Love and Confections: Pumpkin Pie Dip for #PumpkinWeek

October 25, 2014

Pumpkin Pie Dip for #PumpkinWeek

Pumpkin Pie Dip is a great alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie. Cool, creamy, and perfect for any gathering of family and friends.



Today is day 6 and the end of #PumpkinWeek. I have loved celebrating all things pumpkin with my Food Blogging friends. Tomorrow is National Pumpkin Day and I hope you have enjoyed all the recipes we have shared this week. In addition to homemade pumpkin puree, pie, and cookies, we have also shared some savory pumpkin dishes like hummus, chili and pumpkin corn chowder. You can also find these great recipes and more on Love and Confections' #PumpkinWeek Pinterest Board!


If you look through Pinterest, you will see hundreds of versions of this dip. There are so many different ingredients and ways to make this dip, and I wanted to do something different. I decided to add one of my new favorite treats to the mix.


Stonyfield Organic recently introduced a new line of product called Petite Creme. It is similar in texture to Greek yogurt, but is not tangy. Petite Creme is sweet and smooth, just the way I like my yogurt. They have some fabulous flavors and I love them all! The Vive la Vanilla Stonyfield Petite Creme was just what I needed for this dip. The vanilla flavor goes great with the pumpkin pie spice and the smoothness and creaminess of the yogurt helps it not get too firm after refrigeration. All-in-all, I think I created a great, and very easy, recipe and I hope you make it and share it with family and friends.

Until next time,
