Homemade Pumpkin Spice Recipe

The easy recipe calls for pumpkin pie spice, and if you’d like to make your own it’s so easy.

In a small bowl, simply whisk together:

  • 1/3 cup ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice

Transfer to a tightly covered jar and store in a cool place. Homemade pumpkin pie spice makes a fun gift!

Creamy Real Pumpkin Spice Latte gets its rich flavor from pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice.

After topping your Real Pumpkin Spice Latte with whipped cream, you can drizzle it with chocolate syrup if you like.

I used Torani Dark Chocolate syrup to drizzle on top, but you can use regular chocolate syrup like Hershey's if you like. Yum!
