healthy pumpkin pie dip recipeWe have a lot of parties and get togethers at my house. My love language is cooking for people, so I love having lots of friends and family for dinner. I try to do it at least a few times a month. Usually that includes a lot of children too. The key to having little people over and them being happy is to feed them well. And often. I set a cute kids table and make them their own special appetizer tray. Grapes, Goldfish, cheese, strawberries, olives. It doesn’t have to be fancy, and usually, I just pull stuff from my pantry. The important part of this is to make it look special. My healthy pumpkin pie dip is perfect for the kid’s table. They love it, it tastes just like pumpkin pie! Having their own appetizer makes them feel like they are a part of the party too. Coincidentally, a lot of the adults gravitate away from the baked brie, and head over to dip a graham cracker or two.

I have partnered with Mountain High Yoghurt to create some recipes using their yogurt, you will be seeing them over the next few months. I love the idea of a dip. It is super easy, it takes about 3 minutes to make, and kids (and adults) love to have something to dip their food into. There are lots of versions of this dip out there, but most include Cool Whip and cream cheese, which is delicious, but sometimes we want a less decadent option. Using yoghurt results in a healthier version that does not lack in flavor one bit.

    Yay the first to comment that has tried this. First thank you Bree because I am on a clean eating (calorie controlled) healthy lifestyle and I love recipes that cater to my lifestyle. I saw this in my email and I had a small container of OIKOS greek yogurt and the other ingredients. I had to cut out the brown sugar as I am diabetic but I subbed 1 1/2 tbsp of agave nectar. I tried it and it was awesome. It is awesome for fall because I love buying canned pumpkin and this is a fun way to use it. Tastes aewsome and I plan to make again especially for upcoming gatherins! Thanks for the ideas and so healthy! :) Happy Autumn!

      I so glad that you liked this dip. I should have mentioned that you could use an alternative sugar. Honey would be good too.

    Don’t you love it that you post a delicious recipe, and then we all start customizing it? I just loved this (I didn’t use it as a dip, I just ATE it). I substituted a tablespoon of Splenda brown sugar blend for the 1/4 cup brown sugar, and threw in some nutmeg, orange peel and allspice. Yum.
