Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
Are you busy making all of the things?
I always talk up the spread I’m going to make for the big day, excited to show my family and friends just how cool plants are even on “turkey day”.
But, if you’re overly ambitious like me, sometimes some of those dishes just don’t get made.
And the important thing is that you show up, yeah?
Well, and that you show up with an epic lazy girl orange offering.
If you’re scrambling for a contribution to bring to your gathering, you really can’t go wrong with a seasonal dip.
This 5-Ingredient Pumpkin Hummus is the perfect spread to whip up in under 10 minutes to wow guests!
So, have you ever done sweet hummus before?
If you’ve tried my Date-Sweetened Dark Chocolate Hummus, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
This pumpkin hummus has got that same sweet and savory appeal– a creamy copper colored dip that’s packed with protein, fiber, and Vitamin A.
It’s nutrient dense while being an oil free and refined sugar free treat.
It tastes like fluffy pumpkin cookie dough batter that you’re ALLOWED to eat.
The five ingredients are simple.
All you need, besides love, is:
- canned pumpkin
- almond butter (or any nut/seed butter)
- maple syrup
- pumpkin pie spice
The instructions are even simpler. Blend, blend, blend.
I found that my hummus was the perfect consistency without any added liquids, but f you need, add a splash of filtered water or almond milk to get the blades moving.
This 5-Ingredient Pumpkin Hummus is best enjoyed…for everything fall.
I love it as a satiating snack, decadent dessert, or party favor!
The recipe is lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup. For a sugar-free alternative, try subbing Medjool dates.
Taste, relish in the yumminess, and add more sweetener as needed for more of a dessert feel!
Shout out to Bare Snacks Cinnamon Apple Chips as the absolute perfection for dipping into this scene.
Bring a bag to share with your family and friends and bond over the fact that these chips have only two ingredients– apples and cinnamon!
Some other ideas for enjoying this hummus are as dip for fresh fruit, spread on crackers or toast, or stuffed into baked sweet potatoes.
If you make this 5-Ingredient Pumpkin Hummus, let me know!
I’d love to see what you spread it on.
Be sure to leave me a comment, rating, and review so I can use your feedback to make more yums.
