We’re all about the fluff recipes and have had fun making everything from peach fluff to Oreo fluff. However, pumpkin season is right around the corner so we thought we should try a pumpkin fluff recipe for the fall. It was every bit as good as I expected.

In case you’re not familiar with fluff dip recipes, they’re a light whipped dessert that usually contains pudding, whipped topping, and fruit. This version replaces the fruit with sweet pumpkin and plenty of fall spices for a sweet, creamy, and comforting fall dessert.

With just four ingredients, this dip is super easy to make, and even better, doesn’t require any baking. You can make this recipe for anything from a fancy dinner to a Halloween party dip to an easy weeknight dessert. Serve it with graham crackers, gingersnaps, fruit or cookies for a delicious versatile treat.

Tips & Tricks

  • You can substitute either white chocolate or cheesecake flavor instant pudding in place of the vanilla instant pudding mix, if needed.
  • Stir in some mini marshmallows, chocolate or white chocolate chips, or banana slices for extra flavor and texture.
  • If serving this in individual dessert cups, you can add some fresh whipped cream and caramel sauce on top for an extra delicious and fancy garnish.

How Do I Store Pumpkin Fluff?

Store your leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.

Can I Use Pumpkin Pie Filling Instead of Puree?

You can, but you should omit the pumpkin spice, as the pumpkin pie filling already contains spices.
