Pumpkin Pie Syrup for Pumpkin Spice Lattes
I don't drink coffee.
I love the smell of freshly brewed coffee, the smells of a coffeehouse, the atmosphere of a coffee shop. I just don't love coffee.
Since I'm not a coffee drinker, I've always wondered what all the hype is about "pumpkin spiced lattes" every fall. Everywhere on social media, you start seeing people talk about PSL's every September. I love pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins, and all baked things with pumpkin. I was always curious about pumpkin spice lattes, but since I'm not a coffee lover, I've never tried one.
If you follow the Lazuli Farms on Instagram, you'll know that I LOVE chai tea lattes! Every week, I make a double or triple batch of chai tea latte concentrate to last me through the week.
So, my mind started thinking, would pumpkin spice latte work for a chai tea latte??
I did some digging and found out that most pumpkin spice lattes are made with a pumpkin spiced syrup. Well well. How about we mix a homemade pumpkin spiced syrup with a chai tea latte??
You won't be surprised to learn that the result is OH SO TASTY!
So grab a pumpkin, bake it up and use the puree to make the syrup below for your pumpkin spiced lattes and pumpkin spiced chai tea latte!
You can use your homemade pumpkin pie spice in the recipe as well!
Pumpkin Pie Syrup Recipe
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin (how to here)
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- 2 cups brown sugar
In a medium saucepan, mix ingredients together and heat over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and turn down to maintain a steady simmer. Stir often while the mixture simmers and thickens. Continue cooking until the syrup is thickened to the consistency of maple syrup. It will thicken more as it cools.
Make about 1.5 cups of syrup. Pour into a mason jar and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Pumpkin Spiced Chai Tea Latte Recipe
- 1 cup chai tea latte concentrate (recipe here)
- 1 cup milk of your choice
- 1 to 2 tablespoons pumpkin pie syrup
- pinch of cinnamon & nutmeg
Mix your ingredients together and heat to your liking. Sprinkle with cinnamon & nutmeg. And enjoy!
