About Pumpkin Fluff
Pumpkin Fluff Dip is a fluffy and soft dessert dip that screams fall in every bite. This no-bake dip is made using 5 ingredients and comes together in just 5 minutes.
Serve this pumpkin dip on its own 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.

Pumpkin Puree – Use homemade pumpkin puree or buy a 15 oz can. DO NOT use pumpkin pie filling. 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 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 to set the dessert and also 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.
