Fiber-rich Snack Idea: How to Make Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip!

If you like the flavor of pumpkin pie, you’ll love this dip. By adding pumpkin, you also boost the nutrition, especially the fiber. And this dip is naturally gluten-free! 

You'll need:

  • 8 ounces plain full-fat cream cheese, softened 
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree 
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger 
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

Here's how you make it:

  1. Using a hand mixer, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. 
  2. Mix in other ingredients. 
  3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving. Makes 2 cups.

You can serve it on toast or English muffins with raisins and Cheerios so your kids can make faces. It’s also good as a dip for pretzels (think salty with sweet) or sliced apples and would be great on a muffin, too. Remember, when you keep key ingredients on hand the preparation becomes simple!
