Pumpkin Fluff Dip


Pumpkin Fluff Dip is an oh so addictive treat, and my favorite fall snack!


Ben has politely requested that I cease and desist from making anything else with pumpkin in it until further notice.

Between Pumpkin Gingersnap Cookies, Failed Baked Pumpkin French Toast, and FOUR additional pumpkin recipes I’ve made for freelance projects in the past few weeks – he’s over it.

I promised him I’d subside…right after this final recipe. :) Pumpkin Fluff Dip!

What a way to go out!!


We’re heading to Iowa City to tailgate with friends for the football game today, so I whipped up a big batch of this sweet, fluffy, highly addictive dip to take with us. It’s going to be a HIT (with everyone except Ben, I’m sure.)


Pumpkin Fluff Dip


Pumpkin Fluff Dip is an oh so addictive treat, and my favorite fall snack!


  • 8oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup fat-free whipped topping
  • Dippers:
    •  Graham crackers
    • Nilla wafers
    • Gingersnap cookies
    • apples
    • grapes


  1. Combine all ingredients except whipped topping in a food processor. Process until very smooth then pour into a large bowl. (Alternatively you could beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth, then add in the pumpkin and spices and continue to mix until smooth.)
  2. Fold in the whip cream. Serve with dippers.

The food processor makes this pumpkin fluff dip thick and luscious, while the addition of whipped cream gives it a mousse-like texture.


It’s sweet, pumpkin-spiced and so smooth.


It’ll be the perfect addition to the tailgate!


Have a great Saturday everyone!

  1. this sounds incredible! i’ve been making a ton of pumpkin goodies lately too so my husband is tired of them as well. sad day!

  2. My go-to dip is boring Taco dip. This pumpkin recipe wins hands down. :-)

  3. This pumpkin dip looks fantastic! What a perfect go-to dip for parties or weekend snack time, ha.

    Have a great weekend!

    Do Bloody Marys count as a tail gate food? How about if I add lots of yummy pickles, celery, baby corn, and OLIVES…….????? Yummy!!!!!!! Best Tailgate Staple EVER!!!!!!

  6. Omg that looks delicious! I wish my grocery stores would start carrying pumpkin already!

  7. Thick and creamy.. looks incredible! I could make a meal out of dips and dippers alone.
    I tend to fall back on chili recipes when it comes to tailgating ideas.. simply because it can be used in so many ways! On top of hot dogs or pasta, as a chip dip, a walking taco salad.. the list is endless!

  8. So – that looks amazing!! I’m with you though – my hubby would like me to STOP making pumpkin recipes! I. CAN’T. HELP. IT. I LOVE this season and everything pumpkin!!

    There is a pumpkin mac and cheese in the October Better Homes & Gardens. Has anyone tried it? It won a $500 prize.

    Made this a few weekends ago and it was the hit of the party! Everyone loved it!

    We were at the Hawkeye game too. Wished I known where you were tailgating….I would have stopped by to try some of that awesome looking dip. :) Can’t wait to make it.

  12. Mmmm this looks so good. My boyfriend isn’t a big pumpkin fan so I’ve had to scale down all the pumpkin recipes too – I can’t eat everything by myself!

  13. My hubby and I have “The Great Pumpkin Debate” every year as well. I, however, have several more things on my pumpkin list, so I’m not giving up yet. :-) My most epic pumpkin fail was pumpkin hummus. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but not so much.

  14. I love bringing mexican type dips… 7 layer dip for example.

    Awesome fluff dip. I make mine with butterscotch pudding and it’s wicked good! http://coffeecakeandcardio.org/2011/10/10/birthday-week-plan-october-10-16/

    That dip looks delicious! :)

  16. My friend just made this yesterday! IT is AMAZINGLY delicious!

  17. I made a variation of this last night with marshmallow fluff in lieu of the sour cream and cool whip. Loved it with animal crackers!

    This looks amazing and I am going to make it for a holiday dinner this weekend…Question for you, do you think you could sub out the sour cream for plain greek yogurt??

    Thanks – love your blog!
