Easy Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip made with light cream cheese, canned pumpkin, brown sugar, maple syrup, and cinnamon tastes just pumpkin pie filling without the baking or guilt. Plus you can make it with things you probably already have in your pantry and fridge.

There is so much to love about this simple Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip. First of all, it truly only takes about 5 minutes to make and it tastes just like a creamy pumpkin pie filling without all the calories or time spent baking a whole pie. It's perfect for fall and if you are a lover of all things pumpkin, like me, then this recipe should be added to your list immediately.

Another thing I love about this recipe, and about dip recipes in general, is that it is a great way to get adults and kids alike to eat more fresh fruit and veggies. I made this for my kids when they came home from school the other day and they ate four apples in a matter of minutes. Now truth be told, my son did ask where the crust was, but that was only because it tastes so much like pumpkin pie. 

In terms of serving this yummy dip, there are so many options. Usually I like to serve it with fresh apple slices, but it also pairs great with pears, grapes, carrots, celery, and even crispy jicama. You can also serve it with graham crackers, pita chips, pretzels, or whole grain crackers. And if you want to get really festive and creative, serve it in a hollowed out pumpkin with Halloween or Thanksgiving shaped tortilla chips. Just cut out the shapes using cookie cutter and tortillas and then bake them up in the oven.
