10 Pumpkin Spice Recipes We’re Currently Craving

Let's put the spice back in pumpkin spice.

Food & Drink

Am I the only one who waits all year long for pumpkin spice to come into season? I didn't think so! The scent of pumpkin spice brings back good vibes, great memories and all the feels of just being warm and cozy. Growing up in the Midwest, anything that was meant for warmth during this time of year was a win.

But we all know this beloved ingredient is only available (and on-trend) for a limited time. And other than being a delicious, tall order at Starbucks, pumpkin spice has amazing benefits. It's a great source of fiber and can double as a detox, specifically for the liver and kidneys. If you're like me, you need all the cleansing you can get!

If you feel like you've overdone pumpkin spice and have no more fuel left in you, or just want to find new ways to put the spice back in pumpkin spice, we have 10 ideas that can pump you up again!
