I finally have something for you involving pumpkin!
I’m so excited for my first pumpkin filled recipe. I love, love, love pumpkin and bake with it all year – it’s not just a fall thing in my house. Pumpkin, pumpkin spice, all the pumpkin things are amazing as far as I’m concerned.
My husband doesn’t agree at all. He’ll eat pumpkin things occasionally in the fall, but any other time of year he’s not really interested. And he thinks pumpkin spice lattes taste like a candle and need to go away. I don’t even understand that. They’re amazing. I am definitely getting around to making homemade pumpkin spice lattes this year just so that I can have them constantly without paying a small fortune for them!
Not that this recipe has anything to do with lattes, but whatever.
Pumpkin pie dip. That’s what we have today. Basically this is my grandma’s pumpkin pie recipe in dip form. That’s what it tastes like. Without the baking and the eggs and the pastry of course. Super fast, super easy, and super tasty. This dip made a great light dessert, and a perfect snack. It was a great way to have a taste of pumpkin pie without all the effort of making a pie!
Whipping cream, yogurt and pumpkin puree are whipped together with some sugar and spices to make a great tasting pumpkin pie dip. We loved this with graham crackers and some fruit to dip in it. So if you are craving pumpkin pie but don’t actually want to make a pie – try this dip – you’ll love it!
- 1 cup whipping cream (heavy cream)
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup light brown sugar
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ginger
- ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- In a large bowl with an electric mixer, or in the bowl of a stand mixer, whip the heavy cream and the plain Greek yogurt until soft peaks form, 2-3 minutes. Gradually add the white and brown sugar, with the mixer running, and continue beating for another 1-2 minutes until the sugar is incorporated and stiff peaks form.
- Stop the mixer and add the pumpkin puree and spices. Whip the mixture again to fully combine everything, another 30-60 seconds.
- Store the dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Serve with fruit or graham crackers for dipping.
