Pumpkin Dip Recipes Anyone Can Make

How to make savory pumpkin dip

While many people prefer sweet pumpkin dishes, I LOVE a savory pumpkin dip with just a hint of sweetness.

There are so many ways to make a savory dip! You always start with pumpkin which you can mix with many of your favorite spices to make delicious dips for any occasion. Here are just a few ideas:

1. Pumpkin and cream cheese dip

This is a nice one to offer guests when they arrive. It looks like you have gone to some trouble, but it takes literally a couple of minutes to make.

Chopping the vegetable sticks takes the longest: if you’re really pressed for time just use crackers.


  • Approx. 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • Approx. ½ tub of cream cheese (you can use something special like a tasty creamy goats cheese if you like)
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder (to taste) or use a dessert spoon of sweet chili sauce.

Mix all ingredients together in a blender.

Have a taste, and adjust the chili if you need to. Start with a little, as it’s easier to add more than taking it out! Am I stating the obvious? Oops.

Serve with carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, celery, olives, crackers, whatever you fancy!

2. Pumpkin hummus dip

This is so quick to make you can be curled up in front of the TV with it on your knee in no time. If you use some pumpkin that was roasted in the oven it will add to the flavor.

Enjoy with your favorite crackers, pita bread, on toast or in a wrap with salad.

Add some toasted pumpkin seeds for some crunch.


Pumpkin hummus dip is delicious, yet very easy to make. Impress your guests this Thanksgiving with this unique appetizer. Cream cheese mixes perfectly with chili and garbanzo beans to make a flavorful dip for any occasion. #veggiedip #fallrecipes #partyrecipes #Thanksgiving #christmasrecipes #christmasappetizers

How to make sweet pumpkin dip

Pumpkin desserts and all the rage during the fall season. And while I like pumpkin pie a few times during the season, I’d rather experiment with new tastes.

Making sweet pumpkin dip is as easy as mixing your pumpkin puree whit some powdered sugar, cream cheese, whipped cream, cinnamon or any of your favorite fall flavors.

See my recipe below for a very simple sugary pumpkin dip.
