It is the season for all things Pumpkin Spice as we celebrate the fall. Is it one of your favorite flavors?
Pumpkin Spice is a mixture of spices. You can make your own mixture or buy a jar in the spice aisle. The Pumpkin Pie Spice from Sprouts Farmers Market is made with cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg. It is a blend of cozy and warm spices that you’ll find in everything from coffee to ice cream this time of year.
Pumpkin spice is perfect when you are using pumpkin puree in a recipe. It amps up that pumpkin flavor and makes this dip with cream cheese taste like pumpkin cheesecake or pie filling. Try it in other pumpkin recipes like gluten free pumpkin bread or pumpkin bars.
Dessert dips are popular in many flavors and pumpkin is ideal for the fall holidays. I love that you can make this sweet dip ahead of time, refrigerate it, then be ready to serve dessert very quickly. Have fun with the presentation and add a combination of fruits, cookies, crackers and pretzels to your dessert board for your fall parties. This delicious pumpkin dip recipe will be a crowd pleaser!
File this under the easy recipes category because you only need a handful of ingredients and ten minutes to make this creamy pumpkin dip!
Cream cheese: Soften the cream cheese by letting it sit on the countertop to come to room temperature. Cold cream cheese doesn’t blend well.
Pumpkin puree: Canned pumpkin is a pantry staple for me year round and I use it most often in recipes in the fall. Make sure you are using pure pumpkin puree– the only ingredient listed should be pumpkin. If you find a canned pumpkin pie filling, save it for another time.
Brown sugar: Light brown or dark brown sugar are fine in this recipe.
Pumpkin pie spice: Buy this spice at Sprouts or make your own pumpkin pie spice.
Vanilla extract: I love a touch of vanilla in this recipe. You could try maple syrup instead for a great fall flavor.
How to make easy pumpkin dip

What to serve with pumpkin dip
Serve this no bake dessert with Coconut Rolls, apple slices, pear slices, fresh fruit, pretzels, vanilla wafers, gingersnap cookies or cinnamon graham crackers.
Have you tried Coconut Rolls from Sprouts? I hope they become your favorite dippers! They are a gluten free snack made with coconut milk then baked into a crunchy rolled treat. They come in so many flavors– original, chocolate, cinnamon, mango and, of course, pumpkin spice! Grab these pumpkin spice coconut rolls while they are available.
You can dip the coconut rolls in this pumpkin dip, in your tea or coffee, or try them with ice cream. Buy a few extra bags just for snacking– they are so tasty and will disappear quickly.
I love that Sprouts frequently adds to their gluten free offerings. Each time I shop I spot another item that I can add to my pantry. What’s your latest GF find at Sprouts? Let me know!
Tips and Tricks
- Make sure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature before you make this recipe. It will blend with the brown sugar much more easily if it is softened.
- Pumpkin Spice is easy to make at home. Combine 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ½ teaspoon ginger, ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, and ¼ teaspoon ground cloves. Make it your own blend by changing the amounts and proportions.
- You’ll only need one cup of pumpkin puree which is not a full can. Use the extra puree in other pumpkin recipes like pumpkin fruit leather, pumpkin granola, or pumpkin smoothies.
- 8 oz Sprouts Cream Cheese, softened
- ½ cup Sprouts Light Brown Sugar
- 1 cup Sprouts Pumpkin (canned puree)
- 1 Tbsp. Sprouts Pumpkin Pie spice
- 1 tsp. Sprouts vanilla extract
1. In a large bowl beat the 8 oz softened cream cheese with an electric mixer on high for 3 minutes. You could instead use a stand mixer with the paddle attachment.
2. Add ½ light brown sugar and continue to beat on high for another 2-3 minutes.
3. Add 1 cup pumpkin puree, 1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes.
