My husband does, although you can tell from my blog that I don't have a big sweet tooth! I often find candy wrappers in the laundry, and I know they aren't mine. Sometimes, he even tries to blame the dog. But, on the other hand, I am a savory girl; I've never met a french fry, pizza, or nacho I didn't like. But Vegan Pumpkin "Crack" Dip is pretty fabulous if I do say so myself.
So, being a good wife, I sometimes splurge and make a dessert to keep the candy wrappers at bay. Every Fall, my girlfriend Kim makes pumpkin dip she calls Pumpkin "Crack." The "crack" indicates its addictive component. So, of course, Kim serves her pumpkin "crack "with equally addictive ginger snap cookies.
Unfortunately, the original pumpkin crack dip is 100% fat, full of cream cheese and marshmallow fluff. Since I enjoy a challenge, I decided to try to 'veganize' it. Despite it not being the most healthy dish I've ever made, vegan pumpkin "crack" dip tastes the same as the real version but is entirely vegan.
HOW DO YOU MAKE VEGAN PUMPKIN CRACK DIP?
Not only is this dip easy to make, but it also takes only three ingredients. First, you need to find a vegan version of Cool Whip. Whole Foods, as well as Sprouts, in my neighborhood, carry So Delicious Dairy-Free CocoWhip. For this recipe, I used less sugar variety.
Next, you need vegan vanilla pudding and a can of organic pumpkin puree. Then, add a little extra pumpkin spice, and stir.
And, you have a bowl of pumpkin goodness waiting for dippers! Also, I decided to serve with apples and vegan ginger snap cookies for those who want cookies instead.
There are 6 grams of sugar per serving as far as sugar is concerned, so in my world, this is a Vegan Pumpkin "Crack" Dip treat!
Another one of my hubby's favorite fall desserts is Healthy Vegan Apple Crisp with No Oil. Both recipes are great for Thanksgiving or any fall party.
