Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fall: That time of year to dust off the sweaters, put on some fuzzy socks, and get comfy while drinking a PSLs. Since these cozy drinks are only socially acceptable once a year (a bummer), you have to capitalize on them while you can. But don’t hand fists full of cash over the counter – make these at home. The best part? You can now look those once-a-year naysayers in the eye while you down PSL in spring, or really any time of year you want.

Pumpkin Spice Latte


  • For the PS simple syrup:
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar*
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened pumpkin purée
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • For the PSL:
  • 2 shots of espresso – or 1/2 cup strong coffee
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons PS simple syrup
  • Sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon


  1. In a medium pot, combine all the PS simple syrup ingredients together.
  2. Whisk over a medium heat, allowing the contents to simmer for about 5 minutes.
  3. The mixture should be smooth and slightly thickened; at this point, remove from heat.
  4. Combine to PSL immediately while it's hot, or allow it to cool completely before storing in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  5. Make the espresso or the coffee using preferred coffee grounds.
  6. In a small pot, add the almond milk.
  7. Bring the milk to a simmer over medium heat.
  8. Remove from heat, and immediate use a milk frother or a French press to froth.**
  9. In a mug, add coffee, PS simple syrup and milk. Top with preferred spices, and enjoy.


*Try coconut sugar instead of cane sugar for a low-sugar/low-GI option.

** A securely closed mason jar can also work. But use with caution, as the jar will be very hot while vigorously shaking.
