Pumpkin Fluff Dip Ingredients
The ingredients are basic pantry and freezer staples in the fall in my house. If these aren't staples at your place, start stocking these items.
- Canned Pumpkin - Canned pumpkin puree is a glorious thing. Now, if you want to buy a pumpkin and cook it, be my guest. That isn't me. Be sure you don't accidentally buy the pumpkin pie puree.
- Instant Vanilla Pudding - You just want the powder. Regular vanilla pudding is fine but I always have French vanilla on hand because it seems just a bit more flavorful to me.
- Cool Whip - The frozen whipped topping is key here. The real dairy stuff will collapse in this recipe.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice - The premade pumpkin pie spice is very handy. It combines cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger perfectly. Feel free to just combine those four spices too.
To make sugar-free pumpkin fluff, use sugar free whipped topping and pudding. This is not a low-carb recipe since the pumpkin has quite a few carbs in it.

What to serve with Pumpkin Fluff Dip
The pumpkin fluff dip obviously needs a vehicle to get into your mouth. Obviously, a spoon would work just fine but here a few other ideas of what to serve the pumpkin fluff with to eat it.
- Graham Crackers- Whether the traditional graham crackers or the graham crackers sticks or even the Teddy Grahams, the traditional honey graham flavor is perfect with the pumpkin fluff.
- Vanilla Wafers - If you aren't a fan of graham crackers, try vanilla wafers instead. I would even recommend those thin layered vanilla wafer cookies with this dip too.
- Ginger Snaps - Ginger snap cookies are a perfect flavor pairing with pumpkin as well. After all, ginger is in pumpkin pie spice
- Apple Slices - Go the fruit route to dip into this pumpkin pie dip with sliced apples or even sliced pears.
Even if you have diet allergies - this fluff dip is gluten-free and dairy-free as long as you use a dairy-free whipped topping like cool whip. So make sure if you want to remain diet friendly to think about this with your choice of dipping tools
Pumpkin Fluff Topping Variations
You can keep the garnish for this pumpkin fluff dip simple or complex. Here are a few of my recommendations to take this fluff over the top.
- Whipped Cream - Who can resist whipped topping? No one in my family. Hit the middle of this bowl of dip with whipped topping and watch it disappear.
- Spices - Pumpkin Pie Spice is an easy sprinkling to the top. But just cinnamon is amazing too. Just dust the pumpkin fluff before serving.
- Chocolate chips - If you love chocolate and pumpkin, sprinkle a handful of mini chocolate chips over the whipped cream and pumpkin fluff.
- Ice Cream Sauces - Caramel, hot fudge, and butterscotch sauces are all perfect on this pumpkin dip too.
Storing Pumpkin Fluff Dip
Store the leftover in the serving bowl covered in shrink wrap or press and seal. Also transferring it to a sealable container is recommended. Keep up to three days.
These ingredients don't stand up well to freezing and thawing back out. If you want a frozen pumpkin treat, this recipe would be great to put between graham crackers and freeze for an ice cream like treat.
