Pumpkin Fluff Dip Recipe

Only 3 Ingredients needed for this Pumpkin Fluff Recipe + Spices – So Simple!

This Pumpkin Fluff Dip Recipe is the perfect quick and easy dessert/dip to get on the table for fall gatherings, or just to enjoy at home. There is no baking required, it only needs 3 ingredients (plus spices) to make, and it is ready to enjoy in a very short time.

One thing I love about this pumpkin fluff recipe is that it acts as a dessert and a dip, so it is pretty versatile to add to the Thanksgiving table, or use for a get together. This recipe is light and fluffy, as it is made with cool whip, and is simply folded together. If you are looking for another option that is a little more dense, try this pumpkin dip recipe that we make using cream cheese too.

If you wanting a low carb or low sugar dessert, this pumpkin fluff dessert is perfect. Just choose a sugar free pudding and sugar free cool whip to make this version.

Pumpkin dip with fluff if also an easy recipe for kids to make as well (and easy to clean up)!

This Toffee Apple Dip & Peanut Butter Dip are two more simple yet delicious fall dip you can serve along side this pumpkin dip with cool whip too. The best part is that sliced apples and graham crackers or wafer cookies work perfect for dipping in all three dips, keeping things simple.

Pumpkin Dip Recipe Ingredients

The ingredients for this pumpkin dip recipe are very simple. I also love that you can keep all of these in the pantry, and cool whip in the freezer, in case you want to have things on hand for last minute dip or dessert needs.

  • 1 15 oz can pumpkin puree or the equivalent of homemade pumpkin puree
  • 1 5 oz instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 16 oz. whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice (or 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger)

You will also want something to serve with your pumpkin fluff dip. We used apples and graham crackers, but share more ideas below too.

How to Make this Pumpkin Fluff Dip Recipe :

This recipe is really about as simple as they come. You are mixing two things together, and folding in the cool whip. Then chilling it for a quick minute, and that is it.

In a large bowl mix together the pumpkin, vanilla pudding and pumpkin pie spice.

Next, fold in the whipped topping until well blended.

Once your mixture is blended, it is ready to chill in the refrigerator until you plan to serve it.

We serve ours with apples or graham crackers. A few more ideas include:

  • ginger snaps
  • vanilla wagers
  • animal crackers (if you are making it for kids)

We kept ours simple by serving it in a serving dish, but a couple more idea if you want to be more festive include:

  • Serve it in a hollowed out pumpkin or gourd.
  • Put individual sized servings in small mason jars, and people can grab their own personal sized dip to use.
  • You can turn it into a Pumpin Fluff Pie instead of dip, simply by adding your pumpkin fluff dip to a graham cracker crust and chilling.
  • Dust the top with more of the pumpkin spices for show.
