Tips for the Best Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip

  • Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature before starting the mixing process. This helps it to blend more smoothly, helping you avoid lumps in your dip.
  • Gently fold in the Cool Whip by hand to keep the pumpkin dip light and fluffy! If your movements are too fast or vigorous, the mixture will collapse.
  • Don’t rush the chilling process! A minimum of 30 minutes is recommended so that the flavors meld together and you have the perfect dipping consistency. 
  • Unlike the cream cheese, you want your Cool Whip to be freshly chilled. Thaw the tub in the refrigerator and not at room temperature. If it’s runny, it will interfere with the texture of the pumpkin cheesecake dip.

Variations for Pumpkin Dip With Cool Whip

  • Crush up graham crackers and sprinkle the crumbs on top of the pumpkin pie cream cheese dip for a pumpkin pie-like dip.
  • Try dipping pretzels in this pumpkin cheesecake dip. The sweet, salty, and spicy combo is unforgettable. 
  • Experiment with different fruits — it’s a better combo than you’d think! I recommend trying oranges, limes, cranberries, pears, or apples.
  • Sometimes pumpkin spice is in high demand, and it’s hard to find. If that’s the case, or if you want a more personalized touch, you can create your own pumpkin spice blend using cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger!
  • Try pairing this dip with your favorite cookie! My go-to is Snickerdoodle because the cinnamon pairs perfectly with the pumpkin.

Can I Use Canned Whipped Cream Instead Of Cool Whip?

Yes, you can use canned whipped cream for this pumpkin cream cheese dip if you prefer.

Keep in mind that the Cool Whip provides a thicker texture, so the dip won’t be quite as fluffy as the whipped cream alternative!

Can I Make this Dip Vegan or Dairy-Free?

Yes, you can make this dip vegan AND dairy-free! It just takes a couple of substitutions. First, you’ll need to find a vegan cream cheese — I recommend Daiya and ​​Treeline Cream Cheese as alternatives.

Then, head over to the freezer section at the store and grab the Cool Whip brand’s coconut Cool Whip or So Delicious Coco Whip. That’s it!

Why Does My Pumpkin Dip Turn Watery After I Use It?

Any type of dip can get watery when you dunk fruits or veggies directly in the dip container and then re-refrigerate it for later. This happens because the moisture from the food sneaks into the dip, making it less thick and fluffy. 

To keep your dip on point, scoop some into a separate bowl for dipping instead of using the original container. That way, your dip can stay nice and delicious for your next snacking session.
