InspirationRecipe Diaries Pumpkin Fluff
|Pudding mix plus pumpkin|
- 15 oz can pumpkin puree
- 1 box instant vanilla pudding mix
- pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tub light Cool Whip
DirectionsMix the first three ingredients together really well. At this point you can mix it pretty heartily, but when you add the Cool Whip you need to be a little more delicate so you don't deflate it.
It might help to mix a little bit of the Cool Whip in to lighten up the mixture and then add the rest. You're supposed to let it sit for at least a couple hours, probably to hydrate the pudding mix.
VerdictCreamy, lush, and not too sweet.
If you close your eyes, you would probably say it's a bite of pumpkin pie with Cool Whip on top. When you mix only four ingredients like this it's obvious it's not going to transform into something else, but sometimes it's nice to know exactly what you're getting.
By itself, the fluff is fine, but nothing impressive. Itt is much better when scooped onto spicy, crunchy gingersnap cookies -- they're an excellent counterpart to the soft texture and creamy coolness.
