Pumpkin Mousse Dip


Stop the press!  The easiest way in the world to get your kids to eat fruit for dessert is this dip…they go crazy for it!

And adults love it too.  It’s creamy and smooth and has a hint of pumpkin and maple syrup…autumn in a dip…

And this is another one of those recipes that only takes a few minutes to make, which makes it perfect to take along to any dinner party.  No pre-party stress about what to bring and how long it’ll take to make it!IMG_7389Here’s what you’ll need…

  • 6 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin, canned
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

That’s it…half a cuppa, half a cuppa, half a cuppa, half a teaspoona…and 6 ounce-a

Important: Beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy in stand-mixer. If you do not, you’ll end up with little dots of cream cheese throughout your dip, which will make it look unappetizing.


Add pumpkin, with mixer still on, then maple syrup.  Add brown sugar and cinnamon and mix until creamy and smooth and free of lumps. ALL DONE!


Serve it with whatever suits your fancy, or your guests fancy, or your kids fancy…apple and pear slices, cinnamon graham crackers, mini rice krispie treats, teddy grahams, popcorn balls (wait, is that going too far?!)
