About This Recipe
Pumpkin Fluff is a fluffy and soft dessert or a dip that screams of fall in every bite. It is made using 5 ingredients and comes together in just 5 minutes.
Serve this no-bake recipe on its own as a dessert or with graham crackers, pretzels, or apple slices as a dip. It also makes for a great after-school snack for kids.
Pumpkin Puree – Use homemade pumpkin puree or buy a can. DO NOT use pumpkin pie spice. It has some additional ingredients which might not taste good in this recipe.
I always use my Homemade Pumpkin Puree for this recipe. It’s easy, free of preservatives and artificial flavors and colors, and much economical than the canned puree.
Pumpkin Pie Spice – I use my Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice as it’s super easy and economical. You can use the store-bought one too.
Vanilla Pudding Powder – It helps to set the dessert and also gives it a nice flavor.
Whipped Cream – Whip the cream at home or use ready-made whipped cream like cool-whip. If using frozen whipped topping, then make sure to thaw it.
Vanilla Extract – Add it for a lovely flavor.
How To Make Pumpkin Fluff

Yes, sure you can.
This fluff can be served as a dessert or a dip.
If serving as a dessert, you can serve it in small individual bowls. I like to pipe it in serving bowls for a nice look. You can sprinkle some ground cinnamon over it just before serving.
If serving as a dip, serve it in a large bowl and top with chopped toasted pecans and ground cinnamon.
Serve it with Graham Crackers, GingerSnaps, or even with Cookies like Chocolate Chip Cookies or Shortbread Cookies.
