    What is Pumpkin Fluff? 

    Pumpkin Fluff is a dip, a dessert, a fall treat if you will. It’s creamy and delicious and the best  part is everything you dip into it.

    Don’t hesitate to lick your fingers clean should they find their  way into the bowl. You know it will be smiles to the table when you serve this up in a mini pumpkin too.

    Pumpkin Fluff Ingredients

    The ingredients for this dip are really quite simple. And aside from a few spice you more than likely already have in your spice cabinet, you really only need to pick up three things:

    • Pumpkin pureeMake your own or use store bought in a can.
    • Cool Whip– use a whipped topping, not actual whipped cream. It is more stable and will not fall flat and melt after a day or two in the fridge.
    • Instant vanilla pudding mix– Sugar free pudding works too.
    • Cinnamon – read my notes on fresh cinnamon and the best type to use for full flavors!
    • Nutmeg – ground or grate your own.
    • Allspice – ground or grind your own.

    • Pretzels
    • Gingersnaps

    Substitutions

    What makes this Pumpkin Fluff recipe so perfect is the light texture and great flavor, but also all of the ways you can customize it to your liking.

    For more of a rich flavor, try substituting instant cheesecake pudding for vanilla pudding. You can even add pumpkin pie spice for extra seasoning, or as a garnish on top.

    You can absolutely make this the day before too, although I prefer to fold in the Cool Whip right before serving so it doesn’t go flat.
