  • It helps sleep and mood: Pumpkin seeds in particular are an excellent source of tryptophan, an essential amino acid that is converted to serotonin, a chemical associated with healthy sleep and happiness.

Pumpkin is an excellent source of vitamins A, C and zinc, all antioxidants that strengthen the immune system. Pumpkin also contains beta-carotene, an antioxidant plant pigment that gives pumpkin its bright orange colour.

    FOR THE PUMPKIN SPICE SYRUP:
    • 1 cup water
    • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar or pure maple syrup
    • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
    SPICES:
    • 4 3-inch cinnamon sticks
    • 1 whole nutmeg
    • 3/4 teaspoon whole cloves
    • 3/4 teaspoon whole allspice
      OR
    • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice mix
    FOR THE PUMPKIN SPICE ICED COFFEE:
    • Plain ice cubes or coffee ice cubes
    • 1 cup cold-brewed iced coffee concentrate
    • 1/2 cup water (or skip the water and go with more iced coffee concentrate – your preference)
    • 2 tablespoons pumpkin spice syrup (or more or less, to taste)
    • Half and half or your favorite non-dairy coffee creamer (I like my homemade cashew milk coffee creamer in this; coconut or almond milk creamer would also work wonderfully)
    • Freshly grated nutmeg (or ground nutmeg) or ground cinnamon for topping

    Instructions

    MAKE PUMPKIN SPICE SYRUP:
    1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low-medium heat. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Do not allow to boil. Remove from heat then let it cool to room temperature.
    2. If using whole spices, drain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove the solids. Transfer syrup to a lidded jar or bottle. Keeps, refrigerated, for one month. Shake before using.
    MAKE PUMPKIN SPICE ICED COFFEE:
    1. Fill a tall glass with ice cubes. Add coffee concentrate, water if using, creamer of choice, and pumpkin spice syrup. Stir. Sprinkle nutmeg and/or cinnamon over the top.
