2. Add pumpkin and spices, and whisk until smooth.  Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent boiling. Remove from heat and allow to cool for about 30 minutes. Pour into container, straining if desired. Store in the fridge and shake well before using.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Directions

1. Place desired amount of pumpkin syrup in a large thermos or mug. Add espresso or coffee and stir to combine. Pour frothed or steamed milk on top and stir lightly. I do not have a milk frother, so I used my immersion blender.  Top with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.  The leftover syrup is delicious on ice cream or waffles, too.  Enjoy!
