A lightly sweet dip to liven up your holiday buffet. This dip is not your usual ranch or French onion dip that you often find on a holiday table – this dip is creamy and fluffy and great with crackers, chips or even fruit.
To begin, you’ll mix together 16 ounces of solid packed pumpkin, 6 ounces of plain Greek yogurt and 1/2 cup brown sugar.
Now for the flavoring – add in a teaspoon each of vanilla and cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon each of nutmeg and allspice, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, and 1/8 teaspoon of cloves. Stir those in until combined.
In a mixing bowl, beat 4 ounces of whipping cream with 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar.
Beat the cream until nice and fluffy with stiff peaks.
Fold the whipped cream into the pumpkin mixture.
Chill for an hour or more to let the flavors meld together.
Serve with cut fruit, grapes, crackers or chips.
This can also be made with sweet potato puree instead of pumpkin. You can also fold in some finely chopped pecans for some texture.
