Make This Festive Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix In Just 3 Minutes


From vegan pumpkin pies to frothy oat milk PSLs, this DIY pumpkin pie spice mix is a must in your holiday kitchen.

Use this delightful pumpkin pie spice in my Solid Gold Pumpkin Pie Spice Coconut Latte and Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice Salad. It really is the most delicious thing sprinkled on roasted sweet potatoes with sea salt and a drizzle of pure maple syrup.

You can even add it to Coconut Whipped Cream to make an autumn-friendly flavored version! I like to keep a large batch on hand because I find myself using it in (and on) just about everything throughout the fall and winter seasons . . . cakes, cookies, bars, oatmeal, smoothies, lattes, chia seed pudding, and more. It’s sure to perk up any gloomy-weather day!

And if you’re looking for a last-minute host or hostess gift, look no further. Simply assemble the spice mix in a small glass jar (feel free to double the recipe, if need be), pop a tag and ribbon on it, and you have a lovely edible gift that’ll keep on giving all season long! Thanks to Nicole Axworthy and Lisa Pitman’s cookbook, DIY Vegan, for inspiring this recipe.
