Ingredients in Pumpkin Pie Dip
Pumpkin – You will need a 15 ounce can of pumpkin. Make sure to use regular pumpkin puree, NOT pumpkin pie filling. I always use a canned option, but you can use a homemade pumpkin puree if you prefer.
Vanilla instant pudding mix – Make sure to use a large (5 oz) box of vanilla instant pudding mix. This provides tons of flavor and gives the dip the perfect consistency too.
Cool Whip – You will need a 16-ounce container of whipped topping. Make sure it is completely thawed before mixing with the other ingredients.
Pumpkin pie spice – A half tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice adds the perfect blend of spices to the pumpkin layer. Pumpkin pie spice is a delicious blend of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Easy to make your own if you don’t have any, but this spice is an absolute staple at my house in the fall – it seems like I use it in almost every recipe I make.
Cinnamon – There is already some cinnamon in the pumpkin pie spice, but a little extra cinnamon adds the perfect flavor to the dip.
How to make Pumpkin Dip with Cool Whip
Mix the vanilla pudding mix, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl until well blended and then fold in the Cool Whip and mix until creamy and smooth.
Chill for 2-3 hours before serving. I like to sprinkle a little bit of extra cinnamon on top of the dip, just for a little extra flavor and it looks pretty too! I think that graham crackers taste the best with this dip, but apples, bananas and Nilla wafers are wonderful too.

HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN PIE SPICE
This time of year it is really easy to find Pumpkin Pie Spice in most stores, but if you don’t have any on hand, it’s really simple to make your own! It is basically just a mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and ground cloves. To make enough for this recipe, you will need: 2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp ground ginger, and 1/4 tsp ground cloves. Mix it all together and use the required amount in the dip.
Can you replace the Cool Whip in pumpkin dip?
If you can’t find Cool Whip where you live or you prefer not to use it in recipes, you can use stabilized whipped cream instead. If you just use regular whipped cream, the consistency will be too light and the cream will not hold up very well when mixed into the jello salad. It’s very simple to make your own stabilized whipped cream and it just takes a few minutes!

To make stabilized whipped cream, you will need the following ingredients:
- 8 ounces of cream cheese (softened to room temperature)
- 2/3 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- Beat the cream cheese with the powdered sugar and vanilla until soft and smooth.
- In a separate bowl, beat the whipping cream just until soft peaks form.
- Add the cream cheese mixture to the whipped cream and beat until stiff peaks are formed. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
A little tip for making whipped cream faster. Use a metal bowl for whipping the cream and place the bowl in the freezer for about 30 minutes before you make the whipped cream. This will significantly decrease the amount of time that you will need to beat the whipped cream – the process will go much faster!
