Easy Pumpkin Dessert

Looking for a quick appetizer or dessert for Thanksgiving? This Pumpkin Fluff fits the bill. I wouldn't classify myself as a pumpkin lover. I don't want to eat pumpkin pie, but I enjoy pumpkin baked into other treats. I was worried about trying this dip because the pumpkin isn't cooked. I put all my faith into the pudding mix and cool whip. They didn't let me down! This was great.

This is also an easy recipe to lighten up with sugar-free pudding and fat-free cool whip. I know we are all watching our waistlines grow during the holidays! I served this with gingersnaps, but It would also be good with graham crackers or apples.

  5. Has anyone tried any kind of substitute for Cool Whip? It is full of so many undesirable things! Would homemade whipped cream stand up to being mixed with the pumpkin?

    1. I haven't tried this with anything but Cool Whip. If you try whipped cream, let us know how it turns out.

  9. Did you use pumpkin pie mix/filling, or simply pumpkin? And could you substitute regular pudding mix for the instant? Thanks!

    1. I used pumpkin purée not pie filling. You can try regular pudding, not sure how it will work. I've never tried it.
