Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino

One last hurrah for winter!

Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino
Serves 2 (Makes almost 700ml of Pumpkin Spice Syrup which you can store in the refrigerator for more Pumpkin Spice Lattes, yay!)

For the Pumpkin Spice Syrup: 
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
3 cinnamon sticks
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 whole nutmeg

For the Frappuccinos:
250ml milk (I used low fat)
125ml espresso, cold
1/2 cup ice
4 tablespoons pumpkin puree
4 tablespoons Pumpkin Spice Syrup
Whipped cream for serving
Pumpkin pie spice for garnish

Make the Pumpkin Spice Syrup:
Put the water and sugar into a medium saucepan and bring to boil. Once the sugar has dissolved add the spices and simmer the mixture for about 10 - 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and strain through a fine mesh strainer. Leave to cool, then chill in the refrigerator.

Make the Frappuccinos:
Put the milk, espresso, ice, pumpkin puree and the Pumpkin Spice Syrup into a blender and blitz until smooth. pour into two glasses and top with piped whipped cream and sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice.


  1. Pumpkin are all over the place in the public markets so I think someone is telling me to make this! I'm sure it's far better that those in the coffee shop that costs too much. Love, loveeee the syrup :)

  2. I hope you are having an awesome time in Japan at the moment Jen. This frappuccino would be perfect for the windy spring day we are having here in Brisbane, and I bet it would be awesome after a long hot run too. Can't wait to give it a go!

  3. Seriously loving all of the pumpkin goodness on the interweb (is that a word? I heard someone use it recently and it sounded cool. Am I cool?) at the moment. This one looks DIVINE. That frothy, glorious topping and real pumpkin? Gimme. Now. That sounded demanding... uh, sorry. Pumpkin does that to me.

  4. This looks so so yummy. Love it

  5. This looks delicious! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.

  6. This looks so delicious - kind of my dream winter drink!
