This Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte is the perfect fall drink! It's made with homemade pumpkin syrup and you can make it both iced or hot. 



Pumpkin spice syrup:

  • 1 cup cane sugar (I used ½ cup cane sugar and ½ cup dark brown sugar, any sweetener works)
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2-3 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 tsp cloves
  • 2-3 tbsp peeled and chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract or vanilla paste
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg (optional)

Pumpkin latte:

  • ½ cup milk (I use oat milk)
  • 2 shots espresso
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin spice syrup

Topping: whipped cream and 1 tbsp turbinado sugar with ¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice (optional)


Pumpkin spice syrup:

  1. Add sugar, water, pumpkin puree, cinnamon sticks, cloves, ginger, and vanilla to a saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil while stirring constantly to make sure the sugar dissolves and doesn’t burn.
  3. Lower the heat and simmer the syrup for 5-7 minutes.
  4. Take it off the heat, add ground nutmeg if using and allow it to cool for 15-20 minutes. The longer it sits, the stronger the flavors will be. I don’t recommend letting it sit for longer than 30 minutes.
  5. When ready, strain the syrup into a bowl through a fine mesh strainer to catch all the spices and the pumpkin puree.
  6. Transfer the syrup to a glass jar and store it in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.

Pumpkin latte:

  1. Fill a tall glass with ice ¾ way to the top.
  2. Froth your milk if desired and pour it over the ice. I like cold frothing my milk in either a regular milk frother or a handheld one.
  3. Brew 2 shots of espresso and pour them over the milk and ice.
  4. Add the pumpkin spice syrup and add a straw.
  5. Top the drink with whipped cream and turbinado sugar mixed with pumpkin pie spice if desired and enjoy!


Coarse (turbinado) sugar mixed with pumpkin pie spice is a great crunchy topping for drinks or desserts. Make a bigger batch to have it ready for drinks all fall long!

The nutritional facts are only an estimate. They're counted with cane sugar syrup, oat milk, and no whipped cream or sugar topping.
