Who doesn’t love a good dip during the holiday season??  Such an easy dessert to throw together with just a few simple ingredients that is healthy to boot!  So much delicious pumpkin flavor with warm spices and protein-packed Greek yogurt that tastes amazing with fresh fruit slices like apples, pears or bananas making it perfect for kids!  The best part about this spiced pumpkin dip is that it can easily be made in just 5 minutes!

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • Pumpkin – I used canned pumpkin purée for this, just make sure you use 100% pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling as that is loaded with tons of sugar
  • Greek yogurt – makes this dip super creamy and is a great source of protein!  You could also sub Cool Whip for the Greek yogurt or even dairy-free yogurt if vegan or have a dairy allergy
  • Almond butter – adds even more creaminess, flavor and thickens the dip, but feel free to use any nut butter of choice
  • Maple syrup – naturally sweetens this pumpkin dip and tastes amazing with all these warm spices.  You could also use honey or other natural sweetener
  • Vanilla – the perfect flavor boost!
  • Spices – delicious combination of pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and nutmeg

How to Make Spiced Pumpkin Dip

This pumpkin dip is super EASY to make!  Simply combine all ingredients together in a large bowl, mix well with a spoon or spatula and that’s it!  A delicious fall dip everyone is guaranteed to love.  I do like to let this dip chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving, but feel free to make this the day before serving as well!

How to Serve Spiced Pumpkin Dip

  • Apple, pear or banana slices
  • Gingersnap cookies
  • Vanilla wafers or graham crackers
  • Pretzels (I love this sweet/salty combo!)
  • Cinnamon pita chips
  • Add a dollop to desserts for more pumpkin flavor
  • Layer with whipped cream for parfaits

Prepping and Storing

This spiced pumpkin dip will last for about a week in your fridge in a sealed, airtight container.  Unfortunately I do not recommend freezing this dip as yogurt tends to separate when frozen which will change the texture of this dip, but you certainly could freeze it and just mix it really well after it thaws.  If you try this, please let me know in the commends how it turns out!
