This hummus isn’t just a snack or appetizer–with the right mix of ingredients, it’s a sweet, creamy dessert that captures the rich flavor of pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pie hummus features autumn favorites like maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin spice and real pumpkin purée.
Break up a few waffle cones on the side for dipping; they will replicate the flavor and texture of a flaky pie crust.
What to Serve With Pumpkin Pie Hummus
In this pumpkin pie dessert hummus recipe, I suggest waffle cones for dipping, but you can dip your hummus with just about any dipper. This includes crackers, chips, toast points, mini breadsticks, pretzels and crusty bread.
You could pair your pumpkin hummus with chocolate hummus at the table to let your guests choose their dessert or mix the flavors together on one waffle cone chip. Serve your hummus with an apple cider or foamy latte to bring out the autumn flavors in this fall dessert.
Once you’ve made your pumpkin pie hummus, store it in the fridge until you’re ready to serve. Refrigerate the leftovers in a sealed container afterward. This recipe also contains dairy products that can spoil quickly. For maximum freshness, eat the hummus within a week or less.
