The Pumpkin Spice Syrup Ingredients!

  • Canned Pumpkin: a lot of this! Make sure to grab pure pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie mix, which is pre-spiced and sweetened.
  • Maple Syrup: adds a lovely maple flavor to the syrup, and provides sweetness of course.
  • Coconut Sugar: this helps the syrup get a nice caramelly texture and flavor.
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice: all the warm spices to enhance the pumpkin.
  • Water: just to thin the syrup out to a pourable consistancy.
  • Vanilla Extract: for extra flavor.

How to make Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup

First, you’ll combine the pumpkin and spices in a small saucepan. You’ll cook them together for about 1 minute, just to cook off any “canned pumpkin” flavor and enhance the spices a bit.

Next, add in the maple syrup, coconut sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and water. Mix to combine and cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the coconut sugar is dissolved.

It should have a thin, pourable consistency, with a little bit of caramelly texture. Add more water if it’s thickened more than you’d like. Add vanilla extract, and then pour it into a bottle.

Uses for Vegan Pumpkin Spice Syrup

  • Add a few tablespoons to a chai latte to make a pumpkin spice chai!
