There was a point in time where every single family gathering of mine included a big bowl of pumpkin dip and apple slices. We’d hover around the bowl and graze for hours before dinner was served. And then barely be able to touch our meals because of the pumpkin dip baby in our bellies.
Our familial pumpkin dip consumption has tapered a bit in the past few years, but my love for it has stayed steady. The original recipe is incredible and delicious, but over the years, I’ve tweaked it a bit to make it a little more suitable to my personal tastes. Which means: more pumpkin, less sugar, and a nice dose of protein-rich Greek yogurt.
In the fall, we like to keep a constant supply of this stuff in the fridge. Combined with some Honeycrisp apple slices and it’s pretty much my favorite October afternoon snack. It also rocks as a topping for oatmeal and pancakes. And if you are feeling particularly Cass-like, go at the stuff with a spoon and just call it “pumpkin pudding”. Go big or go home, kids.
