Pumpkin Spice Latte: Homemade & All Natural

It's Fall y'all.  That means it time to start enjoying all things pumpkin, right?  I really enjoy pumpkin spice lattes but have never been a huge fan of the Starbucks version { Especially after this article came out.  Yuck! }.  So, I was happy to see this recipe in the October 2014 issue of Good Housekeeping Magazine.  This recipe is simple, delicious, and best of all, you know exactly what is going into it!

- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- coffee
- organic milk, warmed
- whipped cream, if desired
- cinnamon, if desired

1.  In a sauce pan, combine sugar, water, pumpkin, cinnamon sticks, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice.  Stir until ingredients are combined.  Simmer over medium low heat, stirring occasionally, for 10-12 minutes.

2.  Remove from heat.  Strain twice.  Syrup may be kept for up to a month in the refrigerator.

3.  Add desired amount of milk to coffee cup, add 1-2 tablespoons of pumpkin syrup, add coffee and stir.  If desired, top with whipped cream and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.  Enjoy!
