Creamy Pumpkin Dip #SundaySupper

This week’s #SundaySupper is all about everything orange! The color orange seems to be synonymous with fall so I knew I wanted to participate in this week’s challenge.

I actually had a hard time deciding what to make but since I had made Pumpkin Waffles this past weekend, I had some leftover pumpkin and a nice dip seemed like a great way to use it up.  With just five simple ingredients it was super quick too. Let me tell you, this dip is fantastic! Just a hint of sweetness and with the apples, wonderful! Before I knew it I had eaten nearly a whole apple with this dip. I hope you’ll give it a try…it would be great on your fall holiday tables too as a healthier snack option. Enjoy!

  • ¾ C cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ C brown sugar
  • ¾ C pureed pumpkin
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 T cinnamon

Leftover pumpkin…what to do, what to do?

Just a few simple ingredients is all it takes to whip up this easy dip!

Mixing it up…make sure your cream cheese is really softened so it blends well, You can also use a mixer to blend it all.

If you’re not familiar with #SundaySupper, the idea is that we all need to take the time, even if it’s just once a week, to get back to the family dinner table and share our time with family. For generations before ours, it was a weekly tradition and it’s something that we hope to make a tradition once again in households across the globe. I cannot tell you how excited I am to check out everyone else’s posts this week—the previews I was seeing were enough to get my mouth watering. Take some time to explore all these other bloggers and their all-things-orange recipes.

Our whole family eats tons of fresh sliced apples in the fall. We love them, esp fresh from the local orchard! This would be a fun treat to serve one evening with the apples.

Before diabetes, I used to make a pumpkin dip and serve it in a hollowed out pumpkin with gingersnaps as dippers. Sadly, it contained a ton of powdered sugar and I haven't made it in ages. Your version looks more like something I could actually eat. Thanks!
