Call us basic, but warm, foamy pumpkin spice latte is just the beverage that we're craving during the fall months. Here, we made a pumpkin spice simple syrup that you can make with easy, at-home ingredients and none of those preservatives that you'll find in your PSL from Starbucks. Strong brewed coffee and whisked milk allow you to mimic the flavors of a latte without any of the heavy-duty cafe equipment. Make a batch of the seasonal syrup and add it to your cup of joe in the morning throughout the week, or make all the lattes at once for a cozy morning with friends.
1 cup water
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/2 cup canned pumpkin purée
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 cups strongly brewed coffee*
3 cups 1% low-fat milk*
How to Make It
Over low heat in a medium saucepan, add water, sugars, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Whisk and then let simmer for 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and add vanilla extract.
Brew coffee. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk milk vigorously until warm and foamy.
For each individual latte, mix 1 cup of coffee with 4 tablespoons of syrup until syrup is dissolved. Top with 1/2 cup of whisked milk.
If making only one latte, brew 1 cup of coffee and use 1/2 cup of milk, and keep remaining syrup in a sealed container.
