  • Vegan cream cheese. This will serve as the base for pumpkin fruit dip. You can use your favorite store-bought product or make our vegan cream cheese recipe.
  • Pumpkin puree. Make sure to use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling.
  • Spices. You’ll need spices like cinnamon, ginger powder, and nutmeg to give this dip a warm and seasonal flavor.
  • Maple syrup. This adds sweetness to the fruit dip. You can also use brown or white sugar.

How to Make Pumpkin Fruit Dip

Homemade pumpkin fruit dip is extremely easy to make at home. You’ll need a food processor or blender, but you can also use an electric beater. Otherwise, a couple minutes of hand mixing and elbow grease should do the trick.

  1. Add all the ingredients to a food process or blender.

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • Use softened cream cheese. For best results, use softened cream cheese. This is especially important if you use store-bought cream cheese, which often turns semi-solid when chilled.
  • Scrape the ingredients as you blend them. To ensure the ingredients fully combine, scrape down the sides of the food processor in regular intervals.
  • Chill before serving. Although you can enjoy this dip immediately, the texture will be slightly better after it’s been chilled.
  • Add chocolate chips. For extra sweetness, mix in vegan chocolate chips. You can also add coconut flakes or chopped nuts.
