Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup (Refined Sugar Free) | RECIPE

Updated: Oct 20, 2019

It's the most wonderful time of the year...


Pumpkin everything is popping up all over, especially the hallmark of the season, Starbucks' pumpkin spice lattes!

Two things though:

1. The syrup used in the latte is not vegan.

2. It's chock full of crappy artificial ingredients.

Not to worry PSL lovers... we got you!

Here is our take on a healthier, refined sugar free, pumpkin spice syrup that will be your go-to sweetener this season. Use it in lattes and whatever else you wanna spice up with some fall flavors!


  • 1 cup water

  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar (my fav brand is Biogan)

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder or extract (I used powder)

Double all if you want to make more!


  1. In a medium saucepan, add water and both sweeteners. Simmer on medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves completely.

  2. Turn the heat down to low and whisk in the spices and pumpkin. Simmer for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Do not allow the mixture to come to a boil.

  3. Remove from the stovetop and add in vanilla, giving it a few final stirs.

  4. Strain the mixture through a mesh strainer to collect any stringy pieces of pumpkin or thick pieces of spices. Help it strain using a spoon.

  5. Store in a mason jar or airtight container. This way, the syrup will last a lot longer (up to 1 month at room temperature or 3 months in the refrigerator).

Enjoy, pumpkins!
