Skinny Pumpkin Pie Dip

Skinny Pumpkin Pie Dip

For the last two years I have made this seasonal dip. It is super quick, doesn’t call for a lot of ingredients and offers up some fab, fall-themed presentation for your guests. But the best part is  it tastes like you are indulging in decadent pumpkin pie with whipped topping laced into every bite.

This dip is also wicked flexible. It keeps for up to a week in the fridge so I used it as a topping for Camden’s breakfast waffles, iced vanilla cupcakes with it as a healthier frosting alternative, and ate way too much of it with a spoon—parfait style.

This recipe is derived from here but I’ve tweaked it a little bit so the sugar and calories are reduced even further without loosing the taste. Makes 12, 1/2 cup servings.

Ingredients

  • 15 oz can pumpkin (I use Trader Joe’s Organic canned pumpkin)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar In The Raw
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 6 oz fat free VANILLA Greek yogurt (Chiobani now makes a 100 Calorie Vanilla option with no artificial sweeteners!)
  • 9 oz Skinny Truwhip (I use this because it doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils).
  • 1 small Pie Pumpkin
  • 3 Apples (I used the Honey Crisp variety)

Directions:

Mix pumpkin with brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon.
