How to Make a Great Whipped Pumpkin Spice Dip
First off, you gotta decide. Are you going to go with some freshly made pumpkin puree or store-bought? Personally, I always go for store-bought unless I can’t find any in the store! I like to keep my recipes as simple as possible as a busy mom. But if you’re looking to make your own pumpkin puree, I’d check out this recipe!
Okay, now that you’ve decided which route you’re going to take, it’s time to begin.
Start by combining 1/2 cup of Pumpkin Puree with 5 oz softened or whipped cream cheese (I prefer whipped). If you go in with a hand mixer for this part (which I recommend), beat until light and fluffy.
Next, add 1/2 tbs of both ginger and cinnamon. Whip again.
Then fold in 1 cup of whipped cream. I used the spray can kind but you can also use Cool Whip for an even creamier consistency.
Then you’re done! You can serve it right away or tuck it away in the fridge if you were preparing it for a later event (like Thanksgiving).
The Key to Making a Good Dip for Desserts
My best tip for making a good dip is to use a hand mixer or stand mixer. This allows the dip to get really fluffy without the arm power that a whisk would take!
