The BEST Pumpkin Fluff Recipe

I’ve made lots of fluff recipes in my time, from traditional Watergate salad to fun twists like Oreo Fluff. I love how EASY it is to make fluff! It just takes a few ingredients and a few minutes to make an easy dessert recipe kids and adults love.

I don’t know about you, but we love eating pumpkin recipes all year long. However, in the fall, pumpkin takes on a special meaning: cooler weather, boots, scarves and the holidays. Pumpkin and pumpkin spice are on a heavy rotation in my kitchen September through December each year and Pumpkin Fluff is one of those things we make a lot because it’s easy, tasty and we can do so many things with it.

Jordan likes dipping fruit or graham crackers in pumpkin dip and I love eating it with a spoon. I’ve also put it into a no-bake pie shell to make a pumpkin fluff pie, which is fantastic for a last minute get-together. And when I’m following WW, I love substituting sugar-free ingredients to make Weight Watcher friendly fluff.

5 Ingredient Pumpkin Pie Dip

Pudding Mix: Use instant vanilla or cheesecake pudding mix.

Milk: You’ll need milk to thin it – you can use regular or nonfat.

Cool Whip: Use any variation/brand you like. You can also substitute whipped cream but it won’t last as long.

Pumpkin Puree: Be sure not to buy pumpkin pie mix.

Pumpkin Pie Spice: This gives it that telltale pumpkin pie flavor. Buy it or make DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice.

Weight Watchers Fluff (Sugar Free Pumpkin Dip)

It’s really easy to adapt this recipe to be diet and WW friendly. All you have to do is substitute sugar-free pudding mix and sugar-free whipped topping. It’s SO easy!!

According to a Smart Points calculator I found online, each serving is 2 WW SP with the sugar-free substitutions.

  1. I made this for a senior dinner at church. It was a massive hit, served with ladyfingers. Green apple wedges would be good too.

    I need directions for making it into a pie, so do I need to addd cream cheese to give it more texture?

    1. You can just add it to the pie crust as is! But you can mix in a block of softened cream cheese before mixing in cool whip

  2. Hi Dorothy ,
    The recipe for pumpkin fluff sounds great. Only 1 problem , here in the UK , we can’t get Cool Whip . Any suggestions for a substitute ??

    Thanks ,
