About Pumpkin Fluff

Pumpkin Fluff Dip is a fluffy, soft dessert dip that screams fall in every bite. This no-bake dip is made using 5 ingredients.

Serve this pumpkin dip as a dessert or with graham crackers, pretzels, gingersnap cookies, or apple slices as a dip. It also makes for a great after-school snack for kids.

My pumpkin fluff dip recipe serves 6, but you can easily double or triple it if making for a crowd.

Ingredients

Pumpkin Fluff Ingredients.

Pumpkin Puree – Use homemade pumpkin puree or buy a 15 oz can. DO NOT use pumpkin pie filling. It has some additional ingredients that 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 more economical than 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.

Instant Vanilla Pudding Powder – It helps set the dessert and gives it a nice flavor. Make sure it is the instant pudding version and not the cook-and-serve. 

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.

You can also fold in some mini marshmallows into the pumpkin fluff recipe.

How To Make Pumpkin Fluff

Whisk together

  • 1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin puree
  • 3.5 oz (100 g) instant vanilla pudding powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

in a large mixing bowl using a wire whisk or a hand mixer.

Pumpkin puree, vanilla pudding mix, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract added to a bowl.

Fold 8 oz (225 g) whipped cream in 2-3 batches into the pumpkin mixture.

Whipped cream added to the bowl.

Cover the bowl with a cling wrap and chill for 2-3 hours.

Transfer the pudding into small serving bowls or glasses. Sprinkle with some ground cinnamon and serve chilled.

Tip – You can fill the fluff in a piping bag fitted with a large nozzle and pipe it into the serving bowls for a neat look.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I substitute for pumpkin pie spice?

Mix ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon and ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg and use it in place of pumpkin pie spice.

Can I use the light or fat-free version of instant vanilla pudding mix and whipped topping to make pumpkin fluff?

Yes, sure, you can.

Serving Suggestions

This fluff can be served as a dessert or a dip for a fall party or holiday dinner.

If serving as a dessert, you can serve it in small individual bowls. I like to pipe this perfect fall dessert 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, ginger snaps, vanilla wafers, animal crackers, chocolate chip cookies, or shortbread cookies.

You can also serve it as a snack with apple slices, berries, or any other fruit you want to enjoy.

Add some M&M’s, crushed graham crackers, or mini marshmallows to the dip for a texture change.

Storage Suggestions

Leftover dip can be refrigerated in an airtight container for 2-3 days.

I do not recommend freezing it.

Notes

Whipped Cream – I whip the cream from scratch. Chill the heavy cream overnight. Add some confectioner’s sugar and vanilla extract and whip using an electric blender until stiff peaks are formed. You can also use canned whipped cream or even cool whip.
If using frozen whipped topping, then make sure to thaw it.
You can add mini marshmallows or m&m’s to this dip.
