About This Pumpkin Spice Syrup

Flavor and sweeten with pumpkin spice goodness with this easy-to-make syrup that’s made from scratch.

  • Pumpkin spice syrup is a simple syrup that’s made with pumpkin spices and pumpkin puree. It’s a liquid sweetener that’s easy to add to drinks like coffee, tea, and cocktails. Add to hot milk to make pumpkin spice drinks for kids without any caffeine.
  • Pumpkin spice is a blend of ingredients that flavor a pumpkin pie. This pumpkin spice is made with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Some blends include allspice but I kept it simple with just four spices.
  • Pumpkin spice syrup is a flavored simple syrup made from the four spices, sugar, water, real pumpkin puree (comes in a can) and vanilla extract.
  • Recipe makes about a cup of syrup, so it can be made once then used all week to make Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, Pumpkin Spice Cold Foam, Pumpkin Spice Latte and Pumpkin Spice Chai.

Ingredient Notes

Pumpkin spice syrup ingredients.
  • Pumpkin purée
    You can’t make pumpkin spice syrup without real pumpkin since it just won’t taste the same. It’s sold in cans for about less than $2.00.
  • Granulated sugar
    Can’t have simple syrup without sugar.
  • Brown sugar
    Gives the syrup a richer, deeper sweetness to pumpkin spice syrup so I use half regular sugar and half brown sugar. Light or dark brown sugar both work so you what you have.
  • Vanilla extract
    Magically turns a good recipe into great recipe as a flavor enhancer.
  • Ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, and ground cloves
    All four spices are blended together to make pumpkin spice so you can’t leave any out.

    1 tsp. Of each: Vanilla extract & Pumpkin pie spice
    1/2 c. Water & 1/2 c. Almond milk

    Omitting the white & brown sugars … it came out delicious!

    • Hi Marcus, you definitely can make it with premade spices. Just replace the individual spices with 2 teaspoons of the premade.
