This pumpkin hummus is very easy to make and is the perfect fall appetizer!

Alright friends, today is all about food and fall food at its best! We are talking delicious fall appetizers and I am joining Kristen at Ella Claire as we share some fun recipes for the season! I am showing you how to make a VERY easy pumpkin hummus dip. It is made with whole food ingredients and is on the sweeter side, so it pairs perfectly with salty crackers, fruit and carrots (although some graham crackers or cinnamon chips would be delicious too)!

Here is what you will need and how I made this easy dip…

Chick peas, spices and pumpkin in bowls on counter.

  • 1 can of garbanzo beans with the liquid from the can.
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (just plain pumpkin, no spices added)
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. ginger spice
  • 1 tsp. clove
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp. date sugar (or regular sugar if you prefer)
  • 1/3 cup of cashew cream (or almond, cow’s cream etc…)

Blender with chick peas and pumpkin in it.

Now comes the easy part…

Simply blend all the ingredients together at the same time! If your dip is a bit too stiff, you can just add a tbsp. of the cream/milk at a time until it is the consistency you want.

You will need to refrigerate your hummus dip until it is nice and cool. While I waited we made some almond crackers to go with the dip.

And while those baked in the oven, we assembled our marble tray of whole food treats. Isn’t nature just so beautiful?! Fruit honestly amazes me and clearly I have gone a little overload with pictures here. I couldn’t resist all the prettiness…

When you are ready to serve your guests you can just put your pumpkin hummus in a bowl and have it placed amongst all the dipping options.

These crackers are so so good by the way! They taste like cheeze-its to me and since I can not have those anymore, these crackers make me very happy ;)… It would be fun to have a herbed option to go with this dip or one with some dried fruit too!

A red apple sliced in half.

Sliced apples and pears were an obvious choice to enjoy dipping. I like to slice them this way as I think it is really elegant (you would want to make sure your guests don’t eat the seeds though, haha).

Purple and orange carrots.

And just look at these colorful carrots! My kiddos gobbled those up quickly, so they must be good!

Figs, pomegranate, hummus and crackers on the counter.

This was such a fast recipe to make and looks like more effort than it really is!

I love appetizers like this that can be enjoyed little by little and are stress free for those hosting.

I think it is safe to say that dips are always a hit at the party and hopefully this sweet one won’t disappoint! It is kind of like having a creamy pumpkin pie on your cracker or fruit.

Everyone here agreed when it was time to taste test and even Wesley thought he was getting a sample too ;).
