Ingredients for Pumpkin Dip

HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN FLUFF DIP WITH VANILLA PUDDING

First, make a grocery list and pick up;

  • 15-oz Pumpkin Puree (NOT Pumpkin Pie Filling)

  • 8-oz Lite Cool Whip

You will also need pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, and pure vanilla extract. (Note that ingredient amounts are in the recipe card below!)

pumpkin puree and vanilla pudding mix in a mixing bowl.

  1. In a large bowl combine pumpkin puree and vanilla pudding mix.
  2. Add pumpkin pie spice, ground nutmeg, and vanilla extract; stir and mix until well combined.
  3. Fold in the whipped topping; continue to fold until everything is thoroughly incorporated.
  4. Cover and chill for 2 hours, or until cold.
  5. Serve with fruit, cookies, pretzels, etc… I like it best with apples and pretzels. 🥰 

Note: IF you are totally opposed to using Cool Whip – I know many are – you can go ahead and make your own fresh whipped cream.

  1. The taste is amazing but the consistency is a little too hard. How can I soften it up without loosing the flavor?

  2. My son made this using a small pumpkin instead of the canned purée. He cut the pumpkin in half and it in his new smoker! Puréed it after cooking, added the ingredients listed & used each half of the pumpkin as a serving bowl. Served with Vanilla Wafers! Ah-maze-ing!!!

  3. I’m looking forward to making this. I did run into a problem with the ingredients, though. Jell-O instant sugar-free fat-free vanilla putting mix only comes in 1 ounce and 1.5 ounce sizes. I suspect you are referring to the four serving box, which is one ounce. The same size box with sugar weighs 3.4 oz. (it weighs more because of the sugar). Please confirm the pudding size. Thanks much!

      Hi! I think the one I use is 3.4 oz (the big box) but you can just use two of the 1.5 oz boxes. It won’t make that big of a difference if you use a bit less than 3.4 oz.

      1. hi 🙂 I only could find 1 oz for the sugar free. can I use 3.4 oz of not sugar free or will that make it too thick?

          Hi!
          Yeah, that will work and won’t make it too thick. It’ll just add some sugar. 😊 You can also just buy 3 of the 1-ounce sugar-free packets and use all three in the recipe.

        I have a silly question, do I actually make the vanilla pudding or do I just add the powder to the pumpkin?

        1. Not silly at all! I thought the same thing the first time I was going to make it. ☺️
          But, yeah, just mix in the powder – no need to make the pudding.

  4. What a delicious recipe, and perfect for fall! Looking forward to making this again and again this season!
