‘Tis the season
This is one of those DIY things. Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix season comes around for a fleeting moment right after the kids head back to school. It’s almost like Starbucks is the gatekeeper of Pumpkin Spice Latte season.
So when Starbucks says it’s time to open the flood gates on all things #PSL then you will be hit with EVERYTHING pumpkin.
Although we still have 80* days here in Santa Monica well into late September, I can’t help but get in the spirit of a traditional Fall. I do miss sweater weather and crisp mornings from my time in Connecticut.
Anything pumpkin gets me back in the mood, even if I am wearing flip flops and shorts through Halloween.
During that fleeting moment of the season you can find Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix pre-made in your local grocery store. Sometimes I will blink and then it’s gone.
If I see the package of Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix I generally grab it…because it’s such a novelty. Also, once you use it all up you will be out of luck trying to find it until the next Fall.
You can buy it online, but then you will have to wait for it to arrive. Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix online is relatively inexpensive and I like the Brand Primal Palate Organic.
You can also go to Thrive Market with a small monthly subscription and get it relatively inexpensive there. Again, you would have to wait for it to arrive through shipping.
DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix
The good news is that this mix is so easy to make and you probably already have these spices in your pantry. Just toss all the ingredients into a mason jar and shake them up.
Keep them in an air-tight mason jar in a cool, dry pantry and they will last you through the holidays.

Starbucks SUGAR BOMBS
Starbucks has drinks and pastries flying at you from all angles…and unfortunately packed with tons of sugar and carbs.
It’s best to stick with black coffee from Starbucks with a little sprinkle of cinnamon.
- 4 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 4 tsp ground ginger
- 4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 2 tsp ground allspice
- 2 tsp ground cloves
- Pour all ingredients into an airtight jar and shake all together. Keep in a cool dry pantry until ready to use.
