5 Homemade Pumpkin Spice Recipes to Flavor Your Fall
On the cusp of autumn, our minds wander to thoughts of apple picking, chilly mornings and colorful leaves. So break out your favorite scarf and reminisce with us over autumns past and muse over what’s to come. If there’s one thing we can be sure of, it’s that there’s a “gourd-geous” fall flavor awaiting latte lovers of all kinds.
As the most popular fall flavor—and let’s be honest, the earliest to the occasion—the words “pumpkin spice” permeate the café line as much as the spiced smell of cinnamon. Even if the trek to your local café and waiting in line don’t bother you, there’s something great about a homemade latte that tastes just as good. Save money and a trip to the store while getting your pumpkin spice fix at the same time. Whether a morning pick-me-up or a late night dessert, Pumpkin Spice Classic Syrup lends a decadent hand for less.
