10-Minute Pumpkin Dip Recipe

I knew moving my pumpkin pie spice to the front of the spice rack was going to come in handy one of these days soon! No – not for a pumpkin spice latte. While I *heart* that darn drink, I wanted to make a more literal pumpkin based recipe. And, OMG – am I glad I did! This sweet pumpkin dip recipe not only instantly shot to the top of my favorite desserts, it provided a little future inspiration for the Thanksgiving feast I’ve started planning out in my head. Yeah – you might say I’m a little early with my holiday meal prep. But food is what I do. And I love it!

Possible to Out-Pumpkin Pumpkin?

As far as desserts go, this sweet pumpkin dip recipe is a breeze to make. Velvety mascarpone, pumpkin puree and low-fat ricotta cheese all go in the blender with some of my favorite fall spices. Ground ginger and cinnamon bring an almost spicy element to the party. However, that’s tempered by the sweetness of a few tablespoons of maple syrup. As soon as the blender stopped whirring away, I got to dipping! I hope it doesn’t sound too dramatic to say that the flavor was a bit of a revelation. Is it possible to out-pumpkin pumpkin?

Get Your Dip On

The freewheeling premise behind this pumpkin dip recipe is that you can dip whatever you want in this sweet, fluffy whipped mixture. Feeling the pull of cookies or biscotti? They taste wonderful after a dip in this pumpkin mixture! Chocoholic? Nice! Me too. In fact, a less sweet dark chocolate plays so nicely with the sweet pumpkin spice laden mixture. More of a fruit-for-dessert kind of eater? Go for it! I can’t recommend dipping strawberries highly enough. In fact, the sweet and slightly-tart red berries were my favorite of all the delicious edible dipping utensils I tried with this pumpkin dip recipe.
