What if I don’t have pumpkin spice?

Make homemade pumpkin spice easily with cinnamon, ginger, ground cloves, nutmeg and allspice. If you do a lot of baking with fall flavors, I highly recommend making homemade pumpkin spice.

You will save a bunch of money and it is very easy to mix together.

Tips for Success

  • Room temperature whipped cream. Make sure the cool whip is completely thawed and does not contain any frozen lumps.
  • Don’t overmix the dip. Combine until just mixed together.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you freeze this dip?

We don’t recommend freezing this dip as the texture will change. It will not be creamy after it has been frozen and may be watery.

Can you use homemade pumpkin puree?

Yes, homemade pumpkin puree is easy to use in this recipe. Simply substitute as normal when combining the ingredients.

Sometimes homemade puree has a higher water content so you may need to stir before serving.

What about homemade whipped cream?

Homemade whipped cream does not hold up as well as store bought whipped cream. It will deflate after a few hours.

Whereas store bought whipped cream helps the dip to maintain the best consistency and texture.

Can you make this in advance?

You can make this dip ahead of time. Prepare the ingredients and combine up to 24 hours in advance.

Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Can you make this dip sugar free?

Yes, you can substitute sugar free pudding and whipped cream in this pumpkin pie dip recipe. It is delicious and a variation to try if you need to reduce the sugar.
