Foodie confession time.
I seem to make a lot of confessions on this blog. At least food confessions. So why should this post be any different? Confession for this post = appetizers are my downfall. Well, one of my downfalls. If you know of my other confessions, you’d know my other downfall is chocolate. Or brownies… or ice cream… 😉 But seriously, when it comes to big family get-togethers during the holidays, I’m fine with skipping the main dish and filling up on appetizers and dessert.
Thankfully, my kids and hubby share my love of dips and cheese balls, and they’re happy to make an appetizer a meal with me! Some lunches we chow down on hummus and veggies, other days we snack on crackers and popcorn.
Pumpkin spice fruit dip.
This deliciously paleo pumpkin spice fruit dip made its way onto our lunch table with apple slices and crackers the other day, and we devoured it happily. I was a little worried that my husband wouldn’t enjoy it, since he’s not the biggest on pumpkin, but after one bite he announced: “This is fabulous!”
Of course, you don’t need fruits or crackers to enjoy this delicious little dip – a spoon will do just as nicely. Not that I would know… I absolutely never hide in the kitchen and eat dip with a spoon at nap time… never.
With no dairy or sugar, and only a few healthy, nourishing ingredients, there’s no need to feel guilty chowing down on this pumpkin spice fruit dip! So go ahead, fill up on the appetizers… 😉

Pumpkin Spice Fruit Dip
Free from grain, gluten, eggs, dairy, and refined sugar.
- 1 can full fat coconut milk (I used Thai Kitchen)
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (it’s easy to make your own)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- pinch cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (I like to use my homemade extract)
The night before making the dip, set the can coconut milk in the fridge.
In the morning, place a bowl and hand beaters in the freezer.
Open the can and scoop out the coconut cream that has separated to the top of the can. Place it in the chilled bowl and whip with the chilled beaters until thick and fluffy.
Add in remaining ingredients and whip until well mixed.
Serve with apple slices, grapes, graham crackers, cookies, whatever floats your boat.
Store leftovers in the fridge, covered.
