This cream cheese pumpkin dip recipe is a huge hit with our family! Since Thanksgiving is only a few days away now, I have been trying to put together my menu plan so I can have everything I need without emergency trips to the store. Am I the only one that does that?
Cream Cheese Pumpkin Dip Recipe
We like to have a few different desserts for people to choose from after the big meal is over. Since not everyone is a huge fan of pie, we try to include a few other options like this yummy dip recipe.
One reason that I really love serving a dip recipe is that it’s so versatile. When you serve this cream cheese pumpkin dip recipe, you can serve it with apple slices, pretzels, biscotti, or these fun O Organics® Chocolate Animal Cookies.
Cream cheese pumpkin dip without Cool Whip
So, you will notice that I make this cream cheese pumpkin dip without Cool Whip. I am not a big fan of whipped toppings. And, I much prefer the way the cream cheese flavors this pumpkin dip recipe.
Healthy pumpkin cheese dip
Now, you can go as heavy or as light on the chocolate chips as you want to. My husband has a huge sweet tooth so the chocolate chips are a must for him. I use the whole cup full when I’m making it for him to enjoy. If it’s me and the kids, I use a little bit less. If you want to, you can completely leave out the chocolate chips. It’s not necessary if you want to watch your sugar levels. You can also cut down the sugar amount if you prefer.
What to serve with pumpkin dip
I try to make sure that we have one gluten-free option for my daughter and apple slices go perfectly with this easy dip recipe. You can also pick up gluten-free cookies, pretzels, or animal crackers if you prefer. You can also make these gluten-free animal crackers. Get the easy recipe right here. Or, I have totally sat down with a spoon and eaten this dessert as is. Here are a few more healthy dipping options.
No matter what you use to dip, you’ll want to serve this with a big cup of O Organics® Medium Roast Guatemalan coffee. I love this stuff! It’s USDA organic, fair trade certified and non-GMO. It’s 100% delicious arabica coffee.
O Organics® products are available in my area exclusively at Shaws. I love knowing that there is an affordable organic brand that I can trust for both quality and taste. I love shopping at Shaws because I can save money with the MyMixx app on my phone. Make sure you check there when you’re shopping for ingredients for this cream cheese pumpkin dip.

And, you can also create this recipe using your favorite dairy-free cream cheese. I know that we have a soy variety in our grocery store.
