Super Simple Pumpkin Spice Coffee Syrup

Pumpkin Spice Syrup Recipe

One of the things that marks the start of fall these days seems to be the introduction of the Pumpkin Spice Latte. It has always been a drink I have enjoyed, but now, as I try to eat cleaner and in a more natural way, I find myself a bit turned off by the fairly questionable ingredients in the PSL offered by the major coffee chains.

With this in mind, I set off to create my own pumpkin spice coffee syrup with two requirements: 1. It had to be clean and based in real food. 2. It had to be super simple.  And, you know what, after a few tries I think I got it right.

So here you go – my Super Simple Pumpkin Spice Coffee Syrup. It has just two steps, only 5 real ingredients and is awesome in coffee of any kind. The best part – no caramel color, fake sugars or chemicals!

Super Simple Pumpkin Spice Coffee Syrup Recipe

Ingredients:

Pumpkin Spice Syrup Recipe1/2 cup water
1/4 cup honey (raw, local honey is best)
1/4 cup real maple syrup (no plastic bottle stuff please)
3/4 teaspoon organic pumpkin spice (organic is best because the spices are not coated with anything and mix into the syrup better)
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin

Directions:

Put water in a small sauce pan on the stove over medium heat.  Whisk in the pumpkin spice, pumpkin, maple syrup and honey. (Tip: measure out your maple syrup first in a liquid measuring cup, then use that same cup to measure out the honey – the coating of the maple syrup in the cup keeps the honey from sticking).

Whisk the syrup until it comes up to a very slow simmer, reduce heat to low and cook, whisking on and off, for about 10 minutes until the syrup is fully cooked together.Pumpkin Spice Syrup Recipe

Strain syrup through a wire mesh strainer (a powdered sugar sifter works perfectly) and pour into a glass storage jar.  Cool to room temperature, and then store in the fridge until use.

When ready to use, shake it up a bit (remember, no fake binders or fillers here) and then put about 1 teaspoon to 3 teaspoons in your morning coffee, depending on how sweet you prefer your coffee, along with your cream of choice. This would also be awesome over pancakes and even vanilla ice cream.

Should keep in well in the fridge for a few weeks.
