PUMPKIN DIP
Yield: 10 servings

Ingredients for your Kroger shopping list:
1 1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
8 ounces non-fat whipped Greek cream cheese, room temperature
3/4 cup vanilla non-fat Greek yogurt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ½ Tablespoons maple syrup
5 small Honeycrisp apples, sliced

Directions:
In a large bowl, combine pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, cream cheese, Greek yogurt, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Beat on medium-high speed until combined and smooth. Transfer to serving bowl and chill for 2 hours. Serve with sliced apples for dipping.

COOK’S NOTES: To make 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, combine 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, 1/8 teaspoon allspice and 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg. To prevent apple slices from browning, store in sealable plastic bag with lemon or orange juice; drain juice before serving. Graham crackers also pair well with this dip.
