How Do I Make This Pumpkin Fluff Recipe?

You’re going to love how simple this pumpkin whip recipe is to prepare. That’s because there’s no baking involved and only three steps to follow! To make your own pumpkin fluff at home, just follow these easy instructions.

Step One: Combine the Pumpkin Fluff Ingredients

To prepare pumpkin fluff dip, you should start by stirring together the vanilla pudding mix, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice until well blended. Continue stirring until all the pudding mixture is fully dissolved.

Step Two: Add the Whipped Topping

Once the pumpkin mixture is smooth and well combined, carefully fold in the whipped topping. Make sure not to whip or over-mix the topping because it could cause the cream to separate. Once the whipped topping is mixed in, your dip is ready to serve.

Step Three: Stir Everything Together

Grab the bowl with the dry ingredients and add it to the pumpkin mixture, stirring until the ingredients are just combined. After that, stir in the nuts, making sure not to over-mix the banana bread ingredients.

What Can I Serve with Pumpkin Fluff?

The beauty of this quick and easy dip recipe is that you can serve it with a variety of snacks! Add some sweet dippers to create a simple dessert. Or serve with some salty snacks for a delicious combination of sweet and salty.

These dippers are perfect for serving with your pumpkin fluff dip:

  • Fruit. The delicious combination of whipped topping and pumpkin make this recipe perfect for fruit! Try serving your fluff with sliced apples, strawberries, or melon wedges. You could even serve your pumpkin fluff with dried fruit, like banana chips, for a quick snack.
  • Cookies. Another sweet option for serving with your dip is cookies. Add some cinnamon or honey graham crackers, Nilla wafers, Oreos, gingersnaps, or chocolate chip cookies to the serving tray to create an easy dessert for your next get-together.
  • Crackers. For a sweet and salty snack, try serving your dip with crackers. Look for neutral flavored crackers when serving your pumpkin fluff, like Club crackers or Wheat Thins, for the best flavor combination.
  • Pretzels. You can also satisfy your sweet and salty cravings by serving your pumpkin whip with pretzels. Hard pretzel sticks, sourdough pretzels, or even soft pretzel bites are all great options for creating a delicious fall snack.

Is Pumpkin Fluff Good for Weight Watchers?

It can be difficult to find a yummy sweet snack when you’re on Weight Watchers. Luckily, this recipe for pumpkin fluff is perfect for anyone on this popular diet program. There are just a few adjustments you’ll need to make to ensure your dip has the least number of points possible.

  • Use nonfat instant pudding. Skip the regular pudding for this Weight Watchers recipe to help reduce the fat content in your dip. Instead, make sure you mix in nonfat instant vanilla pudding when making your WW dessert.
  • Fold in fat free whipped topping. It’s also important that you use fat free whipped topping if you’re making this recipe for Weight Watchers. This will help reduce the points value of the final recipe even further.

Since pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice are already zero point foods, there’s no need to make any more adjustments to the recipe to make it Weight Watchers friendly!

How Do You Store Pumpkin Fluff?

I’d be surprised if you have any of this dip leftover after you serve it! But if you do have some extra dip on hand after your party, it should be stored in the refrigerator. Transfer the leftover dip to an airtight container and keep it refrigerated. It will stay good for up to four days. Before serving the leftover dip, it may need to be stirred to remix the ingredients together.

Why Is My Pumpkin Fluff Gritty?

Since this recipe is made with powdered instant pudding, pumpkin fluff can become gritty if it’s not mixed well. The key to getting a smooth texture in your dip is thoroughly mixing the instant pudding into the pumpkin.

If you’re worried about the texture being too gritty, try using a hand mixer to blend the pumpkin and pudding together. The two ingredients should be mixed until the pudding is fully dissolved. If you see any flakes or chunks of pudding, continue mixing until the powder is no longer visible.
