As a frugal mom, avid couponer and cheapskate queen, I have a handful of sites I visit on a daily basis to see what is on sale, etc. One of those sites is Hip2Save. When I popped on there today, I saw this yummy looking recipe for Pumpkin Pie Dip.
You make this dip with just three simple ingredients and serve with vanilla wafers. This would be a tasty treat to take to a church gathering, serve at a get together or just for everyday yumminess.
However, right now I’m trying to limit my carbs and it had just too much sugar in it for me. The good thing? This recipe would be so very easy to make low carb.
- Instead of regular Cool Whip, sub sugar free or make your own heavy whipping cream from scratch (I like the taste of Cool Whip for recipes like this, though).
- Pumpkin is great for you. It is full of fiber and while it does have carbs, they are healthy carbs. You don’t need to change this ingredient at all.
- Instead of regular instant pudding, sub sugar free instant vanilla pudding.
- Instead of regular vanilla wafers, purchase sugar free ones or better yet use some sliced up apples or make your own gluten/sugar free cookies.
Colin, over at Hip2Save suggests adding a pinch of pumpkin spice to the mixture. You can see this is a very simple recipe. Thanks for another fabulous post, Hip2Save. Keep up the good work and we’d love to see more recipes. By the way, if you haven’t checked out that site, it is definitely worth a visit, or two, or three.
