You may know pumpkin spice from Starbucks, where their popular “pumpkin spice latte” owes its delicious taste to this famous blend. A simple spice mix that fills your home with delicious autumn scents of cinnamon and cloves.

I love cinnamon and other earthy spices. They remind me of autumn, as they often combined with pumpkin. These spices also remind me of Christmas, as there are similar combinations in gingerbread.

If you have bought a spice, such as allspice and / or cloves in whole form, you need to grind it first. You can do this with a pestle and mortar or, with a coffee or spice grinder.

You can store this “pumpkin spice blend” in a tightly closed jar for a very long time, so that you always have a delicious spice mix at hand.

Tea and homemade pumpkin spice blend

Instead of buying your pumpkin spice, you can choose to make it at home. The homemade pumpkin spice blend is basically buying spices like nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves from a supermarket or store to blend them all together. Your homemade spice blend can easily go well with coffee tea or Hokkaido milk tea.

Babies and pumpkin spice blend

Can babies have cinnamon in food? Adding cinnamon to your baby’s food can have various benefits, and your little one may even enjoy the flavor.  A small amount should be okay, but adding pumpkin spice is probably a bit too much, so we wouldn't recommend it.
