Pumpkin Whip Dip!

My roommate thinks I have a pumpkin obsession. Every time I come back from Target, I have a new can of pumpkin. I’ve made pumpkin cookies, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin spice creamer, and now pumpkin pie dip!

Last night, the ladies of Aspen Residence Hall had a ‘Girl’s Night In’ complete with chick flicks, nail polish, games, music, pajamas and snacks. Even though it was after dinner, I wanted to bring something healthy and light instead of dessert. So I made a Pumpkin Whip Dip with fruit dippers and it was a hit!

Pumpkin Whip Dip

1 1/4 Cups Tbs Lite Cool Whip (half of a container)

½ Can of Pumpkin

1  (6 oz.) Non-fat Plain Greek Yogurt

1 heaping Tbs cinnamon

1 1/2 tsp All-spice

Combine all of the ingredients, stir together and store in the freezer. It will get nice and solid!

Cut whatever fruit slices you like (I used Gala apples and De Ajou pears) into long strips for dipping. You could also use graham crackers or ginger snaps for an extra sweet treat ;)

It was the perfect balance next to the cookies and cupcakes!

After some ultra competitive but hilarious games, the feature presentation was What a Girl Wants. And naturally, we painted our nails Glow in the Dark…..

By keeping away from the dessert table and sticking to a healthy snack, I felt great at this morning’s workout! I hit the gym with a fellow cross country teammate to feel the burn with some weight training. Let the fun of a Girl’s Night be in the company you are with, not the junk food you mindlessly eat.

  1. This sounds like the perfect combo of healthy, sweet, and delicious! This would be perfect for a Halloween party… maybe with a little food coloring? :).

  2. Pumpkin dip will make everything taste 300x better; thanks for sharing the recipe:)

  3. Your “girls night in” is EXACTLY what you college girls should be doing! So glad you had a blast!!!! This dip sounds amazing and I’m shocked we never made it while you were home. I think I’ll make it for our dinner with the Pechan’s. The men will want their “dippers” of the graham crackers and ginger snaps though. LOL
    Keep up the FANTASTIC blog – love it!!!!

  4. You have to try pumpkin pancakes! There should be some good recipes out there! If you can’t find one I’ll be more than happy to send you mine :)
