Easy Pumpkin Dip

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip

This is a really easy pumpkin dip recipe that even the kids can help make!  My daughter made this at preschool, and the kids made their own version  they enjoyed squishing the ingredients together in a ziploc bag!


  • 1 can pumpkin (15oz)
  • 1-2 packages cream cheese (8oz each)
  • 1tbsp cinnamon, and 1 tsp ginger – or other spices (for example pumpkin pie spices)
  • 1/2 cup sugar*


Beat ingredients in a mixer until smooth.  My kids mixed theirs in a mixing bowl, by hand, and there were a lot of small lumps of cream cheese in it, but they didn’t mind.  I have made this with one container of cream cheese instead of two (like in the photo above), which is a good lower-fat alternative.  It is not as thick but it still holds together just fine for dipping.

You can chill before serving if desired.

Serve with graham crackers (great way to use all the leftover graham crackers we have from campfire s’mores!), teddy grahams, cookies, fruit, and more.

This is such an easy recipe, and my daughter and I both really enjoyed making and eating this!

* The original recipe I used was from Very Best Baking, which calls for 2 cups of sugar, but I cut it way down to 1/2 cup, and we still loved this recipe, especially because we ate it with graham crackers, which have their own sweetness.  You can adjust it to how much you like.
