Meet my new fall staple: healthy pumpkin spice syrup! I’ve been using this vegan & refined sugar-free pumpkin syrup in my coffee every day since I first made it. It’s a new staple around here – flavorful, super easy to make in less than 15 minutes, only six ingredients, and hard to mess up.
This pumpkin syrup uses real pumpkin puree, not just the spices, and it’s made without any white processed sugar!
Do you know what’s in the pumpkin spice sauce that a certain coffee shop uses? It’s, well, not a great list of ingredients:
Sugar, Condensed Skim Milk, Pumpkin Puree, Contains 2 Or Less Of Fruit And Vegetable Juice For Color, Natural Flavors, Annatto, Salt, Potassium Sorbate, from Starbucks

Healthy Pumpkin Spice Syrup Ingredients!
- Canned Pumpkin: 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: it helps give the syrup a nice caramelly texture and flavor. You can leave it out if you prefer a less sweet syrup.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice: all the warm spices to enhance the pumpkin. You can also do a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
- Water: just enough to thin the syrup out to a pourable consistency.
- 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 bring to a simmer 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.
How to store homemade pumpkin syrup
I like to store my homemade pumpkin spice syrup in a bottle with a flip top that’s easy to pour without making a big mess.
Store your syrup in the refrigerator for up to three weeks.
