and then remove from heat. Let completely cool. Strain the syrup through a fine mesh strainer (if desired). This will remove the larger spice particles from the syrup. Place in container or jar with lid. Refrigerate.
