This dairy-free pumpkin dip is one of the easier yet yummiest fall treats you can make. Your friends and family will love it at your next gathering!
Pumpkins have always been one of my favorite foods. In fact, I can remember asking my mom to bake me a pumpkin pie instead of a cake for my birthday one year when I was a child.
More than a decade ago, I discovered a pumpkin dip recipe that I began making and taking to any autumn party or get together. Back in 2011, one of the first posts I wrote for this blog was a probiotic version–made with yogurt.
For several years, my family was dairy-free, and I sadly had to go without my beloved pumpkin dip. I know many of you are also battling food allergies with your children or are dairy-free yourself.
I recently decided to try my hand and converting my old, beloved pumpkin dip recipe into a dairy-free pumpkin dip. I was delighted at the results, and I dare so, it’s even tastier (and healthier!) than the first one!
Without further ado, check out my new, improved recipe for pumpkin dip!
Dairy-Free Pumpkin Dip
- 2 cups (or one 15 oz. can) pumpkin puree
- 1 cup vanilla-flavored Silk almondmilk yogurt* (full of probiotics and great for overall health!)
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
- pumpkin pie spice, to taste
*Silk and SO Delicious both have a variety of dairy-free yogurts you can try if you have a nut allergy in your family. You do not have to use the almondmilk yogurt, but it’s my preferred choice.
- Combine pumpkin puree and yogurt. Add in spices.
- Serve with gingerbread or spice cookies.
- If you check out my original version of this dip, I included a full cup of honey. Other pumpkin dips call for a lot of sugar. Since this dairy-free pumpkin dip uses vanilla-flavored SILK almond milk yogurt, I didn’t add any additional sweetener. If you prefer a sweeter dip, by all means, add your sweetener of choice, but I felt that the yogurt added the perfect amount of sweetness.
- An an alternate to using this as a dip, you can even eat it by itself as a pudding.
- Or, try stirring the dip into oatmeal or use it to spice up pancakes, muffins, or breads.
