For people who love pumpkin pie but don't want the hassle of making it! Here is another nutrition dense food that you will love and it will love you back. Have all the luxury of a pumpkin pie without all the fuss. Use apple and pear slices to scoop up the dip or use graham crackers. I made my own pumpkin pie spice mix using freshly grated nutmeg, ground cloves, and ground allspice (I used my mortar and pestle so I could have some spice chunks still in it). Store-bought pumpkin pie spice is fine though.
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings. (For those who like more spice add another tablespoon of pie spice or add more cinnamon.) Serve at room temperature or chill and serve cold.
Serve with apple and pear slices.
*Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix
2 TBS. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg (use store-bought ground nutmeg if you need to but I promise once you try freshly ground, you’re never going back)
