How to use homemade pumpkin spice syrup
- #1: Pumpkin Spice Lattes (hello, homemade psl syrup!)
- Kids Pumpkin Spice Steamed Milk (lovingly known as Autumn Bombs in this house)
- Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal
- Syrup for Pancakes
- Syrup for Waffles
- Anything maple syrup would go in that you want to taste like fall
No. The pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks contains dairy in the syrup. So, even if you order it with coconut milk or a non-dairy milk, it's not 100% vegan.
Most pumpkin spice syrup does not contain any pumpkin. The flavor you love from a pumpkin pie mostly comes from the spice mix, and that's what's included in most pumpkin pie syrups.
This syrup will keep in the refrigerator for a long time, up to 3 months, since the ingredients are all long-lasting ingredients. You may want to try keeping it at room temperature, but I have not tested this, so cannot recommend it.

Fall. Autumn. I'm talking sweater weather. Socks and boots. Changing of the leaves and all that jazz. Basically, a respite from the heat and our beautiful, chilly transition to winter. Yay!
Along with fall comes everything pumpkin.
And, who doesn't love a good PSL? (That's pumpkin spice latte, by the way) It's almost synonymous with the season here in the US.
But, at $5 a pop, they don't come cheap. And, I recently found out that there's no way to make a truly dairy-free, vegan pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks. The pumpkin spice syrup they use has dairy in it.
The good news is that it's pretty darn easy to make your own pumpkin spice syrup at home. It's delicious and requires just 3 ingredients, including water!
It will keep in the fridge for at least 3 months (longer probably since sugar is a preservative, but that's up to you). And, it's refined sugar free by using coconut sugar. Yippee!
This syrup is great for, you guessed it, pumpkin spice lattes! But, it's great on other things, too!
My boys have been making their own coffee-less kids pumpkin spice "lattes" with this syrup, which are basically warm, delicious autumn bombs.
Warm milk + pumpkin spice syrup + marshmallows.
A kid-friendly "latte" that's easy enough for them to prepare themselves. Plus, tell a kid it's called an autumn bomb and they'll automatically like it. Promise.
This syrup is also delicious over oatmeal, pancakes and waffles!

- Whisk all ingredients together in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, whisking frequently to prevent burning.
- Simmer for 3-5 minutes to dissolve the sugar and slightly thicken the mixture.
- Remove from heat and allow to cool.
COCONUT SUGAR SUBSTITUTE:
Instead of coconut sugar, you can substitute brown sugar (but, then it will not be refined sugar free).
PUMPKIN PIE SPICE SUBSTITUTE:
If you don't have store-bought pumpkin pie spice already mixed together, then add the following spices to this syrup, instead of the 1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice:
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
Add 1-2 tablespoons of pumpkin spice syrup for 8 ounces of plant-based milk, coffee or prepared latte.
