  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, unpacked

Method

  1. In a large bowl using an electric mixer, whip cream cheese, pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and brown sugar for a few minutes until fluffy.
  2. Add the lower calorie whip and mix until smooth.

You can further reduce the calories by using fat free cream cheese if you wish, but it tastes better if you use 1/3 fat cream cheese instead.
