Pumpkin Latte Diva Dessert Dip

Diva Dessert

Happy Almost November Bella Diva

I had to create at least one new pumpkin recipe this year. This one is light dessert for a fun evening with friends or maybe make it a small batch and keep it in the fridge for a treat each day for yourself.

This light and fluffy dessert dip can most definitely satisfy your sweet tooth for a low-calorie and low sugar option.  Besides, its pumpkin!!!

Just keep saying to yourself, its ok to indulge in this dessert..it is pumpkin and pumpkin is a veggie and full fiber!  Ha.   Just remember..portion control is KEY!

Pumpkin Puree

Just FYI, I was told this box of pumpkin puree…YES Box,  that I found at Sur la Tab is the best pumpkin I would ever taste.  Um…YES it IS.  OMG!!!!!!  You must try it while it’s around for the holidays!!!!
