    By vanilla favor syrup do you mean syrup or like pancake syrup or coffee?

    guys--i am pretty sure Starbucks does not use real pumpkin in their pumpkin spice latte- which probably accounts fpr the grainyness you are having. try leaving the pumkin out and just use the spices and vanilla--you are probably not going to be able to produce a flavor like pumpkin artificially--or you could strain it in cheesecloth.

    Really all you need is a bottle of Monin pumpkin spice coffee syrup and some whipped cream to replicate the starbucks recipe without it getting grainy.

    The taste of the latte was strange. It was almost like it had no taste if that makes sense.

    Yum! I just had one of these at Starbucks today and couldn't wait to try to copy it. This is pretty close even though I had to make a few tweaks. I used double strength brewed coffee and vanilla extract splenda since I didn't have vanilla syrup. I bet it would be great with vanilla coffee creamer in place of the syrup. Just wish I had some whipped cream now!

    This is YUMMY! I used pumpkin I cooked up and pureed, rather than canned, specifically, a Cinderella Squash. But any of Pie Pumpkin, Acorn, Butternut or Hubbard would work.
