It’s that time of year again. The time of year that everyone is freaking out about pumpkin spice lattes and all things pumpkin. Starbucks is even selling special PSL travel mugs, but they have yet to offer a sugar-free version. Really Starbucks? So why spend your money on a latte at Starbucks when you can make one at home yourself? Well guess what. You can make yourself a latte – if you have an espresso maker – or you can add this sugar free pumpkin spice coffee syrup to a regular cup of coffee. It’s autumn in a cup, and it’s sugar free.

    This is PERFECT for this time of year! I love the sugar-free aspect (and so will my waistline!) The only thing I worry about is knowing when the pumpkin is ripe to be sued in drinks and pies and cakes etc, I’ve had a few times when I’ve cut into it and it’s not ripe enough and therefore not delicious enough… is there a trick to figuring this out before you buy?

      I actually have never had that problem, so I’m not sure I can be of any help for that. You can also use canned pumpkin if you don’t want to wait for them to ripen. I have used both for this recipe and it turned out the same.

      I’m really not sure because I haven’t done it that way before. I suppose I would start out with about 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon & maybe 1/8 teaspoon of cloves and then add more if you find it to be lacking in flavor. But, I would really recommend using the whole sticks. Otherwise you will end up with a really cloudy/grainy syrup.

    truvia isn’t sugar free though, to make it sugar free you would have to do all erythritol or xylitol, for some one doing strict low carb, I would use truvia since I’m doing ww smart points and truvia brown I got for only $3 a bag, making some right now, thanks

      Truvia is Erythritol and Stevia, therefore, Sugar free. Maybe your thinking of the Truvia baking blend? Which does contain sugar and is not sugar free.
