It wouldn’t be fall without an overdose of pumpkin flavor. Pumpkin flavored anything and everything, in fact. But this recipe really takes our fall pumpkin addiction to a new level: pumpkin cream cheese. While Trader Joe’s is known to sell a spiced one, this particular recipe is lighter and can taste more authentically pumpkin. Just what we all need.


What you need

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup of canned pure pumpkin
  • 8 ounces of low fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • salt, to taste



  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients
  2. Mix either by hand or with a blender until desired consistency is reached, creamy and smooth to spread


And voila! Great to spread on bagels, crackers, bread, toast, or used in a dessert or fondue.
