Happy 1st Day of Fall {Pumpkin Dip}!

Happy First Day of Fall!

To celebrate the first day of my favorite season each year I always re-share one of my most popular fall recipes – Pumpkin Dip! And I know y’all love it too because this recipe/post is always one of my top 3 blog posts of all time! My mother-in-law shared this recipe with me long ago and we both pretty much keep a container of it in our fridge all season long. It’s a quick snack to throw together, it keeps well and you can make it as healthy as you want. For girls nights I’ll serve it with vanilla waffers and ginger snaps. And when I’m trying to behave I’ll make it with low fat cool whip, sugar free pudding and eat it with apples!

So here it is again! Bring out the best of fall’s flavors with this super easy pumpkin dip.

Fall Pumpkin Dip

Ingredients15 oz can of pumpkin
5 oz box of instant vanilla pudding {just the powder, don’t make the pudding}
16 oz container of cool whip 
small pumpkin
½ Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
½ Tablespoon cinnamon
Optional spider decor  


1. Mix pumpkin, pudding mix powder, cool whip and pumpkin pie spice together in a large bowl.

2. Chill for several hours in the refrigerator. Meanwhile, carve out your pumpkin.

3. Fill carved pumpkin with dip. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve with fresh apples slices, vanilla wafers or ginger snaps.

Note: Sometimes I like to add a little spider ring to the spook up my dip around Halloween. You can find them for a few dollars (here)!

    I've had this pinned for about 4 years and finally making it! Glad to stumble upon your blog too, I live in NC and a friend is about to go through a double mastectomy as well. Going to go read about it!
