Pumpkin Dip Ingredients

  • 1 (5.3 oz) vanilla package of instant pudding mix
  • 1 can (15oz) canned pumpkin puree (pure pumpkin) (make sure it is pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie)
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 container (16 oz) whipped topping (you can always substitute homemade whip cream instead of cool whip)

1. Step One to make Pumpkin Whip

Check out the recipe below for the full list of ingredients and easy steps!

Mix together 1 package (5.3 oz) of instant vanilla pudding mix, 1 can (15oz) of pure pumpkin (pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin), and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice together.

I like to be super simple and use my KitchenAid mixer. It’s quick and fast and boom doesn’t take long at all! It makes the creamy pumpkin dip so fluffy!

I start with my mixer on 1 until everything is incorporated and it doesn’t spill pudding mix everywhere and then turn it up to a medium speed until creamy!

2. Step Two to make Pumpkin Dip with Cool Whip

Stop mixing and add in half of 1 container (16 oz) of whipped topping by folding it in. (If you’re using frozen whipped topping, make sure it has thawed out)

Once folded in, add the other half of the container of whipped topping! It turns into an amazing fluffy dip.

I like to add this to a piping bag ( or you can just use a Ziploc bag and cut the tip off) and piping it into a bowl all fancy ;).

Once everything is all mixed in, it will be ready to serve right away! You can make this recipe at any time of the year but I love it as a fall dessert. This dip is quick and easy to make and have ready for any occasion.

  1. Hi…Good recipe…But I sincerely suggest adding 2 T of sugar to the 15 oz can of pumpkin puree before you do anything else.mix and continue on.Even a “squirt of pancake(maple flavored) “…It was just what this needed.I am not a “sugary person”…But this took the “bitterness away from the pumpkin puree.
    I also “finely crushed” some cinnamon flavored ghamam crackers on top just before serving.I served with both cinnamon crackers and ginger snaps…The adults(especially the men…Loved the ginger snaps.

  2. Delicious! Perfect as is. I served with ginger snaps. I tried making it again with a smidge of confections sugar, but it was too sweet. My neighborhood ladies (a bunch of 40 year olds) liked the bitter pumpkin taste versus the sweeter version.
