About Pumpkin Pie Hummus

Pumpkin Pie Dessert Hummus is a mildly sweet dip perfect for fall parties or Thanksgiving dinners. It has the rich taste of pumpkin pie and a creamy dessert-like texture.

It is popularly sold by Boar’s Head, a supplier of delicatessen meats, cheeses, and condiments.

My pumpkin pie hummus comes together in just 10 minutes using simple ingredients and tastes just like the one sold by Boar’s Head.

This vegan, oil-free, and gluten-free dessert dip will surely remind you of pumpkin pie minus the crust!

Unlike most other desserts, this fall favorite sweet hummus is super healthy, too. You can enjoy it as your mid-day snack or serve it to your kids as an after-school snack with sliced fruits, graham crackers, or baked pita chips.

This sweet pumpkin pie hummus recipe serves 4 but can be doubled or tripled.

Ingredients

Pumpkin Pie Hummus Ingredients.

Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans) – Use no salt or low-sodium canned chickpeas. Drain and rinse before using.

If cooking chickpeas from scratch, soak them in water for 6-8 hours and then cook them in a traditional pressure cooker or instant pot. Just make sure to cook the raw chickpeas only with water.

Tahini – It adds a subtle earthy flavor to the dip! You can replace tahini with other nut butter like cashew butter, pistachio butter, or almond butter.

Pumpkin Puree – Use pumpkin puree and NOT pumpkin pie filling. Make puree at home using my easy Pumpkin Puree recipe, or buy a can.

Pumpkin Pie Spice – Make my homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice or buy a bottle. This spice mix is made using a combination of warm spices.

Maple Syrup – It is a dessert dip and tastes good only when a decent amount of sweetener is added to it. I used maple syrup, but you can use honey or brown sugar too.

Vanilla Extract – It makes the taste even better with its aroma and flavor.

How To Make Pumpkin Pie Hummus

Place

  • 1 15 oz can chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
  • ½ cup tahini
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup water

in the bowl of a food processor or blender.

All the ingredients added to a blender.

Blend until smooth. Scrape the sides of the blender a few times while blending.

Note – Add some more water while blending if the hummus is too thick for your liking.

Do a little taste test to see if you want to add more spice or extra sweetness to get your desired flavor.

Refrigerate the hummus for at least an hour.

Transfer it to a serving bowl and garnish with maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice, toasted pepitas, and chocolate chips.

Serve it chilled or at room temperature with apple slices of graham crackers.

Frequently Asked Questions

What else can be added to this pumpkin pie dessert hummus recipe?

Replace water with coconut milk or almond milk for a taste change.

Adding a bit of citrus zest, such as orange or lemon zest, can provide a refreshing twist to the hummus. The zest adds a bright, aromatic note that complements the pumpkin flavor.

Serving Suggestions

My favorite way of snacking on Pumpkin Pie Hummus is with apple slices. It also tastes great with graham crackers, cheese crackers, pretzels, crunchy cookies like Gingersnap, or cinnamon sugar pita chips.

This dip makes for a great Thanksgiving dessert with all these delicious accompaniments.

Storage Suggestions

It is a great make-ahead dip that can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week.

Use a clean and dry container with a tight-fitting lid, and use a clean and dry spoon to take out the dip.

While it is possible to freeze pumpkin spice hummus, the texture, and consistency may change once it thaws. It tends to become slightly grainy and watery after being frozen and then thawed.
