Ingredients for Pumpkin Spice Latte
A cup of whole milk
3 tablespoons of homemade pumpkin spice syrup
1 pinch of pumpkin pie spice
1 oz of Starbucks Espresso Roast or just 1 shot of espresso
½ cup of whipped cream
To make your Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup, you will need to do these steps:
1.Get a saucepan and combine water and sugar in it. Bring the mixture to a simmer using medium-high heat.
2.Add the cinnamon sticks as well as ground cloves, nutmeg, ginger, and your pumpkin puree into the saucepan. Then let it simmer for an extra 20 minutes.
3.Remove the pan from the heat and strain it using a cheesecloth. A coffee filter or fine wire sieve can do the trick, too, if you don’t have a cheesecloth at home. The goal here is to remove any chunks that may have been left behind by your pumpkin puree.

Set aside your pumpkin spice syrup and get started on your pumpkin spice latte using these steps:
1.Heat and froth your milk using your preferred method. If you prefer an iced version, you can skip this step and just add the ice before you put the whipped cream.
2.Brew your espresso roast.
3.Pour the syrup that you had made into a mug, then add the hot espresso. Stir the two together until they are blended well.
4.Fill your mug with the frothed milk until it is ¾ full, then add the whipped cream on top.
5.Add some pumpkin pie spice on top and enjoy!

What’s great about making your own pumpkin spice latte at home is that you can do it any time you like. You don’t even have to step outside your home to enjoy this fall favorite, plus making it can also add some cheerful vibe into your space.
