Pumpkin Spice Dip Recipe

My kids will definitely eat fruits and veggies by themselves, but for some reason in my head I think that if they have a dip they will eat more.  Kids love to dunk their food into dips, right?  I have discovered that my kids love the dip more than they like the food they are dipping.  So what ends up happening is that they bypass the dipping and just go straight to eating the dip by itself.  The problem is, a lot of the common ‘kid’ dips aren’t very healthy: ketchup, ranch, bbq sauce, fry sauce………full of fat, sodium, and sugar.

The good news is that there are a lot of dips that you can make that are healthy! And this is definitely one of them.  Not to mention delicious.  I was eating it with a spoon.  My kids love hummus and so I decided to put a fall twist on this Pumpkin Spice Dip Recipe.  So yes, this dip is actually a type of hummus.  But you don’t have to tell your kids that.  All they need to know is that it is a delicious dip.  And the part you will love is that you can whip this up in about 10 minutes.  It stores well in the fridge for about a week.  Make it once, eat and repeat (just the eating part).

Put everything into your food processor.  If you have a powerful blender and you want it really smooth,

then you could use your blender over a food processor.

What about sesame butter or apple butter instead of almond? (can’t do almond, peanut, pecans, walnuts in my house due to son’s allergy. Sesame is ok, though!)

Funny story. I totally forgot about this post after I left my comment. It’s been two years and a lot has changed: 1) my son *can* now have almonds/almond butter and 2) over the last 2 years I’ve gotten way more experienced with all kinds of nut and seed butters. After I saw this comment to the comment, I made it that evening with the almond butter. Delish. And I have to say – no reason why this wouldn’t be just as delish with one of the other seed butters (like sunflower butter – which should be ok in a nut free school). 😀

I just made this but I substituted sunbutter instead of almond butter because of my son’s nut allergy. I also added carrot, which gave it just the tiniest bit more sweetness, which I prefer. So delicious! For a treat, spread it on a graham cracker and it tastes just like pumpkin pie!
