I have two words for you: Pumpkin. Spice.
Something about that combination of creamy, tangy pumpkin and warm, robust spices just screams “AUTUMN IS HERE!!!” and puts everyone in a better mood while giving them the warm fuzzies inside. Okay, so maybe those last two are pushing the boundaries of wishful thinking, but you get my point, right? Fall just wouldn’t be fall without a little bit of pumpkin spice.
I hosted a small dinner party on Sunday evening and decided to jump on the pumpkin spice bandwagon with a dessert dip that was inspired by my walk past a display of spiced wafers. The black and orange boxes spoke to me and that was it — pumpkin spice dip it would be!
This dip is just the right amount of sweet and spicy, but not so much so that you can’t taste the star of the show — the pumpkin. And perhaps the best part: it takes literally seconds to prepare!
Here’s what you’ll need to make it:
- 1 16-oz. can pumpkin puree
- 4 oz. vegan cream cheese
- 1/4 cup agave
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp. allspice
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. (I went the lazy route and whizzed it around it my Vitamix a few times).
- Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.
- Serve with spiced wafers or cinnamon pita chips.
That’s all there is to it! This dip will satisfy your pumpkin spice craving and is super quick and easy to throw together in a pinch for a last-minute, festive get-together.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
